11 Fiery Things To Know About Conservative Superstar Tomi Lahren


She's arguably one of the biggest conservative women in media.

She's white-hot in terms of engagement on Facebook, with her videos literally reaching millions.

Tomi Lahren knows when to pick a fight and knows exactly how to ruffle the feathers of people who disagree with her.

She's EVEN bigger than The Blaze's founder, Glenn Beck. But there's a bunch of things you might not know about her.

1. She's only 24 and studied at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and was given a show on conservative channel One America News Network

2. Some of her videos garner more views that the President-Elect's own on his Facebook page.

She calls him a "warrior" and that, "I'm not going to criticize Donald Trump if he makes compromises, because compromise is being part of a good leader. However, I will hold Trump's feet to the fire, because there are too many Americans who are counting on him."

3. She spits off words 50% faster than the average English speaker during her infamous "Final Thoughts" segments, which are three-minute rants directed at the camera.

They're usually dripping with sarcasm. She's taken shots at the Black Lives Matter movement, Beyoncé, protesters mad at the election, and second-string QB Colin Kaepernick, who has been kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

4. Despite her MASSIVE following, she has no desire to be in traditional news.

"I never wanted to be neutral," she says. "I never wanted to report on the news, I wanted to comment on the news, I wanted to make the news."

5. Although an ardent Trump supporter, during the U.S. primaries she actually supported Florida Senator Marco Rubio bid for president.

6. She told The Daily Show's host Trevor Noah, "It's just that there are things that need to be said, and a lot of people are afraid to say them."

7. Her video criticizing Kneelin' Kaepernick has been watched more than 67 million times.

But she's also compared the Black Lives Matter movement to the Ku Klux Klan, taken shots at African-Americans for their unemployment rates, her drug abuse and other social problems, as well as saying feminists' fight for equality but has been taken "too far" by radicals.

8. Despite her powerhouse status in conservative circles where she picks apart what she perceives as PC culture, her family was not particularly political.

I mean, she says that they watched the nightly news and talked about what was going on in the world, though. "That's where I sharpened my skills at debate... that's where it really started, from a very, very young age."

9. She grew up in a ranching family in South Dakota with Norwegian and German ancestry. Her grandfather was a WWII paratrooper, her uncle won a Vietnam Purple Heart, and her cousins are Marine Corp officers.

But she'll be the first to tell you that: "First and foremost, I'm an American."

10. A week after her breakup from an ex-boyfriend, she addressed her audience and talked about heartache and what she went through.

It was a bit of a starch contrast to her other popular bombastic videos.

11. She doesn't care if you hate her. But knows that anyone around her will get hit too.

"It's something that is difficult to explain to people, that if you associate yourself with me, that you might get some backlash, you might get some social media trolls," she says. "I always have to preface every relationship with that."
