Could she be a bigger hypocrite?

Last week, "Fox Nation" host and conservative commentator Tomi Lahren launched her new athleisure line, "Freedom." The line features star-spangled yoga pants that allow you to conceal and carry a handgun.

You know, just in case you live in such all-encompassing fear that you can't wander into your local pilates studio without packing heat.

Lahren launched her line with a defiant post on Instagram.

"Some have told me I'm too 'controversial' to have an athleisure line, that conservatives should just stick to politics and Trump cheerleading," the Fox personality wrote. "My response? Watch me. Introducing Freedom by Tomi Lahren by @alexoathletica full line available now."


One would think that such an aggressively-patriotic clothing line created by a MAGA-hat wearing conservative would be made in the good ol' US of A, right?

Nope. It appears as though Lahren's "America First" political views only go so far as her pocket book. Her clothing line is made by our opponents in the economy-killing trade war: China.

Freelance writer Robyn Pennacchia made this discovery after coming across screen shots of a potential buyer and someone selling an Alexo Athletica piece. When the vendor was asked about its materials, she responded: "It's 95 percent polyester and 5 percent spandex. Made in China though."

"I am shocked, shocked to find out that Tomi Lahren's Athleisure line for women who don't hate America is... Made In China," Pennachhia wrote.

Lahren has responded to the controversy by claiming she's being unfairly attacked. She made no mention of where her clothing line is manufactured.

Just a few weeks ago, Lahren was on Fox News praising President Trump for upping the standards required for government projects to carry the "Made in America" logo.

"He talks the talk and walks the walk. In America, it's Americans first. We should come first in our own dang country and under this president, we do," Lahren said.

Obviously she doesn't know that a slew of Trump's products are made in China.

This isn't the first time Lahren has been called out for being a hypocrite. Two years ago, during a conversation with Chelsea Handler, Lahren went on a 10-minute rant against the Affordable Care Act, aka "Obamacare," so Handler asked how she gets coverage.

"OK, so do you have a health care plan or no?" Handler asked. "Well, luckily I'm 24, so I am still on my parents'," Lahren replied.
The only reason Lahren was still able to be on her parents' is due to a provision in the Affordable Care Act.

After hearing Lahren's hypocrisy, the crowd then erupted into laughter and groans. "Stop, stop. She's being honest," Handler said in Lahren's defense. When asked which aspects of Obamacare she does like, Lahren replied, "Staying on your parents' health insurance."

If you are totally ready to move on from Donald Trump, you're not alone. According to a report last April from the Wason Center National Survey of 2020 Voters, "President Trump will be the least popular president to run for reelection in the history of polling."

Yes, you read that right, "history of polling."

After three years on the sidelines, Colin Kapernick will be working out for multiple NFL teams on Saturday, November 16 at the Atlanta Falcons facility.

The former 49er quarterback who inflamed the culture wars by peacefully protesting against social injustice during the national anthem made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday.

Kaepernick is scheduled for a 15-minute on-field workout and an interview that will be recorded and sent to all 32 teams. The Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, and Detroit Lions are expected to have representatives in attendance.

"We like our quarterback situation right now," Miami head coach, Brian Flores said. "We're going to do our due diligence."

NFL Insider Steve Wyche believes that the workout is the NFL's response to multiple teams inquiring about the 32-year-old quarterback. A league-wide workout would help to mitigate any potential political backlash that any one team may face for making an overture to the controversial figure.

Kapernick is an unrestricted free agent (UFA) so any team could have reached out to him. But it's believed that the interested teams are considering him for next season.

Earlier this year, Kaepernick and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid reached a financial settlement with the league in a joint collusion complaint. The players alleged that the league conspired to keep them out after they began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016.

Before the 2019 season, Kaepernick posted a video of himself working out on twitter to show he was in great physical condition and ready to play.

Kaepnick took the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and the NFC Championship game in 2013.

He has the 23rd-highest career passer rating in NFL history, the second-best interception rate, and the ninth-most rushing yards per game of any quarterback ever. In 2016, his career to a sharp dive and he won only of 11 games as a starter.

In the category of "claims to fame nobody wants," the United States can now add "exporter of white supremacist ideology" to its repertoire. Super.

Russell Travers, acting director of the National Counterterrorism Center, made this claim in a briefing at The Washington Institute in Washington, D.C. "For almost two decades, the United States has pointed abroad at countries who are exporters of extreme Islamist ideology," Travers said. "We are now being seen as the exporter of white supremacist ideology. That's a reality with which we are going to have to deal."

We no longer have to get up to turn on the lights or set the thermostat, we can find the fastest route to work with a click, and, most importantly, tag our friends in pictures. But interacting with the world isn't the only thing AI is making easier – now we can use it save the world, too.
