President Donald Trump tweeted his full-throated support for Fox News pundit Tomi Lahren early Wednesday in the viral wake of a liquid-launching incident in Minneapolis last weekend.
At 6:22 a.m. Wednesday, Trump’s @realdonaldtrump issued the following: “Everybody is with Tomi Lahren, a truly outstanding and respected young woman! @foxandfriends.”
According to the widely seen video snippet and Lahren herself, a customer seated at the bar tossed what appeared to be water from a glass at Lahren as she was departing Union Bar & Restaurant’s rooftop dining area Sunday with her parents after brunch.
Lahren, a controversy-courting conservative television personality, has compared Black Lives Matter to the KKK, attacked Beyoncé and picked a fight with rapper Jay-Z.
