    Well, I guess that leaves no doubt about the base that’s supporting Trump.
    Waiting on the spin-machine to have its way with this image.

    Paging Mr. Godwin.

  2. Jason330 says:

    I’d have to see the video to see if it was a salute or an awkward wave.

  3. Liberal Elite says:

    She’s a real nasty piece of work.

  4. Brian says:

    @j you may have a point..but how does one “awkwardly” wave? Your palm should be visible to the people you are waving to. As much of a nutjob as Ingraham is, she isn’t stupid she knows what she did.

  5. jason330 says:

    That looks like an intentional Nazi salute to me. Then, to give a little deniability maybe, she turns and awkwardly waves.

  6. Brian says:

    I’m pretty sure she also knew exactly what picture of Trump would be behind her on the stage at the end of her speech. They’re not just playing a rotating slide-show of Trump pics.

    Seeing this shit… Well, I think Ted Cruz is a disgusting bag of mostly water, but I have to give him props for having the fortitude to go on stage and deliver the speech he did instead of the “Sieg Heil, Mein Fuhrer!” that every other Republican politician, talking head, angry white military parent, and F-list actor have done over the past four days…

    2020 rolls around, Cruz, and Kasich as well, are the only ones of the current crop, who can say they didn’t support this monstrosity of a person and campaign. Granted, they are ardent supporters of the political party that created the whole fiasco, but there’s plenty of wiggle room… So nice strategery there…

    “Why can’t we have good, honest political debates?”
    “Because you take pictures of people waving and pretend they were doing a Hitler salute.”

  9. Jason330 says:

    I haven’t heard them, but knowing her persona, I’m sure the picture is nothing compared to the fascist gist of Ingraham’s comments.

  10. Delaware Dem says:

    No, LashLarue, we can’t have nice things because of your fascist party, which has spent decades, if not centuries, playing up bigoted resentments and a desire for authoritarianism. We can’t have nice things because of the constant lies from your side about President Barack Obama and his successor, Hillary Clinton.

    We can’t have nice things because, yes, you are actual Nazis.

  11. Liberal Elite says:

    @LL “Because you take pictures of people waving and pretend they were doing a Hitler salute.”

    FYI – It was a full stop salute.
    There is no way you can laugh this off as a “wave”.

  12. Stat says:

    @DD. You might want to have a mental evaluation. This election is pushing you way off the rails. You have neighbors, friends and even family that are GOP. They can’t all be nazis.

  13. LashLarue says:

    @DD: My side? My party? You’re a litte bit unhinged.

    Various media pics of Democrats/Hillary out there giving the same “wave” Ingraham did last night.

    We can play this stupid game all day long.

  14. Liberal Elite says:

    @LL “Various media pics of Democrats/Hillary out there giving the same “wave” Ingraham did last night.”

    A typical Republican lie, and you know it. Liar.
