Fox News pundit Tomi Lahren took time out of her Good Friday observance to post a tweet that appears to attack the Parkland students. Calling herself the "leader of a movement" she offered the survivors advice, while saying they "signed up for" personal attacks – which have been nonstop from the far right.
"If you want to be the leader of a movement, you have to open yourself up for criticism and challenge. Lord knows I take my fair share of attacks and I’m okay with that. It’s what we signed up for. Buck up," Lahren said. And while she did not specifically mention the Parkland student survivors, most responded believing they were her target, especially given her previous statements.
Just one week ago Lahren earned massive mockery after tweeting, "Simply being anti-NRA is not a solution. March FOR something, not just against everything."
Many responded, reminding her that the more than 800 protests and rallies were literally called, "March for Our Lives."
Despite being a 25-year old worth an estimated $3 million who lives in Los Angeles and has a lucrative Fox News contract, just two weeks ago she claimed she is part of "middle America," in an attack on Hillary Clinton and Democrats.
Lauren's latest attack on the Parkland students was also met with outrage and consternation:
