At only 24 years old, Tomi Lahren made a name for herself as the host of her political talk show “Tomi” on TheBlaze. Recently, she seems to be a rolling stone without any intention of gathering moss.
Among several other television cameos, she has appeared on Fox News’s “The Sean Hannity Show.”
Lahren also had a rather intense interview with host Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show.”
On Saturday, she was on Fox News’s “Watters’ World,” which was also the same night host Jesse Watters debuted his interview with President Donald Trump.
Lahren’s commentating style seemed to be a large part of her appeal.
However, that same brazenness that attributed to her national attention may be a source of contention among 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.”
This was met with mixed reactions. Some praised her for her opinion, especially knowing 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:
Even Hillary Clinton didn't call pro-life conservatives hypocrites.

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:
Rule another label out. I am NOT a "constitutional". I believe in LIFE, liberty and property. Just an old fashioned "constitutionalist."

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 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 likely that if she leaves by force or her own accord, you won’t find her out of a job very long.
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.
