Kate McKinnon's Laura Ingraham Has New Sponsors You've Never Heard Of

Kate McKinnon's Laura Ingraham Has New Sponsors You've Never Heard Of”

Cashback website Ebates has pulled its advertising from "The Ingraham Angle", becoming at least the 27th sponsor to exit Laura Ingraham's Fox News show, and the second to do so on Friday.

Other "replacement" advertisers that McKinnon proudly announces include Lady Bump Stock, Reverse Mortgage, Malaysian Airlines, and Cream Soda.

"The soda for whites", she said "The white one, baby".

"Ingraham" also touted Shkreli's Jelly, named after "Pharma Bro" and Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli, who was roasted after he raised the price of a potentially lifesaving medication from $13.50 a pill to $750. "It's just jelly that's $8,000 a jar". He was convicted last year of defrauding his investors of $10 million and sentenced to seven years in prison. That was the show's highest monthly rating since it launched in October. Ingraham took delight in Hogg's rejections from various colleges, and her behavior only came across as bullying. But the many, many advertisers fleeing the program is not good news for her at all, which opened the door for SNL to nail her on Saturday's show.

Fox News has defended Ingraham. "After spewing venom for decades, Twitter suddenly has made me accountable OK", she said while rolling her eyes. Jost is skeptical of the products, but McKinnon's Ingraham assures him that these are actual products, and she won't be cowed.

"It's my right to bully people without being bullied in return", Ingraham says of sponsors bowing out of her show in droves following her attack on Hogg. By contrast, data from the tracking firm Kantar showed that "The Ingraham Angle" averaged 14 and a half minutes of ads prior to the boycott campaign.

When Jost asked whether the sponsors were real, she said, "What do you want me to say?"
