Fox’s Laura Ingraham Attacks Impeachment Witness For Drinking Water At Hearing
Running out of excuses to defend Donald Trump, Fox News hosts appear to have been reduced to attacking the impeachment witnesses… for drinking water.
Right-wing host Laura Ingraham and network contributor Raymond Arroyo were stunned on Wednesday night as they mulled over footage of an impeachment inquiry witness drinking water.
Ingraham and Arroyo attacked State Department official George Kent for bringing a large water bottle to a testimony scheduled for several hours in a committee room near the Capitol yesterday.
The host of The Ingraham Angle said she thought Kent’s bottle was an oxygen chamber while Arroyo called it a “water tower.”
“He drank a lot of water Laura. I mean fish are not this hydrated,” Arroyo said.
“What is this?” Ingraham replied as footage of Kent drinking water was played. “Is he on the treadmill? What is this with the water bottle? Do you guys see that?”
“It’s amazing,” Arroyo said. “It was like a medical-sized water tower.”
“I thought he had an oxygen chamber or something,” Ingraham replied.
She also said the first two witnesses to give testimony in front of cameras, George Kent and the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine Bill Taylor, were “Deep State Department” witnesses, seeking to smear their credibility.
