Conservative Tomi Lahren was flattened Friday night going up against Bill Maher’s panel of political experts.
Lahren claimed that it wouldn’t matter to her if Donald Trump was black, had three wives and grabbed women like Trump claimed he did. Michael Eric Dyson said that in the hypothetical scenario with “black Trump,” it wouldn’t matter because he would be in jail.
Maher read off a statistic that 32 percent of Americans think that discrimination against whites is as bad as discrimination against blacks. Lahren tried to pivot to talking about UC Berkeley’s protests but Maher asked her the question again. She confessed that she does think that it is as bad.
“Since I’m a conservative and not a Trump person, let me say this,” Wilson began. “That’s absurd. That’s f*cking crazy”
Lahren also defended Congress for rescinding President Barack Obama’s executive order making it illegal to dump pollutants in waterways because it means coal miners can have jobs again.
“Why do they have to cling to the worst jobs ever?” Maher asked her. Lahren said that it was all they know, but Maher asked why they couldn’t retrain coal miners and give them jobs that won’t kill them.
“He doesn’t know any coal miners!” former senate candidate Jason Kander cut in. “He knows CEOs of coal companies!”
She argued that Trump knows them because they voted for him en masse. But Kander said Trump doesn’t actually “know” them.
“There’s a kind of hazy nostalgia with Trump’s plan, ‘We’re going to have ironworks and shipyards and coal miners,'” Rick Wilson said. “These are things — we might as well get our buggy-whip industry back together again. It’s this retrospective, fake past that doesn’t exist anymore. And, God bless them, they work their asses off, and you know what, natural gas took their jobs, not Barack Obama.”
