Tomi Lahren has been venturing out of her home on social media, making the rounds as of lately on mainstream shows. In addition to regular appearances on Fox News, she’s ventured into the lions den when she appeared on The Daily Show, and was given a condescending interview by host and alleged-comedian Trevor Noah.
On Friday night she appeared on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” joined by failed Democrat Senate candidate Jason Kander, neuroscientist and Islam critic Sam Harris, and RINO strategist Rick Wilson.
At one point, Kander decided he’d try to stump Tomi by proving that she doesn’t even know the names of the four Americans who lost their lives during the Benghazi attacks. Granted, it would be pretty embarrassing if she didn’t, given how much of an anti-Hillary talking point the attacks became in the 2016 election.Kander complained that Republicans “used the people who died [at Benghazi] as political chess pieces for quite a few years,” then turned to Tomi and challenged her to name the four Americans who died in the attacks, telling her “you don’t know.”
Actually, she did know. “Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith,” she replied, to Kander who then tried to act as if he was congratulating her for knowing (when we all know that had she not known, he would’ve shamed her for it).
Had the reverse happened, and Tomi been a young liberal host, and Kander a Republican politician, would we ever hear the end of the claims of “misogyny” from the Left for him being so condescending? Of course not.
