Liberal comedian Chelsea Handler will reportedly debate conservative pundit Tomi Lahren at Politicon later this month in California.

The Daily Beast reports that the political foes will go toe to toe during the third annual political convention, which will be held July 29-30 in Pasadena. Ms. Handler and CNN’s Jake Tapper will also hold a discussion, the report said.

Ms. Handler has been an outspoken critic of President Trump and his family, taking shots at first lady Melania, Ivanka, and even Eric and Lara’s unborn child. The “Chelsea” host threatened to move out of the country if Mr. Trump won the election, only to change her mind and promise to “keep fighting” here in the U.S. She went on to lead the anti-Trump Women’s March at Sundance in January.

“We experienced a huge setback, but the only thing to do when you have been set back is to step forward, continue to fight and use your voice,” she said at the time.

Ms. Lahren, who now works in communications for the pro-Trump advocacy group Great America Alliance following her messy separation from Glenn Beck’s media network The Blaze, appeared excited about the upcoming debate with Ms. Handler.

“Let’s do this,” she tweeted to her 740,000 followers Wednesday afternoon, linking to The Daily Beast article.
