Tomi Lahren, a commentator of the so-called "conservative" variety, isn't the usual sort of guest one finds on The Daily Show. But after exchanging words from their respective platforms earlier this year, the Blaze personality and Daily Show host Trevor Noah met face-to-face Wednesday to spar over the increasingly troubling habits of the President-elect, the goddamn KKK, and conservatives' hypocritical stance on Black Lives Matter activists.

Noah's first question, fittingly, took direct aim at Lahren's usual Blaze approach. "Why are you so angry?" Noah asked. Lahren disagreed with Noah's assessment, but Noah doubled down. "It's like Ellen [DeGeneres] saying, I don't like dancing," Noah joked. "You are angry about everything, it seems." The tone of the interview then shifted into deftly serious territory, with the two discussing Lahren's previous criticism of Black Lives Matter activists and related protests.


"You are the same person who argued on your show that just because Trump has supporters from the KKK doesn't mean he's in the KKK," Noah said, pointing out the hypocrisy of Lahren and other conservative outlets' views on the anti-police brutality activism group. "What if somebody said, 'I felt emboldened by Tomi Lahren so I went out and shot black people'? Are you now responsible?"

When asked whether she considers herself a "conservative" in the traditional sense, Lahren earned some surprise laughter from Noah with this response: "I'm a Millennial," she said. "I don't like labels." Peep the full interview, in which the two also discuss Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest, above.
