Tomi Lahren mocks Kim Kardashian for being 'political thought leader of the right'

Tomi Lahren has found a new high-profile Twitter target: Kim Kardashian.

The conservative pundit took to Twitter Monday to hit out at the reality star, who has aligned herself with the White House to promote her new passion project for criminal justice reform.

Kardashian, who successfully lobbied President Trump to grant clemency to Alice Marie Johnson last year and most recently thanked him for trying to persuade Swedish authorities to free rapper A$AP Rocky, has been lauded by some conservatives for working with the current administration.

But Lahren — who has previously called out soccer star Megan Rapinoe and rapper Cardi B on social media — isn’t so impressed with Kardashian’s backing of the First Step Act, legislation which offers improved provisions for inmates as well as reduced federal sentences for drug offenses. Kardashian is credited with encouraging Trump, who signed the bill into law last December, to support it.

Fox Nation host Lahren is no fan of the First Step Act, calling its supporters “felon-friendly” and calling Kardashian’s role as the “the political thought leader of the right” a “mistake.”

Lahren’s outburst was prompted by Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s segment bashing the law, which he claims, citing exclusive data from an unnamed Trump administration official, “has allowed hundreds of violent criminals and sexual predators back onto the streets.” (According to the data Carlson claims to have received, 960 of the 2,243 inmates released under the First Step Act were in prison for drug-related offenses, while the remainder were imprisoned for crimes varying from robbery to sex offenses to homicide.)

While Kardashian has not yet responded to Lahren’s diss, the controversial commentator is getting her fair share of criticism.

Kardashian wasn’t exactly spared, however.

Kardashian made her most recent visit to the White House on June 13, where the president lauded her for being a “powerful advocate” for the First Step Act.
