GOP candidate turns the tables in hostile 'ambush' interview

Kari Lake
Lari Lake

Kari Lake is running for governor in Arizona, and the Republican is considered by many to be a frontrunner, with an endorsement from President Trump.

Judging by the legacy media’s fear-filled headlines about her, with labels like “falling far,” “is fading,” “gone stagnant” and worse, she’ll likely be fairly popular among voters.

And one recent “interview” she had with a network, ABC, shows her ability to appeal to an American public in which nearly two-thirds believe reporters are more interested in their own agendas that reporting accurately, while Courthouse News reports those who trust journalists have “been declining steadily for decades.”

Watch Lake respond to what typically is known as an “ambush” interview, in which a politician is forced, on camera, to address a no-win question. In this case, it’s the legitimacy of the 2020 president election, and such questions leave no opening for the respondent to address the many nuances of the legitimate concerns over the election process, including how at least one state is reviewing a state constitutional amendment to prevent election malfeasance in the future.

If Lake affirms the election she risks losing support from those who still have doubts. If she denies its legitimacy, she immediately gets labeled as a “conspiracy” theorist.

Watch Lake:

She responded to the question, ‘Well he’s obviously sitting in the White House. Do you think he’s president?”

The reporter used the famous one-liner, “I have no comment.”

But Lake did:

Do you think Joe Biden garnered 81 million votes? Do you think the elections were fair? The problem is that the American people don’t have all the answers because the media is part of the problem. Media’s not reporting it. Media’s never reported our forensic audit fairly. They’re not reporting what’s happening in Georgia. They’re not reporting on these ballot traffickers that are being paid to drop off ballots. Media is doing a huge disservice to this country and the people aren’t getting the full story…”

She continued, “…Media, whose numbers are dropping, dropping like a rock, are going to continue to drop. And pretty soon nobody will be watching. Because the media has turned their back on the people of America and not been honest. ABC News, CNN, MSNBC, spent more than three years lying to the American people saying that Russia colluded with Donald J. Trump to steal an election in 2016. And they knew that was false. They knew they were peddling lies and they did nothing to stop it. It was a complete hoax and it was a lie. And now they’re doing the opposite. We have evidence of corruption in our election and they refuse to cover it. They refuse to be honest with people of this country. It is disgusting what thee media has done. And I think their days are numbered surviving all of this. When you’re lying to the people and you’re the media, it’s a bad business model.”

At a Trump-supporting blog site, a commentary said, “She makes me want to move to Arizona just so I can vote for her….”

It continued commenting about those “ambush” questions:

“Kari didn’t even flinch … didn’t miss a beat … She batted them away like a small little annoying gnat that tries to fly in your face and then she turned the tables on the reporter.”
