Karma, as the old saying goes, can be a real son of a gun. And as a guest appearing on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show learned Friday evening, it can also be incredibly painful.
Raymond Arroyo decided it would be a good idea to celebrate Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s securing enough votes to be the next associate justice of the Supreme Court, and Arroyo told Ingraham it was time to drink a beer and take a selfie to commemorate the victory:
“OK, before I go. I thought just to bring it all together, Laura.”
In response, Ingraham used a line Kavanaugh had used during his confirmation hearings:
“I like beer.”
But when Arroyo took out his cell phone and began trying to get the best angle for the photo, the Fox host urged him:
“Go the edge.”
Arroyo did as instructed, falling out of his chair and onto the floor.
After the show, Ingraham went on Twitter to say that the whole thing had been a joke:

But not everyone was buying Ingraham’s explanation:
No it wasn’t. You weren’t laughing and you acted shocked before the camera quickly panned to you and you quickly started talking over the incident.

Lying just like Kavanaugh which probably means it fully fills the bill.

You’re pathetic. Is there nothing you won’t lie about?

Sure, just like Fatso’s UN flop was meant to be a joke. You MAGAgots have no humor. You are just plain assholes.

If it was a joke you wouldn’t have to say it’s a joke.
