Tomi Lahren's is turning out to be quite the trailblazer for modern conservatism after outing herself as pro-choice.
For a second, it seemed like Glenn Beck's protégée was just going to get a conservative slap on the wrist for uttering such abominable remarks.
But it turns out Lahren did in fact burn quite a few bridges — and has officially been banned from appearing on Bleck's multiplatform network, TheBlaze!
According to Page Six, the conservative commentator — who was suspended last week after flip-flopping her stance on abortion — will no longer be appearing on Beck's digital network.
Insiders say Beck decided to fire the controversial blonde anchor in hopes of re-branding himself as a "leading conservative thinker" who can unify the country — and Lahren calling out the hypocrisy of pro-life conservatives is far from on brand.
"Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites. He's trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country. He just couldn't sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there's no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice."
Another insider said that Beck, who recently joined forces with Samantha Bee to apologize for years of being a divisive douchebag, is desperate to increase the subscribers to his site's dwindling fan base.
The insider said:
"Beck's trying to reinvent himself. But he's burned too many bridges."
TheBlaze's paying subscribers are kept secret, but the site attracted 29 million unique visitors per month in 2014. Now, that traffic is down to only 8.8 million uniques in February 2017.
We hate to say it, but firing a bombastic 24-year-old like Tomi probably won't help Beck's failing website.
As for the controversial (but somewhat progressive!) commentator, we have a feeling we'll see her again real soon… most likely on Fox News.
