Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren has been called a “Kellyanne Conway in training.” Over the past few months, she has compared the #BlackLivesMatter movement to the KKK, expressed blatant xenophobia, and still found time to get into an orthography feud with Wale.

I can sit here and say that, as a Republican, and I can say, ‘You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.’”
