While vehemently live-tweeting the second round of the second Democratic debate on Wednesday evening, Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren was shut down by at least two female contributors to Fox News for making the baseless, ugly claim that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) slept her “way to the top” in her career.

Fox News contributor Kat Timpf retweeted Lahren and questioned why she would bring up a woman’s sexual life for no reason.

Fox News contributor and Fox Nation host Britt McHenry — who recently accused a Fox News co-host of sexual harassment — more forcefully blasted Lahren for the remark.

After the condemnations, Lahren didn’t respond, but instead doubled down, saying people should ask Willie Brown, whom Harris dated at one point, about how Harris got her position as attorney general in California.

On Thursday morning, she issued an apology, calling her sexist attack the “wrong choice of words.”

    Thanks, “Tomi,” for the important reminder that you don’t have to be a man to be a misogynist.

  2. When will Tami Lahren get her own Fox “News” show? She would fit right in with the guys running the place.

  3. What?

    They were unhappy because Harris might’ve stolen their thunder???

    Not a one of those females is anything but a talking head. Harris got through law school and has a lengthy resume of accomplishments.

    I suggest Tomi might be a bit jealous - she’s nothing but an influencer.

  4. Remember “thanks, Obama?”

    Thanks, Donald, for allowing shit like this to become mainstream.

    Oh, yeah. Thanks GOP for feeding and watering it as well.
