Kristi Noem criticizes Fox Business host for questioning her role in dog’s death

No Going Back: South Dakota Governor Faces Criticism for Euthanizing Dog in Memoir

The recent release of South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s memoir, “No Going Back,” has sparked a controversy surrounding her decision to put down her 14-month-old dog, Cricket, over 20 years ago. Animal rights advocates and political rivals alike have weighed in on the matter, with some sharing photos of their own pets as a form of protest.

During a recent interview with Fox Business host Stuart Varney, Noem faced tough questions about her decision to kill her dog. When pressed on the topic and asked if she had discussed it with former President Donald Trump, Noem refused to disclose their personal conversations. She deflected the question and emphasized that she talks to Trump regularly, prompting Varney to continue pushing for an answer.

The exchange became heated as Noem grew frustrated with Varney’s line of questioning, ultimately telling him the interview was “ridiculous” and urging him to focus on more important topics. Despite the criticism she has faced for her decision, Noem has defended herself by stating that Cricket was a dangerous animal and that she was protecting her children at the time.

As the controversy surrounding Noem’s memoir continues to unfold, she remains a prominent figure in the Republican Party and has even been rumored as a potential vice presidential nominee. Despite the criticism, Noem has stood by her decision to euthanize her dog and has refused to back down in the face of backlash.
