Kari Lake is a rock star. We have all seen her gain momentum with her straightforward approach and no-nonsense attitude, and in an interview discussing voting issues on Election Day in Arizona, Lake went full nuclear on the media. Not only did she set the lefty media straight, but she also vowed to fix Arizona’s voting system after her election and addressed what to expect if President Trump asked her to be on his ticket for 2024. Check this out.
Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake spoke with reporters on Tuesday afternoon and she wasted little time setting the record straight after a reporter asked her about potentially being picked to be Donald Trump’s 2024 running mate.
“I’m going to do two terms. I’m going to be your worst frickin’ nightmare for 8 years, and we will reform the media as well. We are going to make you guys into journalists again. So, get ready. It’s going to be a fun 8 years.”

Watching this exchange, one can only get the impression that Lake is going to follow up on her vow in spades. She already has a healthy and justified disdain for the media as she used to be a part of it, but she has exactly zero craps to give who she offends achieving that end.
Lake understands who the media in Arizona is and has no fear in her support of Donald Trump and her disdain for the fake news.
A reporter went on to ask Lake: “Just curious, your attorney had mentioned maybe a possible silver lining with the issues that you will be able to move about town and kind of shake hands and talk to some of the people in line. Could you elaborate on your plans later today.”
“We are going to encourage people to stay in line, we are going to vote and stay in line and the people of Arizona would walk over hot coals and they would walk over broken glass to vote today and I know that they can stand in line for a couple hours if they have to. I know they’ll stand in line for eight hours if they have to. And they will vote and my message to the people of Arizona is do not get out of line until you have cast your vote.
Lake is referring to the earlier voting issues with malfunctioning machines and the alleged fact that most of the machines were located in Republican strongholds in Maricopa County. Her encouragement to stay in line and cast a vote is exactly what the left was hoping NOT to hear. However, it looks as if Arizona residents will not be discouraged or dissuaded from casting votes, even if the technology isn’t working.
Lake has been dealing with threats of political violence and even had a white powder mailed to her headquarters recently, but as the left and the media are learning, you don’t piss Kari Lake off. Arizona should be interesting, but don’t be shocked if Lake gives the media the 8 years of hell she promised.
