An Editorial Opinion

In her new book, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem bragged that she shot and killed Cricket, a 14-month-old German wirehaired pointer puppy she was training for pheasant hunting. Noem falsely claimed the puppy was “dangerous” to livestock and children and had to be put down.

Noem led Cricket to a gravel pit and shot him to death because he was "untrainable." Noem could have rehomed Cricket but instead chose to destroy him.


Noem, a right-to-life conservative Republican, included the story about killing Cricket in her book to show "MAGA World" she is willing to do anything “difficult, messy and ugly,” if it has to be done.  Noem thought her willingness to kill a helpless puppy would impress the MAGA faithful.   Judging from the political backlash Noem is experiencing, she was wrong.


Noem also claimed she met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.   This claim is false, as well.  Noem has tried to walk back the claimed meeting with Kim Jong Un without acknowledging that she lied about it.

Noem is considered a potential running mate for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.  Noem, who is married, is best known in Republican circles as Trump political operative Corey Lewandowski's alleged mistress.  Lewandowski is married, as well.

Considering Noem’s propensity to lie, cheat, kill puppies, and suck up to ruthless dictators, she might be the most compatible candidate to serve as Donald Trump’s vice-presidential running mate.

It should be no surprise to see Noem's conduct in the order it's in. Her obsession of Donald Trump is the number one caused driving her to commit such heinous act of killing an innocent puppy.

Why she may or may not feel no shame, because, she's rooted in idea that her supremacy will outweigh any law that tend to hold her accountable even if it involves murdering a harmless childlike creature known as a puppy.

If I'm permitted for the moment to be hypothetical, Noem's courage to openingly talk about the killing a puppy as if it was the moral thing to do only fuel the hype of eliminating things that's considered a "menace" to society.

Since the killing…
