After mixed reviews from fans when the Chelsea Handler/Tomi Lahren “debate” was announced, things got heated Saturday night when the two went head-to-head at Politicon.
As expected there was very little, if anything, that the two outspoken women could agree on. But, things started off light as the two attempted to find some common ground on their ideology. “We both like 50 cent,” Tomi quipped, taking a jab at Handler infamous past relationship.
With many red Make America Great Again hats in the crowd, that did not mean the audience was always pro-Tomi. When Handler asked if she had health insurance, Lahren's response of, “Luckily, I am 24, so I am still on my parents' plan.” Unsurprisingly, this drew loud boos from the crowd.
While still on the topic of healthcare, Lahren quickly added, “It's in a death spiral being sabotaged by the president of the United States.” Handler shot back and said, “A decent human being would say, 'let's do whatever we can to make the system that's in place thrive.'”
When the topic of the recent ban on transgender people in the military was brought up, Lahren naturally was all for it.
“For me, reinstating the ban on transgenders in the military was a very positive step. It's not because I have anything against trans people. I don't care what the hell you do, I don't want to pay for it,” she said to a crowd of boos. The boos only continued to grow when she added, the military is “not the place for a social experiment.”
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Handler rebutted, “These people are volunteering to serve our country and it's not even easy for them to walk out the door. What if Donald Trump just stayed home for two weekends? We could pay for it that way.”
As for President Trump's notorious Tweets, Lahren belives that the “positives outweigh the negatives.”
