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.”

    What a great interview Trevor Noah had with Tomi Lahren. He got some cheap shots in, and I wonder
    about the studio audience that seemed to have no love for her yet let her speak. It was refreshing to
    see an extended interview go so well. They both were excellent listeners as well as communicators. If
    I had a criticism of Trevor, it would be that he treated it as a debating exercise and his goal seemed to
    be to build up debating points with his jabs at her well stated points of view. I was not familiar with either
    one of them and gained some respect for the “Daily Show” where they were willing to let an intelligent
    spokesperson with conservative view express herself on their liberal platform.

    Not familiar with either of these two but the man appears to be a cognitive lightweight compared to the lady

    Aaand over to Fox News. Another dumb blond $$$ w#$&#!

    • Geoffrey Bramhall says:

      Obviously you did not watch the interview, or did so with the audio off. She’s more that a pretty face,
      check it out.

  4. Erin says:

    Also I disagree with her on the deepest level. Human rights and choice. Morals and justice. That’s what right and she doesn’t endorse that at all. She flip flops and makes terrible points because they aren’t back up besides a few facts

    The reason I dsiagree with Tomi Lahren and would love to debate with her idiotic arguments. She says what she isn’t just to say that’s who she is. Shes a hypocrite. Her points are so back rolled and every argument Trump throws is just as bad. Funny how this isn’t the country I grew up in. They impeached bill Clinton over a lie. And Trump lies in many interviews. I have many valid sources that’s aren’t CNN or stupid biased media.

  6. Anne says:

    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.

  7. 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!

  9. great03520 says:

    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.

  10. Tell It says:

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