DeSantis lets ego and ambition get the better of him
And with that, I’m all done with the guy.
Ron DeSantis Busts the Media’s Stranglehold
Months of speculation and questions of “Will he or won’t he?” came to an end on Wednesday evening as Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) made it official that he is indeed running for president in 2024.
DeSantis made his announcement on Twitter, appearing in a live Twitter Space with CEO Elon Musk. The announcement was initially riddled with technical errors because the number of listeners crashed Twitter’s servers multiple times. That may sound like a major problem, but it reflects the interest in a DeSantis candidacy.
Twitter ended the Space after about 20 minutes without a substantive announcement, but the stats showed that 387,000 people tried to tune in. A new Space opened up shortly after that, and host David Sacks said, “I think we melted the internet.”
“I am running for president of the United States to lead our great American comeback,” the governor began. He highlighted some of the issues that are plaguing our country under Biden’s leadership: the border crisis, crime, the economy, and woke cultural domination, among other issues.
“We must return normalcy to our communities,” he added.
DeSantis promised to “reestablish integrity in our institutions.” He mentioned bringing the U.S. military back to its mission of defending the country, citing his military service.
Not a single item of which he will be allowed to accomplish as Under-Siege “pResident,” even assuming TPTREALLYB allow him to “win” in the first damned place. Thus is the curtain brought down at last on for-real, genuinely worthwhile accomplishments like this:
DeSantis Signs Law That Strips Illegal Aliens of Their Drivers Licenses; Leftwing #Resistance Media Shrieks That Minorities Are Terrified of DeSantis
So let’s get this out of the way.
DeSantis just signed a law that has illegals worried and the leftwing #ResistanceMedia shrieking.
An undocumented 22-year-old woman sat on her bed in Tampa last week and called her mother, listening to the ringing tone, hoping for another option. When her mother answered, the sound of her soft voice reminded the woman there weren’t any.
“We have to leave Florida,” the woman said.
What’s happening: A new law that Gov. Ron DeSantis signed this month to tighten restrictions on Florida’s undocumented community is driving immigrants out of the state.
The legislation voids out-of-state driver’s licenses for those without proof of citizenship, bars municipalities from using state money to issue identification cards for undocumented immigrants and requires most companies in Florida to verify the immigration status of new hires, among other restrictions.
It also repeals a state law that allowed some undocumented immigrants to obtain a license to practice law in Florida.
State of play: Some undocumented workers in South Florida are not coming to work or they are leaving job sites because of the law — which will come into effect July 1, CBS Miami reports.
CNN cries that blacks, Hispanics, and LGBTQ+ers aren’t “safe” in Florida and should flee the state in terror!
Which, far as I’m concerned, is just another add to the long list of Ron the (once) Great’s accomplishments as FLA Guv. It’s a sad day, folks, whether you like DeSantis (yes, I know plenty of y’all don’t) or not. With this foolish, onanistic fuck-up, we didn’t just lose a great governor; we now stand in very real danger of losing Florida too.
