Trevor Noah Shows Support For Ostracized Conservative Tomi Lahren In His Own Scathing Way

In two quick statements, he supports her and burns her. It’s kinda sweet

As we witnessed during her awkward appearance on The Daily Show, millennial conservative mouthpiece Tomi Lahren might not have much in common with the show’s viewership or with host Trevor Noah, but the two managed to keep things quite civil during what could have been a very contentious exchange. After the show, Tomi was very gracious in thanking Trevor for the discussion, and he returned the courtesy.

Today, Tomi is left questioning where her conservative support is after getting summarily suspended by her network, The Blaze, after revealing a pro-choice stance while on The View. During her appearance, she remarked:

“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.”

The maligned conservative talking head has earned the begrudging respect of some liberals simply by refusing to toe the Republican party line on every issue. Her dissent on this one issue is a barometer of how draconian conservative allegiances have become.

Trevor Noah was quick to offer all at once measured support for Lahren’s statement and a take down of the conservative reaction to her seemingly pro-choice sentiment. Noah spoke to this intolerance by offering, “Tomi comes out and speaks her truth, says that she’s pro-choice, and then suddenly her bosses go, ‘Oh, you like choices? How about you choose a new job?’

Noah, feeling the need to (at the very least) ding Tomi for her prior criticism of Black Lives Matter, offered up a supplemental statement that he wouldn't be going to protest for her or anything because, “Unfortunately, there’s no type of black-people protest that Tomi is comfortable with.”

Here’s the clip:

That might be true, but Trevor is willing to put on rose-colored glasses for her recent show of conviction, however slight it may be in the scheme of her worldview.

Tomi was at once was gracious about the dig and appreciative of Noah’s kind words, posting on Twitter:

As warped as it is, this may be the closest thing to a conservative-liberal romance that we have in today’s media.

Chances are, you vehemently disagree with either Trevor or Tomi, but their decency towards one another, if not the world at large, is somewhat endearing.

Former Secretary of State, first lady, and winner of the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton, sat own for an epic, two-and-a--half hour interview with Howard Stern on his SiriusXM show Wednesday.

She was there to promote "The Book of Gutsy Women," a book about heroic women co-written with her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.

In the far-reaching conversation, Clinton and the self-proclaimed "King of All Media" and, without a doubt, the best interviewer in America discussed everything from Donald Trump's inauguration to her sexuality.

Offering parental leave for new fathers could help close the gender gap, removing the unfair "motherhood penalty" women receive for taking time off after giving birth. However, a new study finds that parental leave also has a pay gap. Men are less likely to take time off, however, when they do, they're more likely to get paid for it.

A survey of 2,966 men and women conducted by New America found that men are more likely to receive paid parental leave. Over half (52%) of fathers had fully paid parental leave, and 14% of fathers had partially paid parental leave. In comparison, 33% of mothers had fully paid parental leave and 19% had partially paid parental leave.
