Fox News personality Tomi Lahren this week went off on another tirade against NFL players who kneel during the national anthem as a protest against police brutality in the United States — despite admitting that she didn’t understand why they were protesting in the first place.
While appearing on Fox Tuesday evening, Lahren demanded that NFL players tell her the exact reason they are taking a knee during the national anthem before the start of football games.
“This is a serious question I have for these players that are, in fact, kneeling, because there are so many at this point,” she began. “What exactly are you kneeling for, and why, exactly, have you chosen the flag and the anthem to do it?”
Instead of inviting a kneeling NFL player onto the show to respond to Lahren’s question, Lahren simply answered the question herself.
“I bet if we asked 100 players, we’d get 100 different answers,” she explained. “And I would like to ask those same players, ‘What would it take for you to then stand and respect the flag and the anthem,’ and again, you’d probably get 100 different answers.”

In the wake of Trump failing to persuade voters on Louisiana to oust Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards and replace him with multimillionaire businessman Eddie Rispone, the Politico correspondent said Trump's attempt to demonstrate his pull with voters "backfired in dramatic fashion."

How Democratic women drove the 2018 blue wave
After Hillary Clinton lost to a talking yam with criminal tendencies in 2016, a number of people got antsy about the idea that the country was really ready yet to embrace women in politics. But a huge number of Democratic women rejected that narrative and instead decided that the solution was for more women to run for office. The result? A record-setting number of women elected to Congress and a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives.
