Tomi Lahren, the 24-year-old conservative talk show host/sexpot that liberals love to hate, took a huge risk on Wednesday by joining Trevor Noah on the Daily Show. Brave? No. Entertaining as hell? Oh yeah.
Lahren is known for her hot takes on mundane topics like Colin Kaepernick, Black Lives Matter, Donald Trump — you know, issues that people rarely get riled up about. She’s also known for being hot. It’s that potent mix that’s gotten her 3.5 million+ Facebook likes, with some of her videos having even more views.
So when the talk show host came on the other talk show host’s show to talk about sensitive topics that people like to talk about, you knew people were going to be talking about it.
If you watch closely, you can see Noah slowly considering the consequences of him reaching over the table and choking her out.
At the core, this is a fantastic debate. It’s totally obvious and completely understandable that they have vastly differing views. But they debated the shit out of them. Trevor challenged Tomi, and Tomi challenged Trevor.
Granted, I found Lahren’s singing of “Bill’s busy” at the end creepy as shit and you should also probably never utter the sentence “what did the KKK do?” but she held her own in a hostile environment. That’s like traveling to The Swamp and putting up 40 points. That’s like heading to Bryant-Denny Stadium and only losing by a field goal. That’s like going to central Missouri and suppressing your urge to protest. That’s a W..
