Tomi Lahren speaks out about water attack: ‘I’m a real person and these things embarrass and humiliate me’

Published

Tomi Lahren had water thrown at her by foes while having brunch with her parents. Lahren said that she wouldn’t have said or done anything about it but the woman who threw the water made it public.

Host Sean Hannity lamented about the poor young woman so ruthlessly attacked by someone so violent.

“This is over the top and beyond the pale,” Hannity said.

Even Kathy Griffin came to Lahren’s aide, noting that violence is never the answer. While Having water thrown in your general direction is hardly a pie in the face or even a punch in the face as Richard Spencer suffered, Lahren said that the woman who did it clearly wanted to get internet famous.

Lahren, who rose to Fox News fame from her own internet audience, said that the incident was “humiliating.”

“I think people forget I’m a real person and these things embarrass and humiliate me, and for my family, I didn’t want them to be part of this,” she said. “It’s something I have grown used to. Not something I wanted to subject them to. I have a following made up in large part by young girls. I hope they’ll look at this, especially conservative girls and realize if I can handle this with grace, they can to.”

Hannity told her that there is no reason that she should ever be humiliated by a “coward, spineless jackass” that did this to her.

“This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. It’s not the first time something physically happened to me,” she lamented. “I usually ignore it. I would have ignored this too if the video wasn’t leaked.”

It’s unclear if such humility will help Lahren be empathetic to others with whom she similarly disagrees.

White House sidelining medical experts for ‘too much focus on public health’: AP reporter

Published

President Donald Trump and other White House officials are reportedly tuning out public health experts -- who they believe are "deep state Democrats" who aren't working against the president's re-election.

The Washington Post reported that officials with the Centers for Disease Control are feeling pressure from the president to sign off on reopening schools and businesses despite dire coronavirus risks, and Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that's what he's hearing, as well.

‘Betrayal’: Trump fuming over Brett Kavanaugh voting with majority in tax return cases

Published

on

According to Jonathan Lemire of the Associated Press, Donald Trump is reportedly focusing his ire on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, along with Neil Gorsuch,  for siding with the majority of justices who ruled on Thursday that the state of New York must be given his tax returns as part of a criminal investigation.

Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" with co-host Willie Geist, Lemire was asked how the president -- and the White House -- are reacting to the setback for the president.

"You're at the White House, it's either a witch hunt or a big win depending on who you ask," host Geist began. "[Trump attorney] Jay Sekulow is also calling it a win. The president doesn't want his tax returns, financial records to see the light of day particularly before election day. What's the concern now with the two 7-2 decisions?"
