Watch SNL's Kate McKinnon Take on Laura Ingraham and Fox News in Hilarious Boycott Sketch

Laura Ingraham is back from her “pre-scheduled vacation” and still under intense boycott from sponsors.


Her ratings have gone up, though—which has Conservative media crowing and some advertisers, like Ace Hardware, returning.

Kate McKinnon played the talk show host on Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update and nailed the impression.

“After spewing venom for decades, Twitter has suddenly made me accountable?” she said.

She introduced some new sponsors, like Carl’s Sr. and Lady Bump Stock, “the lightweight bump stock for delicate hands.”

“The totalitarian left can attack me all they want,” she said. “But I will continue to protect the First Amendment: that’s my right to bully people without being bullied in return.”
