Fox News host Laura Ingraham failed to hide her frustration as she covered the defeat of Donald Trump-backed GOP candidate Herschel Walker in the Georgia Senate runoff election on Tuesday night.
“I’m pissed tonight, frankly,” said Ingraham, a longtime Trump booster who has recently appeared to sour slightly on the former president.
“I’m mad,” she added.
Warnock’s victory hands Democrats a 51-seat majority in the Senate. The GOP in last month’s midterms won a similarly razor-thin majority in the House.
Ingraham earlier accused Senate Republicans of not fully backing former football star Walker against incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D), even though the ex-athlete was frequently accompanied by high-profile GOP figures for his TV appearances.
“There wasn’t the intensity on the part of the Republicans as there was on the part of the Democrats,” she railed.
“But we don’t change anything. We have the same people in place in leadership,” the right-wing personality continued. “The same people in place, apparently at the RNC, perhaps that’s not changing. We are doing the same thing over and over again.”
