Ingraham, the popular talk show host at the top of the list to serve in the Trump Administration
Laura Ingraham, one of the most important conservative voices in United States politics has shot to the top of the list to be President elect Donald Trump’s White House press secretary. Ingraham, whose popular nationally syndicated radio talk show is heard here on News Talk Florida flagship station WWBA 820 AM.
She wouldn’t comment on the report and said that any requests for information should go through the Trump campaign. The last member of the media to serve as the White House press secretary was former Fox News anchor, the late Tony Snow who served George W. Bush in 20026.
The Hill, was the first to report last night that Ingraham had talked with the campaign about the joining the admiration. She, assisted Trump with debate preparation, offered occasional strategic advice, and campaigned for the Republican candidate, using her spots as Fox News contributor.
Only Fox News host Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter and Breitbart, were as active a supporter’s for a Donald Trump for President as was Ingraham.
She used her profile as a Fox News contributor, her nationally syndicated radio show and her website LifeZette.com to advocate on his behalf. Trump also tapped into Ingraham’s years of dirt-digging on the Clintons to sharpen his attacks on the Democratic nominee.
This past week, she has been twitter-shaming President Obama for not intervening to stop the violent protests against the November elections results. “Where is Pres Obama urging calm?” she tweeted on Saturday.
If she is installed as White House Press Secretary, expect her to be more active and not just delivering reports to the media. As The Hill put it, “Selecting Ingraham would send a signal that Trump has no interest in softening his relationships with the Republican leaders in Washington, D.C.”
President elect Trump and his inner circle have a great respect for Ingraham. They view her as tough, admire her rhetorical skills, and believe she’d powerfully convey Trump’s anti-establishment message.
