On Monday, Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren decided that it was a good idea to attack former First Lady Michelle Obama on Twitter. She was wrong.
In her tweet, Lahren orders Mrs. Obama to “sit down” after taking issue with the former first lady calling her husband Barack Obama a great president.
“Michelle Obama said we ‘had’ a great president. By what measure? Not in economic growth. Not in border enforcement. Not in strength on the world stage. Sit down, Michelle,” Lahren wrote to her 1.18 million followers in a tweet.
Lahren was responding to remarks Michelle Obama made at a rally in Las Vegas.
“Here’s what we have to do,” she said at the “When We All Vote” rally. “If we want qualified people that we trust, then people have to vote. Because you can’t vote some of the time and then sit out.”
“You know, we saw that happen. We experienced that. But we had a great president,” she said, referring to former President Obama.
“But every couple years folks sat out and said ‘well, I did my part, I voted once, I’m done, I’m out,’ ” she added. “And I’m just telling you that democracy doesn’t work that way.”
Mrs. Obama is a co-chairwoman of When We All Vote, a nonprofit initiative to register voters.
Lahren’s jab at the former Fisrt Lady didn’t sit well with Twitter users, who quickly hammered her in response:
Michelle Obama said we “had” a great president. By what measure? Not in economic growth. Not in border enforcement. Not in strength on the world stage. Sit down, Michelle.

You're joking, right? The only thing that #Trump has done for us is divide our country, separate us further from the rest of the world and prove that all it takes is money to take our nation's most righteous position. #FuckTomiLahren #DumpTrump

Let’s see, Obama
1. Saved the country from the 2nd Great Depression
2. Saved the US Auto Industry & it’s 2 Million Jobs
3. Killed Bin Laden
4. Had a higher monthly job creation rate than Trump.
5. Started a stock Bull Market that’s now 9.5 yrs old (Trump’s part is only 1.5 yrs).

Remember that time you had an original thought and lost your job at The Blaze for expressing it?
If anyone should sit the fuck down, it's you Sell-Out Barbie.

Oh, Tammy. I remember when I was a clueless 25 year old with no discernible expertise in anything. You’ll grow out of it. Maybe.

Your name should be Tomi LYING Lahren. Pres Obama brought us out of a recession and set the economy up for your racist pres. He had the highest number of deportation (done in a humane way) and he was loved around the fucking globe. Only stupid people will believe your bullshit.
