Tomi Lahren Claims She Doesn't Know Why NFL Players Are Kneeling, And Twitter Dragged Her For It

"Why are you so bad at listening?"

Published October 18, 2017

Colin Kaepernick made it perfectly clear during his 2016 season-long kneeling during the national anthem that he was protesting against oppression, racism and the police brutality of unarmed Black men. Several NFL players followed suit, kneeling during the anthem as a silent protest to raise awareness to the same issues.

But after President Trump called protesting NFL players a "son of a b***h," Tomi Lahren has casually and all-too conveniently forgotten about why the league's players are protesting.

"I would like to ask these players: What exactly are you kneeling for?" the Fox News contributor said on the network this morning.

Whether Lahren sincerely doesn't know or is simply pretending to not know, Twitter is willingly dragging and educating her with these responses along the way.

  1. "So I would like to ask these players, what exactly are you kneeling for and why have you chosen the flag and the anthem to do it?" Lahren asked. "I bet if we asked 100 players we would get 100 different answers."

    Oh, you're gonna learn today!

  2. Upon hearing her, people immediately accused the fox news contributor of knowing the reason why players are kneeling, but attempting to make it about the military

    Well, Tomi ...

  3. Others let her know that Players have explained their reasons for kneeling many times, before wondering why Tomi is 'so bad at listening' and why she's still on TV at all


  4. this person had the time today to break it down and explain it thoroughly to tomi

    Journalist? Nah.

  5. Others didn't have the patience

    Not today.

  6. If tomi was really interested, she could have simply Googled it

    That last part.

  7. And as for her saying polled NFL players would give '100 different answers,' people responded with ...


  8. At the end of the day, keep pretending, Tomi, this Twitter user said

    "Tomi will keep pretending she has no idea what's going on..."

    Word. Say that again.
