Videos from the incident show Lahren getting into a heated exchange with a patron of the restaurant.
“We were just enjoying brunch after I did a show the night before and unfortunately there was a group of people probably around my age that thought it would be funny to throw water at me and then start chanting profanity,” she told the Fox & Friends hosts, adding: “This was something that was embarrassing for me, and embarrassing for my family… But I’m tough, my family is tough, we can handle it.”
The segment seemed to touch a nerve with the president, who decided to offer his support for her to his Twitter following.
“Everybody is with Tomi Lahren, a truly outstanding and respected young woman! @foxandfriends,” the president wrote.
Lahren responded by quote retweeting the president and adding an American flag emoji.
