Back in April, Fox News host Laura Ingraham found an unlikely ally in Bill Maher.
The Real Time host, who is no fan of Fox News, defended Ingraham when Parkland student David Hogg, who is a teen school shooting survivor, called for advertisers to boycott her program after she’d mocked him for not getting into his first-choice colleges.
“I want to defend Laura Ingraham,” said Maher. “I know it sounds ridiculous, but it has to do with the Parkland kids and guns and free speech… Again, he is in the arena, and then he calls for a boycott of her sponsors. Really? Is that American? He complains about bullying? That’s bullying! I have been the victim of a boycott… I’ve lost a job as a result. It is wrong. You shouldn’t do this by team, you should do it by principle.”
