Like many of us, Tomi Lahren has tried to make sense of the idiotic and potentially deadly Tide Pod challenge. And, to absolutely no one’s surprise, she has decided to place the blame on liberals.

During her Fox News Final Thoughts segment, the conservative commentator accused left-leaning parents of allowing their children to essentially do as they please without the fear of consequences—even if those consequences lead to death.

“I know what you’re thinking: The Tide Pod challenge couldn’t possibly be political, could it? Actually, yes, it is,” she said. “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. Parents nowadays are taught to live and let live, just go with the flow, let your teens express themselves. But this modern, loosey-goosey, method of parenting doesn’t teach kids right from wrong or sane from insane.”

Lahren continued: “Now 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, Beyoncé is a god-queen, and eating detergent is funny.”

First of all, leave Goddess Bey out of this. (Didn’t you learn your lesson last time?) And second of all, where did you learn how to reach?  

No, really. There are two things we know about kids: They're expensive and occasionally do stupid shit, no matter what their parents’ political ideologies are.  To suggest the progressive movement is responsible for teens ingesting laundry detergent is far-fetched and incredibly transparent. We understand you have a deep-seated hatred for the left, but this argument is just ridiculous, Tomi. Even for you.
