Tomi Lahren, known for her "angry conservative millennial" persona, has often commented on Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the National Anthem.
She's made the mistake of coming after both Kaepernick and Beyoncé in a widely ridiculed tweet from 2017.
Police-hating Beyoncé presents police and America-hating Kappy with a “legacy” award. This is how far we’ve fallen.… https://t.co/FJruj5VIv5— Tomi Lahren (@Tomi Lahren)1512544115.0
And the bad hot takes continue even into 2021.
Tom Brady's relationship with Donald Trump has come with a lot of criticism, considering Kaepernick was benched and essentially blacklisted from the NFL for taking a knee at football games to protest racial bias and police brutality. But after the insurrection at the Capitol, nothing happened to Brady as far as backlash.
Lahren weighed in on this, as usual.
So Kaepernick is trending because Tom Brady (a skilled quarterback) hasn't been canceled due to his friendship with… https://t.co/3iyEOIF9c5— Tomi Lahren (@Tomi Lahren)1611606648.0

People were immediately on Lahren's case, because these things simply do not warrant any kind of comparison.
@TomiLahren Just for comparison at end of there last seasons Brady had QB rating of 88 and Kapernick had 90.5. One… https://t.co/vCez16LhPe— thefreckledmoose (@thefreckledmoose)1611693874.0

Lahren has a plethora of bad tweets available for viewing, but this nonsensical tweet is most definitely up there for the worst of all time.

Kaepernick's record in his final active year as a player in the NFL was pretty impressive. He threw for 16 touchdowns and four interceptions, and added 468 yards and two touchdowns as a runner.
There is no indication that his record slipped before he was benched—the only thing that changed was that he kneeled during the National Anthem.

Lahren's mind hasn't changed over all these long years of being proven wrong again and again, so it's unlikely that it ever will.
She may want to watch her content though. Twitter has started banning people who lie constantly and spread misinformation.
