Chelsea Handler Will Face Off Against Conservative Pundit Tomi Lahren In Debate

Tomi Lahren and Chelsea Handler have a lot in common. They’re both attractive blondes, they both found fame at the helm of their own talk show, and they’ve both been publicly criticized for making comments that many deemed inappropriate.

And then there are the differences between them.

The fiery liberal and controversial conservative couldn’t be further apart when it comes to politics and, at the end of this month, America will finally get the head-to-head battle we deserve. The Daily Beast reports that Lahren and Handler will be facing off at Politicon, a political convention that takes place in Pasadena, California, at the end of this month.

In anticipation of the event, Lahren has been tweeting out a series of battle cries that promise to leave Handler in tears at the end of the debate.

Handler hasn’t yet mentioned the debate on her own Twitter platform, instead choosing to remain true to her primary game: dragging Donald Trump’s name through the mud until she drops dead.
