Fox Nation Tomi Lahren: Radical Dem Proposals Like 'Green New Disaster' Mean Trump, GOP Will 'Keep on Winning'
Not already a Fox Nation member?
In her First Thoughts on Fox Nation Friday morning, Tomi Lahren reacted to the Green New Deal "failing miserably" in the Senate.
The sweeping Democratic proposal for dealing with climate change failed to reach the 60 votes necessary to begin debate on the non-binding resolution, with 42 Democrats and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) voting "present." No senator voted to begin debate on the legislation, while 57 lawmakers voted against breaking the filibuster.
Lahren said she was happy to see the "Green New Disaster" -- which has been championed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) -- "fail before it even starts."
She noted that Ocasio-Cortez criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) for rushing the vote to the floor without a hearing.
Because I encouraged them to vote present, along w/ others.
McConnell tried to rush the #GreenNewDeal straight to the floor without a hearing.
The real question we should be asking: Why does the Senate GOP refuse to hold any major hearings on climate change? https://t.co/de8oKOXeJf

"Funny thing is, even those who cheered the idea and even co-sponsored the bill did not participate in the vote. Not Kamala, not Corey Booker," Lahren said.
She wondered if Democrats are starting to realize that a plan with an estimated $93 trillion dollar price tag and a mandate to phase out air travel and cows may not be the best 2020 election strategy.
"But don’t worry, they still have plenty more radical ideas they will advocate for. And that means we will keep on winning, just like we did this week and just like we will in 2020."
