Katie Hobbs did it again. According to a new report, Katie Hobbs “quickly left through a freight elevator as reporters were forced to wait in another room” last night following her interview with Arizona PBS.
This is not the first time she has run from reporters and hidden.
There’s something wrong with Katie Hobbs.
Hobbs has been running from reporters for years now. She is running her campaign from her basement and refuses to debate Republican Kari Lake out of sheer terror.
Katie Hobbs once requested that the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce completely separate the two candidates with drapes, partitions, separate parking, and separate entry points during their gubernatorial forum.
Recently, Katie Hobbs scurried away from a black reporter in such a hurry that she spilled her drink. She later hid in a bathroom until a staffer came to her rescue.
It is yet to be known whether this was due to the reporter’s skin color or because she is just afraid of answering questions, but it was likely both.
TGP has reported extensively on Katie Hobbs’ record of racism, her embrace of slavery in high school, her failure to name one good thing about the Hispanic community in Arizona, and her recent freak-out when confronted by a black reporter.
We reported that Katie Hobbs is so afraid to debate Kari Lake, she requested that the Arizona Clean Elections Commission give the candidates two separate forum interviews on Arizona PBS, but they shot her down. Despite this decision by the commission, leftist Arizona PBS went against them and allowed Katie Hobbs to do a 30-minute interview combating Kari Lake’s previously scheduled interview in place of a debate.
The Clean Elections Commission later cut ties with Arizona PBS and chose a new partner to hold a debate on Sunday. Kari Lake and Arizona State Legislators now plan on defunding the taxpayer-funded news organization for being “an arm of the Democratic Party.”
This interview took place last night at the Arizona PBS studio on campus at ASU, and reporters were held in a separate room and not allowed to leave while she departed campus.
The Gateway Pundit reported that ASU’s school of journalism was basically placed on lockdown with “security in and around the building to ensure safety” for this interview citing uncertainty surrounding the circumstances.
ASU even brought in police protection for anti-law enforcement radical Katie Hobbs during the interview.
Did Hobbs request that ASU put the school on lockdown?

Following the interview, she quickly left through a freight elevator as reporters were forced to wait in another room.
Lake had said previously she would show up at Arizona PBS Tuesday, but that didn’t happen. Still, citing uncertainty around the interview, ASU leaders took precautions.
Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication Dean Battinto Batts emailed staff and students late Monday, encouraging remote classes after 3 p.m. because “we do not know what the onsite circumstances may be around the Cronkite building.” The interview was recorded at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
He said in a statement that “students and staff have expressed concern about entering and exiting our building with the potential for protestors and members of the media located right outside.”
Several students at the downtown Phoenix campus, for their part, reported no major qualms with classes shifting to a virtual format or ending early.
“I’ve never seen it this quiet,” said Lucas Metzner, a 20-year-old sports journalism student from Wisconsin, said, standing in the spare lobby of the Cronkite building. ASU police and a police dog stood nearby.
“They basically just told us, kind of get out of the building as soon as you can,” Metzner said.
Hobbs quickly left after the interview, taking a freight elevator to a secure parking garage in the building’s first level.
In the meantime, reporters who watched the interview from a media room were not allowed to leave for several minutes, a departure from normal protocol when media is invited to view interviews or debates at Arizona PBS.
In a statement, Cronkite leaders said guests on Arizona PBS have discretion to speak to other members of the news media. “Entry and exit protocols and parking plans are handled through the security details of our guests and ASU PD,” the statement said.
Sarah Robinson, Hobbs’ spokeswoman, said Hobbs had to get to her next event and couldn’t take questions. Asked what that event was, Robinson did not respond.
Hobbs dodged numerous questions about why she refuses to debate Kari Lake and her racist past during the interview with PBS, calling Kari Lake a “high school bully” and calling the claims about her racism “baseless.”
She even claimed that Kari Lake’s demand for a debate, which she referred to as a “tantrum,” has led to “racist attacks” against people in the PBS building.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Talonya Adams, a victim of Katie Hobbs’ racist actions, called on Katie Hobbs to drop out of the race for Governor and resign from her current role as Secretary of State, saying “she has no place in government.”
Biased hack Ted Simons did not even ask Katie Hobbs about her embrace of slavery and participation in “slave day” auctions when she was in high school.
