In the midst of Trump-endorsed Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake refusing to concede that she lost her bid, and after she dubbed the state a “banana republic,” a derogatory term, a local Arizona columnist gave Lake some good, simple advice: “grow up.”
Lake told Newsmax, about the election:
“This is just an embarrassment. People of Arizona are just sick and tired of elections being run like some banana republic…We won’t have it anymore.”
Lake continued by lying about her opponent:
“We’re going to win this, everybody in this state news we’re going to win it – I was running against a basement candidate who didn’t even campaign.”
Lake has consistently refused to present any evidence of the massive voter fraud she alleges.
The Arizona Republic’s Laurie Roberts wrote, “Oh, grow up, candidates. There’s a reason Arizona election results are taking forever,” and continued:
“Kari Lake was vowing to call the Arizona Legislature into a special session because she didn’t get a balloon drop on election night. Do you need a timeout? That’s what I used to ask my toddler sons when they’d throw themselves onto the floor, kicking and screaming, because they didn’t get their way.”
“Kari Lake was on Fox, complaining about ‘shoddy elections that are run by imbeciles’ and vowing a special session of the Legislature – though I’m not sure why a special session would be needed given that the Legislature will convene just seven days after our new governor takes office.”
“Grow up. For the adults in the room, what’s happening now with the delay in counting was entirely expected. It’s the product of close races and an early ballot system created by Republicans and run by Republicans — a process that was made difficult because of the very Republicans who are now pitching a fit.
