Laura Ingraham weighs in on the broader purpose of the various investigations into alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Ingraham noted all the ‘Ruskiphobes’ currently in the media that inhabit the Acela corridor were the first ones to defend the Soviets in the 1980s and weren’t anywhere to be found when Reagan was trying to take on the Soviet Union.

Ingraham then said people in the country, including Democrats, really believe Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with the Russian ambassador to plot to “rig the election.” The conservative talker said this comes down to a “bitter” media that are “ticked off” and “livid” that they blew the entire election and now want Trump “out at all costs.”

“This is in the views of, I think, millions of Americans a bitter, really ticked off media who are livid that they blew the entire election season. They blew it. They missed what was happening in the country. They’re angry about it and they want to be vindicated. They want Trump out of office. This is a dominant theme among many people in the media, some Republicans I actually think, and a lot of Democrats,” Ingraham said.

From Tuesday night’s broadcast of Special Report on the FOX News Channel:

LAURA INGRAHAM: I talk to millions of people every week on the radio from all 50 states. And a lot of them are conservative but not all of them. There are a lot of people who are not all that political, we do a lot of different topics, culture and so forth.

And there is this Acela corridor obsession with Russia, and a lot of it coming from people who, frankly when conservatives needed their help in the ’80s, when we were in college, when Reagan was trying to be tough with the Soviet Union, they were the first ones to defend the Soviets.

And now, there are suddenly a lot of Ruskiphobes in the media. Not to say that Vladimir Putin isn’t a horrible person. I think he is. But I think a lot of people are scratching their heads saying wait a second. They’ve been watching this Jeff Sessions guy. Some guy meeting with the Russian ambassador trying to figure out how to rig the election? No one really believes that.

I don’t think the Democrats believe that.

This is in the views of, I think, millions of Americans a bitter, really ticked off media who are livid that they blew the entire election season. They blew it. They missed what was happening in the country. They’re angry about it and they want to be vindicated. They want Trump out of office. This is a dominant theme among many people in the media, some Republicans I actually think, and a lot of Democrats.

They want him out at all costs. And sometimes Trump has helped them by tweeting things he shouldn’t have tweeted and probably getting a little upset about what he thinks is unfair.
