Ever heard of Laura Ingraham? Me neither. So in an apparent attempt to garner some attention, the conservative radio host decided to go after Brett Favre by calling the recently retired QB a “woman.”
WTMJ in Milwaukee reports that Ingraham started off her show on Friday by berating Brett for bawling at his retirement press conference.
After playing a clip from the conference, Ingraham responded:
All these years, and I didn’t know there was a woman quarterback in the NFL.
Brett Favre .. .we’re watching this in the studio, obviously retiring from the NFL, great quarterback, handsome 38-year-old man, he gets up there and he does this press conference that was frankly one of the most embarrassing things I have ever seen.
That’s a great message for young boys. Get up there and act like a a girl and start blubbering like a baby.
Looks like someone’s about to lose all their Wisconsin affiliates. But maybe she has a point. As Jay Sorgi of WTMJ points out, Favre has teared up in public before.
Like after a Monday Night game in 2003, where he threw for 399 yards & four touchdowns - a day after his father died of a heart attack. And just this past December, when he received a Make-A-Wish national award, Favre choked up while talking about Anna Walentowski, a 9-year-old girl with a degenerative brain disorder. Luckily, Anna was there at the podium to give Brett a hug.
Crying after your dad dies? Crying while discussing a little girl with an incurable brain disease? Yeah, this guy must be a wuss.
Good thing Laura’s here to tell it like it is, such as blaming the troops for problems in Iraq.
