Over at The Daily Caller, Peter Hasson has a piece up saying Lahren will be out at The Blaze by September if not before. Lahren has increasingly been at odds with The Blaze’s founder, Glenn Beck and it may be coming to a boiling point:
Political commentator Tomi Lahren will likely be leaving The Blaze in September if not sooner, The Daily Caller has learned.
Lahren hosts her own show for The Blaze and has garnered national attention for her aggressive rants on politically-charged topics like Black Lives Matter, which frequently went viral on Facebook.
Lahren’s inflammatory, oftentimes angry style has placed her increasingly at odds with coworkers at The Blaze, The Daily Caller has learned, a situation that’s worsened after she called pro-life conservatives hypocrites.
In the same appearance, she said, “I’m pro choice, and here’s why,” Lahren said. “I am a constitutional, y’know, someone that loves the Constitution. I’m someone that’s for limited government. So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government, but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies.”
Her mind-numbingly ignorant views on limited government aside, her comment about being “a constitutional” drew a rebuke from her boss, Glenn Beck. He tweeted the following:
Rule another label out. I am NOT a "constitutional". I believe in LIFE, liberty and property. Just an old fashioned "constitutionalist."

This is not the first time Lahren has been at odds with Beck. Her supportive comments for the flamboyant alt-right provocateur, Milo Yiannopoulos (who has since come under heavy fire for statements about pedophilia and attacking victims of sex abuse) drew indirect criticism from Beck.
Redstate reached out to Managing Editor at The Blaze, Leon Wolf who just replied, “I have no comment.”
There is some speculation Fox News is interested in bringing Lahren aboard, which would make sense given Fox’s overall pro-Trump slant. Lahren recently tweeted:
I'll be on with @jessebwatters tonight! See you then.

A preview of things to come? We shall see.
Update: She may not be the only one leaving.
