Tomi Lahren: AOC Encouraged Physical Violence Against Me With Cardi B Tweet

January 23, 2019 7:56 a.m.

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren escalated her feud with rapper Cardi B by suggesting in an interview with “Fox and Friends” Wednesday morning that freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was endorsing and even encouraging violence against her by retweeting the rapper’s comments.

Following Cardi B and Lahren’s Twitter tussle on Monday, Ocasio-Cortez stood up for the fellow Bronx native in a tweet.

In a different tweet, that Ocasio-Cortez did not retweet, Cardi B said she would “dog walk” Lahren.

“I’m not surprised at anything Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez But again, I’m also impressed the way the left does the mental gymnastics to justify it,” Lahren told Fox News Wednesday. “Listen, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, on all daily basis, says that Trump supporters and President Trump himself incite violence and then she goes and applauds and encourages a tweet by a rapper who threatens physical violence against so, again, this is a double standard at play and not just rappers, it’s not trust trolls on Twitter. These are elected representatives who are endorsing and saying the same thing.”
