(L to R) Laura Ingraham, Monique Pressley, Candace Owens (Getty Images) This week Democratic strategist Monique Pressley got caught in the crosshairs during a heated exchange with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham and conservative critic Candace Owens about Donald Trump.

Ingraham seemingly dismissed the example and quipped, “No one can follow Central Park Five.”
