Via Rolling Stone, Fox TV fluffer and Trump's Lady of the Chamber Pot Laura Ingraham believes voters might feel it’s time to “turn the page” on the former president:

In a Monday appearance on the Truth with Lisa Boothe podcast, Ingraham discussed the potential response to a third presidential bid by Trump, and warned that the country was “exhausted” by the “constant battle” Trump represents.

For Trump, the loyalty of Fox hosts is a bellwether of his perception amongst Americans generally. Rolling Stone reported last month that the former president has obsessed over his performance in the “Fox News primary,” going so far as to keep lists of which on air personalities are “for” or “against” him. Sources indicated that Trump felt Ingraham might not support him in 2024, while Sean Hannity’s loyalty was secure. Hannity on Monday claimed Trump could still run for president even with a felony conviction.

Ingraham casting doubt on Trump’s 2024 prospects comes a week after the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and seized dozens of boxes of evidence in relation to an investigation into potential violations of the Espionage Act. In a reaction to the raid, Ingraham expressed skepticism about what Trump could actually do to curb the effects of the investigation.

Look, this has a lot more to do with Rupert Murdoch than Ingraham. Clearly, Rupert thinks it's time to cut his losses and seems read to replace Trump with Ron "Death" DeSantis. But there will always be that hard core group that hisses, "Musn't touch the Precious!"
