Fox News host Laura Ingraham criticized conservative columnist George Will on Twitter Friday for penning a Washington Post column calling for Americans to vote against Republicans in November because of Trump.
“Sad and petty,” Ingraham wrote about Will’s column.

“The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of Republican control,” wrote Will in the Washington Post column entitled “Vote Against The GOP In November,” adding that the president “attracts, and is attracted to, louts.” (RELATED: George Will: GOP Support For Trump Is Out Of Fear)
“So, to vote against his party’s cowering congressional caucuses is to affirm the nation’s honor while quarantining him,” he continued. “A Democratic-controlled Congress would be a basket of deplorables, but there would be enough Republicans to gum up the Senate’s machinery, keeping the institution as peripheral as it has been under their control and asphyxiating mischief from a Democratic House. And to those who say, ‘But the judges, the judges!’ the answer is: Article III institutions are not more important than those of Articles I and II combined.”
Ingraham also responded to a segment suggesting that Paul Ryan and other Republicans are the president’s “poodles.”
