Pro-choice Tomi Lahren: suspended and a hypocrite


She may be pretty but she's also pretty lame. Tomi Lahren has been suspended from The Blaze, where she works as a so-called conservative anchor. The Daily Caller was first to report the story.

Lahren caused a cow-chip storm when she revealed on The View that she is pro-choice when it comes to killing babies inside the womb. 

It isn't yet known if this was the reason for her suspension, but it's a really good reason to assess her actual political ideology and her understanding of conservatism. 

Right-leaning talk-show hosts and conservative pundits lashed out at the little blonde cutie, including Glenn Beck, the network founder of The Blaze. 

Beck promised to address the situation on his radio show Monday but before it was to happen it was learned by the Daily Caller that Lahren would not be returning to her time slot until next week at the earliest.

It was reported that there was tension between her and some of her colleagues, including head-lining hosts. Lahren is no stranger to controversial statements and no stranger to flip-flopping when it suits her or when she forgets what she'd already stated on a position.

She's about as conservative as Bernie Sanders.

Here's what she said on The View
"I'm pro choice, and here's why. I am a constitutional, y'know, someone that loves the Constitution. I'm 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 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 audience, equipped with a 105 IQ collectively, applauded like trained monkeys. 

The issue of abortion has nothing to do with limited government--she conflated the two and was playing to the choir.

When it comes to the abortion issue, the fake conservative flip-flopped like a freshly caught trout at the edge of a stream. 

In an article by Red State, a video shows her on her show, "Final Thoughts" in a segment where she went full-throttle after Lena Dunham who had stated on her podcast that she wished she had an abortion. Lahren's response was a lot different back then: 
"This woman, and I use the term loosely, single-handedly kills legitimacy of the modern-day feminist movement every time she speaks . . . does she realize how damaging she is to her own narrative? Think about it: the 'pro-choicers' are supposed to be about rare and safe abortions. That's how they avoid sounding like straight-up baby killers . . . then we have Lena freaking Dunham out there wishing she could have murdered a fetus. Wishing for the option to kill your child doesn't exactly say much about the cause, her character, or the pro-choice movement. . . "
Lahren probably forgot that anything you say in the media is going to be recorded and your words may come back to haunt you. Her words: "Wishing for the option to kill your child doesn't exactly say much about the cause, her character, or the pro-choice movement." 

But that was then.

There's talk that Lahren wants to move up in the conservative world, and even Sean Hannity thinks she's the grooviest thing since LP records. President Trump reportedly called to congratulate her after she defended him on Hannity's show.

Perhaps Mr. Trump will hire her for her support of him against the "fake news" media. That sounds like her plan.
