Fox News host Laura Ingraham's confusion over 'You' interview is unintentional comedy gold

Laura Ingraham, Fox News, funny

Laura Ingraham and Raymond Arroyo did a real-life "Who's on first?" bit.

Laura Ingraham isn't generally known for her comedy, but a viral clip from the November 15 episode of "The Ingraham Angle" has people rolling.

Ingraham was chatting with author Raymond Arroyo, a regular guest on her show, about the supposed popularity of "un-woke" television programming. Arroyo asserted, "There is a reason people are in love with 'Yellowstone,' Laura. It is an antidote to the politics and all those woke storylines in so many shows today."

Then he added, "I was watching an episode of 'You,' where measles came up…"

Ingraham interrupted him: "When did I mention measles?"

Arroyo was referring to the Netflix show 'You,' and he kept repeating the name of the show to clear up the confusion. But Ingraham kept thinking he was talking about her show.

"We have never done a measles and vaccine episode," she said. "Is this a joke? I don't know what you are talking about."

"It was on You," Arroyo repeated. "It was on You."

"Raymond, I have never had measles, what are you talking about?" she said. "This is stupid."


And it just kept going:

"It was an episode of a show, Laura."

"What's it called?"

"You! You! It's called You."

"I've never done a show on measles!"

"It is a show called 'You' on Netflix."

"There's a show called Laura Ingraham on Netflix … what are you talking about?"

Just watch:

Seriously, it's an SNL sketch.

Some people thought for sure that the whole thing was scripted, which is entirely possible.

The funniest thing about it, though, is that it's fairly emblematic of how conversations go on "The Ingraham Angle." A guest says something, Ingraham reacts, vapid debate ensues and Ingraham repeatedly doubles down on whatever she's wrong about. That part is hilarious.

Now people are torn between thinking it's real and thinking it's scripted and both options seem to make sense. If you weren't familiar with the show "You," you could easily believe that Ingraham was legitimately confused. Then again, the likelihood that someone in media would be unfamiliar with one of Netflix's top five shows seems low, but you never know.

Penn Badgley, the star of "You," even weighed in on the debate on Twitter, writing, "Definitely a bit. His delivery is great tho."

Either way, the clip was entertaining. If nothing else, it was a successful publicity stunt, as it got people of all stripes talking.

(However, if we're going to talk about Laura Ingraham's show and the Fox News Channel in general, let's remember to mention their significant contributions to the dismantling of America and destruction of civil society. No amount of comedy should distract us from that reality.)

Thanks for the laugh, though.


We all know that Americans pay more for healthcare than every other country in the world. But how much more?

According an American expatriate who shared the story of his ER visit in a Taiwanese hospital, Americans are being taken to the cleaners when we go to the doctor. We live in a country that claims to be the greatest in the world, but where an emergency trip to the hospital can easily bankrupt someone.

Kevin Bozeat had that fact in mind when he fell ill while living in Taiwan and needed to go to the hospital. He didn't have insurance and he had no idea how much it was going to cost him. He shared the experience in a now-viral Facebook post he called "The Horrors of Socialized Medicine: A first hand experience."

Men and the feels.

In this fast-paced business world, female leaders need to make sure they're not perceived as pushy, aggressive, or competent.

One way to do that is to alter your leadership style to account for the fragile male ego.

Man lists 8 not fun, but very important things you need to start doing as an adult.

"Welcome to being an adult. Maybe you weren't told this by your parents, but this is through my trial and error."

@johnfluenzer/TikTok

8 things you should be doing as an adult. Spoiler alert—none of them are fun.

Who among us hasn’t come into full adulthood wishing they had known certain things that could have made life so so so much easier in the long run? Choices that, if made, ultimately would have been much better for our well-being…not to mention our wallets.

But then again that is all part of growing older and (hopefully) wiser. However there is something to be said about getting advice from those who’ve been there, rather than learning the hard way every single time.

Thankfully, a man who goes by @johnfluenzer on TikTok has a great list of things young people should start doing once they become adults. Are any of his suggestions fun, cool or trendy? Not at all. But they are most definitely accurate. Just ask any 30+-year-olds who wished they had done at least four of these things.

"It was all his idea."

An offhand suggestion from her boyfriend of two years coupled with her own lifelong love of comic strips like "Calvin and Hobbes" and "Get Fuzzy" gave 22-year-old Catana Chetwynd the push she needed to start drawing an illustrated series about long-term relationships.

Specifically, her own relationship.

Society, pay attention. This is important.

My wife, Zoe, is transgender. She came out to us — the kids and me — last summer and then slowly spread her beautiful feminine wings with extended family, friends, and neighbors.

A little coming out here, a little coming out there — you know how it is.

It started with a simple, sincere question from a mother of an 11-year-old boy.

An anonymous mother posted a question to Quora, a website where people can ask questions and other people can answer them. This mother wrote:

How do I tell my wonderful 11 year old son, (in a way that won't tear him down), that the way he has started talking to me (disrespectfully) makes me not want to be around him (I've already told him the bad attitude is unacceptable)?

It's a familiar scenario for those of us who have raised kids into the teen years. Our sweet, snuggly little kids turn into moody middle schoolers seemingly overnight, and sometimes we're left reeling trying to figure out how to handle their sensitive-yet-insensitive selves.
