LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Remember, last week as well, the press exploded with stories about that guy, Rob Porter, a name that most of you had not heard of before last week.

Well, he's a former staff secretary to President Trump, who is accused by two former wives and a recent girlfriend of abusive behavior.

His reportedly tumultuous relationships, to say the least, apparently didn't, however, affect his work, which by all accounts was top-notch. Even one of his ex-wives and said she didn't think he should be fired, despite what she claimed were his anger problems. And on Friday, the president refused to throw Porter to the wolves.


Well, that was heresy, because apparently the only acceptable response from the president would have been condemning Porter to a life of misery and inviting the wives to the White House for a #MeToo lunch.
