Kari Lake Shreds Piers Morgan over Election Comments: ‘I Frankly Don’t Give a Damn What You Think’

GOP rockstar Kari Lake shredded Piers Morgan after the British TV host commented on her disputed Arizona gubernatorial race.

During an interview this week, Morgan pressed Lake to give up her fight to prove her election was stolen and concede the race to Democrat Katie Hobbs.

Lake has been locked in an ongoing legal battle over her November election.

The race was called for Hobbs, who has since been sworn in as governor.

During the gubernatorial race, Hobbs refused to recuse herself while still serving as Arizona’s secretary of state.

On Election Day, there were severe issues at polling centers, such as ballot printer failures, mostly in Republican areas of Maricopa County.

Lake argues that the issues, which were Hobbs’ responsibility, caused voters to be disenfranchised.

Many voters reported that they were unable to vote on Election Day due to the issue and long lines.

Despite her election lawsuit setbacks, however, Lake has stayed determined to see her case through as her legal team awaits a decision from the Arizona Court of Appeals.

Morgan pressed Lake about her firm stance that the election was stolen from her.

He pointed to her close ally President Donald Trump similar issues in the 2020 election.

“I don’t mind your fighting spirit,” Morgan tells Lake during Wednesday’s episode of his talk show, Piers Morgan Uncensored.

“But it does come a point when for the future of democracy, you and Donald Trump have to accept at some point you lost an election,” he continued.

“Otherwise, the entire system collapses.

“If your simple response to losing is always, ‘we didn’t lose, we won,’ then democracy dies.”

Lake continued to defend her position despite the pushback from Morgan.

She noted that she would concede to Hobbs if she had lost “fair and square.”

“I’m fighting for the people of Arizona,” Lake asserted.

“In Arizona, I can’t walk 10 feet without an Arizonan saying, ‘I voted for you, everybody I know voted for you, our ballot was rejected on Election Day, please keep fighting for us.'”

Lake then shredded Morgan over his comments about her conceding the race.

“I don’t mean any offense to you, but I frankly don’t give a damn what you think,” Lake told Morgan.

“I’m fighting for the people of Arizona.”

Morgan continued by questioning Lake on when she would accept that she “lost” the midterm election.

“We are taking [the lawsuit] to the [Arizona] Supreme Court,” the Republican responded.

Lake, when asked about her rumored Senate run, also repeated to Morgan that she has “had many people reach out,” asking her to run in 2024 to challenge independent Senator Kyrsten Sinema.

“It is in the back of my mind, but my No. 1 priority is my case,” Lake added.

“And I want to see my case through.”


Last week, Lake met with officials from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) to discuss the differences between running a gubernatorial campaign and one for Senate.

According to her senior adviser, Caroline Wren, the meeting with NRSC officials was “more listening,” as Lake has still not decided if she wants to run for office again.

On Tuesday, Lake told conservative talk show host Charlie Kirk that she was “entertaining” a Senate run if her court case doesn’t get a “decent ruling.”

Following her appearance on Uncensored, Lake promoted her conversation with Morgan as a “spirited debate” on her Twitter account, telling her followers it was “a great chat.”

Morgan responded to one of Lake’s tweets, writing: “I enjoyed it too—thanks for coming on Kari.”
