Kari Lake has labeled Florida Governor Ron DeSantis a “phony” for correctly stating that ex-President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election via Newsweek.
DeSantis is trailing Trump by a wide margin in the race for the 2024 Republican nomination but remains his most formidable challenger, told NBC News on Monday that “of course” the former president lost the last election, despite repeated claims to the contrary by Trump and many of his allies. The governor also told reporters in Iowa last week that Trump’s conspiracy theories of massive election fraud “did not prove to be true.”
Lake, a staunch proponent of Trump’s election claims who also falsely claims that fraud was to blame for her loss to Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs in 2022, discussed the Florida governor’s recent remarks during a Monday interview with former Trump adviser Steve Bannon. He criticized DeSantis for what she said was a lackluster turnout on the campaign trail in Iowa before calling him “disgusting” and a “backstabber” for admitting that President Joe Biden won in 2020.
“I saw a little bit of [DeSantis’ NBC interview] … disgusting,” Lake said on Bannon’s War Room podcast. “I’ll tell you what, the people of Iowa don’t like backstabbers. I’m from Iowa, I grew up there. They can smell a phony from a mile away. They’ve determined that Ron’s a phony.”
“He’s got to buy endorsements, spending all that big donor money, wasting it,” she continued. “When he really should be supporting [former] President Trump … this is about saving our country.”
