Deplorable: Fox News host Tomi Lahren reports that watching migrant children being hit with tear gas was “the highlight” of her Thanksgiving weekend.
In a mean-spirited tweet Trump-loving white supremacist and Fox News host Tomi Lahren celebrated the tear gassing of migrant children over the holiday weekend.
Responding to a tweet from actor and activist Alyssa Milano pointing out that the Trump administration was using tear gas against women and children seeking asylum at the border, Lahren declared that seeing women and children being tear gassed was the highlight of her Thanksgiving weekend:
Bum-rushing the border is a CHOICE and has consequences. Watching the USA FINALLY defend our borders was the HIGHLIGHT of my Thanksgiving weekend. ������ https://t.co/jAkfcgzRuN

Newsweek gives context to Lahren’s deplorable tweet:
Lahren, a major proponent of Trump and his strict immigration policies, was praising the work of U.S. border agents on Sunday when they fired tear gas at migrants protesting at the border in Tijuana…
The gas reportedly affected some women and children and led to outrage over the Trump administration’s handling of the Central American migrants hoping to seek asylum in the U.S.
On Twitter, Lahren was “destroyed” for celebrating the tear gassing of migrant children. For example:
Imagine getting off on seeing children gassed https://t.co/DPQmN5EXlf

If watching desperate men, women and children choke and be temporarily blinded by tear gas was the highlight of your Thanksgiving, please make an appointment to see a counselor immediately. There are substantial underlying issues. https://t.co/3PClkXlehH— Mike Stuchbery�� (@MikeStuchbery_) November 26, 2018

Imagine a young American woman whose greatest joy of Thanksgiving was to see toddlers being gassed.

Lahren is not the only Fox News personality endorsing the abuse of migrant women and children seeking asylum. Earlier today Fox News commentator Ron Colburn asserted that tear gas was no big deal. Appearing on “Fox and Friends” Colburn explained that tear gas was “natural” and safe:
It’s natural. You could actually put it on your nachos and eat it. So it’s a good way of deterring people without long-term harm.
Bottom line: Shameless and sadistic white nationalist Tomi Lahren enjoyed watching migrant women and children suffer as they were being tear gassed at the border, calling it the “highlight” of her Thanksgiving weekend.
