Laura Ingraham's Segment Slamming Democrats For Using 'Political Props' While At The D-Day Cemetery Was So Tone-Deaf And Ironic It Hurts

Fox News host Laura Ingraham used the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France as a backdrop for her program on Wednesday night and laughed her way through the show.

In the show's "Seen and Unseen" segment, she and Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo slammed 2020 Democratic candidates and accused them of using children as "pathetic political props."

But the irony was not lost on the irreverent hosts, as they used the headstones of fallen heroes as props of their own.

The Fox host exploited the commemoration of D-Day, which took place on June 6, 1944, on the beaches of Normandy on the northern coast of France. This year marks the 75th anniversary of one of the largest seaborne invasions in history.

But instead of discoursing on the historical event, Ingraham and Arroyo cackled together after showing a clip of an 11-year-old asking former Vice President Joe Biden about impeachment proceedings.

She joked:

"Kids say the darndest things!"

Politicians using children as props for political gain

The classless duo showed another clip in which a young girl asked South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg how he plans to beat Trump, to which the candidate said "He's mean" and "calls people names."

A flabbergasted Arroyo remarked that Democrats were "demonizing" their opponents and likened the candidates to bullying.

Ingraham quipped:

"Let kids be kids for a while before they get to swimming in the toxic soup of what we do."

Viewers were confounded over the choice in location for Ingraham's show.

The jovial segment continued as the pair laughed about whether or not the "ladies first" protocol was sexist.

They cited an Eater article about a Chicago restaurant dispensing with the term "ladies and gentlemen" and that the establishment "no longer serves guests in order of gender performance."

Ingraham giggled and said whenever she goes out for dinner with her son, she teaches him how to be a "gentlemen" through action.

"He goes in and I let the door close and I wait outside."

People are hardly surprised about the exhibition of sarcasm in front of a memorial.

The cemetery honors American soldiers who died in Europe during World War II. It contains 9,388 burials over 172.5 acres located on the former site of the temporary battlefield cemetery of Saint Laurent.

Ingraham probably should have played out her banter elsewhere.

Gender roles have evolved over time, which includes the roles of spouses in a "traditional marriage."

While the concept of traditional marriage is actually quite modern and differed in cultures around the world, most people envision the homes of sitcoms like Father Knows Best and Leave It to Beaver from the 1950s and early 1960s when they think of a traditional marriage.

A tanning addict who admits to soaking up sun without using protection for decades talked to Press Association about how a pink pimple on the end of her nose turned out to be sunbathing-induced skin cancer.

Her nose had to be covered using a radical technique known as a reconstructive skin flap, involving three operations in May and June, after Laure Seguy was diagnosed with skin cancer. She blames her tanning addiction and has now drastically overhauled her relationship with the sun.
