Conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren entered what she called the “lion’s den” Wednesday night. By that she meant participating in an interview with Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show” that has since gone viral.

Lahren has built her following around fiery criticism of things many liberals hold dear, not limited to Hillary Clinton, Colin Kaepernick and Beyonce, and making hyperbolic statements like saying that Black Lives Matter “is the new KKK.”

‘Daily Show’ Hopes to Thrive as Donald Trump Moves to Oval Office

On the show, the two went back and forth about why she supports Donald Trump, racism and the Black Lives Matter movement, and Kaepernick.

“I don’t see color. I go after Hillary Clinton and she’s as white as they come,” Lahren said at one point.

“You don’t see color? So what do you do at a traffic light?” Noah countered.

Since the interview aired, Lahren has been vocal on social media. When the interview ran on the “Daily Show” she wrote that she got an unfair edit: “If I was a liberal snowflake I would complain @TheDailyShow wasn’t “fair.” Instead I stand my ground & take it. 6 of 26 min interview aired.”

She later tweeted out the full interview which Comedy Central posted online. Lahren wrote, “I had a great time with @Trevornoah on @TheDailyShow and I respect our obvious differences but common goals.”

In response to criticism on both sides, she added, “To my fans: Trevor Noah is not a douche or a jerk. To Trevor’s fans: I’m not a b— or c—. We are people with opposing views. That’s it.”

Noah quoted her tweet, adding, “Thank you for being my guest Tomi. Our goal should be to destroy these “bubbles” not each other. You’re always welcome on my show.”

    I am a Trump supporter and felt she is leaning on her good looks to impress the public. The question, “why are you so angry” is valid. When you hold a valid position there is no need to over compensate.

  2. Basilica Hodge says:

    She never answered the question about exactly how black people should protest. She kept dodging the question.

    A love story in the making!

    She doesn’t make sense in a world of logic.

    • Capurafarol says:

      That’s funny, because I was going to say the same thing about him. His ideas are not consistent with each other at all.

  5. Tell It says:

    So ironic to hear a conservative whiner complaining about liberal whining.
