The two appeared together for a one-on-one session at Politicon, which calls itself an “unconventional political convention," in Pasadena, California. It is in its third year. With diverging political views, the pair were virtually guaranteed to debate.
And debate they did, on issues as diverse as the president’s attempt to ban transgender Americans from the armed forces via Twitter, the ongoing healthcare conundrum and rapper and one-time beverage mogul 50 Cent.
At one point, Handler hand-waved a mention of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and called President Donald Trump a “baboon.”
“She’s not the president,” Handler said. “She’s not doing anything that affects you. So (expletive) Hillary. We have to deal with this baboon.”
Over the course of the debate, Lahren admitted to continuing to oppose Obamacare despite the fact that the law allows the 24-year-old to stay on her parents’ health insurance in the absence of insurance provided by her employer.
