Some women want jewelry, a purse or maybe a new sweater for Christmas. Meanwhile, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) asked for something a little more difficult to find: a flamethrower.
In 2020, Gov. Noem first posted using one and joked that she wanted to add it to her Christmas list.
She loved it so much that her own staff pooled their resources to buy the governor one of her own this year.
She posted a video using her new gift at her snowy residence:
Noem’s head of communications, Ian Fury, posted a picture of the flamethrower’s plate, which he called the “best part” aside from the fire itself.
“Under God, The People Rule,” the plate reads.
“Kristi Noem takes the state motto to heart!” Fury tweeted.
