Kristi Noem lights up her YouTube channel today with three new ads attacking Marty Jackley.
Then Noem puts Zylstra Kaiser herself on the screen to say Jackley shouldn’t be Governor or Attorney General or occupy any position of power:
“You can’t be above the law just because you’re the one that enforces it,” says Zylstra Kaiser. Can I get an Amen (and a retweet with comment on most of what Donald Trump is doing)?
And what’s Marty got against that? An appeal to rank Trumpism against the faintly non-spineless things Noem said about Trump’s scuzziness before he won the 2016 election:
“I believe his statement was un-American and I don’t agree with it”—Noem said that December 2015 in response to Trump’s proposed Muslim ban.
“He’s not my candidate”—in the March 31, 2016, article tagged in the video after this quote, Noem also says, “I do believe we need to have a Republican, if my choice was a Republican over Hillary Clinton.”
For the record, Kristi Noem publicly endorsed Trump on May 4, 2016.
Maybe Jackley will throw more videos up on his YouTube channel, but as it stands as of this writing, Noem’s three videos clobber Jackley’s one. Noem can more easily refute Jackley’s silly sally by pointing out her record of backing the current occupant of the White House. She can also take heart at the evidence that, while an absurdly detached-from-reality 72% of South Dakotans have a favorable impression of Donald Trump, der Führerprinzip does not appear to be turning into primary votes for statewide office in South Dakota. Jackley has to work much harder to refute what Noem’s videos say about EB-5, the sexual harassment/retaliation lawsuit, and Laura Zylstra Kaiser, and his refutations so far sound legalistic and unsatisfying.
And Noem’s third video has a real person, not a paid narrator, but a real South Dakotan, speaking truth to the powers that hurt her. Even Republican South Dakotans have to appreciate that.
p.s.: Can anyone find any public record of when Marty Jackley endorsed Donald Trump in the 2016 election?
