Pompeo is done being polite

Ellen Pompeo is threatening on Twitter to beat down a Fox News host, and honestly, we don't really blame her.

It all started when NBA players LeBron James and Kevin Durant released a video criticizing President Donald Trump's remarks on Tuesday's Florida school shooting, which killed 17 people, mostly teenage students. On Thursday, Fox News host Laura Ingraham took the players to task.

"Unfortunately, a lot of kids — and adults — take these sort of ignorant comments seriously," Ingraham said. "Look: There might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids. This is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA."

Yikes. Not only is that rude, it's inaccurate. James didn't leave high school a year early, he graduated a year early. There's a pretty big difference there.

Ingraham continued, "It’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball. Oh, and LeBron and Kevin, you’re great players, but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach, so keep the political commentary to yourself, or, as someone once said, shut up and dribble."

To be fair, those comments probably left a lot of people wanting to take a swing at Ingraham. But Pompeo in particular did not hold back.
