Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren renewed her criticism of former first lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday, disputing her claim that America “had a great president.”

“By what measure was her husband a better president than the current president? Because not in economic growth, not in border security and enforcement, not in diplomatic relations, not in making the United States and America first and strong on the international and national stage once again. I don’t know what she’s looking at,” Lahren said on “Fox & Friends.”

They didn’t do it in 2016, they couldn’t show up for Hillary, they couldn’t get people out in that election, but now somehow, we’re supposed to follow Michelle and Barack Obama and that’s going to save the Democratic Party? Eh, I don’t think so,” she added.

Former President Obama has been hitting the campaign trail for Democratic candidates ahead of the midterms, while Michelle Obama is working with groups to get out the vote.

The comments mirror those Lahren made yesterday on Twitter.

Michelle Obama appeared at a get-out-the-vote rally in Las Vegas on Sunday, where she slammed the current political environment.

“Here’s what we have to do,” she said at the “When We All Vote” rally. “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. We saw that happen. We experienced that. We had a great president.”

“But every couple years folks sat out and said ‘well, I did my part, I voted once, I’m done, I’m out,’ ” she added. “And I’m just telling you that democracy doesn’t work that way.”
