Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren has reportedly been “banned permanently” from The Blaze. Lahren was suspended last week after flip-flopping on abortion and declaring herself pro- choice. Glenn Beck, who founded the conservative network, is “reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi,” one source says. Now, sources close to Glenn Beck’s network say that she has been banned permanently blonde anchor in hopes of re-branding himself as a “leading conservative thinker” who can unify the country.
“Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites,” one insider told the New York Post.
“He’s trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country… He just couldn’t sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there’s no way for
conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice.”
Another insider said that Beck, who recently joined forces with Samantha Bee to apologize for years of being a divisive douchebag, is desperate to increase the subscribers to his site’s dwindling fan base. TheBlaze’s paying subscribers are kept secret, but the site attracted 29 million unique visitors per month in 2014. Now, that traffic is down to only 8.8 million uniques in February 2017.
She also said that its hypocritical for conservatives to be in favor of limited government while opposing abortion.
“I am someone that’s for limited government,” she said. “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 should do with their bodies.”
Shortly after the report surfaced on Sunday, Ms Lahren seemed to issue a vague response on Twitter. “Never do the envy, jealousy and insecure stuff,” she wrote. “Be the hustler, the well-wisher, the go-getter.”
Lahren’s contract was said to be up in September. She had previously been rumored to be going to Fox News following the departure of Megyn Kelly.
