Journalist Soledad O’Brien fired back at Fox News personality Tomi Lahren after she called Americans “sheep” for following pandemic safety rules on Memorial Day.

“I gotta hand it to COVID-19, you sure did expose the sheep among us,” Lahren wrote in a tweet over the Memorial Day weekend.

O’Brien responded with a flurry of tweets making the point that nearly 100,000 Americans have died in the pandemic so far.

“I think she means to say—on a day when we honor those who gave their lives in service, we think of the 100,000 Americans, who have died in the midst of a pandemic,” O’Brien wrote. “We think of the millions who have lost their livelihoods, and those who are fearful of what the future holds.”

“We reflect with sympathy on those who have lost loved ones—unable to hold their hands or kiss the goodbye one final time,” she continued. “We are sympathetic to those trying to juggle their kids’ remote-schooling and work zoom calls and cooking and cleaning and life.”

"Lindsey Graham back in 2018... said that even if were were just into the primary season, he would not want to see a nominee advance in the election year," Hume explained. "I think the circumstances may have changed since [McConnell] outlined that."

For many Americans, the death was so troubling that "No. No. No." trended nationwide on Twitter.

But for embattled Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), the death was apparently an opportunity to raise campaign cash, according to the local political website Iowa Starting Line.

Ernst is being challenged in November by Democrat Theresa Greenfield. The Des Moines Register newspaper is set to release new poll results on the race on Saturday.

We are 50 some days away from an election,” with the report noting that "Murkowski said her reasoning is based on the same reasoning that held up the confirmation of former President Barack Obama’s final nominee to the Supreme Court."
