Cenk Uygur Dissects Tomi Lahren's 'Blaze' Suspension - and Dings Glenn Beck
Tomi Lahren would like you to believe she was suspended from her nightly show on the Blaze for declaring herself pro-choice. "The Young Turks'" Cenk Uygur isn't so sure.
"Did Tomi Lahren always have that position? Did Tomi Lahren really have any position?" he asked. "Other than, is the whole internet looking at me yet?"
"Apparently Glenn Beck and I share that concern because he took action [Monday]," continued Uygur. Beck, who owns the Blaze, waited until Lahren had defended her remarks via Twitter to weigh in.
I have moderate, conservative, and libertarian views. I'm human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker.— Tomi Lahren (@Tomi Lahren) 1489861659.0
Wait, libertarian views? Help me out on Trumpcare, stimulus, and executive orders. Trump is anything but libertaria… https://t.co/injnsD1nGP— Glenn Beck (@Glenn Beck) 1489983387.0
"Tomi Lahren has been suspended from the Blaze," Uygur revealed. "Because she was pro-choice? Again I'm not convinced she always has been; neither is Beck."
According to the Daily Caller, "Lahren’s inflammatory, often-times angry style has placed her increasingly at odds with coworkers at the Blaze, the Daily Caller has learned, a situation that worsened after she called pro-life conservatives hypocrites."
Beck's hypocrisy was not lost on Uygur.
"I love the Blaze being concerned about inflammatory behavior," he quipped. "Glenn Beck got kicked off Fox News for being inflammatory, so this is the Fox News of Fox News complaining."
