PHOENIX, AZ — Kari Lake, an Arizona Republican governor candidate endorsed by former President Donald Trump seemed very upset when a Fox News anchor asked her during a television interview Monday about a story that allegedly associated her with drag queens.
After discussing Lake’s claims that the 2020 presidential election… “fraudulent” and that current president Joe Biden was… “illegal” — allegations yet to be proven in court — Fox host Bret Baier responded by playing a video clip from the House Jan. 6 committee last week, where Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers testified that he felt that the elections had not been rigged.
“He’s a Republican,” Baier said. “He is a Trump supporter. And that’s what he said.”
Lake rejected Bowers’ testimony and referred to him by the acronym for the phrase “ “Republican in name only.”

“He’s a RINO,” she said. “And hopefully he will be defeated. He is an absolute RINO.”
After Baier stated that more than 70 lawsuits had failed to yield any evidence of widespread voter fraud, Lake insisted that: “we now have proof” that it has been tampered with in Biden’s favour.
But at that point in the interview, Baier turned to a story from last week in which Phoenix drag queen Rick Stevens claimed that Lake had been a regular at a club he performed at, and that the journalist turned politician even personally hired him for it. her birthday to do his drag act at her house.
Stevens went on to provide photos of himself posing with Lake, claiming that her current criticism of drag queens is simply giving in to her political base.
“She’s friends with drag queens,” Stevens claimed. “She had her child in front of a drag queen. I dragged her home for her friends and family. She is not threatened by them. She would come to shows constantly. To make me the bogeyman of political gain was just too much.”
Lake objected to Baier questioning her about Stevens’ story, saying she was exploring legal options against the drag queen and that it was more important to talk about allegations that the 2020 election would “stolen.”
“I’m really shocked,” she said. “I’m actually appalled that Fox News would take on such a defamatory story – and we’re taking legal action against this drag queen – I’m shocked that you bring that up when you’re not talking about our stolen election.”
Baier disputed Lake, replying that: “We just had three questions about this.”
Later in the interview, she reiterated her distaste for Baier’s way of questioning and what she perceived to be his lack of attention to her claims of voter fraud, insinuating that the Fox anchor’s hands may be tied. She also referred to “2,000 mules,” a film by Dinesh D’Souza investigating the alleged large-scale harvesting of ballots during the 2020 presidential election.
“I am very disappointed in Fox. I thought you were a little better than CNN,” Lake said. “I think you’ll want to ask” [about alleged election fraud]but you don’t want to ask for 2,000 mules.”
Lake was also critical of Baier for not asking for it “all the hard questions” last week when he interviewed her main opponent, Karrin Taylor Robson, an allegation Baier denied.
After her interview, Lake took to Twitter and posted a video clip of her interview with Baier.
WATCH what happens when a Mama Bear takes down a fake news bearer,” she tweeted. “The corrupt media REFUSES to talk about the greatest story of our lives: a STOLEN election. Instead, they try to divert our attention to meaningless stories… I will never allow them.’
