After conservative commentator Tomi Lahren told Michelle Obama to “sit down” after she called her husband, Barack Obama, a great president, Kathy Griffin eviscerated Lahren on Twitter
“Oh really you dime store Barbie? Mrs. Obama may go high, but I certainly won’t,” Griffin wrote on Monday. “Go fuck yourself, Tomi. You evil, horrible shell of a human being.”

Mrs. Obama may go high, but I certainly won’t. Go fuck yourself, Tomi. You evil, horrible shell of a human being. https://t.co/itEn9Q0Paq

Lahren angrily tweeted about a speech the former first lady gave at a rally in Las Vegas.
“Michelle Obama said we ‘had’ a great president. By what measure?” Lahren wrote, ending her tweet with: “Sit down, Michelle.”
Michelle Obama said we “had” a great president. By what measure? Not in economic growth. Not in border enforcement. Not in strength on the world stage. Sit down, Michelle.

Michelle Obama was speaking at a rally for When We All Vote, a nonprofit initiative she co-chairs that aims to register voters ahead of the November primary, and she talked about putting “qualified people that we trust” in office.
“Here’s what we have to do: If we want qualified people that we trust, then people have to vote. Because you can’t vote some of the time and then sit out,” she said, before adding about her husband: “You know, we saw that happen. We experienced that. But we had a great president.”
