Tomi Lohren has politicized the Tide Pod challenge—and she’s blaming liberals, of course.
On her “Final Thoughts” segment, uploaded Friday to Fox News’ Facebook page, the conservative pundit sounded off on the breakdown of the American family and connected a culture of entitlement to the rise of teenagers eating Tide Pods. Doing so can burn your esophagus, and she acknowledges that even “dumb” teens know this, but says that liberal pop culture has created an environment that encourages them to do it for the social media validation.
“Not only is it insanely dumb, it’s downright pathetic,” Lahren says. “It’s a parenting problem… It’s the latest symptom of a larger problem: the breakdown of the American family.”
She says modern parenting has been derailed by liberal “go with the flow” values that produce “wild animals who think they can do whatever they want.”
This somehow then devolved into, as it often does with Loren, a rant of hateful nonsequiturs, with Lohren saying that the left’s culture elevates Beyoncé to a god and lets teens have “64 gender selections.”
“Parents used to wash their kids’ mouths out with soap and now kids are voluntarily eating it,” she says.
Somehow Lohren forgot that knucklehead teens have been daring each other to do idiotic nonsense since the beginning of time—like drag racing, setting themselves on fire, and electrocuting their own nipples.
