What Does ‘Snowflake’ Mean? An Investigation Into Tomi Lahren’s Favorite Insult


2016 was a shitty year for a lot of people, except for Tomi Lahren, who arguably had the year of her life. Starting in 2015, Lahren started to go viral on Facebook with her rants about liberalism and democrats, and her love for everything that was pro-Donald Trump. To her credit, she identified a market (angry white people) and formulated a plan (scream when she talks). Her fame has absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that she’s smoking hot. Nope. Not at all. Her virality is all based on the legitimacy and eloquence of her opinions. It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she’s a hard 9, you misogynistic pigs.

Anyway, as we’ve gotten to know Tomi more and more, we’ve also become further familiarized with her lexicon. Where Trump loves saying ‘huge’ and ‘great’ and ‘China,’ Tomi loves saying ‘snowflake.’ The only problem is, I don’t understand what the hell snowflake means, and I’m not sure anyone else does either.

Point is, if I’m going to be yelled at by Tomi Lahren, I want to at least understand what the hell she’s talking about. So, let’s take a look back at all the different times she’s called someone a snowflake, and try and see if we can find a common denominator.

After election protests:

After appearing on The Daily Show:

After the MTV’s white guy New Year’s resolution video:

After Bernie Sanders tweeted… something?:

And finally, after Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech:

So, according to Tomi Lahren, the following are considered ‘snowflakes’: protesters, college kids, Bernie Sanders, MTV, Daily Show viewers, and celebrities. What’s the connection here? I went over to Urban Dictionary to see if they had a valid definition, however, all of the definitions were submitted after Lahren’s rise to prominence, meaning they were inspired by, and not preceding, Lahren’s use of the phrase.

And why snowflake? When I hear the word snowflake, I think of someone who is possibly addicted to cocaine, not an espresso-drinking, mustached liberal.

So, what do protestors, people who watch The Daily Show, Bernie Sanders, and Meryl Streep have in common? They disagree with Tomi Lahren!

Therefore, a snowflake is officially anyone who has a different opinion than Tomi Lahren.

The more you know.
