Trashing her own generation is a favorite talking point of conservative media darling Tomi Lahren. But her latest tweet is getting some pushback from Twitter users for it’s poorly thought-out nature.
On Wednesday, Lahren tweeted, “As I watch millennial men struggle to lift their bags into the overhead bin I am reminded how f’d we are if there’s a draft.”

Some took the opportunity to take a dig at the fact that Lahren once admitted that she benefits from Obamacare:
As I watch my fellow millennials on their parents health insurance rail against Obamacare I realize how f’ed we are
