Interview Gets Awkward When Noem Is Asked About Meeting Kim Jong Un

Things got a little awkward when Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan asked South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem about the false claim in her book where she said she met with North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong Un. She told of her meeting that never took place that Kim underestimated her, “having no clue about my experience staring down little tyrants (I’d been a children’s pastor, after all).” That lie falls in line with her claim of being an “alpha-female” compared to Nikki Haley. She uses lies to try to present herself as tough.

“So you write about lessons learned in leadership,” Brennan says. “And you bring up some specific incidents I want to ask you about. You talk about meeting some world leaders and one specific one.”

“Quote, I remember when I met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un,” the CBS host says. ‘I’m sure he underestimated me, having no clue about my experience staring down little tyrants. I’ve been a children’s pastor, after all.’ “Did you meet Kim Jong-un?”

“Well, you know, as soon as this was brought to my attention, I certainly made some changes and looked at this passage,” Noem said. “And I’ve met with many, many world leaders. I’ve traveled around the world. As soon as it was brought to my attention, we went forward and have made some edits. So I’m glad that this book is being released in a couple of days, and that those edits will be in place and that people will have the updated version.

“So you did not meet with Kim Jong-un?” Brennan asks. “That’s what you’re saying.”

“No, I’ve met with many, many world leaders, many world leaders,” Noem said. “I’ve traveled around the world. I think I’ve talked extensively in this book about my time serving in Congress, my time as governor, before governor, some of the travels that I’ve had.”

“I’m not going to talk about my specific meetings with world leaders,” Noem continued. “I’m just not going to do that. This anecdote shouldn’t have been in the book. And as soon as it was brought to my attention, I made sure that that was adjusted. So the book is not released until Tuesday. And so we’re doing all that we can to make sure that those changes are made.”

And I’m going to continue to focus on what this book is and the blueprint that it lays out for the American citizen, on all of the things in the background and stories of my life, but also what I think that needs to be identified in politics and what’s broken today.

I talk about how broken the money game is, how broken it is that we’ve got consultants that are getting rich off of elected officials, and then how fake some elected politicians are,” Noem continued. “Every single person in this country wants someone in elected office that’s a human being that doesn’t say they’re perfect. I take responsibility for that being in the book.”

“And as soon as it was brought to my attention, I asked for it to be changed,” she added. “So I’m glad that the release date is in a couple of days. And we’re excited to talk to America about my new book, ** ***** ****.”

Sorry, I accidentally on purposed censored the name of her book. I had no idea that a person could tap dance while not moving. Well done, puppy killer.
