WATCH – Kari Lake Blasts Reporter on the 2020 Election Question

Kari Lake, the Republican candidate for governor of Arizona, lambasted a reporter who asked if former President Donald Trump was ‘splitting the country’ ‘by falsely telling people he won’ the presidential election. 2020.

The question came during Lake’s press conference on Thursday after President Joe Biden’s speech, in which he called MAGA Republicans a threat to America.

“You say you feel like Joe Biden is dividing the country, but do you feel like Donald Trump is doing the same by falsely telling people he won this election when he lost it? ” asked the reporter.

“How does this divide the country? Questioning an election where there are clearly problems, is it dividing the country? Since when can we not ask questions about our elections? Lake, a former Fox 10 Phoenix anchor, asked the reporter. She continued:

As a journalist for many years, I was a journalist after 2016 and I remember very well that many people like you asked a lot of questions about the results of the 2016 election. And no one tried to silence you . No one tried to tell Hillary Clinton to shut up. No one tried to stop Kamala Harris as she questioned the legitimacy of these electronic voting machines.

We have freedom of speech in this country and you should appreciate it. You are so-called journalist, you should appreciate it. So I don’t see how asking questions about an election where there are a lot of problems divides a country. What I see as dividing a country is shutting people down, censoring people, canceling people, trying to destroy people’s lives when they have questions.

Lake added that “we’re going to save” the “constitution, and we’re going to bring back free speech, and maybe one day you’ll thank us for that.”

Prior to his clash with the reporter, Lake responded to Biden’s speech, calling it “the most absurd, frankly obscene address.” [she’s] never seen a president give to the American people.

“What I saw was someone trying to divide this country,” adding that Biden “carries a lot of contempt in his heart for a bunch of really good Americans.”

She went on to point out that the America First agenda “is about finding solutions to the problems we’ve had for many, many years, and we saw that with President Trump when he took office. as a foreigner.

“Washington, DC never wants a stranger because it ruins their political agenda when someone comes from outside. And we see that everywhere right now,” she continued. Lake said the American people are deeply unhappy with the Biden administration and are getting involved in politics to create change.

“What is happening is that we are seeing American citizens, moms and dads, running for office, and Joe Biden is threatened by that,” she detailed before targeting her opponent in the general election. , Arizona Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

“And people like Katie Hobbs, career politicians, are threatened by real individuals who come forward, come off the sidelines, come in. And they say, ‘you know what, I’m going to run. I will help my compatriots,” she added.
