TheBlaze’s talking head Tomi Lahren paid a visit to Real Time with Bill Maher, Friday night and did not do well against a much more intelligent and experienced panel than her.
Host Bill Maher didn’t waste any time laying in Lahren who is well known for her rants into the camera about Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance weaponizing attacks against white America or worse when she spouts racist gems such as, “The term unarmed black man may be literally accurate, but it doesn’t tell the whole story in most cases. In a number of cases, if the victim ended up being unarmed, it was certainly not for a lack of trying.”
Maher focused on many of the Executive Orders signed by Trump in his first two weeks as president such as selling guns to the mentally ill and allowing mining companies to dump toxic waste into rivers.
“I guess my question is, [Trump] was all about helping the little guy,” Maher said. “This looks like special interest stuff. How does letting a coal company dump the sludge in the river help the little guy?”
“The forgotten American,” said Lahren. “The coal industry has been attacked. Obama went to war against the coal industry and they saw massive declines, and they were on their way out the door. Look at the American worker. We need to take a minute, take a step back and realize…”
“Even if we allowed coal,” Maher interrupted, “why allow the company to dump the sludge in the river?”
“It’s a more complex issue than that though, and some of this regulation was doubled-up upon as well,” Lahren said trying to save the dumpster fire that was her answer.
She really unraveled later in the program when she tried to claim that discrimination against whites is as big of a problem as discrimination against people of color.
“Two-thirds of Republicans agree that discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against minorities. Do you agree with that?” Maher asked.
“I think that there’s certainly an element of division that needs to be addressed, yeah, as evidenced by UC Berkeley the other night. I do think that there’s… there’s certain issues in society where we’re becoming more divided, and it’s not just blacks against whites or whites against blacks, it’s all of us against each other. And it’s toxic,” she replied.
“But that’s not what I asked,” said Maher. “This says two-thirds of Republicans said that discrimination against whites is as big a problem as whites against blacks. Are you part of that two-thirds?”
“As we sit here today, I do think that there is an element of racism against white individuals. I do see it,” said Lahren. The audience could be heard laughing at her idiocy.
“That is fucking crazy,” fellow panelist Rick Wilson, a conservative columnist for The Daily Beast, shot back.
Wilson got into a few times with Lahren throughout the discussion. Lahren accused him of being a self-righteous conservative because he spoke out against Donald Trump.
One thing was for certain, Lahren was out of her league against this panel and proved to viewers she was nothing but a face for TheBlaze and without a scripted teleprompter was unable to offer any intelligible response to Maher’s questioning.
