Kari Lake’s visit to the Iowa State Fair on Friday became a viral sensation after she was photographed milking a cow. However, it was her comments challenging a New York Times reporter that truly ignited a firestorm on social media.
During her visit to the fair, Lake took the opportunity to not only showcase her cow-milking skills but also to mock leftist gender ideology. In a video captured by Benny Johnson and shared on Twitter, Lake can be seen turning to the New York Times reporter and saying, “You know there are only two genders, right?” The reporter simply shrugs in response.
Lake didn’t stop there. She continued by stating, “The New York Times should try to milk a cow and then try and milk a bull and see how that goes.” Her remarks were met with laughter and applause from the crowd.
The video quickly gained traction online, receiving praise and support from conservatives. Benny Johnson, who posted the video, tweeted, “You a real one, Kari Lake,” expressing his admiration for her candid and humorous remarks.
Conservatives on Twitter also chimed in, with one user responding, “They’d find out real quick, that’s for sure,” highlighting the absurdity of expecting someone to milk a bull. Another user shared a laughing emoji, saying, “Might get the horns,” suggesting that attempting to milk a bull would not end well.
The video even spawned some lighthearted jokes and references. One user humorously mentioned Jeffrey Toobin, a journalist who gained notoriety for an incident involving inappropriate behavior during a video conference. The user tweeted, “Jeffrey Toobin may know something about this subject,” adding a touch of humor to the conversation.
Overall, Lake’s witty and straightforward comments resonated with conservative audiences. Her statements served as a reminder of the importance of biological realities and challenged the prevailing narrative surrounding gender identity.
In an era where political correctness often dominates public discourse, Lake’s unapologetic approach struck a chord with many. Her willingness to challenge conventional wisdom and engage in a bit of humor made her a relatable figure for those who feel their viewpoints are often silenced or dismissed.
As the fair continues, it remains to be seen if any reporters will take Lake up on her challenge to milk a bull. Regardless, her words and actions have certainly left an impression and sparked an important conversation about the boundaries of gender ideology and the need to embrace biological facts.
