Trevor Noah Defends Tomi Lahren Over Suspension: ‘I Was Offended By the Hypocrisy’

Trevor Noah Tomi Lahren

While he certainly got a few jabs in, Trevor Noah took time out of Tuesday’s “Daily Show” to defend Tomi Lahren. The conservative commentator made headlines on Monday when she was temporarily suspended from her nightly talk show on Glenn Beck’s the Blaze after she revealed that she is pro-choice.

Noah started by playing a clip of Lahren on “The View” that sparked her suspension.

“I am a constitutional, y’know, someone that loves the Constitution. I’m someone that’s for limited government,” Lahren said. “So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies. 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.”

Noah poked fun at her rhetoric — “She’s like Busta Rhymes reincarnated” — then got serious. “Honestly, this is not cool,” he said.

“If you are a conservative network that preaches day in and day out, ‘You politically correct snowflakes get offended too easily whenever someone says something you disagree with.’ And then Tomi comes out, speaks her truth, says that she’s pro-choice. And then suddenly her bosses go, ‘Oh, you like choices? How about you choose a new job.’ That’s not cool,” Noah ranted.

“I was offended by the hypocrisy,” he said.

But the host couldn’t leave the topic without ending on a punch line. “I was so offended that I wanted to protest. Unfortunately there is no type of black people protest that Tomi is comfortable with, so … I guess we should just move on.”

    There may be 4 people in the entire country that cares what this guy with the very low viewership thinks: him and 3 family members.

      Well then thank goodness he is on globally and his ratings GLOBALLY are actually quite good. Typical american though, can’t see anything past their own nose. Your country is the laughing stock of the world.

        Well, Brian.. the whole “everyone wants to move here” argument might be just about over. lol.

      • brian says:

        Truth Teller, if we are the ‘laughing stock’, why does everyone seem to want to move here? For the comedy? If you are Trevor’s audience, enough said.

    Wallace: My total earnings for first month was very low… Just little over $250, but it was then when I realized this is the real deal and not yet another scam you see all over the internet! There are no words to describe the feeling you get when your first paycheck arrives and what excitement I felt at that moment realizing that making money from home is in fact very possible. After my first month I dedicated more time and put more effort in working this and my second month was already much more better (2nd paycheck I got was for $990)… Now, 6 months later, I am earning just over $2500 a month . I am a little slow with my work and I am not that good with computers and that’s why I think a younger person could be able to earn much much more than this… ▬▬▬▬▬☛O
