Tomi Lahren dressed like AOC for Halloween, has sassy response for critics

Powered by Topple

Halloween is meant for two things: Eating candy and dressing up as something scary.

For Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren, that meant doing herself up as socialist “it” girl Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A photo posted to social media caused quite a stir on Thursday, prompting a response from the conservative spitfire.

“This Halloween, I decided to dress up as the thing that scares me most, the Democratic Dimwit Darling herself,” she captioned her photo. “I’m not afraid of ghouls, ghosts, zombies or political incorrectness. I am far more terrified AOC was actually elected to the United States Congress. Talk about a haunted ‘House.'”

For her part, Lahren donned a brunette wig, black-rimmed glasses, a plain black blazer, and a folder reading “Green New Deal.” The look was capped off with a copy of Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto.” The only thing missing was AOC’s trademark red lipstick.

Liberals were quick to pounce on Tomi’s choice of costume, including actress and activist Alyssa Milano.

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” Milano tweeted dismissively. “Also, aren’t you part of the party who claims to be for working Americans? Why say “bartender,” like it’s a bad thing?”

While Lahren received hundreds of thousands of likes and positive comments on her photo, the detractors made enough of an impact to warrant a response. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the apology they were likely expecting.

It is unclear whether the people who are insulting Lahren for her AOC get-up also derided those who dressed up as other politicians this Halloween, such as President Trump.

Watch:

Lahren is no stranger to controversy, though, and knows how to stand her ground as a result.

In September of this year, Lahren was forced to apologize for saying that open borders in America would prompt citizens to arm themselves from unknown threats coming into our country. The comments were perhaps ill-timed, coming shortly after the El Paso massacre.

In August, she was forced to admit that her patriotic clothing line was not made in America, but “aims” to bring production to the United States. The problem? Increased production costs and government regulation. The admission resulted in relentless mocking on social media.

That same month she was slammed by some of her own Fox News colleagues to implying that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris “slept her way to the top.” The backlash was enough to prompt a genuine apology from the young politico, but not before CNN senior reporter Oliver Darcy allegedly received statements from outraged FNC employees.

But perhaps her biggest and longest-lasting scandal is her decidedly un-conservative support for Roe v Wade and defense of abortion. Lahren faced renewed criticism over her stance on the Alabama abortion bill that she deemed “too restrictive” and even “dangerous.”

Despite the trouble that it may sometimes inspire for her, one can remain confident in the fact that – for better or worse – Tomi will speak her mind.
