Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren has filed suit against Glenn Beck and The Blaze for wrongful termination, which Lahren claims resulted solely from her expression of pro-choice views during her appearance on ABC's The View last month. Both Beck and The Blaze did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

  • Other juicy bits: Lahren alleges that The Blaze wrongfully controls her personal Facebook page with over 4 million followers. Additionally, after her termination, she claims that Beck and others engaged in a public smear campaign — and, more privately, placed a caution tape X over her dressing room door at The Blaze.
  • Her requests: In addition to attorneys' fees, Lahren wants a temporary restraining order that would allow her to continue her media presence, speak freely about her termination and lawsuit, regain full access to her social media pages, and prevent Beck and The Blaze from destroying any documents related to her suit.

Finally, a real debate

A more disciplined President Trump held back from the rowdy interruptions at tonight's debate in Nashville, while making some assertions so outlandish that Joe Biden chuckled and even closed his eyes.

  • A Trump campaign adviser told Axios: "He finally listened." 

The result: A real debate.

Biden to Trump: "I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life"

Former VP Joe Biden pushed back Thursday against allegations from President Trump, saying he had never profited from foreign sources. "Nothing was unethical," Biden told debate moderator Kristen Welker about his son Hunter's work in Ukraine while he was vice president.

Why it matters: Earlier on Thursday, Hunter Biden's former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, released a statement saying Joe Biden's claims that he never discussed overseas business dealings with his son were "false."

Trump claims COVID "will go away," Biden calls his response disqualifying

President Trump repeated baseless claims at the final presidential debate that the coronavirus "will go away" and that the U.S. is "rounding the turn," while Joe Biden argued that any president that has allowed 220,000 Americans to die on his watch should not be re-elected.

Why it matters: The U.S. is now averaging about 59,000 new coronavirus infections a day, and added another 73,000 cases on Thursday, according to the Covid Tracking Project. The country recorded 1,038 deaths due to the virus Thursday, the highest since late September.
