South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem got a new toy for Christmas – a flamethrower.
It was apparently given to her by her staff. They must really like her.
Is this a common gift for people in South Dakota?
The Daily Mail reports:
America’s fieriest lawmaker! South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem proudly shows off new FLAMETHROWER her staff bought her for Christmas
South Dakota governor Kristi Noem proudly showed off the new flamethrower her staff gifted her for Christmas as she demonstrated its effectiveness by setting ablaze a pile of cardboard boxes as she enjoyed her new holiday toy.
Noem was dressed for the elements in an army-fatigue ensemble – pants with matching jacket – and hat as she stood outside on what appeared to be her property on a snowy Christmas day saying ‘Perfect’ as the heap of boxes burned to a crisp.
In one of the video clips she is seen posing next to her husband, Byron Noem, as she is holding the hand-held device.
The 51-year-old married mother of three is the 33rd Governor of South Dakota. She is the state’s first female governor since she assumed the role in January 2019, and has been seen as a rising star and a potential future presidential candidate.
The Republican official was endorsed by then-president Donald Trump when she was running for office in 2018.
Noem was raised with her siblings in Watertown, South Dakota on the family ranch and farm in Hamlin County, a population of approximately 6,614 as of the 2020 census.
