Fox News host Laura Ingraham finally criticized President Donald Trump, but Twitter users were all too eager to point out the irony and hypocrisy of her critique.
On Tuesday, Trump praised Chinese President Xi Jinping and claimed to have “unlimited” respect him.
When the time is right we will make a deal with China. My respect and friendship with President Xi is unlimited but, as I have told him many times before, this must be a great deal for the United States or it just doesn’t make any sense. We have to be allowed to make up some…..

The problem is that China has some of the worst human rights violations in the world, something Ingraham pointed out in response.
“Unlimited respect” for a president who locks up a million plus dissidents, Muslims and Christians in internment camps? Who oversees a brutal assault on freedom 24/7? Why? https://t.co/ayEwVllugx

Unfortunately, she conveniently ignored the fact that Trump has placed thousands of migrant children in internment camps here at home after kidnapping them from their parents, which is a crime against humanity.
Trump has also said the same flattering things about Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, who has journalists and political opponents murdered. And let’s not forget Trump’s undying love for North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, whose human rights abuses go beyond brutal.
Twitter users quickly informed Ingraham of her hypocrisy.
Excellent questions. https://t.co/ZdUJqHjrsA

Can’t seem to find your tweets with similar comments every time Trump slides his tongue up Kim Jong Un’s ass.

I honestly thought she was talking about Trump locking up children and asylum seekers at first.
Birds of a feather, eh?

I don’t recall seeing your outrage over his similar statements about KIM JONG-UN.

It seems Laura is shocked over this even though dotard @realDonaldTrump gives the same respect to Kim-Jung UN and every other oppressive leader in power like the Saudi prince, Putin, all murderers of their own people and others. i’m shocked that she is shocked.

If Ingraham really cares about human rights issues, she should be railing against Trump’s own human rights abuses. Because our nation can’t possibly criticize human rights records in other countries without our own record being thrown in our faces.
