Lahren’s last show with OAN was on August 19, 2015, as she moved to Texas to work with TheBlaze. In January 2016, she endorsed Marco Rubio for president in the primary. On November 30, 2016, Lahren appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah for a 26-minute interview.

Tomi Lahren’s Boyfriend List
The conservative political pundit squeezes out time from her busy schedule to date. And we are sure her fans are interested to know who is she dating right now! At the moment, it looks like the infamous commentator is single. Here’s a look into the 24-year-old’s dating life:
At 27, Navy SEAL Jared Christian was the man in Lahren’s life in 2015. In fact, this handsome blond from Utah inspired her viral commentary, in which she called out Barack Obama for leaving American warriors at risk. The two started dating in February 2015 but eventually, the passion fizzled out.
The next man in Tomi Lahren’s life was Chase McNary, the second runner-up on The Bachelorette. Rumors of the two dating began in second half of 2016. Their compatibility was evident in their tweets.

Tomi Lahren’s Recent Controversy
In March 2017, her guest appearance on The View stirred much controversy. On the show, Lahren commented on whether or not a woman should get abortion is entirely her own choice; the government shouldn’t have a say in it.
Her pro-choice views on the show reeked of hypocrisy considering her scathing response to Lena Dunham’s, “I haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had” comment during a taping of her podcast.
Naturally, Lahren’s comments did not go well with her conservative fans, including her (former) boss, Glen Beck. The owner of TheBlaze blasted Lahren and said she wasn’t “intellectually honest.” Later TheBlaze’s managing editor, Leon Wolf, confirmed that Lahren’s show would “not be in production this week.”
In response, Tomi Lahren sued the network for wrongful termination, claiming that she was fired for her pro-choice views expressed on The View. To this, Glenn Beck and TheBlaze filed a countersuit against Lahren, challenging her claim. They asserted that she is still an employee with them; her show is just off the air for now.
In July 2016, Lahren’s tweet comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to the Ku Klux Klan caused mass upheaval. Tens of thousands of people signed a Change.org petition in response, asking for her to be fired from TheBlaze. But the petition was unsuccessful.
