"Imagine losing your sh*t defending a bigot… just ditch the f*cker. Why keep endorsing a bigot unless you are trying to keep the bigot vote?" sneered Rep. Ruben Gallego of Lake's endorsement.
Ruben Gallego Laces Down Kari Lake For Supporting An Anti-Semite

When Kari Lake endorsed an avowed anti-semite from Oklahoma this week she probably knew she'd be stirring up controversy, and perhaps that was the point. Jerrin Jackson's campaign slogan of "Choose Christ, Not Communism" probably appealed to Christofacists. Jackson also won the endorsement of election fraudster Mark Finchem and the MyPillow guy, Mike Lindell. Not impressed though was Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona and he let her know it, in no uncertain terms. As a result, Kari Lake might think twice before getting into any more Twitter spats with Ruben Gallego.

This week, GOP Arizona gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake caused controversy when she endorsed Jarrin Jackson — an Oklahoma legislator who has proclaimed that "the Jews" are evidence that "evil exists" and that "Jews will go to hell."

On Friday, a member of Congress demanded to know whether she endorses those views — and she responded with a bizarre attack insinuating he may have associated with a Chinese spy.

The "Fang Fang" remark is a reference to a story that Swalwell was targeted by a Chinese spy named Christine Fang in 2012. After associating briefly, the FBI informed him of her actual intentions, at which point Swalwell cut all ties to her and provided all the information he could — which experts have broadly said is the correct procedure when targeted by foreign spies. Swalwell has never been accused of any criminal wrongdoing in this incident.

Gallego responded to this with another tweet asking, "Just say whether you agree with the candidate you endorsed. Should “jews go to hell”? He followed up when there was no response, tweeting, "Hi still here. Are you still endorsing the Anti-Semite?"

You just don't get into Twitter fights with Rep. Ruben Gallego.

To which Lake responded, or rather deflected with some Republican dog whistle that only makes sense to Republicans. Not a word about Jackson, naturally.

Gallego shot back.

Crickets from Lake, of course.

And after taking on several Lake supporters on Twitter and vanquishing them all, Gallego threw in one last punch, tagging Lake with this story.
