OPINION: This article might include commentary which displays the creator’s opinion.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem obtained a brutal wake-up name throughout an interview with Newsmax TV on Tuesday concerning her probabilities at being named former President Donald Trump’s working mate following a revelation in her upcoming e-book that she shot and killed a household canine that developed a behavior of attacking livestock and folks.

Newsmax host Rob Finnerty informed Noem that due to the story, which has drawn widespread condemnation from each the fitting and the left, he felt like she was now not in consideration.

“Noem’s new memoir ‘No Going Back’ has sparked several controversies over its content, including an anecdote about Noem killing her 14-month-old dog and a story about the governor ‘staring down’ North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during a meeting that allegedly never took place,” Mediaite reported.

During the interview, Finnerty declared, “I think part of the problem with politics today is that politicians aren’t honest with the American people.”

“That’s true, I agree,” stated Noem, who was in-studio.


“Governor, if you asked me a month ago who’s at the top of the list to run with Donald Trump, I would have said your name. If you asked me that same question this morning, I don’t even think you’re on the list,” Finnerty then stated.

“Really? And why is that?” requested Noem.

“Yes, really, and it’s because of things that have come out in this book, like your claims that you met Kim Jong-un,” he went on. After studying the quote from her e-book, he requested, “Governor, that never happened, did it?”

“I should not have put that anecdote in the book,” Noem responded, main Finnerty to fireplace again, “But an anecdote indicates that it happened, right?”

“I’m not going to talk about my conversations with world leaders,” Noem stated in response, an announcement she has repeatedly made when pressed about whether or not she met the North Korean dictator.

“Governor, I’m not asking you about the details of this alleged meeting,” Finnerty shot again. “I’m asking if the meeting happened. I don’t think it did, and I think if it did, you’d be able to confirm for me that, ‘Yes, it did, and here’s when it happened.’ It happened, say, at such and such a date or a month, or you don’t have to be specific.”

After the governor refused once more to say definitively whether or not or not the assembly occurred, Finnerty responded, “Again, I think at one point you were at the top of that list, but you’re going to get questions a lot more difficult than that.”

According to her forthcoming e-book, the total title of which is, “No Going Back: The Truth on What’s Wrong with Politics and How We Move America Forward,” Noem detailed the choice to shoot Cricket, her 14-month-old wirehair pointer, citing issues about its purportedly aggressive demeanor and unsuitability as a looking canine. Additionally, she recounted taking pictures and killing a household goat after it chased down her youngsters.

Noem defended her choice to kill Cricket due to South Dakota’s regulation permitting homeowners to put down canine who “attack and kill livestock,” according to The Guardian. The canine, adopted to hunt pheasants, allegedly killed a household’s chickens by “grabb[ing] one chicken at a time, crunching it to death with one bite, then dropping it to attack another.”

“Whether running the ranch or in politics, I have never passed on my responsibilities to anyone else to handle,” Noem stated. “Even if it’s hard and painful. I followed the law and was a responsible parent, dog owner, and neighbor. As I explained in the book, it wasn’t easy. But often the easy way isn’t the right way.”

Reports following the revelation claimed that Trump was “disgusted” by her killing of the canine and that she would now not be thought-about as a working mate.
