There’s a lot of speculation about who will be the top Republican contender in 2024.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem was hoping to win over Trump’s supporters should he decide not to run again for President.
But Kristi Noem immediately regretted appearing on Fox News when Tucker Carlson asked her this one tough question.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem wants conservatives to believe she’s an America First Republican who, like Donald Trump, is not afraid of the Fake News Media or the Big Tech Giants.
But she recently showed her true beliefs by announcing that she would veto a bill banning biological males from competing in girls sports after coming under enormous pressure from the NCAA, Big Tech, and the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce.
Noem claimed she had to veto the bill because it applied to college athletes and the state would lose if the NCAA sued the state.
But Carlson called out Noem, telling his viewers the real reason why she is planning to veto the bill even though the majority of South Dakotans support it.
“So here you have this bill, which I think all polling shows is popular in your state, I think would be popular nationally, you said you’re excited to sign it,” Carlson stated. “Big business intercedes, NCAA, Chamber of Commerce, and Amazon and tell you not to sign it. And you change your mind. I think a lot of our viewers are wondering you’re thinking on this and how exactly this happened.”
Once again, Noem tried to claim she couldn’t sign the bill because of a guaranteed lawsuit from the NCAA.
“Well, that’s not true, Tucker, and thank you for inviting me to be on the show tonight,” an angry Noem responded.
“I could sign the bill the way that it is today. And then also, but it wouldn’t solve the problem. And that’s the real issue. As I looked at the bill and examined it, and have been discussing with legal scholars for many months on how to protect women’s sports, this bill would only allow the NCAA to bully South Dakota, and it would actually prevent women from being able to participate in collegiate sports. So what I’ve done is I’ve asked the legislature through a style and reform — is ask them to change the bill —”
But Carlson refused to let Noem off the hook, again reiterating his belief that she caved in due to pressure from the social justice warriors at the NCAA.
“Oh, so you’re saying, so hold on, just to be clear, it’s not the bill . . . so, you’re saying the NCAA threatened you and you don’t think you can win that fight?” Carlson shot back.
“They said if you sign this, we won’t allow girls in South Dakota to play and you don’t think you can win in court, even though the public overwhelmingly supports you nationally. And so you’re caving to the NCAA? I think that’s what you’re saying.” Tucker added.
Even though she claims to be a conservative fighter, Kristi Noem proved that she’s willing to cave at the first sign of pressure from the radical Left.
