The Blaze’s Tomi Lahren recently ventured into the lion’s den to speak with the clucking hens of The View. Unfortunately, she stabbed her fans in the back with just two disgusting words while speaking to the liberal hosts – but it immediately backfired big time.
The incident took place during an interview with the hosts of The View who initially tried to make Tomi look rather embarrassing. Although that idea quickly imploded, it wasn’t long before the two sides actually joined forces in what many are calling a downright betrayal on Tomi’s part.
“I’m pro-choice, and here’s why. 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.”
Of course, this is essentially a complete reversal from her pro-life stance demonstrated from her Conservative platform:

The ignorance here is unbearable – and it only gets worse as she essentially called all conservatives hypocrites for being pro-life. According to her argument, you can’t want less government and then want the government to tell a woman that she can’t murder her unborn child.
Unfortunately for her, that’s not how this works, and her words instantaneously blew up in her face. First came the social media firestorm, which she tried to fight with this ridiculous rebuttal:
I speak my truth. If you don't like it, tough. I will always be honest and stand in my truth.

It seems that “her truth” is a distorted reality when it comes to the topic of abortion. As a result, she received a ribbing courtesy of her fellow co-workers at The Blaze:

Even Hillary Clinton didn't call pro-life conservatives hypocrites.

Lastly came a public bashing on behalf of The Blaze’s owner Glenn Beck – Tomi’s boss:
Rule another label out. I am NOT a "constitutional". I believe in LIFE, liberty and property. Just an old fashioned "constitutionalist."

That’s not even the worst news for the baby-killer supporter as most recent reports indicate that Tomi is likely on her way out at The Blaze. The Daily Caller explains, “Political commentator Tomi Lahren will likely be leaving The Blaze in September if not sooner.”
“The chances of her being brought back [in September] were pretty near zero before yesterday,” a source familiar with the backend operations of The Blaze said. However, her recent remarks essentially hammered the final nails into her coffin, ending her brief time with the news organization.
Even better yet, she may not make it to September because she’s likely “talking to other people who might be willing to buy out her last six months.” However, she probably just ruined her chances. Who’s going to want a conservative commentator who just pissed off the majority of conservatives? For most of us on the right, the consensus is pretty much the same – the sooner she’s gone, the better.
Being in the public spotlight can do funny things to people once they start to become famous. Unfortunately for Tomi, it seems that the political pressure from all sides proved to be too much to handle as she’s apparently lost it, changing her views to pander to the leftist audience while on The View.
You don’t get to say that you’re “for” the Constitution before denying human beings the very right to life itself. I hope she liked being famous while it lasted because she just shot herself in the foot big time. Before long, Tomi will merely be a distant memory.
