She’s back! (Could it be she hasn’t made up her mind? Or does she just like the publicity?)
While she bills her video series on Fox News Insider as “Final Thoughts,” Tomi Lahren apparently hasn’t finished thinking about West Hollywood and its status as a “sanctuary city.”
Lahren was back on WeHo’s Santa Monica Boulevard this afternoon for another round of interviews with people on the sidewalk. That’s after having questioned a handful last Sunday afternoon. Her interviews then in WeHo and on and around Venice’s boardwalk showed that not many in either place agreed with Lahren’s defense of the Trump administration’s opposition to local governments declaring they will not cooperate with federal efforts to detain and deport undocumented immigrants who have not committed serious crimes.
Lahren, 25, a South Dakota native who now lives in Los Angeles, on Wednesday shared what she learned in a conversation with Sean Hannity, the conservative commentator. “A lot of Californians are into the whole ‘peace, love and welcome everyone’ — unless you’re Tomi Lahren or Fox News,” she said.
“It’s a very liberal area. It’s what they call the epicenter of the Resistance, and they certainly know who I was, and there were some words that I can’t repeat on national television that they were screaming at me.”
This time Lahren was welcomed back after she tweeted earlier in the day that she was “heading back to WeHo today. Let’s chat. See you soon.”
And then said @TomiLahren: “So you hate Fox News. Why? Come talk to me in West Hollywood in 30 mins.”
The City of West Hollywood (@WeHoCity), arguably the most liberal city in Southern California (although that’s something Santa Monica might contest), welcomed Lahren with its own tweet:
“Yes, let’s! We’re here if you want us, girl. (Srsly… if you need a City rep, let us know. We’d LOVE to chat!)”
That meeting happened. “Nice meeting you Tomi!” tweeted Lisa Belsanti, West Hollywood’s director of communications. ”Enjoy @WeHoCity — epicenter of the #resistance. We cherish the First Amendment and your right to be a provocateur. Disagree with you 100% on sanctuary cities and our glorious sanctuary state but welcome you nonetheless.”
Lahren’s latest round of interviews with WeHoans is likely to air on a coming episode of Fox News Insider.
