  • Laura Ingraham may play Clinton in Trump debate practice: report

    The Hill ^ | 8/27/2016 | Nikita Vladimirov
    Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham may play the role of Hillary Clinton in Donald Trump’s prerpation for the upcoming presidential debates, according to the Washington Post. Trump is meeting with Ingraham, former Fox News Channel chairman Roger Ailes, and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani to talk over possible debate preparation strategies, the Post reported. Some top officials within the campaign have hinted at an unconventional debate prep strategy. “He’s an unconventional candidate, so debate prep in the classic sense doesn’t apply to him,” campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told the Post. “That applies to the accoutrements that are usually associated...

    CLEVELAND, OHIO—Laura Ingraham electrified the Q more than any speaker of the convention thus far. She shamed flag-burners. She hated on man buns and skinny jeans. She threw shade at Ted Cruz, implying he didn't have the stones to formally endorse Trump tonight. Ingraham, a conservative talk radio host who quite literally makes her living in media, chastised "the media" for being wrong—wrong all along!—about The Donald. She had the crowd roaring, even more jazzed than in the 7 o'clock hour when G.E. Smith and the house band cruised through a nifty mash-up of "My Sharona" and "Gimme Some Lovin'."...

    “He’s not a conservative.” That’s Rush Limbaugh talking about Jeb Bush. “The ideal, the perfect ticket, for the 2016 election: Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush. Now, they can figure out who’s on top of the ticket on their own, but when you compare their positions, Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, on the key, important issues, they are two peas in the same pod.” That, too. “You know what Jeb Bush is? He’s an old-time liberal Republican.” That’s Mark Levin . “If I had to bet right now, he’d be the nominee; and if I had to bet right now, he’ll lose.”...

"Why don't we just call it quits, and Jeb and Hillary can run on the same ticket," she said to applause. Ingraham's criticism reflects the way that conservative base is skeptical of Bush, who has locked down the support of many establishment...
