Kristi Noem Feud With Matt Walsh Has Conservatives Taking Sides

Kristi Noem has an interesting feud going on. The South Dakota governor took to Twitter to take on conservative commentator Matt Walsh over the night. At issue are some comments Walsh made on a talk show earlier in the week. During that appearance, he had some extremely harsh comments about the governor.

The issue started when Noem declined to ban South Dakota businesses from instituting COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Her position stands her in contrast to fellow Republican governors Ron DeSantis (Florida) and Greg Abbott (Texas), both of whom barred business from requiring proof of vaccination from customers. Noem’s departure from the party line seems to have annoyed Walsh.

Speaking on his Daily Wire show, Walsh blasted Noem.

“Kristi Noem is a very attractive woman, so she’s got that going for her,” Walsh started. “As far as I can tell, that’s the only reason why she was ever looked at as some sort of 2024 potential frontrunner. The hype and everything that she’s gotten from conservative media is entirely based on the fact that she’s an extremely attractive woman, which she is.”

He went a step further in the next sentence.

“But you know, you put 50 pounds on her and another 20 years,” he added. “I don’t think she gets any of the hype. Because outside of that, she’s just a, just your standard corporatist establishment Republican who’s not interested in doing anything.”

Backlash Begins From Kristi Noem

Not long after the clip of Walsh’s words started circulating the web, Noem fired back.

“Instead of engaging in a debate about the proper role of government and how it isn’t conservative to tell people how to do business,” the governor wrote. “@MattWalshBlog stooped to horrible misogyny.” She finished off with a shot of her own. “Eyes up here, Matt.”

Her response to the political commentator’s words started a debate on Twitter about who was in the right.

Taking Sides

“Follow the trend of Matt Walsh and you’ll soon realize a recurring symptom of today’s conservative commentary,” one Twitter user wrote. “The commentary is not based in reality, but simply a rallying point for like-minded individuals.”

While most people seemed to be backing Noem in this argument, there were a few conservatives who took the side of Walsh. Chief among them was former Trump administration legal counsel, Jenna Ellis. She also seemed to have a problem with Noem not banning the mandates.

Other social media users pointed out that it was fun to watch two conservatives fight each other.

Others continued the feud by attacking those who were taking sides.

Just how this particular feud is going to play out is yet to be seen. However, the fight continued between the two sides continued well into Thursday morning.
