One of the hottest social media stars to take advantage of the Donald Trump candidacy over the last year has been right-wing firebrand #Tomi Lahren. As her stock rises, Lahren made her way to New York City to appear on "#The View."
Tomi on "The View"
Since the start of the 2016 presidential election, social media's popularity has increased. After #Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the White House, the former host of "The Apprentice" tapped into social media and used Twitter as his number one form of communication. In following in Trump's footsteps, those on the political left and right were able to voice their opinion on various social media platforms. For Tomi Lahren, she was able to gain enough attention to have over 4 million followers on Facebook, while appearing on the Blaze TV five nights a week. Lahren, a strong supporter of Trump, appeared on the March 17 edition of "The View" to discuss the hot topics of the day.
Joining the co-hosts on "The View" was Tomi Lahren who stood by her defense of Donald Trump during the segment. When asked if she thought the president's travel ban was against the United States Constitution, Lahren pushed back. "I don't think it's unconstitutional," she said, pointing out, "it is under his jurisdiction to be able to do this." When co-host Joy Behar asked if Trump "shot himself in the foot" by labeling the travel ban a "Muslim ban," Lahren once again came to the defense of the president.
It's not a 'Muslim ban,'" Tomi Lahren said, while adding, "unless all the Muslims in the world packed themselves in six countries, it's not a 'Muslim ban.'" The host of "Final Thoughts" then cited the infamous quote by Barack Obama in regards to health care about wanting to keep your insurance under Obamacare, which annoyed Behar to the point she replied, "oh, one thing that he said and they keep bringing it up everyday, meanwhile, Trump says something crazy everyday."
Tomi Lahren also went on to claim that she has "made a living out of being very honest," before hitting back against the threat of radical Islamic terrorism. While the panel on "The View" and Lahren mostly disagreed, they did come to common ground on abortion, where the conservative social media star said she was pro-choice.
