On MSNBC's Deadline White House, former D.C. Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone described the Republican nominee for governor of Arizona, election-denying Kari Lake, using just three words.

The panel discussed a newly released ad by the Republican Accountability Project that targets Lake and features the mother of deceased Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick. Like Fanone, Sicknick defended the Capitol on Jan. 6. Unfortunately, Sicknick died shortly after.

Here's the powerful video they were talking about featuring Gladys Sicknick:

"Michael, is that hard to watch?" Nicolle Wallace asked Fanone. "I know these are people that we've come to admire, and we follow their stories, but these are your friends and colleagues."

"I've gotten to know Mrs. Sicknick pretty well, and I thought that was a powerful ad," Fanone said. "She is out there, I think, trying to do what all of us are trying to do here, which is bring accountability for January 6. And, you know, I also support the fact that Kari Lake's a piece of shit, so I'm glad she did that ad."

Yes, Kari is a piece of shit. We can't disagree with him there. Lake has come out strong against drag queens, then a drag queen who performs as Barbra Seville called her out, posting images on social media showing him in drag with Lake, as well as text message exchanges to back up his claims that they were friends. She even donated to John Kerry's campaign in 2004 and Barack Obama's in 2008. My point is that she's a phony. The MAGA Republican crime spree is nothing but a grift.

So, yeah, she's a piece of shit. She's a whole entire bitch.

Can you help us out?
