Tomi Lahren is getting her due after tweeting her latest lie. The Fox News pundit appears to be even more anti-Islam than she is anti-LGBT, but fulfilled her true goal of following her leader, President Donald Trump, in his attacks on Democratic Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
As she tends to do, offering zero context or background, Lahren out of the blue falsely claimed that “the Left” is standing up for Rep. Omar by saying “we MUST be tolerant of Sharia Law” including “oppression/stoning of gays.”
To be clear, not a single word of what she says is true or accurate.
And she ties her lies into Democratic presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg‘s attacks on Vice President Mike Pence‘s long and ugly history of anti-gay beliefs, policies, and positions.
Explain your logic.

There is literally zero basis for this obvious lie.
No one on the Left is calling to support Sharia law, or calling to stone LGBTQ people.
Rep. Omar, on her campaign website, has an entire page devoted to the “Fight for LGBTQIA+ Rights.”
“The LGBTQIA+ community’s struggle did not end with the legalization of same sex marriage. People in the queer community are disproportionately affected by the same issues we all experience—lack of access to housing, education, and healthcare; violence; workplace discrimination; among many others. I will fight in Congress to uplift the voices of the LGBTQIA+ community, and especially when that intersects with other marginalized identities.,” she says.
There is no evidence Rep. Omar supports or is an adherent of Sharia law, and she has specifically said it is “laughable” to think it would come to America.
The fear of Muslims implementing Sharia in the US is laughable. We make up less than 1% of the US pop. & have only 2 members in congress. https://t.co/khaEaVDSr6

NCRM reached out to the Congresswoman’s office but did not receive a response by press time.
Here’s how some responded to Lahren’s lie:
Ignorant racists like you pushing this fantasy that Sharia law is coming to America is one of the reasons Ilhan and so many other Muslims get death threats. You should be ashamed of yourself. https://t.co/CNvGr74I2U

Now Tami, show where ‘the left’ says you must be tolerant of ‘Sharia Law.’
Go ahead Tami, we’ll wait.#MakingShitUpForRageClicks

This is a blatant lie. Show proof that this has ever been said by the left. Quit spreading fear, hate and lies! You should be ashamed of yourself. You cannot win an argument based on evidence and fact, so instead you spread malicious and dangerous lies! https://t.co/Wgixlih7YQ

“The Left stands up for @IlhanMN” True because she’s usually right. “and says we MUST be tolerant of Sharia Law!” WAAH!? Who said that? Ptomaine pushes the same mentality that caused the massacres at the Pittsburgh synagogue and the mosques in Christchurch & Quebec.

Imagine being so stupid that you can’t come up with substantive arguments against the left’s policy ideas, so you resort to smearing and straw manning others. Can’t relate.

Exactly what I often say. Pence’s “Christian Sharia” is no different. And zero Dems are tolerant of Shaira law. Or Pence’s Theocracy.

You just make shit up. Seriously, you’re shameless.
— bob clendenin (@bobclendenin) April 15, 2019
Umm…show us Tomi where Ilhan has ever supporterd Sharia Law. You’re also arguing that anyone can arbitrarily reference any part of Christianity and claim they support the state enforcing it…which guess what? The Quran & Bible are pretty similar.

Pls tell me when and who said we must be tolerant of Sharia Law? Pls tell me Tomi what is Sharia Law & if ALL Muslims abide by the exact same interpretation of it? I await your response.

We respect Congresswoman Omar’s freedom of religion. We do not respect VP Pence’s decision to be a hateful asshole. It’s pretty easy to understand unless, of course, you’re hateful too. https://t.co/MfHXR7V4aX

