Maybe part-time Governor Kristi Noem has been slow to respond to her primary opponent Steven Haugaard’s criticism of her spendy sauna because she was away from her decked-out mansion this week enjoying and being enjoyed at the South Point Spa, Casino, and Hotel in beautiful Las Vegas!
Vegas! Is that why she was trying out her Elvis costume a few weeks ago?
Ready for trick or treaters to come see us tonight! Willie Nelson, Dolly Pardon, (little Elvis) Elvis, and Johnny Cash are ready to rock! pic.twitter.com/p9qtculVuL

No, no—Noem was away from her side gig governing doing her full-time job, campaigning, in the guise of keynote speaker at the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association 2021 convention. From the looks of this photo of Noem’s speech from Rodeo News, Noem misread the hotel’s face-covering requirement as “fur covering”:
Hey, Senator Troy Heinert—check your closet! It looks like Kristi might have snuck off to Vegas with one of your fine fur frocks. Either that, or GF&P was able to string together a few opossum scraps for Noem’s Vegas vestment.
The PRCA convention appears to be Noem’s first trip back to Vegas since September 26, when unpleasant trip prompted her public breakup with
trusted Presidential campaign coach horrible bum Corey Lewandowski. Funny that she hasn’t tweeted yet about getting back on her interstate travel horse. I’d think someone on Team Noem would have put together some nice clips on Kristi’s triumphant return to Vegas….
