Fox News co-hosts Jesse Watters and Laura Ingraham asserted on Tuesday that there are “no scandals” that would cause voters to reject Republicans in the midterm elections.
Prior to polls closing on election night, Watters suggested to Ingraham that President Donald Trump’s era has been scandal free — unlike previous administrations.
“The Republicans have held the House for the last 20 of 24 years,” Watters explained. “You know, they only lost in 2006 as some of the scandals and the Iraq war was dragging on, but they got it back after Pelosi and Obama overreached.”
“Do you see right now — with no recession, no scandals, hot economy — do you see any reason substantively for Republicans to lose the House?” Watters asked.
“It was back to the scare tactics on Obamacare,” Ingraham said of the Democratic strategy. “That’s the one policy they really focused on. The separation of the kids at the border, I don’t think most people are going to vote on that.”
“I think most of the resistance voters out there are resisting the tone of Trump,” she continued. “They are resisting his personality. It’s like they are putting blinders on to all the great — there’s never a better time to be in America than today!”
According to Ingraham, “the left is so jacked to send a message to the president that, ‘Oh, no, we’re not going to be fooled again. We were embarrassed in 2016. We’re going to embarrass you now.’ It’s personal with the left.”
She added: “And Republicans are all about charts and numbers and G.D.P. — the art of the storytelling is sometimes lost on Republicans.”

‘Irony and Outrage’: How different — and how similar — are Samantha Bee and Fox News?
Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly are masters of outrage — not just the emotion, but a genre of political theater — just as Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart are masters of ironic satire. They’re poles apart, and yet — ironically or outrageously — they’re profoundly similar, both in how they’re impacting their audiences, and why their genres emerged when they did. That’s perhaps the central thesis of “Irony and Outrage: The Polarized Landscape of Rage, Fear, and Laughter in the United States,” by Dannagal Goldthwaite Young, who’s both a professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Delaware and an improv comedian with the troupe ComedySportz Philadelphia. That’s among the many different hats she wears.
