Former Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is turning heads again after she helped create an launch a new song that puts President Joe Biden’s 2020 election in her crosshairs.
OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author’s opinion.
Entitled “81 Million Votes My A**,” the song implies strong skepticism towards the notion that Biden acquired such a significant amount of support, particularly considering his limited campaign appearances, which he attributed to the ongoing COVID pandemic.
“The Spotify song credits list the Truth Bombers as performers and Jeffrey Steele as one of the writers,” Slay News reported. “Steele previously wrote hits for country music stars Rascal Flatts and Tim McGraw.”
According to Forbes, some of those involved in the production were also part of the team that created the tune “Justice for All,” which “is an anthem performed by Jan. 6 political prisoners,” the outlet reported further.
According to the outlet, Lake has been promoting the song through her social media platforms. The title is believed to have been taken from a remark she made during a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in March.

It should be noted that reports confirmed that Biden did receive more than 81 million votes during the 2020 election cycle, and no court challenges from then-President Donald Trump were successful.
Here is one of the lyrics: “I can’t afford the groceries, I can’t afford your gas, it’s Biden inflation nation” and “you failed to build back better, you p***** off the middle class.”
The song also contains clips of speeches and remarks from Lake throughout, including, “If you would have told me two years ago, three years ago, that I would be in the middle of a political movement, I’d have said ‘put down Hunter’s crackpipe.’”
The song also features former President Donald Trump, who recites the Pledge of Allegiance. The production of the song involved music executive LJ Fino and Ed Henry, the owner of Mailman Media company, according to Forbes.
Last month, during an interview with Piers Morgan, Lake criticized Fox News, accusing them of promoting a “globalist agenda.” The interview grew heated as Lake defended her stance on gun control and Second Amendment rights.
Morgan mentioned recent polls that demonstrated widespread support for tougher gun control measures, such as mental health evaluations and background checks:
“87% of Americans back stricter background checks. 81% agree the legal age to buy a gun should be raised to 21. 80% agree that anyone who buys a gun should go through a mental health assessment. 80% want police to take guns from people who consider them a danger to themselves. 77% want a 30 day waiting period for all gun purchases,” he quoted.
But Lake was not swayed by the poll numbers. “Fox News is a globalist network pushing a globalist agenda and the globalists want to make sure,” she retorted.
“Fox News is watched by a lot of gun owners,” Morgan observed.
“Fox News is a globalist network run by globalists who want to bring down our constitution and take away our second amendment,” Lake responded.
“So everybody who took part in that independent poll is a globalist?” Morgan asked incredulously.
“No, but Fox News is a globalist network. Let’s just face it, we all know the truth here,” Lake said.
Morgan, however, defended Fox News as the biggest conservative network in the country. “I don’t think Fox News is a globalist network. It’s the biggest conservative network in the country,” he argued.
