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.

We've all felt lonely at some point in our lives. It's a human experience as universal as happiness, sadness or even hunger. But there's been a growing trend of studies and other evidence suggesting that Americans, and people in general, are feeling more lonely than ever.

It's easy to blame technology and the way our increasingly online lives have further isolated us from "real" human interactions. The Internet once held seemingly limitless promise for bringing us together but seems to be doing just the opposite.

Except that's apparently not true at all. A major study from Cigna on loneliness found that feelings of isolation and loneliness are on the rise amongst Americans but the numbers are nearly identical amongst those who use social media and those who don't. Perhaps more importantly, the study found five common traits amongst those who don't feel lonely.

He photographed Nazi atrocities and buried the negatives. The unearthed images are unforgettable.

He risked his life to leave a "historical record of our martyrdom."

In September 1939, the Nazis invaded Poland. By April 1940, the gates closed on the Lodz Ghetto, the second largest in the country after Warsaw.

Throughout the war, over 210,000 people would be imprisoned in Lodz.

Among those held captive was Henryk Ross. He was a Jewish sports photographer before the Nazi invasion and worked for the the ghetto's Department of Statistics during the war. As part of his official job, he took identification photos of the prisoners and propaganda shots of Lodz' textile and leather factories.

Joey Grundl, a pizza delivery driver for a Domino's Pizza in Waldo, Wisconsin, is being hailed as a hero for noticing a kidnapped woman's subtle cry for help.

The delivery man was sent to a woman's house to deliver a pie when her ex-boyfriend, Dean Hoffman, opened the door. Grundl looked over his shoulder and saw a middle-aged woman with a black eye standing behind Hoffman. She appeared to be mouthing the words: "Call the police."

"I gave him his pizza and then I noticed behind him was his girlfriend," Grundl told WITI Milwaukee. "She pointed to a black eye that was quite visible. She mouthed the words, 'Call the police.'"

A post on the Murdered by Words subreddit is going viral for the perfect way a poster shut down a knee-jerk "double-standard!" claim.

It began when a Redditor posted a 2015 Buzzfeed article story about a single dad who took cosmetology lessons to learn how to do his daughter's hair.

Most people would see the story as something positive. A dad goes out of his way to learn a skill that makes his daughter look fabulous.
