READ: Tomi Lahren Called Out by Fox News Commentators for Tweeting: ‘Did You Fight For Ideals or Did You Sleep Your Way to the Top with Willie Brown?’

There was no shortage of Republican critiques and insults as candidates vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination embarked on a second round of debates.

One insult from Fox Nation’s far-right commentator Tomi Lahren, however, went too far. Now, her colleagues are calling her out.

Lahren live tweeted the Democratic debate and decided to critique Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA)’s relationship with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown. Though the two dated over 20 years ago, Lahren still decided to accuse Harris of using sex to gain status.

The tweet was met with instant backlash—including from Lahren’s women colleagues.

Fox contributor Britt McHenry didn’t hold back.

Nor did Libertarian Fox News contributor and Fox Nation host Kat Timpf.

Or meteorologist Janice Dean.

Even some Republicans were taken aback.

At first, Tomi tried to double down.

But life comes at you fast.

Lahren is known for not mincing words when it comes to railing against Democrats and their causes. What’s more, her apologies are rare.

Less surprisingly, Democrats weren’t pleased at all with Lahren’s remarks.

Though Democrats often have their misgivings with Fox News’s misrepresentations and even outright lies, some commended the hosts for speaking out against a comment so clearly out of line.

Perhaps Tomi Lahren will learn from her own advice.

Something tells us she’ll be back to her old antics soon.
