'I represent middle America': Tomi Lahren explains her brand on 'The View'

Tomi Lahren President Trump Called to Thank Me for ‘Fair Coverage’More

Tomi Lahren is moving on to bigger and better things - she is set to leave Glenn Beck's The Blaze and could potentially be the new Megyn Kelly on Fox News.

Tomi Lahren on "The View". "I am someone that loves the constitution and someone for limited government, so I can't stand here and be a hypocrite and say I am for limited government but tell women what to do with their bodies".

You may think folks like Lahren-who says she is personally against abortion, even though simultaneously pro-choice-are wrong, and that abortion is always the gravest of transgressions or never so, but it's erroneous and unfair to brush aside their beliefs as simple stupidity, hypocrisy, opportunism, or cowardice.

"I would disagree that you're a hypocrite if you want limited government, and yet you want the government to protect life of the unborn", Beck said.

The often controversial Tomi Lahren of TheBlaze joined the women of ABC's "The View" on Friday.

While Lahren did not call out anyone in particular, she stuck by her words following her "The View" appearance.

Trump Admin Boycotts UN Human Rights Council Over Anti-Israel Stance
Human Rights Council that focuses on Palestine and other Arab occupied territories, saying it is biased against Israel. The State Department says the United States is boycotting a session at the U.N.

Lahren was also slammed by The Reagan Battalion, an anonymous conservative group on Twitter that gained notoriety after posting footage last month of the right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos appearing to condone sexual relationships between "younger boys and older men".

Lahren's comments drew criticism, as those who oppose abortion said it was not possible for someone to be conservative while also being pro-choice, according to The Washington Post.

"It takes intellectual honesty and it takes a willingness to actually think these things through, rather than just read Twitter or Facebook to get your news or political opinions", Beck said on his show. "The Blaze can not about me, me, me, me", said Beck. "Media should not be about me, me, me, me".

By late morning, with Beck still on the air, Lahren offered up one cryptic observation to her more than 665,000 followers.

"Listen, I am not glorifying abortion".
