Laura Ingraham attacks Aretha Franklin's “gratuitous” and “political” funeral

From the August 31 edition of Fox News' The Ingraham Angle:

LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): We had kind of dueling funerals today. It was something on television today. You had the John McCain funeral and then you had the -- or memorial service, lying in state at the Capitol. Then you had the Aretha Franklin funeral in Detroit.

RAYMOND ARROYO: Two great Americans, a musical legend, a statesman, both being honored but both these events in some ways, particular Aretha Franklin's funeral turned very political.

[...]

INGRAHAM: This was so gratuitous. Aretha Franklin, one of the great American voices of all time, didn't she get an award from George W. Bush? I guess she was a Democrat. She didn't seem like an overtly political person, maybe I'm missing that.

[...]

Some mean person on Facebook, someone sent me this, said something like, “Aretha Franklin's funeral, memorial service was so great that it's been picked up for ten episodes on Netflix.”  I almost fell over. But, okay, I guess it went on, it was on for four or five hours. But, my goodness, it was star-studded and it did get political.
