Whoopi Goldberg and Tomi Lahren may not agree on much politically, but "The View" moderator defended the conservative host against backlash over her stance on abortion.
The host of The Blaze appeared on the ABC show Friday, where the right wing personality surprised some of the women at the table by stating she was pro-choice. This sparked major backlash from some of her followers over the weekend, as they branded her a hypocrite for crossing the party line.
"Do you have to be on the same side on every single issue of your political party? Aren't you allowed to evolve and grow?" Whoopi asked during Monday's show.
"We're such complicated beings, to fall in line with every partisan topic, it's hard to do," Sara Haines added. "I don't know who falls in line with everything."
"It's interesting. As many of you know, I call myself pro-life or anti-abortion. I'm against divorce. I'm conservative on so many social issues, I'm called a libtard, left leaning and I don't describe myself that way," she explained. "Maybe what we need to do is stay away from all these labels."
"So many conservatives came out against her, they've been dragging her, they've been so terrible to her and that's one of the problems of conservatism," she continued, "there are many faces to it."
Hostin and Jedediah Bila then got into a debate over whether a person could be a constitutional conservative and also pro-choice. Bila said it was possible, while Hostin shot the notion down.
"They were not talking about abortion when they created the constitution, they weren't dealing with it," Goldberg interjected. "The problem for me is, what it does give you is the right to make decisions for yourself as an individual. The constitution protects your individuality. It says you don't have to believe any religion, you don't have to subscribe to anyone else's beliefs. That's why you have these freedoms. I think the constitution is specific to you."
The one thing Bila couldn't defend was why Tomi voted for Donald Trump in the first place.
"My bigger question to her is, if you're a constitutional conservative and you believe in limited government, why did you vote for Donald Trump?" she asked. "He doesn't stand for any of that. He's the big government guy."
Whoopi's explanation: "People weren't listening."
"I'm pro-choice and here's why," Lahren explained on Friday. "I can't sit here and be a hypocrite and say I'm for limited government but I think that the government should decide what women should do with their bodies. I can say, you know what, I am for limited government so stay out of my guns and you can stay out of my body as well."
