The Blaze founder Glenn Beck on Monday took to Twitter to question whether one of the most popular television hosts on his network was intellectually honest.
Beck was criticizing Tomi Lahren, host of TheBlaze TV’s “Tomi.”
Lahren has been criticized in some conservative circles after a Friday appearance on ABC’s “The View” for revealing that she supports abortion rights.
“You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well,” Lahren said.
On Monday, Lahren tweeted that she has “moderate, conservative, and libertarian views.”
“I’m human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker.”

Beck, a former Fox News host, shot back at Lahren on Twitter on Monday.
“Wait, libertarian views? Help me out on Trumpcare, stimulus, and executive orders. Trump is anything but libertarian,” wrote Beck, while adding the hashtag #intellectualhonesty.

The Daily Caller reported last week that Lahren is considering parting ways with the Blaze “in September if not sooner.”
The 24-year-old University of Nevada, Las Vegas graduate has 4.3 million followers on her Facebook page and more than 665,000 followers on Twitter.
