Great news, everyone! Tomi Lahren, conservative political pundit and famously fashionable internet presence has just announced she’s releasing a new clothing line entitled…wait for it…
Designed by Lahren herself, with a patriotic design featuring stars and stripes, the new clothes should be a perfect embodiment of the American spirit, which Lahren has long advocated.
Whoops, they were actually made in China.
I am shocked, shocked to find out that Tomi Lahren's Athleisure line for women who don't hate America is… Made In China. pic.twitter.com/doZyJOcQVO

Nothing more patriotic than making your gun yoga pants in china. https://t.co/lqQUCowNiW

Twitter got a huge kick out of Lahren’s hypocrisy.

I cannot sufficiently express much it perfectly encapsulates Tomi Lahren's entire existence that her "FREEDOM" line of American-flag themed concealed carry workout clothes are made in China pic.twitter.com/2yKs7cc3eX

As all Lahren fans know, she’s always encouraged companies to make their products here in America.

It turns out that advice was aimed squarely at products SHE didn’t have a hand in.

Trump says no more dealing with China. You will need to find a new manufacturer, up prices, and ultimately close the line.

A few people thought Lahren’s designs seemed a bit…familiar.

Lahren responded to the criticisms on her profile.
Many of you in the vile place that is Twitter will mock and degrade me no matter what I do. Quite frankly, don’t care. This is my line and I’m damn proud of it and all the women part of it with me. https://t.co/MGiB0FcM5v pic.twitter.com/R1ZuZLdwh3

Unfortunately, her post did little to stop the deluge of mockery.
Is your Freedom made in China?

Many people felt a little uncomfortable about the yoga pants’ signature design feature: a gun holster.
Because having a place for a gun while doing a rabbit pose is exactly what women want, Tammy.

Most of us have just never felt the need to shove a gun into our pants. It’s actually a really bad idea. Treat your vagina respectfully. They are magical.

Thanks Tomi. So excited to go for a run while properly carrying my gun. It’s a nice reminder about how our society continues to raise abusive men that get away with assaulting us while we are now left endangering our own lives to keep ourselves protected bec the system fails us. pic.twitter.com/ZvayRNUVab

Shot through the vagina

The entire situation even spawned a viral hashtag: #MadeInChinaTomi!
I will absolutely not tweet #MadeInChinaTomi.
That would be just awful for her if people found out that the “All-American,” MAGA supporting, love it or leave it, @TomiLahren had her clothing line made in China.
— Travis Akers (@travisakers) August 28, 2019
I will say one last thing before I go to bed.
The amount of twitter conservatives who publicly and privately supported the #MadeInChinaTomi hashtag was fascinating.
Occasionally, we can all agree on something.

Tomi might want to consider running these advertisements.

Sometimes, in the face of such endless hypocrisy, the only thing you can do is roll your eyes.
