Fox News’ Tomi Lahren had a furious meltdown on Tuesday over the popularity of Netflix’s documentary “Knock Down the House,” which follows multiple Democratic presidential candidates over the course of the 2018 midterm campaign, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
After showing a trailer for the documentary, Lahren angrily denounced Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal, which Lahren falsely claimed would ban cows.
Lahren then fumed that the documentary “somehow” won the Audience Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, while also getting a “100 percent approval rating” from critics listed on the movie-rating website RottenTomatoes.com.
“What the hell is going on here?!” Lahren asked. “One of two things: One, like I said, we all like a good train wreck. The fact that this dimwit darling pulled off a 2018 election victory is an enigma we all want to unravel. Or two, the scary answer: The country’s becoming more and more socialist, less intelligent, less logical, and obsessed with utterly absurd ideas.”
Lahren finished off by bitterly complaining that Netflix has not yet paid for a documentary about conservative women.

Trump administration reopens dangerous ‘longline’ fishing off California
The Pacific leatherback sea turtle, at up to 2,200 pounds the largest turtle on earth, could disappear from our oceans, yet Trump regulators have OK’d a type of fishing that could wipe out the massive animals.
Pacific leatherback sea turtles are one of eight turtle species the Fisheries Service has identified as most at risk of extinction. The number of West Pacific leatherback sea turtles declined about 6% a year from the 1980s through 2011.
Storm may force Army Corps to flood thousands of acres of farmland
The Army Corps of Engineers could flood 130,000 acres of farmland in southeast Missouri by blowing up levees on a floodway on the Mississippi River if the remnants of Barry or other storms this summer dump too much rain.
The Coast Guard has posted plans to halt barge traffic if necessary on the Mississippi from the junction with the Ohio River at Cairo, Ill., to downstream of New Madrid, Mo.
Last chance for impeachment: Next week Robert Mueller will shape history — but how?
When Robert Mueller comes to Congress next week to field questions — "answer" is too optimistic — about what he learned in his investigation of Russia and Donald Trump, it’ll be his and our last chance to get it right; to inform the American people of the enormity of Trump’s offenses and our sacred duty to impeach him. If he doesn’t want to, or can’t be made to, we may all say, in unison with Mitch McConnell, “case closed” as all hope of impeachment will have died.
It seemed as if our chance had passed; that due to the misfeasance of Robert Mueller and some Democrats, impeachment was all but dead. Trump’s latest racist tantrum — his noxious series of tweets directed at four progressive Democratic congresswomen — revived it simply by reminding Congress that he is morally unfit to be president of the United States. He is the greatest proved liar in the history of American public life. He runs the most corrupt administration in the history of the American presidency. He helped rig one election and now invites the rigging of another. He not only admits to being a serial sexual predator, but brags about it. But all that we knew.
