Laura Ingraham, a famous comedy expert, does not approve of Sarah Silverman's latest short in support of women's reproductive rights. In the clip, Silverman chats amicably with Jesus about safe abortion care and the charms of watching "NCSI."

All of which made Ingraham feel pretty mad. During a Thursday segment of her radio comedy show, Ingraham slammed "Sarah 'Unfunny' Silverman" as an out-of-touch celebrity who sits comfortably in her house in Santa Monica ("or wherever she lives") while Comedy Expert Ingraham's personal friends in Washington, D.C., experience minor cold weather-related discomfort while demonstrating en masse to deny women basic healthcare.

Comedy Expert Ingraham also called Silverman "a Nobel Prize winner" (sarcastically, of course) and a "degenerate, foul-mouthed, slob of  a person."

Take that, Sarah "Unfunny" Silverman. Case closed on your un-funniness.
