Laura Ingraham

We're nearly three years into one of the worst pandemics to hit the country--and the world--in the last hundred years. Even though vaccines and booster shots are readily available, we're still forced to endure a never-ending flood of ignorance and sickening misinformation from far-right psychopaths. Among those far-right psychopaths is Laura Ingraham of Fox News. Much like her equally awful co-worker Tucker Carlson, Ingraham has devoted airtime to constantly spreading lies and misinformation about the vaccine, which is pretty odd when considering that her chief demographic is the vulnerable elderly population.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, and CNN reports that Gen. David Berger, commandant of the Marine Corps, also tested positive. While most sane and decent human beings would want to wish the American generals well, Ingraham chose to delight in Milley getting Covid.

Here was Ingraham as she shared the news with her viewers last night during a recurring segment, "Positively Boosted." Yes, she actually has a segment called "Positively Boosted."

INGRAHAM: All right, the triple-vaxxed Joint Chief[s] chairman Mark Milley – our favorite, Mark Milley! – tested positive for Covid yesterday. And who else? General David Berger, the Marine Corps commandant, also positively boosted.

Worse yet, she still seems to blatantly disregard the fact that vaccines offer people far greater protection against the virus, which allows them to avoid hospitalization or death. Ingraham isn’t a fan of Milley, however. In fact, she considers him a "woke Marxist,” but her "Positively Boosted" segment isn’t just about cheering the misfortune of incredibly moderate conservatives like Milley. Sadly, it's a huge part of an ongoing right-wing disinformation campaign against the efficacy of vaccines. Milley and Berger are both working from home, and Milley has reported only “minor symptoms.” Marine Col. Kelly Frushour said Berger’s duties should remain “unaffected.”

But leave it to one of the biggest hacks and Trump humpers to behave callously while serving nothing but disinformation to millions.

Watch the segment below:

They were accompanied by additional paperwork claiming that 15,000 absentee ballots had been illegally mailed to voters before the county’s 2020 presidential election.
