“Think about how miserable the White House press corps was let’s say around the end of 2019,”
Fox News Graphic Malfunctions While Listing Donald Trump’s Achievements
Fox News suffered a technical malfunction during Monday’s The Ingraham Angle show while attempting to list former President Donald Trump’s achievements.
The graphic only listed two things (tougher trade policies and no wars) before empty spaces began appearing where Trump’s accomplishments were meant to be.
Clips of the incident have begun circulating on social media and one tweet has been viewed over 65,000 times.
In the clipped segment, Ingraham insisted that the media was angry at Trump despite America allegedly being in a good place.
“Think about how miserable the White House press corps was let’s say around the end of 2019,” she said during the segment.
“That was when we had energy independence, that is when we had low inflation.
“We had rising wages even for blue-collar workers, we also had record-low unemployment. We had good trade deals and we had no new wars.
“It didn’t matter that investor and consumer confidence was at an all-time high and that optimism was robust all the way around. In fact, that annoyed our media so much.”
Ingraham also reflected on the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, arguing that Vladimir Putin did not attack Ukraine while Trump was President due to the perceived strength of the United States.
During Russian President Vladimir Putin’s speech announcing the invasion of Ukraine, he said that his “special military operation” was an act of defense against NATO expansion.

Ingraham also said Biden had allowed Ukraine to get too close to NATO and had been over-reliant on Russian oil.
“Biden should have insisted on a realistic assessment of the situation in Ukraine but instead, his team kept open the prospect of NATO membership for Ukraine which Putin said he was never going to accept,” Ingraham said.
“In retrospect, that was likely a huge mistake. Of course, Putin did not attack Ukraine under Trump because he knew America was stronger and more practical under his leadership.
“Trump was a pro-energy nationalist who wasn’t about to get rolled into supporting Russia’s national gas pipeline into Europe,” she added.
The Fox News host then went on to criticize Biden’s administration and accused them of attempting to undo Trump’s work.
“From day one, the White House, [Nancy] Pelosi and [Chuck] Schumer have worked overtime to turn back every policy of Biden’s predecessor that worked to make America stronger and more powerful here and in Europe,” Ingraham continued.
“Now Americans are made to pay a price for Biden’s madness.”
Former Attorney General, Bill Bar has echoed similar sentiments as Ingraham’s show, according to a Mail Online report.
While speaking with Fox News, he claimed Putin could use Biden’s “weakness” to his advantage. “Given Biden’s manifest weakness, Putin is likely to feel he’s better off making no concessions at all.”
A passage from Barr’s new book, One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General, read: “I am afraid that, with a wavering, intermittently alert Joe Biden in the Oval Office, Vladimir Putin will pursue Russian strategic goals more assertively and feel little need to find agreed-upon frameworks with the U.S.”
