Earlier this month, one in every of Arizona’s best-known drag queens accused Lake of hypocrisy, claiming that the right-wing Trump acolyte had attended “numerous” drag exhibits over the previous 20 years. Richard Stevens, who performs as Barbra Seville, mentioned Lake had even employed him as soon as to carry out at her residence in entrance of her youngster. He supplied images of himself in drag with Lake as proof.
Lake has, throughout her marketing campaign, attacked drag queens as harmful to kids.
Fox Information anchor Bret Baier requested Lake concerning the story on Monday after she spoke for a number of minutes about 2020 election fraud conspiracy theories.
“I really do care to deal with that,” Lake replied. “And I’m actually shocked. I’m really appalled that Fox Information would take a defamatory story like that ― and we’re pursuing authorized motion in opposition to this drag queen ― I’m appalled that you’d deliver that up when you haven’t talked about our stolen election.”
“We simply spent three questions, Ms. Lake, speaking about this,” Baier replied.
“I’m actually dissatisfied in Fox,” Lake added. “I believed you have been somewhat higher than CNN.”
She claimed Stevens had by no means been in her residence. Requested to elucidate the images, Lake diverted again to election conspiracy theories, then mentioned “we don’t need our tax cash going into drag exhibits at college.” She berated Baier once more for bringing the hypocrisy accusation up.
She by no means answered the query concerning the photos.
