Toni Lahren, a conservative talking head who once compared the Black Lives Matter movement to the KKK, sat down with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show for an extended interview about her frightening thoughts on everything from Colin Kaepernick, flyover states and how she “doesn’t see color.”


Throughout the interview, Lahren wiggled with nervous energy in her seat and had a lively discussion with Noah about her views which, for the record, are controversial at best and unnecessarily inflammatory and pretty racist at worst.

They covered an awful lot of of ground — Obamacare and how it was destined to fail; Donald Trump as a“level-headed and reasonable” person; First Amendment rights, and how immigrants should be “grateful” to be in this country.

“For somebody who is not racist, you have to spend a lot of time saying, ‘I’m not racist,’” he said. “What is your biggest issue with black lives matter? Black Lives Matter has never said go out and shoot people,” Noah clarifies. “Did you know a black man is 18.5 times more likely to shoot a police officer than a police officer is to shoot a black man?” she said. “Those are statistics that no one wants to talk about.”

Noah made an excellent if not terrifying case that Lahren is now part of the mainstream media, as she argued against that classification, despite the fact that her very-popular show on The Blaze is an insanely unhinged display of the id of America empowered by Donald Trump’s imminent presidency.

When asked whether or not she’s racist or what, she responded “I’ve never used racial slurs to address people.. To me, true diversity is true diversity of thought, not true diversity of color. I don’t see color.” Noah countered with a bit about how she handles traffic lights, but Tomi batted that away like a particularly irascible kitten.
