Following that exchange, host Sonny Hostin needled Lahren on abortion, noting that 68% of conservatives consider themselves anti-abortion, and yet, Lahren says she’s pro-choice.
“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. I can sit here and say that, as a Republican and I can say, you know what, I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well…”
The audience applauded.
“See? I told you we wouldn’t bite!” said View host Sara Haines as she and Paula Faris grasped for Lahren’s wrists.
