OK, Laura Ingraham awkwardly gave a Nazi salute
Conservative radio talk show host, Laura Ingraham, threw shade at Cruz and dealt out a big helping of shame to the anti-Trump camp.
She called the media out on not supporting Trump and then did THIS:
Just freeze that first frame and take a closer look, it does look like a Nazi salute that awkwardly transitioned into a bent-arm wave.

Twitter freaked out about the symbology, while some found it hilarious.
I like how she tried to turn the nazi salute into a wave, like when you trip on the sidewalk and start running. pic.twitter.com/OFtM4UCFLk

I'm taking a night off from the RNC, but did Laura Ingraham give a Nazi salute with the WRONG hand? Very embarrassing if true.

Last night Ben Carson's Lucifer, tonight Laura Ingraham's Nazi salute- what will Ivanka do tomorrow?

Like I'm 90% sure Laura Ingram wasn't really doing a white power salute. But only 90. Maybe even 85.

With Trump, Laura Ingram, Ben Carson, RNC now stands for Racist Nazi Crazies.

Some pointed out Hilary Clinton doing similar gestures.
So liberals are complaining that Laura Ingraham saluted like this? pic.twitter.com/ahEmaRxJhd

And then Ingraham also ripped into Clinton:
It's Hillary...hands down! pic.twitter.com/rXrd3J0chF

Incidentally, this isn't the first time Trump supporters have given the Nazi salute.
