Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake made an absolute fool of a reporter for ‘60 Minutes Australia’ during an interview in which the left-wing “journalist” attempted to portray Lake as a conspiracy theorist.
“This was THE most biased interview of my entire life! The Corporate Media Cabal is working overtime to churn out hit pieces. Sadly for them, I hit back harder,” the Republican candidate wrote on Twitter following the interview, and she wasn’t exaggerating.
The Australian interviewer made an effort to paint the Republican candidate as a whack job by using the false narrative the media has created that the January 6th protest was some sort of “political insurrection.”
The reporter asked Lake if she thought the January 6th prisoners should be pardoned – when Lake stopped the politically motivated interviewer right in his tracks.
“I have no say in that,” she explained. “I’m running for governor. This isn’t something a governor does, you’re trying to twist this interview and make me look bad.”
Lake added, “What I don’t like is that people are being held in prison without being charged. That’s unAmerican. Maybe they get away with that stuff in Australia. Perhaps in Australia because you’ve given your rights away, you melted down all of your guns and you guys have no freedom, that you find that okay. But here in America, we do things differently.”
“We have a thing called the U.S. Constitution and we have rights. We don’t take kindly to Americans being locked up for months on end without being charged. So, charge them or get off the pot,” Lake told the reporter.
Lake’s dismantling of the biased reporter over the January 6th comment is just a small sample from the full interview in which the Republican candidate spoke on a variety of topics ranging from fraud in the 2020 election to Australia’s draconian handling of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus plandemic.
