Trevor Noah may have had a confrontational interview with the conservative host Tomi Lahren, but he came out in defense of her on Tuesday after she was temporarily suspended by TheBlaze, the outlet owned by Glenn Beck.
Lahren was suspended after saying on “The View” last week that she favored abortion rights, declaring that she’s “pro-choice.” To the “Daily Show” host, TheBlaze’s reasoning seemed suspect.
“If you’re a conservative network that preaches day in and day out ‘You politically correct snowflakes get offended too easily when anyone says something you disagree with,’ and then Tomi comes out and speaks her truth, says that she’s pro-choice, and then suddenly her bosses go, ‘Oh, you like choices? Well how about you choose a new job?'” Noah said. “That’s not cool. I was offended by the hypocrisy.”
Noah said that he wanted to protest the network’s decision, but “unfortunately, there’s no type of black-people protest that Tomi is comfortable with.”
