WEST PALM BEACH — Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham promoted her new book and her upcoming Fox News program when she appeared Monday at a Forum Club of the Palm Beaches lunch.

Ingraham argued that President Donald Trump is part of a “conservative populist movement” that includes conservative icon Ronald Reagan. She criticized the “lamestream media” and Hillary Clinton. No surprises there. But the conservative Ingraham also spoke approvingly of recent comments by former Democratic president Jimmy Carter.

An audience member asked Ingraham to name someone she disagrees with but respects.

“Don’t any of you gasp when I say this, but Rachel Maddow,” Ingraham said of the liberal MSNBC host.

“She puts on a nightly show that she writes, she believes it, she’s pushing for the agenda for America that she thinks is the right agenda. And she’s fighting every night,” said Ingraham. “I respect the fact that she’s out there fighting.”
