Tomi Lahren, the hyper-conservative host of Tomi on The Blaze, who you might recognize from the Facebook posts of that dude you went to high school with, visited Trevor Noah on The Daily Show last night, and it went pretty much as expected. Lahren, in her typical hot-headed way, clinged tightly to her platform as she wrestled with a relaxed Trevor Noah over such issues as Black Lives Matter, Colin Kaepernick, immigration, and, of course, that billionaire reality-TV game show host that won the presidency last month.

These segments are basically set up to be viral eviscerations, and this one is no different. Tomi generally feels like she’s on the defense, especially when she says things like “I don’t see color” and “Donald Trump is reasonable.” Final thoughts: This is an awkward half hour that will likely dominate your social media feeds for the next 24 hours.

So prepare to tug your collar because here’s Tomi Lahren on The Daily Show looking for a leg to stand on.

Can you hear that? It’s the sound of “Hello, darkness, my old friend.” Or is that the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme.

Whatever it is, it’s the sound of someone giving into a man that they called a “phony” and “fraud.” At least, that’s the look on Mitt Romney’s face as he eats dinner with Donald Trump as he once again interviews for a job in the Trump administration. He looks scared, broken, and maybe, in danger — harkening back to that time just a few months ago when it looked like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was being held hostage by our president-elect.

But don’t take my word for it, Twitter has already had a go at captioning the saddest night of Mitt Romney’s life — and this guy lost a presidential election.

Check out some of the best reactions to the moment when a million voices inside Mitt Romney cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

President-Elect Donald Trump, the billionaire reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency in November, is a busy guy. Between tweeting that citizens should be jailed for exercising free speech and trying on new hats, he’s also a wheelin’ and dealin’ business man.

Over the past few weeks, you might have heard something about a few of Trump’s “conflicts of interest,” i.e. he’s not supposed to be doing Trump business stuff while he’s doing Trump president stuff because the constitution. When it comes to things like this, it can be hard to follow due to the fact that business is boring. Thankfully, we have The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, who put together this awesome segment explaining Trump’s conflicts of interest.

Check it out and enjoy the next four years, America!

Nothing quite like the holidays to get people riled up right? After her ridiculous childish tantrum, she screams, "I VOTED FOR TRUMP!!!!”

They say a lot of people in this country live in an echo chamber, but one Georgia man lives in a “Bubble.”

Not an actual bubble, though. He’s not Jake Gyllenhaal in Bubble Boy. He just refuses to find out who won the presidential election. 

In Brunswick, Ga, The Huffington Post reports, Joe Chandler fell asleep on election night without finding out the results, and he intends to keep it that way. 

“Having subtracted myself from this political fracas and all of the mayhem of the digital media, I kind of found the center of the cyclone, it is very peaceful in my bubble of ignorance,” Chandler said.

via Reddit

When he goes outside, he pops on a pair of headphones and a sign that reads, “I don’t know who won, and don’t want to. PLEASE DON’T TELL ME.”

Ignorance is bliss, but Chandler doesn’t think he’s going to make it 2020, like he hopes.

“I’ll be lucky to make it [tomorrow].”

That must be nice, to be able to separate yourself from society so much that not only do you not know who the president is, but also people aren’t shouting it at you on the street. Anyway, for the rest of you, and especially Joe Chandler: Donald Trump is our next president. Welcome to reality.
