Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren slammed Joe Kennedy on social media following his bizarre Democrat rebuttal to President Trump’s outstanding State of the Union speech. The FOX News contributor, who only last year, found herself in the middle of another controversy with her former employer, The Blaze, (owned by the former FOX News host Glenn Beck) after she was slammed by her fans for an appearance on The View. Lahren was heavily criticized by her conservative fan base after she contradicted her previous stance as an anti-abortion advocate, and proudly announced to the ultra-left wing panel of The View that she was pro-choice.
Many of her fans believe she was simply vying for a spot on The View, as she threw her loyal conservative fan base under the bus, in hopes of securing a spot as a co-host.
Shortly after her departure from The Blaze, Tomi Lahren was offered a spot as a political commentator on Fox News. Tomi Lahren knew the risks involved with being an outspoken critic of the left while working for the top cable news network, but following Kennedy’s speech, she let loose on him anyway.
The left, predictably, went after Lahren with a vengeance.
After Joe Kennedy gave a whiny and embarrassing rebuttal to one of the strongest SOTU speeches by any President ever, Lahren took to social media to post her observations about Kennedy’s appearance and his non-masculine qualities.
“Journalists” on the left were quick to capture her comments and posts before she deleted them:

Here’s a clip from Tomi Lahren’s videotaped commentary in response to Joe Kennedy’s speech, that has since been deleted. Josh Billinson, editor of the IJ Review, however, managed to capture the video of Lahren’s comments and is sharing it on social media. IJ Review’s editor tweeted: “Here’s Fox News contributor @TomiLahren referring to a Democratic congressman as “that little limp dick.” Some very insightful and professional political commentary.
Lahren apologized the next day on Twitter with this tweet: “My comments on my personal Instagram about Kennedy’s response were inappropriate and I take full responsibility for that. I got too upset. I sincerely apologize.”

In a world where mainstream media and cable network shows like MSNBC and CNN openly bash our President, and death threats against Donald Trump by celebrities are all too common on social media, we’re wondering what you think about Lahren’s comments? Did she cross the line when she questioned Kennedy’s masculinity on social media? We’d love to hear your thoughts below.
