Fox News host Tomi Lahren on Thanksgiving Day took yet another shot at Colin Kaepernick. But her message on Twitter Thursday left many bewildered.
Lahren frequently bashes Kaepernick for taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality against African-Americans. Thursday, she tweeted out a photo of Kaepernick kneeling during the D-Day invasion of Normandy.
Food for thought. pic.twitter.com/2ita0blH0O

The tweet led to an angry backlash:

This does not qualify as an actual thought

While both you and Kaepernick were jobless…he donated a million dollars to various charities in the US.
You sold horrible shit on Instagram.

One- those guys fought to protect our right to protest, two- kneeling is a sign of respect, three- it's kind of disrespectful to manipulate and use the images of soldiers fighting and dying just to encourage further incivility at dinner tables across the county.

It’s thanksgiving, give us a break with your hate mongering bullshit and go be with loved ones if you have anyone who stands being around you.

Pretty astounding that the spoiled & entitled person who wrote this thinks she has the standing to associate herself w/the men who fought on D-Day…stealing valor not surprising from someone who defiles the flag by wearing it. https://t.co/LLUtpxg9Uk
