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.
