Tomi Lahren Photoshops A Picture Of Colin Kaepernick, And Twitter Isn't Having Any Of It

Tomi Lahren is at it again. On Thursday, the lightweight political commentator, Fox news contributor, and staunch Trump supporter tweeted a doctored photo of Colin Kaepernick. In the image, Kaepernick appears to be kneeling in a WWII landing craft, watching U.S. soldiers storm the beach at Normandy on D-Day. 

Lahren captioned the photo "Citizen of the Year" and quipped, "Food for thought": 

Lahren may have been hoping to ruffle some feathers on Thanksgiving, but she missed the mark. By depicting Kaepernick kneeling before a military battle to criticize his protests, she overlooked the fact that protesting racial injustice in the U.S. is an act of patriotism. Kaepernick fans took a quick break from arguing with family over dry turkey and room temperature side dishes to have a little fun with Lahren's ignorance. 

Many Twitter users called out Lahren's hypocrisy: 

Some tried to explain how military families' sacrifices gave us free speech:

Others defended Kaepernick's right to protest... again:

But several people got to the heart of it all with their own "food for though" photos:

And someone illustrated what we were all thinking:

Sit ALL the way down, Ms. Lahren.
