Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren sparked a firestorm on Monday after she took to Twitter to praise the use of tear gas by the United States Border Patrol on asylum-seeking refugees.

“Children screamed and coughed,” the Associated Press wrote as events unfurled in Tijuana, Mexico. “Fumes were carried by the wind toward people who were hundreds of feet away.”

The gas was employed after “around 500” refugees tried to squeeze through border fencing.

“Bum-rushing the border is a CHOICE and has consequences,” Lahren wrote. “Watching the USA FINALLY defend our borders was the HIGHLIGHT of my Thanksgiving weekend.”

Twitter raged at Lahren for her sanctimonious support of the cruelty levied on unarmed civilians by President Donald Trump – over Thanksgiving weekend, no less.
