“All she had to do was throw up talking points of MAGA and everyone that bought it. She’s a con, a conspiracy theorist, and not a Government figure,” added the former co-host of “The View”.
Kari Lake will most likely win despite the fact that she is a lifelong progressive libertarian, arguably the closest to Obama in her lifetime. All she had to do was vomit MAGA talking points and everyone bought it. She’s a con man, a conspiracy theorist, and a no-brainer for the Government.
