Fox News’ Laura Ingraham again found herself doing damage control Monday night, after she posted a link from a controversial anti-immigration blog on Twitter.
Ingraham tweeted out a link earlier in the day to a VDARE article titled “Jeb Bush Denounces Americans Who Don’t Want To Be ‘Changed’ By Mass Immigration.” Shortly after, it was deleted, but not before the Contemptor’s Justin Baragona got ahold of it.
Ingraham then issued a mea culpa, saying she “mistakenly tweeted a link to a website that I in no way condone” while trying to highlight a National Review interview with Jeb Bush.
The SPLC lists VDARE as a white supremacist hate group. They take their name from Virginia Dare, the first English child born in the Americas. In 2016 two of their tweets were featured on the Jumbotron at the Republican National Convention.
Looks like she’s deleted the tweet. Here’s a screenshot pic.twitter.com/tPdQDAnVaA

A short while ago I mistakenly tweeted a link to a website that I in no way condone—only wished to highlight NRO podcast intvw w/ Jeb Bush on immigration. Tweet deleted. Thanks for the heads up!
