On Aug. 23, Tomi Lahren launched a line of patriotic clothing for discerning lady nationalists to display their love for America.
It turns out they can also show their love of the globalist cabal whose free trade policies wrecked the real American heartland by shipping manufacturing jobs overseas.
Lahren’s really covering both bases. On Friday, the conservative pundit shared a message from Alexo CEO Amy Robbins, which is making Lahren’s “Freedom” line, noting their products are made overseas.
Like many American small business owners, Alexo aims to be Made in America. We are working towards that. A message from Alexo CEO Amy Robbins. pic.twitter.com/D09selTIpx— Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren) August 30, 2019
“We had to make a decision that millions of American companies, especially small businesses have to make, when starting a business and go with the America based company that happened to have their manufacturing facilities overseas,” Robbins’ statement said.
Robbins said the company faced “little option” to go anywhere but the U.S. due to regulation and labor costs. However, they are working to bring the company back to the U.S. soon.
Naturally, well, you know what happened.

Look at this pathetic excuse. Shame on @TomiLahren for not supporting America and her workers. ACTIONS speak louder than words, Tomi. I hope you'll give it a try one of these days. #TomiMadeInChina https://t.co/mrraBIlnRo— Andrew Kimmel (@andrewkimmel) August 30, 2019
