Flaxen-haired conservative hot girl and political pundit, Tomi Lahren just got owned. And it's her own fault, really.
See, Lahren took to Twitter with what she thought was a super smart "Gotcha!" tweet about what the letters AR in name AR-15 stand for (presumably, information someone recently shared with Lahren herself)—as if the definition of this acronym was somehow germane to the arguments being put forth against the weaponry.
Instead, Lahren came off at best, as a defensive knowitall:
Hey Lefties, “AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle.” It stands for “ArmaLite rifle.” You want to take our guns but you don’t know jack about guns. See the problem?— Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren) March 1, 2018
Luckily, fantasy author and security contractor, Myke Cole stepped in to school her:
Unlike you, I served in the military, intelligence services, and law enforcement, including 3 spins in Iraq.— Myke Cole (@MykeCole) March 4, 2018
So, I’d say I know a thing or two about guns, Tomi.
And one of the things I know is that a lunatic like you shouldn’t be allowed within 10’ of one. https://t.co/cFLofGT5Tl
Not only did someone with military, intelligence, and law enforcement experience take her down with a single tweet, the rest of Twitter stepped up to show her just how ridiculous her argument was:
Turns out AR stands for so many things, thanks, Internet!
The “AR” in AR-15 doesn’t stand for “assault rifle” idiots it stands for Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Green Bay Packers who also invented it in 1937— Bucky Isotope (@BuckyIsotope) February 19, 2018
The “AR” in AR-15 actually stands for Ayn Rand, and the 15 is for the age you should realize her philosophy is poison— Nate Patrin (@natepatrin) March 1, 2018
Poor Lahren—at least she took a shot at it. 😂
