Water Thrown On Commentator Tomi Lahren During Sunday Brunch and Now President Trump Is Involved

Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren says she is disheartened and embarrassed but not broken after a patron threw water on her at a Minneapolis restaurant.

Lahren and her family were at a rooftop bar for brunch in the city, and video footage appears to show a fellow diner throwing a glass of water over her as she left. According to Jeremy Jackson, the bouncer at the restaurant, Lahren had complained about a group of people “scowling at her” earlier — though some reports are labeling the drink-throwing as “unprovoked,” Jackson told The Blast that Lahren had addressed the group of “scowling” diners as she left, precipitating the H2OhYesSheDid moment.

After the drink was thrown, another witness said that, “literally the entire restaurant started cheering.” (This witness also alleges that Lahren and her family were “extremely rude” to their server.) It then appears Lahren and her mom (who also got a lil’ wet) returned to the group’s table and confronted them, amid heckles from other diners.

Lahren then left of her own accord; local newspapers report the drink-thrower was later also removed from the bar.

On Wednesday morning, Lahren went on the cable show Fox & Friends to talk about the incident —

“You don’t have to like me, you don’t have to agree with my political opinions, but you don’t have the right to throw things at me,” she continued. “Is [this] the point that we got in this country, that you can’t disagree with somebody civilly without resorting to something like that?” 

President Trump tweeted his support for Tomi, calling her “a truly outstanding and respected young woman!”.

Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder said Wednesday that no one has reported the incident.

Comedian Kathy Griffin also spoke out in support of Lahren. She tweeted Tuesday night that she “couldn’t disagree more” with Lahren, but she has a right to her views.

Ultimately, Lahren said the whole thing was embarrassing. “At the end of the day I’m a person too, and I do get humiliated and embarrassed just like anyone else,” she said. And that’s why those tears come at night.
