Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren blamed liberals for “brainwashing” children into trying the dangerous internet trend of eating Tide Pods in a video posted Friday.
 
Lahren dove into the Tide Pod Challenge on a “Final Thoughts” video for Fox News Insider, linking the epidemic to left-wing parenting and culture.
 
“The left, which dictates popular culture, brainwashes young people into believing they live in a world where 64 gender options are up for selection, everything is free, Beyonce is a god-queen and eating detergent is funny,” she said. 
 
“This isn’t a social media problem, a Tide problem or even medical problem. It’s a parenting problem, like many things wrong with modern society.” 
 
Social media platforms have been removing videos posted by teens of they or their friends eating the laundry packets, and poison control centers have issued a “high alert” in response to the trend. 
 
The American Association of Poison Control Centers said it fielded 86 cases from across the country in just the first three weeks of 2018 of teenagers intentionally exposing themselves to the detergent. 
 
“Put down the soap, kids, and get a job,” Lahren said.
