Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren first went viral as a part of the right-leaning One America News Network to Glenn Beck’s The Blaze. However, after Beck called her out on Twitter, it appears her show is suspended and she’s on her way out at the network.
A report from conservative blog the Daily Caller, founded by Tucker Carlson, says that Lahren’s show has been suspended for at least a week. This follows a segment on Beck’s own show where he aired clips of Lahren seemingly flip-flopping on being pro-choice. She called libertarians and conservatives “hypocrites” for their pro-life stance, saying that a woman’s body is one of the things she’d like the government not to control.
I would disagree that you’re a hypocrite if you want limited government and yet you want the government to protect life of the unborn. It’s very, very clear. But it takes intellectual honesty, and it takes a willingness to actually think these things through and to do more than just read Twitter or Facebook to get your news and your political opinions. You actually have to study things — these things out in your mind. Especially at a time period like today.
I have moderate, conservative, and libertarian views. I'm human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker.

The above tweets from Lahren and Beck highlight the apparent behind-the-scenes rift between the two, despite Lahren scoring millions of views online for their program. Beck has long been a vocal Never Trump-er, whereas Lahren seemingly accepts whatever position Trump takes on an issue like other cheerleaders Sean Hannity or his parasitic twin Eric Bolling.
Yet, despite this success, a report in the Caller from this weekend suggested that their sources claimed her contract would not be renewed in six months, despite her success. Lahren has enjoyed viral shares over her videos all over social media, leading to appearances on liberal media strongholds like The Daily Show and The View.
