Tomi Lahren is at it again and is holding nothing back while talking about President Obama and his lack of knowledge when it comes to radical Islam.
On Monday, Tomi Lahren, a conservative news anchor for the Blaze, spoke about the recent terrorist attack that took place Sunday morning at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
“President Obama’s JV team is at it again,” Tomi Lahren began. “29-year-old Omar Mateen, an American-born Muslim has been on the FBI’s radar for some time. In fact, he was interviewed by the FBI three times, but was deemed non-threatening. How ’bout now?”
“And for the love of God, will someone please brief President Barack Obama on what radical Islam is because after 44 attacks under his reign, he still has no f’n clue,” Tomi continued.
Lahren then shared an excerpt from President Obama’s speech he gave following the Orlando attacks in which he talked about learning “the facts” regarding what happened Sunday and the shooter’s motivation in the killings. Click here to read Obama’s full speech.
“We are still learning all the facts. This is an open investigation. We’ve reached no definitive judgment on the precise motivations of the killer. The FBI is appropriately investigating this as an act of terrorism. And I’ve directed that we must spare no effort to determine what — if any — inspiration or association this killer may have had with terrorist groups. What is clear is that he was a person filled with hatred. Over the coming days, we’ll uncover why and how this happened, and we will go wherever the facts lead us.”
Tomi Lahren was clearly upset over Obama’s speech. Although Mateen called 911 prior to his attack and pledged allegiance to ISIS (he also mentioned the Boston Marathon bombers) and ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, Obama still said they weren’t sure if he was affiliated with any terrorist groups. Lahren was also angered because the president refuses to use the term “radical Islam” when speaking about the terrorist attack and the motivation behind the murders of 49 innocent people.

“The facts, Mr. President, lead us to radical Islam,” Lahren continued following the clip of Obama’s speech. “The fact is that terrorist Omar Mateen called 911 before the attack to pledge his allegiance to ISIS. The fact is, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack. The fact is that the mass-shooting at the Pulse nightclub came just weeks after top ISIS officials issued a call for attacks throughout the world during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which began on June 6. That’s right, the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Any questions President Obama?”
The attack, now known as the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, was carried out by a man named Omar Mateen, who had legally purchased firearms from the Fort Pierce gun shop in previous weeks. Mateen, who was killed during a shootout with police, was a security guard from Fort Pierce, Florida, who had been placed on a terror watch list by the FBI. Although he was interviewed several times, he wasn’t deemed a credible threat to the people of the United States, CNN reports.

Despite Mateen being identified as a possible terrorist, he was legally allowed to purchase weapons. On Sunday, he entered the Pulse gay nightclub, armed with an assault rifle and a pistol (Sig Sauer AR-15-type assault-style rifle and a Glock 9mm semiautomatic pistol), and opened fire on the crowd. In total, Omar killed 49 people and wounded another 53 during his ambush that included a three-hour hostage situation.
