“This is the quote, ‘Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake who has attacked drag queens as dangerous to children attended the shows of drag queen Richard Stephens for 20 years and once hired him to perform at her home,’ Do you care to address that?” asked Baier.
“I do care. I actually do care to address that and I’m really shocked. I’m actually appalled that Fox News would take a defamatory story like that and we are pursuing legal action against this drag queen, I’m appalled that you would bring that up when you have not talked about our stolen election,” Lake said.
Baier shot back, saying, “We just spent three questions” talking about the 2020 election.
“Let’s address this story in the Washington Post,” Baier continued, “Every candidate takes tough stories.”
