Tomi Lahren – aka Tomay Larraine, aka Timone LaPumba, aka Timothy Chalalala – is known for her bold, bigoted, incorrect takes.
Did we mention bold?
In the Socratic tradition Lahren couched her wisdom in the form of a sarcastic question, wondering why the Democrats would attempt to obscure O’Rourke’s ethnicity “if white privilege is really a thing.”
Question, if white privilege is really a thing, why are the Democrats and Leftist mainstream media hacks going to such great lengths to make Beto (Real Name Robert) seem Hispanic?

It’s not the first time Lahren has tried to make an issue of O’Rourke’s name.
Never mind that O’Rourke himself shared a photo a year ago that proves “Beto” is a childhood nickname not some recent political calculation.

But after the hosts recent inane remarks Twitter justice was swift and true.
Who the hell is trying to make him seem Hispanic? Oh right, no one.

No one is. Somehow you are trying to make this a thing! He was called Beto since he was a baby. But in your head, I’m pretty sure you believe his parents called him Beto as a baby to make him seem hispanic in 2020 ??? #sad #crazy pic.twitter.com/apjj5VOIxR

Because you misunderstand things

Now these are some spicy roasts…
I thought he was Hispanic because of how you hate him.

you ever seen one of those old-timey radios with a hand crank that you had to turn in order to power the radio? rickety, inefficient, a real struggle to get anything going? that's what I imagine is going on in your brain every time you try to come up with an original thought

Others tried to introduce some context and nuance, things Tomi hates.
It’s not “great lengths” I was born 30 mins away from his city and those who are named Robert (white or Hispanic) in the region can be given the nickname Beto. You’re just not accustomed to it cause you’re not from there. Talk about real issues ?

Combine the last part of his first name: Robert
With the first letter of his last name: O'rouke https://t.co/XWNchfbNIu

Some wondered whether Tomi had the same questions for members of her party likeTed Cruz, whose real first name is “Rafael.”
Why does Rafael Cruz call himself Ted?

Ask Rafael Cruz.

Basically no one had time for Tomay’s shtick on a Wednesday.

She just gets stupider with each passing tweet. I'm beginning to think she might actually have some sort of neurological problem. Are brain worms a thing? https://t.co/VPx11bsXRX
