Right-wing troll Tomi Lahren has crawled out from under her bridge to spout more idiotic rhetoric, this time by claiming gun rights are gay rights.

Lahren made the remarks in response to the recent mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso. Following an interview with NRA social media director Billy McLaughlin, Lahren claimed that because McLaughlin is gay and supports the NRA, gun rights are synonymous with gay rights.

“You know, when I interviewed Billy McLaughlin it was actually during Pride month,” Lahren says. “He wrote an excellent article in The Washington Post talking about how gun rights are also LGBT rights and he also happens to be gay and the social media director of the NRA in his 20’s, so the NRA really does represent everybody. Gun rights really are human rights and he attests that perfectly.”

Lahren has a long history of defending the NRA and of attacking the LGBTQ community. As for McLaughlin, he supports Donald Trump, claiming that Trump–whose administration is one of the most homophobic in history–is a friend to the queer community. No doubt that has something to do with his paycheck.

For that matter, logic suggests Lahren is simply grifting for pay herself and doesn’t believe any of the nonsense she spews. That, or she’s inhaled way too many fumes while bleaching her hair.
