Noah called out The Blaze for its hypocrisy towards Lahren.
Trevor Noah and Tomi Lahren will probably never be best friends after their heated discussion on The Daily Show back in December, but the Comedy Central anchor came to Lahren’s defense over her suspension from TheBlaze.
“Honestly, this is not cool,” Noah told his Daily Show audience on Tuesday night. “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?” That’s not cool.”
Lahren, a conservative personality for Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze network, recently appeared on The View and revealed she’s pro-choice on the issue of women’s reproductive rights. “I’m someone that’s for limited government, 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,” she said.

Shortly after the clip aired, she was suspended from her position, according to The Washington Post. Lahren herself seemed to confirm the news on Twitter, mentioning “‘me’ time.”
“I was offended by the hypocrisy,” Noah continued in his segment. “I was so offended that I wanted to protest it.” However, he didn’t leave Lahren completely unscathed. In reference to their debate over Black Lives Matter, he added, “Unfortunately, there’s no type of black people protest that Tomi is comfortable with, so I guess we should just move on.”
