Tomi Lahren Photoshops A Picture Of Colin Kaepernick, And Twitter Isn't Having Any Of It

Tomi Lahren is at it again. On Thursday, the lightweight political commentator, Fox news contributor, and staunch Trump supporter tweeted a doctored photo of Colin Kaepernick. In the image, Kaepernick appears to be kneeling in a WWII landing craft, watching U.S. soldiers storm the beach at Normandy on D-Day. 

Lahren captioned the photo “Citizen of the Year” and quipped, “Food for thought”: 

Lahren may have been hoping to ruffle some feathers on Thanksgiving, but she missed the mark. By depicting Kaepernick kneeling before a military battle to criticize his protests, she overlooked the fact that protesting racial injustice in the U.S. is an act of patriotism. Kaepernick fans took a quick break from arguing with family over dry turkey and room temperature side dishes to have a little fun with Lahren’s ignorance. 

Many Twitter users called out Lahren’s hypocrisy: 

Some tried to explain how military families’ sacrifices gave us free speech:

Others defended Kaepernick’s right to protest… again:

But several people got to the heart of it all with their own “food for though” photos:

And someone illustrated what we were all thinking:

Sit ALL the way down, Ms. Lahren.

This Mom Has An Ingenious Trick For Making Sure Her Daughter Isn't Lying To Her

I’m glad that smartphones weren’t around when I was a teen. I’d probably be like Kaelyn Demmon, 18, whose mom Heather Steinkopf has figured out a brilliant way to keep tabs on her.

Steinkopf told BuzzFeed that she requests selfies only some of the time, so Demmon never knows when she’s going to get a request for one. She also requests specific poses (like thumbs up) so her daughter can’t give her an old photo.

And yes, sometimes it has resulted in Demmon being caught in a lie. “There’ve been times when I’ve said I’m at Stevie’s when I’m at a bonfire or something,” she told BuzzFeed.

I’m just surprised she never went as far as to ask her daughter to hold up a copy of the day’s newspaper or something.

In just a few months, however, Demmon is going to college—and her mother won’t be able to keep tabs on her so easily anymore. “She’s awesome, so I’m not worried about her,” her mom said. If my mom is any guide, I don’t believe it for a second.
