Kim Reynolds faces Twitter backlash after Iowa Republican speech

September 17, 2023 by No Comments

Today, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds made a Republican speech in Iowa which she wrote about on her Twitter account. Here, she showed a picture of her speaking on stage, with the caption: “Record turnout of faithful patriots fighting for the values that make our country great! #FaithFamilyFreedom. That’s all we need!”

In typical Kim Reynolds fashion, this speech had its fair share of negative replies, as a total of 75 people commented on the photo. While it should be noted that not all of these comments were negative, it’s also fair to say that the majority weren’t impressed with her speech.

Here, one user named Mary Orantejo replied: “If you are so jazzed about living in a theocracy where religion and politics are one—move to Iran or Saudi Arabia. We have a separation of church and state in the United States. Or did you forget about that?” This also prompted another commenter to add: “It’s not faith you’re opposed to, but morals. No one is proposing a theocracy.”

This comes just months after it was reported that Kim Reynold’s approval rating had fallen after a poll that asked Iowans about her leadership. Nonetheless, for now at least, it looks like business as usual for Reynolds who has continued her role as Iowa governor throughout the summer.
