As she closed her five-month old show Friday night Laura Ingraham announced she will be taking next week off. Ingraham has been plagued by at least 16 advertisers fleeing her program, some promising to never return after the Fox News host attacked Parkland student survivor David Hogg.

“I’ll be off for Easter break with my kids, but fear not – we’ve got a great lineup of guest hosts to fill in for me,” Ingraham told viewers.
Former Fox News president Joe Peyronnin says Ingraham’s apology – which she said she was offering because of “Holy Week” – was insufficient and the flood of advertisers leaving “could be fatal” to the future of her show.
David Hogg, who had responded to Ingraham’s attack by tweeting out a list of just 12 of her top advertisers on Wednesday, offered this tweet:
Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week. https://t.co/bjSLmj3gyH

Others on social media noted that at Fox News, vacations after advertiser boycotts are sometimes permanent:
In spirit of Holy Week, I hope Ingraham gets to enjoy a permanent vacation.

Everyone knows that in Fox News land ‘going on vacation’ means ‘you’re cancelled!’
In this holiest of weeks, sending Laura Ingraham thoughts and prayers.

Meanwhile, some rejoiced in the success of the Parkland students, and others sent Ingraham their “thoughts and prayers”:

Next week Laura Ingraham will be taking a 100% pre-planned vacation, unrelated to the onslaught of bad press she’s gotten, during which she will definitely NOT be mad

Thoughts and prayers to your career.

Laura Ingraham is going on vacation after her disgusting attack of David Hogg. Conservatives and Republicans take note. You keep viciously smearing the Parkland students, and you will keep taking L’s. These kids are tough. https://t.co/Rjp80A9Yua

Trump Serves Up Paranoid Election Conspiracy Rant for Thanksgiving: ‘Flick of a Switch Can Change Course of History’
President Donald Trump on Thanksgiving broke weeks of refusing to answer questions from reporters, and focusing his anger on Georgia called its Republican Secretary of State “an enemy of the people” while brewing up an insane new conspiracy theory.
After praising GOP Senators in two run-off elections fighting to keep their seats, Trump said he told Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, “you have a fraudulent system.”
“You have a system where the flick of a switch or the putting in of a new chip can change the course of history.”
He also falsely claimed voting rights advocate and former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams had illegally “harvested” 850,000 ballots. In reality, Abrams says 750,000 Georgia voters have requested absentee ballots.

USAID Acting Administrator the Latest Governmental Employee to Test Positive for COVID-19
Acting administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), John Barsa, has tested positive for coronavirus, Axios reported Wednesday.
Staffers told Axios that they barely wear masks in their office and that Barsa is the latest in a series of senior administration officials to contract the virus. H
“The acting Deputy Administrator has been isolating since he began exhibiting symptoms late Monday, Nov. 23, and will continue to until a retest is conclusive,” spokesperson Pooja Jhunjhunwala said in a statement.
Barsa was planning to travel to Honduras this weekend after the country was ravaged by recent hurricanes. Administration officials say they expect that trip won’t happen as he quarantines.
Adam Schiff: ‘A President Cannot Pardon Himself’ and the ‘Constitution is Not a Suicide Pact’
Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared on CNN Wednesday to discuss the pardon of Michael Flynn by President Donald J. Trump and the question arose regarding whether or not the president could, in fact, pardon himself.
“The Justice Department has taken the position that a president cannot pardon himself,” Schiff said. “It would ultimately be up to [the U.S. Supreme Court] to decide. The Constitution is not a suicide pact.”
Flynn was originally charged with admitting that he had misled investigators about details of his conversations with the Russian ambassador during Trump’s presidential transition.
Watch the video below.
