Election denier Kari Lake, a Republican gubernatorial candidate in Arizona falsely claimed To Fox Business Network that Rep. Lee Zeldin was stabbed in New York during an event, when he was not.

Maria Bartiromo hosted the far right Republican and let her rant until the cows came home.

"We’ve definitely seen our threats go up. The nasty letters we’re receiving, including the one that’s being investigated — the two that are being investigated right now," Lake said. "Lee Zeldin got stabbed while he was speaking to a crowd of people not all that long ago."

"And it barely got any coverage, so the panic is only coming from the left and they’re only covering any attacks or situations that affect people who are Democrats."

That is a bald-faced lie.

Lee Zeldin was accosted when a man ran onstage holding a My Kitty Plastic Self-Defense Keychain," and not a knife. Zeldin was not injured in the melee.

The media covered it thoroughly. We even wrote about the bombastic Fox News response to the incident.

"They’re failing to recognize that the Republicans running, I think, are being attacked even more," Lake claimed.

Republicans are trying to claim they are the real victims of violence, as usual since their supporters are armed and most likely looking for an excuse to shoot some "libs" at voting drop box locations.

Republicans and their media magnifiers like Fox News went so far as to dismiss the vicious attack on Paul Pelosi, which was targeted at Speaker Pelosi and turned into a gay bashing ceremony of despicable proportions.

And Maria let the lie fly high in the sky.
