Last week should have been easy-peasy for Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, friend of the people and enemy of a Corporate America that wants to shove LGBTQQIAAP2S+ and other weirdness upon the American people. He’s drawing nice-sized crowds out of state and picking up the small endorsements that win primaries.
The indictment of President Trump for keeping documents for his eventual presidential library was a key opportunity for DeSantis to rise above the fray by stating unequivocally that he opposes the railroading President Trump.
Kevin McCarthy got it right. He said, “This is going to disrupt this nation because it goes to the core of equal justice for all, which is not being seen today. And we’re not going to stand for it.
“This is a very dark day in America when you think about what they’re trying to indict President Trump on. You’ve got a sitting president right now in the exact same situation. You have a former first lady, senator, secretary of state, that had the same situation that nothing was done to.”
DeSantis tweeted, “The weaponization of federal law enforcement represents a mortal threat to a free society.
“We have for years witnessed an uneven application of the law depending upon political affiliation.
“Why so zealous in pursuing Trump yet so passive about Hillary or Hunter?
“The DeSantis administration will bring accountability to the DOJ, excise political bias and end weaponization once and for all.”
Not bad but accountability is a buzzword. His statement also implies President Trump did something wrong. Later DeSantis told supporters that if he took home classified documents, “I would have been court-martialed in a New York Minute.”
But Trump did not do that. As president, he declassified the documents. Throwing shade on Donald Trump is throwing shade on every one of his supporters because that is how it is. After Official Washington declared the mostly peaceful protest an insurrection, that message was clear. Washington wants Trump supporters to go away. We won’t.
And you don’t win the Republican nomination without us. These dingleberries — Nikki Haley, Chrissi Christey and Mikki Pencey — are just pocketing money from rich donors to give President Trump a hard time. We saw what happened to Lizzi Cheney. What makes anyone think these former Trump supporters will be spared the fate of banishment from MAGA?
In fact, how can you win the general election this way because less than half the country believes the indictment is legitimate.
The governor should have simply said indicting Trump was wrong because he did nothing wrong. Instead the governor said Trump should be court-martialed. Sheesh.
DeSantis should be flying high because this is the Pride Month From Hell for the LGBTQQIAAP2S+ Marxists. The public is up in arms against the groomers and their supporters.
AP whined that state legislators across the land have submitted 525 that the LGBTQQIAAP2S+ Marxists don’t like. DeSantis should take a bow because his Parental Rights in Education Act started the ball rolling. He showed leadership.
When the media lied and called it a Don’t Say Gay law, DeSantis stood his ground. Not only that but he took on the largest media conglomerate in the world — Disney — and made it kneel to him.
Instead of making LGBTQQIAAP2S+ Marxists his target, DeSantis is taking shots at President Trump’s covid response. As a Trump supporter since September 2015, I take the shots personal. The shots also smack of desperation as he falls in the polls as Trump rises.
On top of all that, DeSantis took his latest shot in a completely tone-deaf manner. Conservatives are very wary of Big Tech. So what dis the governor do? He used AI to attack Trump.
