Oh, the theatrics of modern politics!
There was a time when the thought of a politician getting up close and personal with a dairy cow would be seen as a publicity stunt, or maybe just downright bizarre.
But not for Kari Lake.
In a world where politicians seem to live in ivory towers and rarely descend to mingle with us mere mortals, Lake decided to roll up her sleeves and make a point.
Let’s set the stage.
Iowa State Fair, a dairy barn, and Kari Lake in jeans and boots.
Not the typical backdrop for a political statement.
But that’s what makes it all the more brilliant.
By taking the familiar ‘cow and bull’ analogy to drive home a point about gender, she did what few politicians are brave enough to do – she made a serious point while having a bit of fun.
It was a masterstroke in how to handle today’s ‘woke’ culture with humor and simplicity.
Now, whether you agree with her sentiment or not, you have to admit that the imagery is powerful.
A politician, in the heartland, milking a cow, challenging urban journalists to distinguish between a cow and a bull.
It’s political theater at its best, reminiscent of the tongue-in-cheek style of former President Trump.
Watch Kari Lake challenge a NYT reporter while she was milking a cow below:
Kari Lake mocks Regime Media to their faces while milking a cow:
“You know there are only two genders, right? The New York Times should try to milk a cow and then try and milk a bull and see how that goes.”

We have signed up HUNDREDS of people to caucus for President Trump. Notably, quite a few Independents AND Democrats that are joining the GOP to support our favorite President! 🇺🇸 https://t.co/E5izBDVTgA

But beyond the laughs and the viral nature of such an event, Kari Lake, in that moment, became one of us.
There was no distance, no elitism.
Just an individual, making a point in the most down-to-earth way possible.read more
