“Please release me, let me go.”
Former on-air commentator Tomi Lahren sounded much like the old Ray Price standard when she discussed her wrongful termination lawsuit that she’d filed against Glenn Beck and TheBlaze on ABC’s “Nightline” Wednesday.

“To my former employer I would just say, ‘Let me go. Let me move on,’” she said. “I’m deeply hurt by what has happened, I’m disappointed in what has happened, but if this is how it is, let’s just part ways.”
Nightline host Byron Pitts asked Lahren why she gets emotional when speaking about her feud.
“This is my job, this is my life,” she said. “Without that I feel lost.”
“It hurts,” Lahren added after saying she was “blindsided.”
Lahren left conservatives outraged when she announced last month on “The View,” another ABC program, that she was pro-choice.
Her fans stood by her after she announced her “Nightline” appearance on social media.

@TomiLahren One way to prove this would’ve been to move on instead of suing Beck.

“I will not lay down and play dead — ever,” Lahren told Pitts.
