After Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren defended President Donald Trump’s chief of staff John Kelly for his racist statements about immigrants, a genealogist uncovered her ancestry comes from immigrants.
“You don’t just come into this country with low skills, low education, not understanding the language and come into our country because someone says it makes them feel nice. That’s not what this country is based on,” Lahren insisted.
Except, that’s exactly what happened with Lahren’s family. “The 1930 census says Tomi’s 3x great-grandmother had been here for 41 years and still spoke German.”
When the story went viral, Lahren took to Twitter claiming the hypocrisy is no big deal and even referring to the genealogist as “babe.”
“You stalked my family history as a part of your #resistancegenealogy and that’s all you got, babe?” she asked. She told her fans to watch Tuesday on Fox & Friends for more.

It’s unclear if Lahren is implying she has more immigrants in her ancestry that didn’t speak English or if she intends to somehow attack others about their ancestry. Either way, the internet was quick to roll their eyes and continue the mockery.

I mean it does kinda make you look like an asshole*.
*Not that you don't do a good job of that all by yourself.

Fox and Friends – What a nice comfortable echo chamber for you to rant. Grow a pair & get on a real news program to explain your hypocrisy

@TomiLahren, sometimes it’s better to remain quiet and look stupid, than opening your mouth and remove all doubt.
Remember this next time someone asks you to speak…
