Fox News host Laura Ingraham began her segment on the Jan. 6 committee by mocking the police officers who testified before Congress.
The host who "purports to back the blue" tore them down and beat them with her unique style of cruel mockery. Ingraham, who has never served in uniform, fought in a war, been beaten and tased, or even reported from a war zone, gave the top award to Officer Michael Fanone, who she accused of giving a "performance" when addressing Congress.
It isn't surprising that Ingraham hasn't seen previous interviews with Fanone that have appeared on CNN. His descriptions are consistent and his anxiety has been on full display from the beginning. Over time, things appear to have gotten better, with Fanone making it through videos and descriptions without breaking down. That wasn't always the case.
Still, Ingraham thought the right decision was to mock the men.

YouGov did their annual ranking of U.S. presidents revealing that former President Donald Trump still isn't the popular president he wants to be.
According to the new rankings, Abraham Lincoln is still the No. 1 guy, much to the chagrin of the Confederacy.
The typical founding fathers are all in the top ten, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. It also isn't surprising that the founder of Social Security and Medicare also ranks at number seven. Barack Obama is eight and Ronald Reagan is nine. Harry Truman is ten with Joe Biden not too far behind, even after being in office for just six months.
The positive for Donald Trump is that he ranks higher than the genocidal Andrew Jackson and Great Depression founder Herbert Hoover.
Trump is also higher than disgraced former President Richard Nixon. William Howard Taft is also below Trump. While Taft may have done important government things, he is generally only remembered by school children as the one who got stuck in the White House bathtub.

Among the many insulting things Tucker Carlson said about the police officers who testified before Congress Tuesday, he laughed at Officer Michael Fanone for having PTSD after being beaten unconscious.
During his show, Carlson cast doubt on Fanone's claims of having PTSD after he reported having no such traumas last year after serving during the Black lives Matter protests in Washington, D.C. last summer.
Carlson then implied that Fanone was lying about his suffering now, although the Capitol riots were the only documented time over the last year that Fanone was beaten until he lost consciousness, which is significantly more traumatic than his work policing the BLM protests.
Carlson's dismissal of Fanone's trauma earned him instant scorn -- check out some reactions below.
