WATCH: Did Laura Ingraham Make a Nazi Salute at the RNC?
Social media users criticized conservative political commentator Laura Ingraham for appearing to make a Nazi-salute at the Republican National Convention.
Ingraham concluded her Wednesday night speech, during which she praised Republican nominee Donald Trump, by waving to a cheering audience. In the beginning of the wave, her outstretched arm was reminiscent of the salute made by Nazis in Germany to signal obedience to Adolf Hitler.
On Twitter, users slammed Ingraham’s gesture.

But everyone didn’t agree.
I’ve taken many deserved shots at Laura Ingraham during this election cycle, but the “Nazi salute” pic ppl are chuckling about is just dumb.

In March, Abraham Foxman, the former head of the Anti-Defamation League, slammed Trump for asking attendees at a rally to raise their hands in a pledge of support, calling it “a fascist gesture.”