‘I Never Lied’: Kayleigh McEnany Says God Made Her Tell the Truth in the White House Despite Documented Lies
Kayleigh McEnany insisted on Sunday that she never lied as White House press secretary because she believes in God.
While speaking to Turning Point USA’s Young Women’s Leadership Summit, McEnany recalled that she had been asked if she would ever lie to the American people soon after taking the job as press secretary.
“And I said without hesitation, no,” she remarked. “And I never did. As a woman of faith, as a mother of baby Blake, as a person who meticulously prepared at some of the world’s hardest institutions, I never lied. I sourced my information.”
McEnany complained that the press has attacked her by calling her a “liar.”
“Our motto was this: offense only,” she told the crowd. “Because I knew what we were up against. Republicans always get the bad headlines, always get the false stories, always get the lies — if I can use that word — told by the press. There is one standard for Democrats and another for Republicans. And we must be on offense.”
McEnany went on to recount news reports that she claimed had been fabricated to damage former President Donald Trump.
She did not address the litany of lies that were reported by the news media during her tenure as White House press secretary.
In one article alone, Refinery29’s Natalie Gontcharova detailed nearly two dozen of McEnany’s falsehoods.

‘Excels at Ignoring Women’: Madison Cawthorn Slammed for False Claim He’s First Freshman to Have a Bill Passed
When North Carolina Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn first came to Capitol Hill in January he quickly sent out a message to the GOP caucus admitting he had no interest in legislation.
“I have built my staff around comms rather than legislation,” he wrote in a January 19 email to House Republicans.
Now he’s trying to turn that messaging into messaging about legislation that he’s passed. Except he hasn’t passed any legislation.
“I am proud to announce that my office is the FIRST Freshman office to have a bill pass the House!” he tweeted, falsely, Wednesday morning.
🇺🇸BREAKING: I am proud to announce that my office is the FIRST Freshman office to have a bill pass the House!
This bill will provide our veterans with much needed assistance as they reenter the workforce!
Never forget, America is the land of the free BECAUSE of the brave.🇺🇸
— Madison Cawthorn (@CawthornforNC) May 19, 2021
Social media users were quick to point out that not only is Cawthorn not the first, he hasn’t actually passed any bills he’s sponsored — meaning, he hasn’t passed any bills he or his staff have drafted. Any member of Congress can co-sponsor a bill, and he’s bragging about putting his name on a bill that passed.
As it turns out, the first freshman to have a bill passed is a Democrat, Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux of Georgia. Cawthorn voted for the bill that made her the first freshman to have a bill passed in this Congress, as Yahoo News reported.
Overall, Rep. Cawthorn has sponsored 10 bills or resolutions, and co-sponsored 110.
Of the 10, none have passed the House.
Cawthorn a few hours later amended his claim, but instead of graciously apologizing to the freshman Democrat who was the first to have a bill passed, Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux, he handed the honor to the first Republican:
Spoke too soon! Turns out @RepGarbarino holds the honor of first Republican Freshman! Massive shoutout to him and his team! Very proud to be among the first!
— Madison Cawthorn (@CawthornforNC) May 19, 2021
Cawthorn’s lie was quickly retweeted by Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier, who has nearly one million followers. The retweet is still up even though it’s false.
The response to Cawthorn’s latest stunt has not been kind, with some even exposing his poor attendance record.
The Bro Congressman excels at ignoring women.

‘Not Even Close to True’: CNN Blasts Just-Elected GOP Caucus Chair Elise Stefanik’s ‘Wildly Inaccurate’ First Speech
U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), a Trump acolyte, was just elected to replace booted House Republican Caucus Chair Liz Cheney. In her first speech minutes after securing her new leadership position Stefanik delivered a “wildly inaccurate” claim, CNN reported.
“We see the worst jobs report in over 20 years,” Stefanik said.
“I just want to note something also that was just wildly inaccurate,” CNN’s Poppy Harlow said on-air after the speech. Stefanik was “talking about the economy, blasting this economy, saying we just got ‘the worst jobs report in 20 years.’ That is not true, not even close to true, we’ll keep monitoring this we’ll be right back.”
One year ago America, under Stefanik’s top supporter, President Donald Trump, America did see “the worst jobs report in U.S. history.”
Listen to Stefanik’s speech:
“My focus is on unity—because that’s what the American people, and that’s what our voters, deserve,” Rep. Elise Stefanik says shortly after being elected House GOP conference chair, replacing Liz Cheney. https://t.co/1bGf8Z7eHJ pic.twitter.com/UOeKPmMiQ7
