On Wednesday, November 30, Trevor Noah completely skewered conservative TV host Tomi Lahren during a frank conversation about Black Lives Matter and Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest on "The Daily Show."
If you're not familiar with Lahren, she's the host of "Tomi" on TheBlaze, where she frequently goes on nonsensical rants about liberals and their various activities.
When Colin Kaepernick was at the forefront of the country's attention over his national anthem protest, for example, she described him as a "whiny, indulgent, attention-seeking crybaby" while being a whiny, indulgent attention-seeking crybaby.
Lahren's analysis, if you can even call it that, of various issues is almost always purely anecdotal.
If she's actually doing research before her shows, it seems likely she's been digesting an array of fake news.
But, Lahren's rants definitely reflect the views of a lot of people across the country (just look at the view count on that Kaepernick video).
So, kudos to Noah for having her on "The Daily Show," which, let's be honest, regurgitates liberal perspectives on essentially every major issue — and respect to Lahren for walking into what she described as the "lions den."
It's commendable to see people with vastly different viewpoints sit down and try to have a civil conversation about controversial issues.
Lahren called Black Lives Matter the "new KKK," and Noah wasn't having it.
When it comes to issues like the Black Lives Matter movement and Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest, Lahren has adopted what is a pretty standard conservative perspective.
Simply put, she argues that the grievances of the Black Lives Matter movement are largely imagined and believes it incites violence against police officers, among others.
Back in July, Lahren called Black Lives Matter the "new KKK" in a tweet, which generated a lot of uproar.
Noah took issue with this, for understandable reasons, and questioned Lahren about it on Wednesday night.
Lahren defended her comments, stating,
But Noah shutdown this line of argument as well,
In other words, it's hypocritical for someone like Lahren, who says Trump doesn't represent the KKK even though the KKK supports him, to condemn an entire movement due to the actions of a few.
At one point during the interview, Lahren also said she doesn't "see color," which sounds nice, but it doesn't do a whole lot to eradicate systemic racism.
This is precisely why Noah responded to that comment by stating,
