Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren has been vociferous in her support for President Trump’s capricious ban on transgender service members. She’s also compared the Black Lives Matter movement to the KKK. But now she’s tackling an even more formidable strawman: Tide pods.

The would-be next blonde conservative darling warns listeners in a digital video that the supposed wave of teenagers eating the laundry detergent is all the result of, you guessed it, liberal politics – and Beyoncé.

“I know what you’re thinking: The Tide Pod challenge couldn’t possibly be political, could it? Actually, yes, it is. It’s just the latest symptom of a larger problem ― the breakdown of the American family. It’s what happens when kids aren’t taught boundaries, respect, consequences or logic,” she says.

“The left, which dictates popular culture, brainwashes young people into believing they live in a world where 64 gender options are up for selection, everything is free, Beyonce is a God queen, and eating detergent is funny. Americans ― we are better than this. Put down the soap, kids, and get a job.”
