At only 24 years old, Tomi Lahren has made a name for herself as the host of her political talk show “Tomi” on TheBlaze. Recently, she seems to be a rolling stone with no intentions of gathering moss.
Among many other television cameos, she has appeared on Fox News's “The Sean Hannity Show.”
Lahren also gave a fiery interview with host Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show.”
The young firecracker's aggressive, no-holds-barred commentating style seemed to be a major part of her appeal.
However, the same brazenness that got her national attention may be a source of contention among her coworkers.
During an interview on “The View,” Lahren explained that she is a “pro-choice” conservative.
This seemed to come as a shock for the co-hosts, so Lahren went on to explain her reasoning. She said:
“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.”
As often happens with Lahren's comments, this, too, was met with mixed reactions. Some praised her for speaking her mind even if it wouldn't be popular among her political party.
However, it seemed some of her loudest critics were within her own office and condemned her on multiple levels.
TheBlaze political reporter Kaitlyn Schallhorn tweeted:
In response to a tweet of Lahren's, in which she said she will always “speak my truth,” TheBlaze reporter Kate Scanlon tweeted:
Reporters aren't the only ones with whom Lahren's comments didn't sit right. TheBlaze founder Glenn Beck slammed the 24-year-old for her seemingly mistaken use of the word “constitutional” instead of “constitutionalist.” He tweeted:
Despite being one of the most prominent names on the network, Lahren's time at TheBlaze may be up, according to a report by The Daily Caller.
Her contract is reportedly due to end in September, but an anonymous source told the news outlet that her position at the company until then is “up in the air.”
The anonymous source claimed that even before her interview on “The View,” her chances of having her contract extended were “pretty near zero.”
Managing editor of TheBlaze, Leon Wolf told The Daily Caller that he had “no comment” about Lahren's future employment at the network.
However, it seems fairly likely that if she leaves by force or her own accord, you won't find Lahren on the streets with a “will give 'Final Thoughts' for food,” sign.
Fox News recently lost Greta Van Susteren and Megyn Kelly to other networks, and Lahren has been making increasingly more appearances on the network. Redstate speculated that she may be being primed to take over for her intelligent, blonde predecessors.
The Daily Caller's anonymous source also said that he thought she was “likely talking to other people,” and even claimed those “people” may be willing to buy out the rest of her contract.
