Fox News Host Laura Ingraham Gets Called Out For Defending Drew Brees Years After Telling LeBron James And Kevin Durant To ‘Shut Up And Dribble’

Fox News host Laura Ingraham is getting crushed on Twitter for not being consistent with her views on athletes expressing their political opinions.

Two years ago, Ingraham infamously told LeBron James and Kevin Durant to “shut up and dribble” and keep their political viewpoints to themselves in a segment on her show “The Ingraham Angle”.

“It’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball,” she said. “Keep the political comments to yourselves. … Shut up and dribble.”

Despite her previous comments about LeBron and Durant, Ingraham went on her show last night and defended Drew Brees, who has found himself in hot water when he said that players who kneel during the anthem to protest police brutality are “disrespecting the flag”.

“He’s allowed to have his view about what kneeling and the flag means to him. He’s a person.”

Ingraham was immediately criticized over her double standard with regards to players’ political opinions.
