Tomi Lahren is a 24-year-old conservative firebrand. She has risen to stardom in recent years by producing political and cultural commentary that is biting and aggressive. Her social media accounts boast upwards of 4 million followers and you have likely seen one of her viral “final thoughts” monologues from the program, Tomi, which she has hosted for TheBlaze since November, 2015. Lahren’s message has found a receptive audience among millions of right-leaning Americans who have embraced her as a young and fierce conservative media icon. But in the last few days, she has faced intense scrutiny from many supporters for controversial remarks she made concerning abortion during an appearance on The View.
