According to Fox News, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem posted a photo of herself firing a flamethrower to Instagram with the caption, “Is it too late to add something to my Christmas list ….” So, yes, the picture below is real, and it’s spectacular. We don’t know why she has a flamethrower (do you need a reason?), but “a spokesperson for Noem told Fox News that the flamethrower is not hers.”

Noem appeared at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit this past weekend and declined to answer the question of whether she was planning to run in 2024 … so there’s a chance.

Now everyone is going to want a flamethrower for Christmas.
