Tomi Lahren doubles down on Roe v. Wade rant, but she’s outsmarted by wiser conservatives

After wading in hip-deep on perhaps the most polarizing of all social issues, and getting blasted for it, Tomi Lahren doubled down via Twitter on her rant telling conservatives not to push for the repeal of Roe v. Wade.  She cautioned them, again,  to… stay out of social issues.

“We win by staying out of social issues,” Lahren had the audacity to suggest, even though she was effectively saying do as I say, not as I do.

But then, the conservative political commentator, as Lahren is billed, has a history of being inconsistent, as seen when she ripped pro-abortion advocates as “baby killers” during her early days as a contributor at Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, only to announce in her final year that she’s “pro-choice.”

Lahren, who signed up for a cameo role in the upcoming pro-life film “Roe v. Wade,” finds herself embroiled in controversy after delivering a stunning rant last week on Fox News urging conservatives to not push for the repeal of Roe v. Wade.

Social media wasn’t about to let Lahren get away with the apparent hypocrisy, as seen when Ben Domenech, founder and publisher of The Federalist, sarcastically noted how she “sticks to fiscal issues.”

“Tomi sticks to fiscal issues like free speech, illegal immigration, guns, higher ed, media bias, Kanye West, and whether Colin Kaepernick stands for the national anthem,” Domenech tweeted.

Matthew Schmitz, a columnist at The Catholic Herald, reminded Lahren that Trump voters see social issues as important in shaping the Supreme Court.


As she’s been known to do, Lahren set off a firestorm of reactions to what constitutes a winning platform for conservatives — few of which include taking advice from her as part of a “winning” strategy.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
