In New Interview(s), Noem Won't Admit She Lied About Kim Jong Un Meeting

Gov. Kristi Noem refused to give a straight answer to a simple question when CBS Mornings, anchor Natalie Morales tried to get to the bottom of her flimsy claim as a Congresswoman she met with Kim Jong-Un that appeared in her new book.

Let’s talk first, but we don’t want to talk about a lot of topics that you address in the book, but the book is called No Going Back, but it sounds like the publisher Center Street is going back on a couple of the details in the book.

I don’t believe so.

WTF? What doesn’t she believe?

Morales: Specifically when you write in the book, I remember when I met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. ‘I’m sure he underestimated me.’ That, as I understand, is now being removed from the book at your request.

Noem: Yes, when I became aware of that, we changed the content and the future editions will be adjusted. And, you know, I appreciate that. I’ve met with many, many world leaders. I’ve traveled around the world. I should not have put that anecdote in the book, and at my request, they have removed it.

Q: That specific meeting didn’t happen?

Noem: I’m saying that I’m not talking about that meeting. I’m not talking about my meetings with world leaders.

Q: But you do talk about meetings with world leaders.

Noem: There are some that are in the book, and then there’s some that’s not in the book.

But why are there two specific mentions of meeting Kim Jong-un and talking about him, and a specific memory? I’m sure he underestimated me, having no clue about my experience staring down little tyrants. Did you tell your ghostwriter to write them?

Noem: I specifically have worked on policy for over 30 years, and over that time, I have traveled around the world. And I have met with leaders around the world. And that anecdote, I’ve asked them to change the content, and it will be removed.

Q: It’s a simple question. Did you or did you not meet with Kim Jong-un?

Noem: That’s the answer that I have for you, is that it will be adjusted, and as soon as I became aware of it, that content…

This was not a cartoon. Saying that was the best answer she had for the CBS crew was mind-blowing. That was a most awkward conversation of a politico caught in a big lie trying to spin their way out of it.

Instead of spinning, she sank.

Also yesterday on her whirlwind book tour.
