Fox News host Laura Ingraham was impressed by former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams’s response to President Trump’s State of the Union address, saying she had “presence tonight.”

“I got to say, Stacey Abrams, I think she did have presence tonight. I think she (did) much better than some of the people in the last few years. … last year with the sweating face, that was a tough deal. It’s never easy to do these speeches, but, look, I think she is presenting an alternative universe to what is really going on.”
