Kari Lake’s Halloween zinger: ‘The scariest costume to put on is Liz Cheney – no candy at anyone’s door’
According to America First superstar Kari Lake, it will hardly be a Happy Halloween for anyone theoretically going trick or treating in a “scary” Liz Cheney costume.
The GOP candidate for Arizona governor appeared on “Fox & Friends Sunday” and reaffirmed how the attack ad featuring U.S. Rep. Cheney that seemingly touted Lake’s opponent, debate-ducking Democrat Katie Hobbs, prompted Lake’s campaign fundraising to go through the roof.
In an open letter, the former broadcaster previously trolled Cheney (RINO-Wyo.) on social media for her campaign’s massive cash haul after that ad completely backfired.
“My team tells me your commercial should add another 10 points to our lead! I guess that’s why they call the Cheney anti-endorsement the gift that keeps on giving,” Lake quipped in the correspondence.

The Trump-endorsed Lake told the Fox News trio in the clip embedded above that “My goodness: I’m telling you, she is going to be our best fundraiser yet. We have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars since her ad started, and since we put that letter out…She is hated by both sides right now.”
The disgust for Liz Cheney (whose main claim to fame is globalist warmongering) is bipartisan, Lake claimed.
“We’re actually bringing Democrats over to our movement.
“They don’t like Liz Cheney either. And for her to think that she can come into Arizona and try to influence this election, it’s comical. It’s sad and a little bit scary. I think the scariest costume you could put on for Halloween would be Liz Cheney. You’ll get no candy at anyone’s door,” Lake joked.

On a far more serious note, Lake reaffirmed during the interview that as part of her Day One agenda, she will declare an invasion on the southern border and deploy resources to secure Arizona’s boundary, including finishing the wall, given the emergency created by Biden and the Democrats in allowing massive human trafficking and drug smuggling there.
Neocon Liz Cheney also has culpability for the border catastrophe, Kari Lake insisted.
“We’ve got a real frightening situation at the border. We do have an invasion. Millions of people pouring across illegally. Many of them do have criminal backgrounds, and we know right know that the cartels are in control of our border. And we are seeing a crisis with the fentanyl that’s pouring across…and people like Liz Cheney are more concerned with running her mouth, trying to prevent someone like me who wants to protect the citizens of Arizona, than wanting to do something about it.”

“[Cheney is] more concerned with January 6 commission than the migrant who came over on January 6 and wanted to kill and tried to kill a Border Patrol agent. We have a crisis; on day one, we’re calling it what it is, an invasion, and we’re going to send our National Guard to the border to stop people from coming over, and take on the cartels, and end their fentanyl trafficking through Arizona.
“It’s as simple as that. We have the right. It’s in the U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 10; we will invoke those powers, and the state of Arizona will take charge of the border,” Lake asserted.
Lake is currently the favorite in the election, assuming polling data is accurate.

Attorney Harriet Hageman defeated Cheney by a landslide in the August 16 GOP primary, and is essentially a lock in the general election.
Apart from being a Pelosi pawn, the pro-impeachment Cheney — who, with the help of the media, has delusions of running for president — appears to be auditioning for a cushy gig on CNN or MNSBC, where she can continue to bash former President Trump and members of her own party who support free speech, who she has demonized, using Democrat terminology, as election deniers.
As vice-chair of the partisan J6 committee, if the disingenuous Cheney really wanted to get to the bottom of the riot of the Capitol, she could have demanded, for example, cross-examination of witnesses, a probe of possible FBI instigation, sought the release of thousands of hours of surveillance video that Capitol Police is reportedly sitting on, and also tried to find out why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi allegedly denied the Capitol police chief’s repeated request for National Guard backup when everyone knew a huge protest was coming.
Perhaps the best orator in the entire MAGA movement, Kari Lake is well known for going on the offensive against the Dems and the “fake news” liberal corporate media, the latter being an industry that she obviously knows closely, rather than allow herself to be put on the defensive like a typical, lacking-in-savvy Republican politician.
