As the nation faces a massive cultural shift and woman across the country come forward with their stories of rape, harassment and abuse, Fox News pundit Laura Ingraham worries that the real victims are going to be “this season’s Christmas parties.”
ShareBlue.com reported that Ingraham believes that a heightened awareness of the dynamics of sexual assault and harassment is going to take all the “fun” out of the season.
“Is the #MeToo movement becoming a spoiler for this season’s Christmas parties?” Ingraham asked comedian Jimmy Failla.
Citing some companies’ decision to limit alcohol consumption at professional gatherings, Ingraham said, “I can see this year it might be — a little less festive, let’s say that. No alcohol and no fun and no lampshades and, I don’t know, maybe that’s better.”
“Is this just killing all the fun of Christmas?” she demanded.
“The segment would be wholly inappropriate on any network, but it’s especially galling given Fox News’ own sordid history with workplace sexual harassment,” wrote Caroline Orr. “Several of the most prominent men employed by Fox News have been forced out in the past two years over allegations of workplace sexual assault and harassment, including founder and former CEO Roger Ailes, along with hosts Bill O’Reilly and Eric Boiling.”

MSNBC guest ridicules Trump-fan Steve Cortes as possible Sarah Sanders replacement: ‘He’s a nut — have you seen him on TV?’
Discussing the departure of Donald Trump's spokesperson Sarah Sanders from the White House, an MSNBC panel surveyed her possible replacements with one ridiculed for his appearances on TV defending the president.
Speaking with "AM Joy" fill-in host Jonathan Capehart, The Beat DC editor Tiffany Cross shot former Trump associate Stever Cortes -- a regular on CNN -- down as a possible candidate.
"There are names that are out there," Capehart suggested. "[Meliania Trump spokesperson] Stephanie Grisham and Hogan Gidley and Steve Cortes."
Pointing out that Grisham is the most likely contender, and the Trump would probably prefer a woman, Cross called out Cortes for his TV appearances.

CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday disagreed with the notion that President Donald Trump and Russians tried to "suppress" Democratic votes by engaging in what he called large-scale voter "discouragement."
During a panel discussion on CNN, Democratic analyst Jennifer Granholm slammed Trump's campaign for "voter suppression."
"The thing that concerns me about the launch, Jake, of this new — of his re-election [campaign], he has already raised $100 million," Granholm said of Trump. "His campaign manager, Brad Parscale, who ran the digital campaign last time around, said that this time this campaign is going to be bigger, better and badder."
