Conspiracy theorist and MAGA candidate for Arizona Governor Kari Lake said former Republican President Donald Trump and Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis have "BDE," the slang acronym for "big d*ck energy."

Lake made the comments at a conference for conservative student organization Turning Point USA over the weekend.

Lake then took to Twitter to make sure everyone knew she is standing by her apparent admiration for Trump's and DeSantis' assets or attitude.

Lake made the comment after deciding against complimenting DeSantis' testicles.

Lake said:

“[DeSantis has] bigger—okay, wait let me think about how I want to word this. My staff always says, whatever you do, do not say ‘balls'."

After reconsidering, Lake then said:

"I’ll tell you what he’s got. I don’t know if you’ve heard of this but he’s got BDE. Everybody know what that means? Ask your kids about it later."

She then coined her own version of the acronym.

"I call it ‘big DeSantis energy. He’s got the same kind of BDE that President Trump has."
"And frankly, he has the same kind of BDE we want all our elected leaders to have."

Conservatives loved Lake's comments, with some saying they wished they lived in Arizona so they could vote for her.

But not everyone agreed.

Twitter user @JoJofromJerz said in response to Lake's tweet:

“Welp, that’s sure as sh*t not what Stormy Daniels had to say.”

Others on Twitter pointed out Lake's comment wasn't exactly in line with the Evangelical Christian morality she and other Republicans espouse.

Others were just plain disgusted.

Lake—a QAnon and White nationalist sympathizer, 2020 election denier and former Phoenix news anchor—won the Republican primary in Arizona last week.

She will face Arizona Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs in November.
