Lahren appeared Wednesday morning on “Fox & Friends” to discuss the incident, and the president rallied his followers around her a short time later on social media.

"Maybe you don’t understand what the word 'everybody' means," pro wrestler Hurricane Helms noted. "Tomi Lahren looks like she smells like mayonnaise and despair."
