Tomi Lahren Debuts Athleisure Line For The Woman Who Wants Yoga Pants That DON'T Hate America
Of the many difficulties that conservative Republican women face in America, perhaps purchasing yoga pants and sports bras is the most fraught of all. These days, it is practically impossible to find a pair of leggings without "FUCK AMERICA" or a hammer and sickle emblazoned on them somewhere. But Tomi Lahren is here to save the day with her very own pro-America, pro-Second Amendment athleisure line.
Now, Tomi knows that some people might say she is "controversial" to have an athleisure line, because people are often thinking about who is and is not allowed to have an athleisure line. But she will show them! She will show them all! She made some leggings and she does not care who knows it. AMERICA. FREEDOM. UNATTRACTIVE STRETCH PANTS IN UGLY PATTERNS.
Behold! There is also a video:
Freedom by Tomi Lahren youtu.be
In this video, which is pure gold, Tomi rages against the well-established liberal domination of the leggings industry:
"I think there are a lot of young girls out there that don't really feel like they have a brand that represents their freedom, they don't feel like they have a brand that represents their rights. It's kind of been taken over by a certain group of people. And I wanted my fans, my followers, my friends to have a line that they could wear and feel proud to be an American, proud of freedom, proud of the country that they live in. And that's really what this line represents." [...]
""It's not just a pair of leggings and a sports bra, this is saying that somebody like me has a place in this industry, whereas we might often be locked out of it. That's what Alexo is, that's what Freedom by Tomi Lahren is, it's a community, it's a friendship, it's a following of people that wanna wear something and support, also being able to get into an area where people tell us we shouldn't be able to get into."
Are people keeping Tomi Lahren out of the leggings industry because she's a conservative or because she is not actually very good at designing clothes? It is so hard to tell!
So far, her design comes in two America-loving patterns, American stars and camouflage — but like, pink camouflage because she "likes to be a little bit unconventional" — and can be bought from on the Alexo Athletica website for way the hell too much money. For me anyway. The last pair of yoga pants I bought, I bought at Marshall's for $9.00. But probably they were commie liberal leggings that hate America, unlike Tomi Lahren's unapologetically capitalist $89 leggings.
The high price tag of course, is for the sheer originality of leggings with liberty stars on them or pink camouflage sports bras, concepts no one before has ever been brave — or pro-America enough — to try.
As the line's founder, Amy Robbins, explains in the video, Alexo is a pro-Second Amendment athleisure brand featuring leggings and running shorts with extremely unsafe-looking gun holsters.
I remain slightly unconvinced that right-wingers have been cruelly frozen out of the fashion industry due to liberal bias alone, rather than because they tend to be so bad at art that they think pink camo is "unconventional" and daring. After all, Coco Chanel was pretty much a Nazi and she managed to do OK.
Anyway, this is now your open thread! Go and be fashionable!
Hey Wonkette readers, you gonna spend $89 on Freedom Leggings, or are you going to donate to Wonkette?
