Keith Olbermann recalled how he once dated Laura Ingraham, as he criticized a viral video of the Fox News host’s purported confusion over hit show You.

During Monday’s installment of The Ingraham Angle, the titular host spoke with author Raymond Arroyo, who compared popular Netflix series You to the Paramount Network’s Yellowstone as they discussed their desire for “woke-free TV.”

“There is a reason people are in love with Yellowstone, Laura,” Arroyo said. “It is an antidote to the politics and all those woke storylines in so many shows today. I was watching an episode of You, where measles came up…”

Interrupting Arroyo’s train of thought, Ingraham enquired when she had ever mentioned the measles, indicating that she thought he was referring to her show.

As the two went back and forth, with Arroyo repeatedly yelling “You” and Ingraham taking it as reference to her show and her person, the host said: “We have never done a measles and vaccine episode. Is this a joke?

“I don’t know what you are talking about. Raymond, I have never had measles, what are you talking about? This is stupid.”

Despite Arroyo eventually clarifying that he was talking about the Netflix show You, the clip, which has been viewed on TikTok more than 15 million times, ended with Ingraham apparently remaining confused. The video can be viewed here.

As the video clip spread across Twitter on Tuesday, sports and political commentator Olbermann, 62, insisted that the moment was staged as he also shared his recollection of his brief history with Ingraham, 58.

Responding to journalist Aaron Rupar’s tweeting of the clip, Olbermann wrote: “JFC. It’s a BIT. I didn’t suffer through three dates worth of her “sense of humor” in 1998 for you to not recognize these are the same acting skills @IngrahamAngle turns to, whenever she tries to pass for human.”

He also responded in similar fashion when Rachel Vindman, wife of retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a witness in President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry, directed her Twitter followers’ attention to the clip.

“JESUS. IT’S A BIT. For God’s sake, trust me on this,” Olbermann tweeted. “I dated her. I went through three evenings of this kind of humor, some of it far more agonizingly long than this. She thinks she’s funny, and funny in this way.”
