How does one get Donald Trump’s endorsement, anyway? Of course, it goes without saying that a MAGA candidate has to support his Big Lie, but what about races where there are several candidates falling over one another to prove who can spread the most election propaganda?
Kari Lake has Donald Trump’s endorsement in the Arizona gubernatorial race, and she’s happy to tell her fans exactly what the former president likes about her. She says he’s told her the thing that pleases him most, and she’s happy to comply. That is, she never stops pushing the lie that the election was stolen, bringing it up at every opportunity.
Kari Lake thinks it’s normal to turn every conversation into a discussion about stolen election conspiracy theories.

“I love talking to President Trump. I just talked to him on Friday.
He said, ‘I love talking to you Kari, because no matter what question I ask you or what topic we’re talking about, you always veer it over and talk about our corrupt election…I could ask you about your kids and somehow you turn it into the stolen corrupt election.’
It’s very easy.’
‘How are your children?’
‘Well they’re doing great, but I’m so worried about them because they will not having a country to live in if we do not bring back honest elections.’
‘How about that view?’
‘It’s beautiful but how do we enjoy that knowing that our elections are corrupt?’
So it’s easy and we have to start doing that.”
It’s not quite clear whether Lake is suggesting that Republicans must bring up their support of the Big Lie in every conversation, of just every conversation with Donald Trump. It’s very clear, however, that she’s describing a method she’s found effective for winning the former president’s favor.
