I can’t tell you how many times I have received an email stating, “You need to get super conservative, Tomi Lahren to join your network.” I never respond, and that’s because I don’t see the appeal of Ms. Lahren.
As a rule, I don’t like to ridicule other members of the conservative media unless they are liars, intentionally rude, fight pickers, or purposely misleading in their reporting.
That said, I’ve never voiced my opinions about her, so this is a first for me. Let me clearly say that I fully respect her ability to grow an online audience — she now has more than 4 million fans on Facebook. Meanwhile, I am at 1,000,000. So yes, I fully recognize she’s kicking my butt in that category, but then again she has a different model for growing her audience.
I’ve seen some of her interviews, and I’ve watched some of her video clips, and what I see is a “screamer.”
I see someone who wants to pick a fight instead of finding a solution. There’s a lot of money to be made in picking fights with the Left. I don’t do it as a practice, but I understand why other conservative commentators navigate in that direction on a daily basis.
Maybe it’s her age, or maybe I am 100% wrong about her? Maybe I just do not understand her style. Either way, I’ve never been a fan.
Today, I feel sort of vindicated about my stance after watching her on the liberal leaning TV show called, ‘The View.” Lahren, who describes herself as a hardcore conservative, told The View on Friday that she is pro-choice. That doesn’t sound “super conservative” to me. That sounds uber-liberal.
After confirming she is pro-choice, Tomi went on to say, “I am for limited government. So stay out of my guns, and stay out of my body as well.”
After the liberals on The View applauded her stance, they encouraged her to share her pro-choice view with Republican women. Lahren responded, “I do every day.”
Something tells me less women will be watching Tomi stating tomorrow. Meanwhile, I’ll be sitting over here saying, “I told you so.”
