Tomi Lahren explains why she supported President Trump despite anti-woman accusations

"I'm pro-choice and here is why", Lahren said on "The View".

"You know what? I'm for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well", Lahren said. "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'".

"See? I told you we wouldn't bite!" said host Sara Haines as she and Paula Faris smiled and held Lahren's arm. "I'm someone that's for limited government", she said.

The 24-year-old conservative darling from South Dakota now hosts "Tomi" on The Blaze where she has a following comparable only to President Donald Trump.

After spending some time on her reach in political circles and views on various current happenings regarding President Trump's administration, Joy Behar asked Lahren halfway through the interview what she thought of Trump's negative rhetoric toward women.

Besides coming under attack from outraged regular conservatives, TheBlaze host found herself under attack from the group of shadowy conservatives who call themselves the "Reagan Battalion" and who got fellow loudmouthed conservative Milo Yiannopoulis booted from his spot at Breitbart News and the Conservative Political Action Conference last month.

Beck insisted on Monday that Lahren's pro-choice position would not disqualify her from a job at The Blaze, the Texas-based multimedia company he founded in 2010. Still, Lahren told The Daily Caller a year ago that "I do have a faith and I do believe in religious freedom". Beck doesn't appear to appreciate Lahren's comments.

Earlier she added: "I have moderate, conservative, and libertarian views".

After discussing President Trump's campaign rhetoric and the travel ban with the cohosts of The View, the conversation switched to women's rights, where Lahren showed a different side. While Hasselbeck leans rightward, she supports abortion rights and same-sex marriage.

Unfortunately, we can't pretend that despite Lahren's stance on this one issue being coherent - and, well, actually pro-woman - she isn't still a shill for the insanity of the GOP.
