"Why are you so angry?" Noah asked Lahren to start after showing a clip of the conservative host for TheBlaze railing against protesters of President-elect Donald Trump in the days after Trump won the election.

After saying she wasn't actually angry, Lahren said, "Sometimes people just need to be called on their s---."

The nearly 30-minute interview covered a lot of political and cultural ground including Lahren's conflicted response to Trump's lewd "Access Hollywood" tape, Colin Kaepernick, Black Lives Matter, and the "shake-up" Lahren has said Trump will bring to Washington, DC.

It grew particularly awkward when Noah asked Lahren what she would like people to know about her that they didn't understand.

"I wish that we could disagree with each other without thinking we are bad people or ill-intentioned folks," she said. "Because I criticized a black person or the Black Lives Matter movement doesn't mean I'm antiblack. It doesn't mean I don't like black people or that I'm racist."

"To me true diversity is diversity of thought, not diversity of color — I don't see color," she added, the last line eliciting gasps from the audience. "I go after Hillary Clinton, and she's as white as they come."

After Lahren said, "I don't see color," Noah asked, "What do you do at a traffic light?"

Lahren also defended comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to the KKK.

"You're starting to loot, burn, and riot — what did the KKK do?" Lahren said.

"Did you say, 'What did the KKK do?'" Noah said before pushing back against Lahren's logic.

"There is a distinction between a movement and the people," he said. "That is something that we keep coming back to."
