In her "First Thoughts" on Fox Nation, Tomi Lahren outlined what happened between a group of Catholic schoolkids, a Native American tribal elder and a group called the Black Hebrew Israelites.

Lahren recalled the initial outrage over a short clip from the confrontation that showed one of the students facing elder Nathan Phillips as he beat a drum in the boy's proximity.

However, Lahren said a longer clip of the incident released thereafter "removed the liberal smokescreen" being put up by critics of the students.

"It became crystal clear the students were not harassing [Phillips]," she said, adding that the Black Hebrew Israelites were calling out anti-white slurs against the teens while Phillips approached them with his drum.

Lahren said the group "heckled" the students for some time prior to the time the shorter clip began.

She said that some critics still said the students appeared "threatening" because they were wearing bright read "Make America Great Again" hats -- attire commonly sold by the reelection campaign of President Donald Trump.

Lahren called the fiery reaction from the left and the press "on par" with their playbook:

"Take a group of young white kids who support Trump and find an angle to make them look like monsters."
