Right-wing pundit and apparent fedora (or “fedon’tra”) wearer Tomi Lahren is mad again. This time it’s over liberals wanting to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The Angry White Lady™ posted a video of herself ranting and raving about how ICE, law enforcement, and the second amendment are all we have to protect ourselves from the legions of people seeking sanctuary in our country or whatever. It was 11 seconds of Lahren really being pissed off, in the way that only a privileged and irritable brat like her can. And Twitter loved it.
The first to post it (I think) was comedian Patrick Monahan, who tweeted the video along with the observation, “Didn’t know it was possible to be this mad in one of those hats.”

I don’t think anyone did. It is a unique accomplishment.
From there, he kept going, tweeting the same screengrab of Lahren’s hissy fit and adding different white person situations to which it could apply. In a moment, a beautiful meme was born.
Everyone else began to pile on, adding their own jokes to the screengrab.
Everything about her hat (that hat!) and expression scream, “I DEMAND TO SPEAK TO YOUR MANAGER!” It’s very hard to take her seriously. Well, it’s always hard to take her seriously, but this video takes it to a whole new level.
