Fox News host Laura Ingraham addressed slavery reparations on her podcast Thursday, arguing that the entire world had been remade by “conquest” and that there are “no do-overs” despite liberals’ desire to live in a “fake world.”

“People would argue that the whole world, and I would, the whole world has been reshaped by people taking other people’s land,” Ingraham said. “It’s called conquest.”

“As Trump always says, ‘You don’t get do-overs. No do-overs, that’s it,'” she continued. “There was an argument, sometime, I think it was the 1980s. There was a quote, ‘you won, we lost, that’s that.’ Describing world politics, ‘we won, you lost, that’s that.’ That’s just the way it is.”

She later claimed that her words were being taken out of context.

She was citing a quote referring to a world reshaped by conquest, but was using the argument to bolster her position that reparations are “preposterous.”
