Conservative Tomi Lahren, former host at TheBlaze, is set to debate liberal comedian Chelsea Handler in late July of 2017 at Politicon. Politicon is an annual convention held in Pasadena, California filled with various debates, panels, podcasts, and more.
Handler, Tomi’s liberal opponent, is most well-known for hosting her own talks shows. Currently, she is the host of Netflix’s ‘Chelsea’ and she previously hosted ‘Chelsea Lately’ on the E! Network. Since Donald Trump announced he was running for president, she has been very vocal about her hatred towards him and his policies. She consistently bashes Trump on Twitter and previously stated she would leave the country if he were elected, but she does still live in America.
Lahren shared the news about the debate herself by retweeting a Daily Beast article. She confirmed her excitement for the big event by commenting, “Let’s do this.” Later, she also revealed why she is so excited to take on Handler, stating this is for "America-loving Trump supporters".
Following the big announcement, she called out Chelsea Handler by posting tweets with the hashtag, #TomiChelseaDebateQuestions (see below). As of July 6th, 2017, Handler has not yet responded to Lahren’s tweets.
