One of Donald Trump's most outspoken supporters in the media is right-wing firebrand, internet personality, and Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren. After Lahren claimed that the mainstream media wants to see the president die, social media quickly went viral.

Lahren on Trump

Donald Trump and the press don't get along and haven't since the day he announced his campaign to run for president back in June 2015. After referring to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers," Trump planted a seed that quickly grew into a war of words between himself and the media.

The feud expanded throughout the 2016 election, and has only become more tense over the last year with Trump in the White House. To start off the new year, Trump's rift with the media only got worse following the release of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," which the president has since dismissed a "fake news." In recent days, Trump has attempted to troll the news outlets and journalists by revealing his "Fake News Awards," while also dealing with speculation that his recently released physical exam results were not accurate. As the pressure continues to mount, Tomi Lahren decided to make a bold claim about the media's feelings towards Trump during the January 18 edition of "Hannity" on Fox News.

Joining Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night, Tomi Lahren gave her take on the media's attitude towards Donald Trump, with a special focus on their response to his aforementioned physical exam. "They want him to fail and they him to be ill and they want him to die," Lahren said with rage, while adding, "let’s be honest, that’s exactly what they want."

Not stopping there, Tomi Lahren then called for health exams to be done with top Democrats in Congress in an sarcastic attempt at questioning the health of others in Washington.

"We should have that same doctor examine folks like Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters because they need all the help they can get," she added.

Twitter reacts

Following Tomi Lahren's remarks on Fox News, critics on Twitter were quick to fire back. "No, just go into exile somewhere far away without internet access. And soon," one tweet read.

"Die? No. That’s too good for him. I want him to spend the rest of his life behind bars soiling himself," a Twitter user added. "Wow! How do the people on Fox News manage to sleep at night?" a tweet wondered. "Will someone stuff a sock in her mouth?" another tweet stated.

"No you crazy nutcase we just want a guy who governs for the 99% not just a small base of his supporters and rich folks," a Twitter user wrote. "On the contrary GOD wants them to die in the lake of fire coz JESUS said HE is capable of doing that and warn them to watch out w/their lives," a social media user posted.
