Kristi Noem, potential VP candidate, stands by controversial decision to defend dog killing despite criticism

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem defended a controversial story in her upcoming memoir about killing her puppy Cricket, stating she took responsibility for her actions. Noem faced criticism from both Democrats and Republicans for putting down Cricket and an unnamed goat due to their behavior. As she competes for Donald Trump’s VP nomination, Noem’s response to the situation has been scrutinized on social media. Critics like Laura Loomer believe this anecdote may harm her chances. President Joe Biden’s campaign subtly responded, highlighting his positive interactions with dogs. This is not the first time Noem has faced criticism, as she previously appeared in a commercial while holding public office.
