The Ds Crossed a Line With a Disgusting Sick Attack Against Ron DeSantis
Democrats are doing their best to politicize a heartbreaking personal situation.
It’s horrifying just low they’re going.
Democrats crossed a line with a disgusting, sick attack against Ron DeSantis.
Critics of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis jumped to biased assumptions and accused him of taking time off when he accompanied his wife to a cancer treatment on Wednesday.
Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings started the attack by suggesting that the governor had abandoned Florida during Omicron which is a milder variant of the coronavirus.
“Our residents, all Florida residents should be outraged, and they should ask the question, ‘Now, where’s our state? Where’s our governor?’” Demings said. “Where is Ron DeSantis now? When was the last time you saw the governor do a press briefing regarding COVID-19?”
DeSantis had taken his wife to a cancer treatment that day, a spokesman for DeSantis’ office told Fox News.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who’s worked remotely for the last month, also criticized DeSantis for not being present.
“Hasn’t Gov. DeSantis been inexplicably missing for like 2 weeks? If he’s around, I would be happy to say hello. His social media team seems to have been posting old photos for weeks,” she posted on Twitter after DeSantis’ campaign mocked her for partying, maskless, at Miami Beach.
“In the meantime, perhaps I could help with local organizing. Folks are quite receptive here,” she added before touting New York’s COVID-19 response. “I’d also be happy to share some notes from @GovKathyHochul’s work in NY since he seems to be in need of tips!”
A Democrat challenger in this year’s gubernatorial race also tried to leverage the fact that DeSantis took time to accompany his wife to her cancer treatment to her own political advantage.
“As governor, I’ll show up,” Democrat Nikki Fried tweeted.
Any of these people could have checked DeSantis’ public schedule and seen that while he didn’t have any public events in the last week, he had numerous calls and meetings.
It’s just a cheap attempt to make DeSantis look bad.
DeSantis and his wife announced her breast cancer diagnosis in October.
“I am saddened to report that Florida’s esteemed First Lady and my beloved wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer,” DeSantis said at the time. “As the mother of three young children, Casey is the centerpiece of our family and has made an impact on the lives of countless Floridians through her initiatives as First Lady.
“As she faces the most difficult test of her life, she will have not only have my unwavering support but the support of our entire family, as well as the prayers and well wishes from Floridians across our state,” he added. “Casey is a true fighter, and she will never, never, never give up.”
