Tomi Lahren is aligning herself very closely with the NRA in the wake of two mass shootings that stole the lives of 31 people in El Paso and Dayton over the weekend. The anti-LGBT hyper-partisan Fox Nation host who has been called “white power Barbie” told “Fox and Friends” viewers Wednesday morning that gun rights are gay rights, after airing a clip from her interview with the NRA’s social media manager.
“You know, when I interviewed Billy McLaughlin it was actually during Pride month. He wrote an excellent article in The Washington Post talking about how gun rights are also LGBT rights and he also happens to be gay and the social media director of the NRA in his 20’s, so the NRA really does represent everybody,” Lahren claimed, falsely, while also plugging her Fox Nation show.
“Gun rights really are human rights and he attests that perfectly,” she concluded. Her remarks were toward the end of her segment in this Fox News video:
Earlier in the segment Lahren attacked liberals for what she called “liberal privilege,” which she literally defined as liberals having the belief they can criticize anyone they want, then pivoting to the false claim that “gun rights are human rights.”
Lahren is no friend to the LGBTQ community.
Also during Pride month Lahren proudly endorsed the upcoming straight pride parade, telling viewers, “I’m not afraid to say it. I’m straight and proud. There, deal with it!”
She lamented, “Sadly, at least in Boston, straight people aren’t allowed to parade their heterosexuality for all to see,” while claiming it is “open-season on straight white men in this country.”
The LGBT community is not the only minority Lahren has attacked. She has compared Black Lives Matter to the KKK.

Trump Tweets Comments From ‘Fox & Friends’ Contributor Who Right Now Is Getting Mocked for His ‘Stupid’ Remarks
As he does nearly every day, President Donald Trump spent his “executive time” on Wednesday watching his favorite TV show, “Fox & Friends.” And as he does many mornings he tweeted out “quotes” (far from exact) from “Fox & Friends” that he likes.
Wednesday morning, less than two hours before the open impeachment hearings will begin, also on television, the president tweeted out comments from a Fox News contributor who right now is being mocked on social media for those comments, which what some say are “stupid” remarks.
Charles Hurt bragged on “Fox & Friends” that he doesn’t know what language “quid pro quo” is. He called the Latin term, and the word “bribery,” “squirrelly words.” He also wrongly suggested that attempted crimes are not crimes (they are) and that Democrats are unable to prove Trump “did anything particularly wrong,” which is also false.
As NCRM reported, many on social media mocked or derided Hurt, who is also an opinion editor for the right wing Washington Times, and a contributor to the far right wing website Breitbart.
Here’s Trump quoting Hurt:
“Nancy Pelosi cares more about power than she does about principle. She did not want to go down this road. She realizes this is a huge loser for Democrats. The Founders envisioned the worst people being in politics, yet they couldn’t envision this. You have these people taking…

….any laws or did anything wrong, and they have to move away from quid pro quo because there was no quid, and there was no quo. Ukraine got it’s money (3 weeks early), and there was no investigation.” @CharlesHurt @foxandfriends

Hurt’s defense of Trump doesn’t hold water, but Trump apparently felt it does.
They are both wrong.
Open witness testimony in the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump starts in less than one hour.
Trump Using Murder of 9 Americans to Try to Send US Armed Forces Into Mexico ‘to Wage War on the Drug Cartels’
Trump did not offer to help wounded victims who need to be airlifted to US medical facilities.
President Donald Trump wasted little time in using the slaughter of nine Americans in Mexico to try to send U.S. Armed forces into the sovereign nation. Three women and six children, including one as young as 3-years old, were killed in what some reports describe as a shootout between rival gangs where they were mistaken as members or in the middle of the attack.
“The families are from La Mora, about 70 miles south of Douglas, Ariz.,” The Salt Lake Tribune reports. “They are a mix of people who worship with the mainstream Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and polygamous offshoots. Lafe Langford Jr. said the killings happened near the town of Bavispe in the state of Sonora. The gunmen, [a relative of the victims] said, are believed to be members of a cartel from Chihuahua who encroached on another cartel’s territory.”
Trump took to Twitter to express his outrage at the drug cartels, one of his common targets he points to when insisting America needs to build his wall on the southern border.
“A wonderful family and friends from Utah got caught between two vicious drug cartels, who were shooting at each other, with the result being many great American people killed, including young children, and some missing,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.
“If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively.,” he continued. “The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!”
This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth. We merely await a call from your great new president!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2019
There are several wounded family members in desperate need of medical assistance, hopefully in the U.S., and Mexican authorities say they cannot reach them. Trump did not offer to assist those victims.
Trump’s “offer” to effectively invade a foreign nation comes just weeks after he defended his pullout of U.S. Forces in Syria by saying Americans should not be paying for wars in foreign countries.
READ: White House Responds to Today’s Impeachment Vote – ‘Unfair, Unconstitutional’ and ‘Un-American’ (It’s Not)
The White House has just published an official, albeit unsigned, statement responding to Thursday morning’s House successful vote authorizing the rules of the impeachment inquiry – effectively setting the stage for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
As expected, it’s filled with falsehoods.
“The Democrats want to render a verdict without giving the Administration a chance to mount a defense,” the White House claims, disregarding the fact that Trump will get tremendous opportunity at trial – in the Senate – to kount any defense he wants, as the Constitution provides.
“That is unfair, unconstitutional, and fundamentally un-American,” the White House claims, falsely.
The White House also repeatedly cries Trump is being robbed of his “due process” rights, which again is false.
“Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing more than enshrine unacceptable violations of due process into House rules.”
Trump will be granted due process when the Senate trial begins – after the House votes whether or not to impeach.
The White House also claims, falsely, that President Trump “has done nothing wrong, and the Democrats know it. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ unhinged obsession with this illegitimate impeachment proceeding does not hurt President Trump; it hurts the American people.”
