Partisan Hack Tomi Lahren Blames Liberals For The Tide Pod Challenge
In one of her recent Final Thoughts segments, conservative commentator Tomi Lahren thought she would sound smart by going on a partisan rant where she attempts to blame liberals for the Tide Pod Challenge.
She was very wrong.
In the hacky word salad of a video, Lahren tried to bash the left and its alleged lack of “family values” for the recent trend of teens eating laundry detergent for 15 minutes of social media fame.
“This isn’t a social media problem, a tide problem, or even a medical problem," Lahren said. "It’s a parenting problem, like many things wrong with modern society.”
With absolutely zero evidence to back up her talking point, Lahren doubled down by claiming the left is responsible for brainwashing young people via pop culture.
“It’s just the latest symptom of a larger problem: the breakdown of the American family,” Lahren said. "The left, which dictates popular culture, brainwashes young people into believing they live in a world where 64 gender options are up for selection, everything is free, Beyoncé is a god-queen, and eating detergent is funny.”
All Lahren’s rant accomplished was making her sound like a curmudgeonly old man trapped in a young woman’s body.
Pandering to her 80-year-old Republican fan base, Lahren states these unfounded and irrelevant opinions as if they are fact, and her viewers eat it up.
You know you’re grasping at straws when you attempt to draw a connection between millennials’ support for non-binary gender identities, free college, and universal health care with a handful of stupid people eating laundry detergent.
(Can you say non sequitur five times fast?)
Only someone as unoriginal as Lahren could take something that has nothing to do with politics and make it as political possible by sprinkling her rant with fake outrage..
Then again, all Lahren cares about is racking up video views like a teen with a tide pod.
