It has been announced that comedian Chelsea Handler and right-wing political commentator Tomi Lahren will go head-to-head at the Politicon event in Pasadena, California, on July 29. The event is being dubbed “The Battle of the Blondes,” and attendees are, no doubt, excited to see the famous pair debate key issues about politics in the United States.
The duo will tackle topics such as “life, politics, and the future of the country.”
Tomi Lahren has already quipped that those who think Chelsea Handler will beat her also thought Hillary Clinton would win the election.
Chelsea Handler has been a vocal critic of Donald Trump, while Tomi Lahren is well-known for her rants about those who oppose him. Although Lahren is a Millennial herself, she has often blasted her generation for being “triggered snowflakes,” a term many right-wing politicians and supporters use to describe the left.
Tomi Lahren is known for her conservative beliefs but came under fire for admitting that she is actually pro-choice when it comes to women’s reproductive rights. She was summarily axed from her position at the Blaze, and the blonde beauty has decided to take action against her former employer for wrongful termination.
Chelsea Handler has dabbled in politics herself and recently made a Netflix series that explores the issues of racism in the United States. The series touched on several key events in current affairs as well as in America’s historical past, including slavery and appropriating Native American cultures.
On the Fourth of July, Chelsea Handler asked her audience to “do their patriotic duty and speak out” about issues that are dear to her heart. This included a short video stating that the right to criticize the president is not something anyone should take for granted because not every citizen of every country is afforded it.
During the video, Chelsea Handler also slammed Donald Trump for his excessive use of Twitter, as well as the fact that he often Tweets about things he “knows nothing about.” According to Chelsea Handler, he also knows nothing about his own job.
Chelsea Handler also made it known that criticizing the president is the right of every American and stated that Trump used to take pleasure in pointing out the mistakes of Obama during his term. As such, we are all free to speak our minds on who is currently in power.
