Twitter Schools Tomi Lahren After She Calls LGBTQ March 'Crybaby Fest Of Bulls**t'

”Your rights are not threatened — are you kidding me?” 😒

Tomi Lahren gave her haters another reason to hate her this week.

The rightwing political commentator took to social media on Sunday to slam The Resist March, which replaced this year’s Los Angeles Pride Parade on June 11 in response to forces “gathering in government that intend to take away our hard-won basic human rights.

In a video posted to Facebook, Lahren offered her trademark “final thoughts” on The Resist March, calling it a “crock of crap” and railing against participants who she claims turned “what has been a celebratory parade into a crybaby fest of bullshit.”

”Your rights are not threatened — are you kidding me?” Lahren incredulously asked. “In fact it’s President Trump and the Republicans who battle big government to protect your rights, to protect all of our rights.”

She added, “We get it — you’re gay and guess what, we don’t care. President Trump doesn’t care. In fact, President Trump, unlike President Obama, stood up for your rights day one. Obama had to evolve, remember that? Or were you too busy waving your rainbows and screaming your profanities about our President?”

But, as many have pointed out in the last year, Trump and his administration have hardly been allies to the LGBTQ community. From rolling back protections for trans students to neglecting to offer an official White House proclamation for Pride Month ― something President Obama did every June during his presidency ― Trump and his cabinet have yet to prove that they are truly “standing up” for queer rights.

Predictably, Twitter users weren’t too pleased with Lahren’s interpretation of the event and were ready to call her out:
