‘Grow the f*ck up': Tomi Lahren blasted for blaming trend of white shooters on 'over-medication'
Fox News host Tomi Lahren argued over the weekend that two mass shootings in Texas and Ohio had been caused by “over-medication” and “absentee parents.”
“It’s not Trump’s fault. It’s not the NRA’s fault,” Lahren wrote in a Sunday tweet just hours after 29 people were gunned down in El Paso and Dayton, where suspects in both shootings were white.
