Tomi Lahren: Free the fireworks

“As a proud native of the great state of South Dakota, I must say it is an absolute abomination the Biden administration blocked the fireworks show that was set to take place at Mt. Rushmore this Independence Day weekend,” she said. 

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has told Fox News that following President Biden’s election, the National Park Service has denied her permit request to have fireworks at Mt. Rushmore, citing environmental and indigenous rights concerns.  Lahren didn’t buy it.

“This is Biden’s America now, and in Biden’s America, all fun, festive and patriotic things are pooped on,” she said. 


The Fox Nation host said the Biden administration’s reasoning for not granting the permit was “a ‘B’ for ‘BS’.”

“Naw, I think it is much more likely that this decision was politically motivated,” she continued. 

“Our belief is truly that it was political,” Gov. Noem told Fox News. “I believe the Biden administration pulled the fireworks from us to be punitive. They did not like us hosting it last year in the middle of COVID.”

“They did not like the fact that President Trump was here celebrating with us,” she continued. “They’re doing it for arbitrary reasons.” 

“Yup, methinks that has a whole heck of a lot to do with it,” Lahren agreed. “It’s not ‘en vogue’ to celebrate America, much less the Founding Fathers who helped build it.” 

Lahren also noted that Biden’s refusal to allow fireworks could have a negative impact on South Dakota’s economy. 

“Outside of agriculture, tourism is our biggest industry in South Dakota,” she said. “By taking away these fireworks the administration is robbing local businesses of a great deal of revenue – once again punishing the little guy to make a political point.” 

“What a bummer and what a disappointment,” she concluded. “Biden’s America strikes again.”
