Radio host Laura Ingraham responded on her Facebook page on Wednesday after fellow talk show host Ed Schultzmade controversial comments calling her a derogatory name during his radio program on Monday.
Re. the crude comments made about me by Ed Schultz on his radio program: First, I was surprised to learn that Ed Schultz actually hosted a radio show. Is it only available online? Second, I have to get back to recording the audio edition of my new book Of Thee I Zing. Now I'm tempted to insert one additional zing--about men who preach civility but practice misogyny.
On his program on Wednesday, Schultz apologized.
I am deeply sorry and I apologize. It was wrong, uncalled for and I recognize the severity of what I said. I apologize to you, Laura, and ask for your forgiveness, he said. On his program he said his comments were terribly vile.
Schultz was suspended by his cable news channel MSNBC for a week over the matter.
Ingraham accepted the apology on her program.
On Monday, Schultz was in the middle of a rant against Ingraham for choosing to discuss President Barack Obama's beer drinking in Ireland even as extreme weather was hitting parts of the U.S. Midwest.
President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Missouri on Sunday but you know what they're talking about? Like this right-wing slut Laura Ingraham. Yeah, she's a talk slut.
You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama's doing it, they're working him over, he said.
Schultz said Ingraham was praising former Republican President Ronald Reagan he 'drank a beer overseas. But now that Obama's doing it, they're working him over.
