Fox News’ Laura Ingraham scolded as she breaks rules in Trump trial courtroom

While former President Donald Trump reportedly got some shuteye during day 17 of his New York hush money trial Tuesday, Fox News’ host Laura Ingraham’s eyes were wide open.

The Daily Beast reports Ingraham had a pair of binoculars with her in the courtroom, and was told several times to stop using them.

Although binoculars are not, “strictly speaking, banned in the courtroom,” according to the Beast, they are “banned when evidence is being shown to legal counsel before being presented to the jury — which is exactly when the Fox News host whipped them out.”

The news outlet reported, “Several court officers repeatedly tried and failed to get Ingraham’s attention as she stared through the binoculars, apparently zoned out. ‘Ma’am! You can’t use binoculars. No binoculars, ma’am. Ma’am. Hello!'”

A Daily Beast reporter looked on as Ingraham “let out a surprised huff and threw the binoculars down,” the report notes.

On the first day of Trump’s trial last month, Ingraham “raised eyebrows” after comments she made to millions of Fox News viewers regarding Trump’s relationship with Daniels.

“Stormy Daniels thought she had leverage over Trump back in 2016 and she used that leverage to extract some money,” the right-wing host said. “Like other politicians who had made embarrassing mistakes, Donald Trump was apparently trying to get that episode behind him.”

Legal analyst Bradley Moss shared a clip of Ingraham’s remarks via X, writing, “Wait, is Ingraham admitting that Trump had the affair? Because Trump certainly hasn’t admitted that.”
