Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren backpedalled on comments made a day earlier about Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass). Rep. Kennedy delivered the Democratic response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union.
According to Lahren, Kennedy was a “little limp d**k” during his rebuttal to President Trump’s speech.
Kennedy, the grandson of deceased United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy, was criticized for his selection to speak given the familiarity of his last name.
Following her comments, Lahren, who was fired from conservative website The Blaze in 2016, said the following:
“My comments on my personal Instagram about Kennedy’s response were inappropriate and I take full responsibility for that,” Lahren said on Tuesday via Twitter. “I got too upset. I sincerely apologize.”
“If you haven’t yet had the displeasure of watching that little limp d**k’s response to President Trump’s State of the Union, I suggest you take some Pepto-Bismol or some Midol or whatever you need to do to get through it, because it was pathetic, and it was embarrassing,” Lahren said in a video on social media. “Oh my God.”
This is Lahren’s second run-in with the media this week, following an article that pointed out all of the times she has inaccurately been referred to as “Tammy” by musical artists.
