Tomi Lahren joined Tucker Carlson on Friday to lament “Campus Craziness” taking place at colleges like Evergreen State, where the Fox host insisted students are “melting down, and that’s not an overstatement.”
Lahren, who took a job as a spokesperson for the pro-Donald Trump advocacy group Great American Alliance after she was booted from her gig at Glenn Beck’s “The Blaze,” called the recent protests at Evergreen “disturbing.”
“The fact that this is happening the United States of America, first of all is disturbing,” Lahren told Carlson. “Isn’t it odd, Tucker, that it used to be generations of Americans that fought against segregation and now it seems the new generation is fighting for segregation. It’s lunacy.”
Carlson went on to argue liberals used to be “against segregation” but have since reversed that position.
“I can’t believe it, and to throw out this word like, ‘racist’ … it just shows how ridiculous these labels are and how damaging they can be,” Lahren said. She added it’s “disgusting” that “there are other professors that are stick up for the mob-like protestors.”
“Now that’s what’s got me,” Lahren said.
She later argued the “alt-left is well-organized and they’re well-funded,: particularly on college campuses, insisting her group Great American Alliance plans to counter that message “professionally and with class”
“if you had any other college where a mob of students were threatening violence against someone because of his skin color … shouldn’t there be a civil rights investigation?” Carlson asked.
Lahren argued people are “so afraid” of the “alt-left” before insisting the mainstream media is really who to blame.

White House personnel chief delivers a new blow to Trump: Top DHS candidates are not legally qualified
President Donald Trump's quest to find an acting replacement for departed Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen was dealt a significant blow on Monday.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the White House personnel office chief Sean Doocey has informed the president that he doesn't believe either of his top two picks are legally qualified to hold the position.
As the Journal notes, "federal statute that governs vacancies states that acting officials in cabinet-level positions must either be next in line for a position or hold a Senate-confirmed position." Neither Ken Cuccinelli, who heads the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, nor Mark Morgan, who leads Customs and Border Protection, meet those standards, Doocey determined.
Maryland man paralyzed from the waist down after traffic stop ends with him being slammed to the ground
A Prince George's County man is now paralyzed from the waist down after an altercation with police, Fox5DC reported this weekend.
According to the police, when they pulled over 24-year-old Demonte Ward-Blake for an "expired tag" Ward-Blake was argumentative and police said they smelled marijuana in the car. Medical marijuana is legal in Maryland and possession of 10 grams or less of marijuana was decriminalized in Maryland in 2014. Ward-Blake was found to have 3 grams of pot on him. Police still use the "smell of marijuana" as a justification for an illegal search, despite 33 states legalizing pot in some way in the U.S., and it's become known as "sniff and search."
Ex-GOP rep. says Republican buddies will flip on Trump: ‘They do believe he’s a moron’
Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh predicted this week that lawmakers from his own party will eventually support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
"I think he knows it’s coming," Walsh told CNN's Brianna Keilar following the president's remarks to reporters. "He sounded like a frightened baby right there."
According to Walsh, "even Republicans" are embarrassed by Trump's failed effort to hold the G7 summit at his Miami Doral resort.
"It’s really important to note, I need to say this, Republicans don’t like him," Walsh explained. "Republicans in Congress. They don’t like him, they don’t fear him, they don’t respect him. They do believe he’s incompetent, they do believe he’s a moron."
