In today’s edition of white fragility bulls**t, our favorite (j/k) host (of uh, some Fox News thing) Tomi Lahren is aptly getting dragged all over social media.
You see, Lahren is one of the frontline fighters in the #WhiteLivesMatter offensive. In the past, the (why is she even famous?) commentator has dragged former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others for kneeling for the national anthem prior to NFL games. One of her, and others like her’s, biggest charges against the peaceful anthem protests is that it “disrespects the flag.”
In making that statement, logic would tell you, you know so you wouldn’t be labeled a hypocrite, to not even go near disrespecting the flag yourself right? Because at all times Lahren and faux conservative talking heads have maintained consistent views on patriotism and… just kidding. Of course not.
That’s why Tomi’s wit sprung into action for Halloween. On Instagram, she posted a picture of her costume, which was the American flag distorted in just about every way possible behind a MAGA, uh, bathing suit?
Anyway, social media was quick to point out that not only does the costume violate a bunch of official flag codes, the “disrespecting the flag” hypocrisy was so on the nose, they couldn’t stay in their seats.
“If you’re angry at the Texans for protesting the National Anthem, but not at Tomi Lahren for desecrating the Flag, then it’s not patriotism,” someone tweeted. “I guess disrespecting the American flag in this manner is okay. My god...just don't kneel during the anthem,” another tweeted.
See Tomi’s costume and the glorious criticism of it below.

So what Tomi Lahren is doing here is considered respectful of the flag, but daring to take a knee to protest racism is disrespectful. 😒 pic.twitter.com/ME94fRaWAR— Dr. Mansa Keita (@rasmansa) October 29, 2017
I don’t think anyone cares about a flag code. It’s just a super dorky costume that screams, “I’m desperate for attention- look at me!”— Karen McSweeney (@karenmc115) October 30, 2017
