Fox News commentator and social media star Tomi Lahren has made a name for herself in recent years for her staunch support of Donald Trump and controversial rantings. After her latest tirade criticized illegal immigrants, her own family tree was revealed to include the very thing she has been attacking.

Lahren's family tree

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump tapped into the world of social media and used his following to create a new style of campaign politics.

With Trump's increased use of platforms like Twitter, his supporters followed in lockstep and became stars in their own right. One name that has been a hard-line Trump supporter is Tomi Lahren, who parlayed her following into a job at Fox News.

One area where Lahren and Trump always see eye to eye is on immigration, with the right-wing blonde bombshell recently coming to the defense of Chief of Staff John Kelly who accused many immigrants of not wanting to assimilate into the United States.

In response, author and journalist Jennifer Mendelsohn looked back at census records to find information about Tomi Lahren's family tree and found that some of her relatives came into the United States undocumented, revealing to be exactly what the Fox News commentator is against.

"The 1930 census says Tomi's 3x great-grandmother had been here for 41 years and still spoke German," Mendelsohn tweeted, before pointing out that her great grandmother had been in the United States for a decade and still never learned to speak English. Not stopping there, Mendelsohn added that Tomi Lahren's great-grandfather, Henry Lahren was baptized in 1884, but the information was recorded in Norwegian.

Double down

In her last tweet on the issue, Jennifer Mendelsohn clarified why she did the research and posted it for the public to see. "This is not about playing gotcha," she said, before accusing the Fox News host of pushing a "specious agenda" that unfairly targets current immigrants. "I'll keep showing just how alike they really are," Mendelsohn concluded. As of press time, Lahren has not issued a rebuttal [VIDEO] to the census findings of Mendelsohn.

Twitter cheers

After Tomi Lahren's family tree was revealed, critics on social media were pleased.

"Tomi Lahren, chief snowflake, care to comment on your own family history of immigrants that came here while not speaking any English??? No... I thought so," on tweet read.

"Tomi Lahren, Wanted to make sure you saw this. I love learning about my family’s history so I’m sure you do too," a Twitter user wrote. "(TL) will just ignore and pretend this won’t be floating around the internet, proving what a white supremacist hypocrite she is. Thanks for doing the work and finding all of this out! Nice job," a social media user added. "

Trump's stance

Donald Trump started his campaign for president by running on a message [VIDEO]of immigration reform. He quickly came under fire for labeling illegal immigrants as "rapists" and "murderers," which allowed him to tap into a core base of supporters who think the same way that he does. While Tomi Lahren appears to be on board with that line of thinking, her own past reveals that she might want to change her tune.
