I keep seeing a lot of ppl claiming the Kristi Noem was the only governor who did not lock her state down.

That’s not because she didn’t try. The state legislature stopped her and after it became popular, she took credit
Both Trump and DeSantis made a lot of pro-lockdown decisions early on. This is an indisputable fact—plenty of factors to blame including public pressure, media intimidation, bogus models, etc. But if 2024 primary is a referendum on early COVID response, neither can claim victory.

Yeah. You can always tell when the new talking points dropped.

For example Ron DeSantis is ESTABLISHMENT for meeting with Trump backed McCarthy.

It’s low IQ and embarrassing. Even taking money to say that stuff is debasing. It’s like doing bukkake for cash.

Have some dignity.

That was March. I was in SD (Mount Rushmore; my profile pic was when I was there) on July 4th of 2020. They had no lock down, no closures, no mask mandates. They knew we were all from out of town. They still let us roam free.

Kemp did the same thing in Georgia. While he deserves and gets credit for opening the state up. It's also true that like EVERY other Gov., he followed CDC recommendation to shutter schools.

The Covid response was a complete failure of vision and leadership by both local and national republicans.
March, 13th 2020 was a crazy day. Even I bought into the “deadly mask wearing zombie apocalypse” propaganda.

Thanks for the clarification, Ryan. However, “not locking down” was never popular. Only after months or years. Hindsight being 20/20 and all.

This is so great. And she was just on War Room recently bragging about being the only one. Another fraud that somehow fools many MAGA conservatives. Honestly, it just goes to show you how dirty 95% of politicians are on both sides. Very few true MAGA.

If you’re #Ignorant enough to believe anything that @AP puts out then there’s no helping you

DAMN.... @govkristinoem do you remember this??? We sure do. Thank you @RyanGirdusky for this post! If you care to look, you'll also find she did the same with the trans athletics ban when @amazon and the @NCAA threatened repercussions. #StayConservative

This was early March of 2020. Everybody was locking down. The issue who opened up the quickest and stayed open.

Fog of war that early. Information was still being collected. Governors caught a lot of criticism for opening and/or keeping things open, when everyone else was afraid. Every Governor can declare an emergency to shut things down, like Whitmer and Newsom.

Lol quoting March 2020 , everyone gets a 2 week to flatten the bull 💩 pass

This is accurate. What is shocking is the number of people in the comments that say lockdowns were the right thing to do early on. NO THEY WERE NOT. SD legislature did the right thing, the only state in the country. We need legislation to prevent lockdowns from happening again.

All leaders such as DeSantis, Trump, and Noem should be given the benefit of the doubt on covid. Nobody knew what was happening in 2020. Everyone was guessing. The DeSimp attempt to make Trump out to be some sort of Fauci dupe is pathetic. Trump supporters don’t lie about Ron.

wow she doubled down on weed prohibition too

I am from SD and I live in Iowa now. Yes.....schools were closed in March of 2020......in my opinion to protect the teachers as much as anything. You got her. She's guilty.
In reply to @RyanGirdusky
Not one ‘leader’ had the instinct millions of Americans had - it was all b.s., from March 2020, in the beginning. I have the luxury of not needing to watch my poll numbers but still, not one Governor. Smh...

The fool proof litmus test: DeSantis is elevated and praised by the Antichristian Globalist ELITE. Even LET DeSantis Win Big, just to Fool Patriots. The NWO Only FEAR TRUMP.
In reply to @RyanGirdusky
Couldn’t she just have declared an emergency and overrode the legislature? If she had that power and chose not to, that also speaks volumes.
