Fittingly, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem was gifted a FLAME THROWER for Christmas

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has a reputation for being a fiery advocate for freedom and self-reliance, sentiments that seem to prevail in the northern parts of the Midwestern region of America.

The daughter of a rancher and farmer, Noem knows a thing or two about getting her hands dirty having left college early to come back home and help run the family business after her father was killed in 1994 in a farm machinery accident. All of this makes it only fitting that she got a flame thrower for Christmas.

The Republican governor’s staff gifted her a flame thrower and she was only too happy to show it off in a video clip where she goes up against a pile of cardboard boxes that didn’t stand a chance.

In what he characterized as a “scoop,” Real Clear News White House reporter Philip Melanchthon Wegmann shared the footage along with the photos seen above.

The reporter added a little context in the following tweet:

Set against a snowy backdrop, it’s definitely winter in South Dakota and Noem was dressed the part in camouflage gear as she appears with her husband Byron Noem.

“Perfect!” she declares, after laying waste to the boxes.

Noem, who is seen as a rising star in the Republican Party, shared a moving testimonial to her father in a series of tweets last year.

“My dad was a cowboy. He was the toughest person that I’ve ever known,” she wrote. “Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to grow up and be like him. When he died, I was just 22 years old, and I had to take over as general manager of the family business.”
