Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on Tuesday pretended to abruptly end an interview after Fox News guest host Juliet Huddy used the slur “illegal aliens” to refer to undocumented immigrants.
Conservative websites like Breitbart.com and Glenn Beck’s The Blaze have recently expressed outrage that the UCLA Center for Labor Research and the National Labor College had established a National Dream University to allow so-called Dream Act students to take classes online.
“If you’re an illegal alien and you want to apply here, you pay $2,400 for 18 credits,” Huddy told Ingraham on Tuesday. “If you’re a legal person — a legal American student — 18 credits [cost] $6,600.”
“First of all, number one, I have to say, using the word ‘alien’ I find personally — I’m going to have to leave,” Ingraham replied as she pretended to take off her microphone and end the interview.
“No!” she laughed. “There’s now a penalty in place for actually playing by the rules. I mean, you can look at it that way, right? … So, that’s a perverted way of dealing with thing, in my mind.”
