Mayor Pugh Takes on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham

Fox News anchor grilled Baltimore mayor about gun control, education, and safety in Baltimore.

Last night, Mayor Catherine Pugh appeared on Fox News’s conservative program, “The Ingraham Angle” hosted by Laura Ingraham to discuss her plans for transporting Baltimore City school students to the “March for Our Lives” anti-gun rally in Washington D.C. on March 24. The first two minutes of the interview went smoothly as Pugh detailed her reasons for getting involved and the passion of the students who participated.

It all went downhill from there.

In a combative eight-minute conversation—that was cringe-worthy to say the least—Ingraham and Pugh took turns talking over one another in what could best be described as unintelligible babbling. With Ingraham throwing statistics at Pugh about the $130-million school budget deficit and Pugh’s snide rebuttals such as, “You should get your facts straight, love,” it became unbearable to watch.

After what felt like a never-ending debate about Baltimore’s financial problems, Ingraham went in for a final punch by saying that liberals like Pugh are the reason for the city’s problems. As Pugh continued to defend her decision to bus the students to the rally, Ingraham continued to throw shade by saying: “OK well if you want to be safer, don’t spend a lot of time late at night on the streets of Baltimore.” 

The split screen disappeared and left only an image of Ingraham with a look of victory on her face.
