Conservative personality Tomi Lahren caused a stir on Twitter when she attempted to shame people who fly the Pride flag "higher than the American flag." The tweet elicited many responses.
Lahren is more than used to controversy, she depends on it to remain relevant.
This is why she tweeted the following:
If you fly a pride flag higher than the American flag, don’t worry we know exactly who you voted for and it’s embarrassing!— Tomi Lahren (@Tomi Lahren) 1624237498.0
"If you fly a pride flag higher than the American flag, don't worry we know exactly who you voted for and it's embarrassing!"
The tweet implies that anyone who flies a Pride flag over the American flag voted for Joe Biden instead of Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Which feels pretty obvious.
The Republican party has a fundamental issue with the LGBTQ community, so it's far more surprising when someone with the Pride flag actually voted Republican.
Meanwhile, if you're Tomi Lahren, we know exactly all your opinions and it's embarrassing.
And we know who you voted for and it’s embarrassing! to you! https://t.co/bjnvwdSlgD— Furman Avery (@Furman Avery) 1624329674.0

@ImKnotTheOne @_LOVEINVAIN @TomiLahren And they have the gaul to refer to themselves as patriots. Unamerican patriots.— barbsbuzz (@barbsbuzz) 1624240904.0

Lahren's post didn't mention Trump by name, but that's been her whole brand the last few years. It's difficult to imagine she was referring to a different election.
To that end, it's really easy to throw a dart and hit someone who voted for Biden over Trump. After all, he did win the popular vote by more than 7 million votes.
The internet doesn't take too kindly to people who put Trump above the support of the LGBTQ community.
@TomiLahren You know what flag I didn't see being used to beat Capitol police officers with on Jan 6? https://t.co/gf5V06AW7z— D Villella ❄️ (@D Villella ❄️) 1624243612.0

The right can't seem to get a solid messaging around the LGBTQ community. While Lahren is trying to shame them into supporting Trump, others in her camp don't seem to want them at all.
A former attorney for Trump claimed Biden is a "fake catholic" after the official Twitter account for the President of the United States updated its banner in support of Pride month.
