Americans Appalled After Laura Ingraham ‘Saves’ Trump After He Makes Disgusting Analogy in Interview

Oh, to have friends in high places!

Laura Ingraham quickly jumped in during her interview with Donald Trump in an attempt to rescue him from a hideous analogy he was making, where he compared police officers who use lethal force to …golf?

During the Fox News interview, Ingraham discussed the nationwide protests and unrest that has followed Floyd’s death and Blake’s recent shooting. But she framed her question around the dangers that police face, claiming that she thought it was more dangerous to be a cop now than it has been in “a long time.”

“It’s more dangerous to be a police officer today, do you not think than it has been a long time?” Ingraham said.

“The police are under siege,” Trump then claimed. “They can do 10,000 great acts, which is what they do, and one bad apple or a choker — a joker — they choke.”

“You mean, they, they panic,” Ingraham helpfully clarified.

“You know, I mean, in the meantime, he might’ve been going for a weapon. And you know there’s a whole big thing there. But they choke, just like in a golf tournament, they miss a 3-foot putt…” Trump said.

“You’re not comparing it to golf,” Ingraham quickly jumped in, as Trump was comparing police brutality to golf. “Because of course that’s what the media would say…people make, people panic,” she then added, steering Trump away from the golf analogy while nodding her head.

“I’m saying people choke,” Trump insisted, without disavowing his comparison. “And people are bad people. You have both. If you have some bad people and they choke. You could be a police officer for 15 years and all of a sudden you’re confronted. You’ve got a quarter of a second to make a decision. If you don’t make the decision and you’re wrong, you’re dead. People choke under those circumstances and they make a bad decision. I’ve seen bad decisions of people that, it looked bad, but probably it was a choke. But you also have bad police, but you also, the vast, not only the vast majority, but thousands and thousands of great acts, and you make the evening news for weeks.”

People were sickened:
