WATCH: GOP Senator Brutally Fact Checks Laura Ingraham on Infrastructure Bill
When it comes to Fox News, nothing introduced by Democrats could possibly be a good thing. Even when it is something that both Republicans an Democrats agree on. Take infrastructure, for example. Voters of both parties like the idea of fixing things that are broken and creating a ton of jobs.
But passing a bi-partisan bill would be a big feather in Joe Biden’s cap. So Laura Ingraham tried to slam the idea during her Monday night show. Louisiana senator Bill Cassidy, though, brutally fact checked her on her opposition to the bill.
Ingraham said to the GOP lawmaker, “The White House is, as I said, quite giddy about this. Reuters describes this as a glide path to the $3.5 trillion tonight in their write up of this, senator.”
Cassidy responded, “It is the person in my state stuck in traffic who’s fearful of their home flooding, who wants to have a better job, that actually would like to make more money but doesn’t make a lot of money now, who really likes this bill. I talked to Fox News watchers. They love this bill.”
After some back and forth, the Louisiana lawmaker told the Fox host, “The ironic thing you are agreeing with the Squad and Bernie. It’s amazing, you’re agreeing with Pelosi. We think this makes that behemoth less likely to pass.”
