Well...I watched Kristi Noem on Tucker the other night with my husband. As she blathered on about her "legal experts" my husband's response was, "This is baloney!" I can think of another B-word description but my mom taught me to be a lady so I won't write it, and I'll try not to think it. But I agreed with Larry. It was a politician defending her betrayal with high sounding "baloney." She will have a lot to do to restore her reputation with serious conservatives...if that is even possible. Instead of being a rising star in the GOP, we may be watching the burnout of a fallen star.
Here are a few articles critiquing Noem's actions from legal scholars. Maybe these are the "experts" she should have consulted.

The Kristi Noem Veto Explained This article is a real eye-opener including the comments.
Sadly Kristi Noem is revealing herself as a typical politician controlled by special interests and willing to abandon principles for pragmatic politics. All it took was the left going after her to show how much backbone she has. I'd say it's a cross between a wet noodle and a reed blowing in the wind. In any case, she is no longer a GOP rising star; she's definitely a falling star and her presidential aspirations are kaput. Can she pull the fat out of the fire? Time will tell.
