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.

‘Washington is no longer functional’: Brian Williams admits he’s sad to report that ‘our government is broken’
MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on Tuesday reported that America's federal government is broken.
"This was day 908 of the Trump Administration and while there is no joy in it, one way of summing up today is this: Our government’s broken, our politics are broken, Washington is no longer functional, and the cracks in our society are deepening," Williams reported.
"Much of this day was taken up by the discussion of racist statements by the president. Then tonight came the news that had so many people thinking back to when we were different, the death just tonight of retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens at the age of 99," he said.
Trump ignored being condemned by Congress and instead praised Republicans on Twitter for defending his racism
President Donald Trump celebrated on Tuesday night despite the House of Representatives having voted earlier in the day to condemn his racist statements.
By a final vote of 240 to 187, Congress voted for a resolution saying, "Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.”
The resolution said Congress “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.”
The tortured madness of Donald Trump: It’s clear the president is out of his mind
Where’s Shakespeare when we need him? Only the Bard of Avon could do literary justice to the tortured madness of Donald Trump, who fluctuates between petulant self-pity and weird self-praise.
His brags are especially weird because they usually involve achievements he hasn’t made. It’s as though his saying something makes it true — even though everyone except his most naive devotees can clearly see that he’s either hallucinating or lying. In June, for example, at a rally launching his reelection campaign, he retrumpeted an old campaign promise to “drain the swamp,” assuring the adoring crowd that “that’s exactly what we’re doing right now.”
