After Caitlyn Jenner was stalked and harassed by a transphobic heckler at the Conservative Political Action Conference, 'Fox Nation' host Tomi Lahren tried to defend her by saying "there’s no room for your hate in the America First movement." However, she was trolled for her comments by the Left and the Right alike. 

Lahren's tweets came after the former Olympic gold decathlete, 71, was repeatedly called 'Bruce' by a troll, who also proceeded to film the abuse that Jenner was being subjected to. As the aspiring California governor was interacting with fans in the lobby of the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas on Friday, July 9, the unnamed abuser could be heard shouting: "Hey Bruce. Bruce. What do you think of the stuff they're teaching in schools regarding the LGBTQ? Bout Jesus Christ Bruce, don't forget about Jesus." He then added: "Look at that sick freak." Jenner pretended not to notice the man as she strolled through the lobby and headed straight for a waiting SUV.

Lahren took to Twitter to condemn the ill-treatment that Jenner had to face at CPAC. "Hearing how some 'conservatives' treated @Caitlyn_Jenner at CPAC makes my blood boil. There’s no room for your hate in the America First movement. We believe in freedom and we believe in limited government. The way she chooses to live her personal life harms you in no way!" she wrote in a tweet, while in another, added, "The attacks on @Caitlyn_Jenner are despicable. I’ll go to bat for her every single time and if you want to take my “conservative” card for it, take it and shove it. Your mob is no better than the Left’s and in fact, it’s uglier."



 



 

Lahren's tweets were soon criticized by a number of liberals on social media, who pointed out that right-wing media outlet Fox News, where she works, have often turned a blind eye to the divisiveness and discrimination that many conservative leaders propagate. "Wait until you see how they treat black people," one of them said, while another commented, "Jenner isn’t America First and neither are you." A third wrote, "I commend you for standing up for her rights. But c’mon. 'No room for hate'? That’s how you earn your living!" One more remarked, "Tammy …. It’s not a big tent."

The next quipped, "But there’s room for your hate?" Another chimed in, saying, "By 'no room' do you mean it’s full up with hate already?" One more noted, "Maybe you should carry that support for the LGBTQ community beyond only leveraging it for political power." A commenter tweeted, "Why are these face-eating leopards eating my face?" A person reacted with, "Tomi Lahren saying there’s no room for your hate in the America first movement? She actually just tweeted that?"



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

Even the Republicans were not happy with Lahren for defending Jenner as they did not approve of the latter. "There’s nothing America First or Conservative about Jenner. #NeverJenner," one of them said, while another wrote, "The t-identity is a social construct w/ harmful long term ramifications Nobody should have been intentionally rude to Jenner, but Jenner running for our party is rude to our country This libertarian mindset is what got us into this mess, a man in a dress won’t make it better."
