Noem Calls New Georgia Senators “Communists” Posted by John Axtell Date: January 10, 2021 826 Views One day after she called for peace and healing following riots at the U-S Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem called Georgia’s two incoming Democratic senators communists. Noem made her comments about incoming Sens. Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in an op-ed published Friday by the conservative online magazine The Federalist. South Dakota Democrats criticized Noem’s op-ed, saying she was mimicking Trump’s rhetoric. Noem is a staunch Trump supporter who had campaigned for both the President and the 2 Georgia Republican senators who lost on Tuesday.
