Trump-backed Arizona candidate lashes out at media for reporting on her QAnon connection


Trump-endorsed Republican candidate for governor of Arizona Kari Lake lashed out at the press on Wednesday for drawing attention to a photo of her and conspiracy theorist and former 8chan administrator Ron Watkins.

A photo of the two was posted to Twitter by AZ Right Wing Watch:

The photo was retweeted by Arizona Mirror political reporter Jeremy Duda, which drew a video response from Lake.

Lake claimed Duda “should be ashamed of himself” for his 10-word retweet. Lake, a former reporter, lectured the press to focus on right-wing talking points, listing off a series of conservative conspiracy theories and fixations.
