'This is a bit': Watch Laura Ingraham melt down because she doesn’t know there’s a show on Netflix called 'You'
Far-right Fox News pundits Laura Ingraham could not wrap her head around Raymond Arroyo's reference to the Netflix program "You," resulting in a complete breakdown of their segment on Monday night's "The Ingraham Angle."
Arroyo, discussing the Netflix series "You," told Ingraham, "I was watching an episode of 'You' where measles came up" — and Ingraham, sounding puzzled, responded, "Wait, wait, wait, when did I mention measles?.... What was on me? What are you talking about? I never had measles."
Arroyo reiterated, "It was on 'You,'" and Ingraham — who sounded like she thought he was talking about her program — responded, "We never did a measles and vaccine episode. Is this a joke?.... I've never had measles."

Arroyo explained, "It was an episode of a show, Laura." And when Ingraham asked, "What's it called?" an increasingly frustrated Arroyo responded, "'You,' it's called 'You'…. There's a show called 'You' on 'Netflix.'"
Ingraham still didn't comprehend — or at pretended she didn't — when she asked Arroyo, "There's a show called 'Laura Ingraham' on Netflix?" And Arroyo finally gave up, changing the subject.
Twitter user @AJPennyfarthing, upon seeing the "Ingraham Angle" segment, noted its Abbott and Costello "Who's On First?" element and posted an old black-and-white video of the pair doing that routine in 1945:

Yahoo News' Andi Ortiz wondered if the Ingraham/Arroyo exchange was real or staged, writing, "The only question is, was it actually real?" And Arroyo posted:
Trust me, it was totally intentional! https://twitter.com/cmonman77177847/status/1460455358485479431\u00a0\u2026— Raymond Arroyo (@Raymond Arroyo) 1637034774
Liberal firebrand and former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann was certain that the routine was staged, posting:
