Tomi Lahren, the conservative commentator who was blossoming into a rockstar among her base, has been suspended from her job at “The Blaze” following comments made on “The View” Friday morning.
Lahren shocked many by sharing her stance that she is pro-choice, which instantly led to an onslaught of criticism.
People immediately turned their backs on Lahren following the comments, despite those same people spending the last few months mocking liberals for being “snowflakes” and tossing out insults or cowering when someone would disagree with them.
“Lahren’s show is suspended for effect for at least one week starting Monday, according to TheDC’s sources,” reported The Daily Caller.
So, yeah. The conservatives who have bashed Democrats for hostility over any disagreement have now turned their back on one of conservative media’s stars over one simple difference in stance.
Lahren’s comments on “The View” were as follows:
“I am pro-choice, and here’s why,” Lahren said. “I am someone that loves the Constitution, I am someone that’s for limited government, so I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think that the government should decide what women do with their bodies. I can sit here and say that as a Republican, and I can say, ‘You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns and you can stay out of my body as well.’”
The Daily Caller noted Lahren and her boss, Glenn Beck, had flaring tensions in recent weeks.
“Tensions were high between Lahren and her coworkers at The Blaze even before she called pro-life conservatives hypocrites in an appearance on ABC’s ‘The View’ on Friday,” the report stated.
Lahren’s show will not be produced this week and there is belief she could leave the network before her contract is up in September.
But considering the huge following Lahren has generated on social media, we think she’ll be just fine.
And she seems to be handling the news pretty well.
