Conservative 'Commentator' Tomi Lahren Appears To Have Moved To L.A.
Great news, Los Angeles! It appears that young American patriot and noted Terrible Person Tomi Lahren has maybe relocated right here, to the world's greatest city. At least it sure looks that way on social media.
Lahren, who is known for her attacks on Colin Kaepernick, the Black Lives Matter movement, refugees, MTV, Beyoncé, the Women's March, and human decency, joined Fox News in August after being fired from Glenn Beck's TheBlaze in April.
Our first fears that the snowflake-hating firebrand might have Manifest Destiny-ed her way out here came last night, when a Los Angeles-based friend forwarded us screenshots from her verified Bumble profile. Our hopes that she had merely been swiping while visiting were dashed when we watched her Instagram story, which features a short video of her on a swing set in the sun, saying, "Just on a swing set, thinking about Laura and John Burk, and how much they would enjoy Southern California, and maybe they should come visit me." Please note her Daily Show hat, which also appears on her Bumble profile.
Six days earlier, Lahren had posted a picture of herself in front of what appears to be a packed storage locker, with a caption about moving, and being ready to leave Texas:
We have no definitive proof that Lahren now lives in Los Angeles. We pray that our theory is wildly off base. However, when taken together, the fact that Lahren has just packed up her things from Texas, and that she is now suggesting friends visit her in Southern California certainly suggests that she may now be living in Southern California.
The strongest evidence that Lahren might now be calling L.A. home can be found on her oft-controversial Twitter page, where her current location now reads as Los Angeles:
If true, home won't be the only thing Lahren has called Los Angeles. Remember this tweet?
Lahren's appeal, according to Politico, "comes both from being outrageously outspoken—taking hard-line positions with little or no areas of gray on matters of race, immigration and national security—and from speaking in a vernacular you’d sooner associate with reality TV than political talk shows." We, however, are still searching for any possible glimmer of appeal.
Please, for the love of all that is holy, send all Lahren sightings to email@example.com.
