The Daily Beast calls her a “right wing ranter” and yesterday the BBC profiled the 24-year-old under the heading “The young Republican who’s bigger than Trump on Facebook”. Although Trump trumps her with 15-million followers against her 3-million, her videos regularly get more views than his.

She says whether you love or hate what she’s saying, her comments are at least getting a reaction… and that’s what’s needed right now in America.

Her latest comment calling #BlackLivesMatter the new KKK (the white supremacist Klu Klux Klan group) caused a huge reaction. South African comedian Trevor Noah pulled her up on it on his Comedy Central show, The Daily Show.

Watch below as the two argue it out. Affinity Magazine posted the videos saying: “Feeling down? Watch Trevor Noah DESTROY Tomi Lahren…” Trevor tweeted a message afterwards to Tomi, thanking her for being on the show and saying they should destroy the “bubbles” and not each other. She also tweeted positively about their separate views but common goal.

Quartz said “Noah’s performance last night gave us a real glimpse of the 32-year-old comedian’s potential as an interviewer” and that “by hosting and facilitating such a pleasant conversation with an ideological rival, he showed that he may yet carve out a vital role for himself.”

QZ said “the interview easily could have been vicious, but both she and Noah kept things respectful”… and after the ‘destroy’ headlines the two each tweeted positive messages to each other:
