Laura Ingraham’s Trump Prediction Sends Shudders Across Social Media

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham caused consternation on social media Thursday when she foresaw “The Age of Trump” if former President Donald Trump wins back the White House in November.

“If Trump wins, 150 years from now, this will be referred to as ‘The Age of Trump,’” predicted the prime-time personality, a staunch defender of the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.

If Trump “picks a strong VP, and we have every reason to believe he will, and if this new coalition becomes a governing coalition, well, it could be in power for fifty years,” Ingraham continued. “It could end up changing the world, and most importantly for us, our kids, our grandkids, saving America.”

Critics, though, shuddered at Ingraham’s commentary:
