respect and show them “compassion.” But their actions do not seem to back up their words. This was not the only thing that plagued Hobbs’s public image on inauguration day. For instance, she held a lavish inaugural ball following the ceremony, a bad look given how bad the economy is and how many Americans are struggling with paying for food and energy. Plus, she refused to reveal which major donors were funding the party.
A tipster shared these pictures with me. Apparently prison labor was used to set up the inauguration of Arizona’s new governor today at the state capitol in Phoenix. The incarcerated workers were hurried away from the event as volunteers and staff arrived. pic.twitter.com/087pGf6pad— Jimmy Jenkins (@JimmyJenkins) January 5, 2023
She also burst into laughter while taking the oath of office, leading many to conclude that she and her family were not taking the oath seriously.
New: For Arizona @GovernorHobbs‘ inauguration events, donors were asked to give $250,000 – an unprecedented amount – to a new group incorporated by Hobbs’ campaign manager that doesn’t have to disclose donors/amounts/spending. https://t.co/KVVQJ1lINZ via @azcentral pic.twitter.com/mVg24dO4Oq— Stacey Barchenger (@sbarchenger) January 5, 2023
The whole spectacle leaves serious questions about what kind of administration Hobbs will run. Will she be running a serious administration concerned with the good of Arizona’s citizens, or will she be running an administration that treats the job as a joke and uses people as cheap labor? Whether it is the use of convicts as cheap labor, the lavish inaugural ball, or lack of proper etiquette during the oath of office, Katie Hobbs’s term as Arizona’s governor has not gotten off to a good start. And now that Hobbs is firmly under the microscope as governor, her controversial debate “strategy” (read: hiding) isn’t going to fly. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
So at best the family isn’t taking it seriously. At worst she is nervous about swearing allegiance to the state and country— Tyler Bowyer (@tylerbowyer) January 2, 2023
