Kari Lake, a Republican running for governor of Arizona, has emerged as the party’s rising star in the 2022 midterm elections. She has shown strength, intelligence, and humor above everything else.
In fact, Lake, a seasoned media critic, just used a well-known joke to attack the center-right of the political spectrum. And she did so with skill and comedic effect.
Lake is competing against Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs for the vacant position of Grand Canyon State governor (current Gov. Doug Ducey is term limited from office). According to RealClearPolitics, Lake, who was supported by previous President Donald Trump, is presently ahead of Hobbs by 4.5 points.
Every conservative has heard the joke about the Clintons, or the “Clinton Crime Family,” as talk radio king Rush Limbaugh used to refer to them. The joke claims that those who offend the Clintons frequently and unexplainably pass away.
In response to Hillary’s most recent critique, Lake spread this well-known Clinton meme, according to the Washington Examiner.
In reference to the quip that Clinton’s rivals frequently die, Lake remarked on Fox News last week, “I’m in perfect health, my brakes on my car are in good shape, and I’m not suicidal.”. After mockingly commenting that she was “a little concerned” that Clinton was “badmouthing” her lately, Lake made her comments.
Later, Lake shared the Fox visit video on social media.

Following Clinton’s criticism that Lake appeared to be making light of the incident on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Lake poked fun at the former secretary of state.
According to NBC, Lake stated, “Nancy Pelosi, well, she’s got protection when she’s in D.C. — apparently her house doesn’t have a lot of protection.”
The Arizona candidate then used that statement as a springboard to discuss the security of our children while they are at school.
“If our lawmakers can have protection, if our politicians can have protection, if our athletes, then certainly the most important people in our lives — our children — should have protection,” she added.
When it comes to dealing with the media, Lake has been a shining example, bold in front of the camera, and spot-on with her responses.
More on this story via The Western Journal:
Lake’s meteoric rise hasn’t gone unnoticed. Fox News star Tucker Carlson explained why the media is so frightened of Lake. It’s because she used to be one of them.
“Lake may be the most skillful communicator in American politics right now — but most terrifying of all, she spent 30 years in television news,” Carlson said a week ago on his Fox show.
The GOP candidate was an anchor on KSAZ-TV in Phoenix until she resigned in March 2021.
“So when Kari Lake says the media are corrupt, she’s not guessing. She lived right in the middle of it for decades,” Carlson added. CONTINUE READING…
