Lizzo shuts down Tomi Lahren over Trump’s impeachment: ‘Give ya boy some advice on telling the truth’
Right-wing pundit Tomi Lahren fired the first salvo, replying to Lizzo's tweet regarding impeachment and said: “Well @realDonaldTrump is still your president. Truth hurts. #KAG2020”. Instead of ignoring the provocation, Lizzo shot back
The Trump impeachment led to a Twitter spat between singer Lizzo and conservative political commentator, Tomi Lahren. The war of words began after Lizzo retweeted her own September 24 tweet that just reads “IMPEACHMENT” with a peach emoticon, adding the comment: "This aged well".
Right-wing pundit Tomi Lahren fired the first salvo, replying to her tweet: “Well @realDonaldTrump is still your president. Truth hurts. #KAG2020”. Instead of ignoring the provocation, Lizzo shot back: "The only thing that hurts is this country is divided by hatred fueled from people like you.. Why don’t you do better and give ya boy some advice on telling the truth, he’s gonna need it.”
Lahren, voiced what many Republicans felt about the impeachment, like Rep. Barry Loudermilk who compared President Donald Trump's impeachment to the "sham trial" against Jesus Christ before his crucifixion. Lahren tweeted: "Hatred? This whole witch hunt was fueled by hatred from the Left, from those who can’t stand the fact the country is soaring under this president. You don’t have to like or support."
Lizzo was still happy to reply and tweeted: "Anyways, I’m having a great day!" However, didn't bother to reply to Lahren's last tweet. This is not the first time the Fox Nation host has had beef with hip hop artists and rappers (like Jay-Z, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj) on Twitter about politics.
Her last twitter feud was with Cardi B after the rapper posted a series of videos criticizing Trump for the government shutdown in January 2019. Cardi B shut down that feud with a single tweet. "Leave me alone [or] I will dog walk you."
The House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump on December 18, for "abuse of power" and "obstruction of Congress". He is the third president ever to be impeached, after Presidents Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, who were both impeached by the House but later acquitted by the Senate.
President Richard Nixon resigned before the full House could vote to impeach him. Trump's impeachment process will most likely end in a stalemate in the Senate, where the Republicans hold an upper hand.
