Right wing hate talker and Faux “news” regular Laura Ingraham apparently thought his little shtick of hers was so cute that she repeated it again later in the day on her radio show. While discussing President Obama’s meeting with civil rights leaders this week and the announcement that his administration is seeking funding for police body cameras and more training for police officers.
Naturally this drew howls of outrage from the right with cries about where the money is going to come from and Laura Ingraham with her fangs on full display on this Monday’sFox & Friends.
From Fox’s blog: ‘How About We Put a Body Camera on the President?’:
How about we put a body camera on President Obama?
That was Laura Ingraham’s response this morning on “Fox and Friends” to the president’s support for police officers around the country to wear body cameras in order to record their every move.
Ingraham argued that Obama should wear one so Americans can see how much time he actually spends each day on improving the economy.
“I’m all in favor of spending money on that body camera,” she said, adding that the president’s proposed $263 million in spending on police training is another example of him trying to throw money at a problem.
“There’s never anything that happens in the country that the president doesn’t believe can be fixed by spending more money and getting America deeper into debt,” said Ingraham, questioning where that money will actually come from.
Steve Doocy joked that those videos would be good broadcasts for the Golf Channel since the president spends so much time on the course.
Ingraham said she believes putting body cameras on police officers is an interesting idea, but in the case in Ferguson, it would have “vindicated” officer Darren Wilson long ago.
She called on President Obama to speak “truths” to people about what the evidence shows occurred, instead of spreading mistrust.
“It would be nice if the President of the United States, with all his education and all of his wisdom and all of his experience, actually spoke truths to people,” said Ingraham.
