Desperate, Deranged DeSantis Devolves Into Dumb Troll

He’s doing whatever it takes to keep the trolls on his side but he’s demeaning himself in the process—and they’ll still eat him alive eventually.

At this point, I almost don’t know whether to view Ron DeSantis with contempt—or pity.

On the one hand, he is a terrible governor who is failing his leadership course with flying colors. Driven only by politics and naked ambition, he pursues reckless policies that divide Floridians and may even put them in danger. Case in point: the governor’s plan to challenge in court the Biden administration’s new vaccine rules for private businesses with 100 or more employees, which are supposed to take effect on Jan. 4.

It’s not just mandates or supposed overreach by the feds; the governor’s new surgeon general, who leads the state’s department of health, has echoed his boss by offering anecdotes and invoking conspiracy theories to question the efficacy of the vaccines themselves. The doc even argued that what’s really “bad for health” isn’t rejecting the vaccine, but firing people who refuse to take it. What happened to “First, do no harm?”

And it’s not just COVID-19. DeSantis is also distracted by federal issues like immigration, to the point where he often neglects his responsibilities in Tallahassee. DeSantis has all but declared Florida to be a border state, pushing back against President Biden’s immigration policies with the force that one might expect from governors of Texas or Arizona.

I'm not conflicted on whether to view DeSantis with contempt or pity; I view him with utter contempt.

1. He is directly guilty of mass murder. No sympathy here--anymore than for Trump.

2. Pity, why would anyone pity Death Sentence?

He's a stupid right wing rich fuck who only cares for himself and other rich - in other words just like a legion of idiot R's, only worse in DS's case.

3. Henry McMaster

is following in De Santis' footsteps. It's not about the good of the people, it's all about getting re-elected by the overwhelming numbers of Trumpian zombies in South Carolina. South Carolina's "leaders" are following the dumb as dirt herd.

5. Just for the record...

The Democrat who ran against him ended up in a Florida motel room so drunk he actually could not speak, he was with a male prostitute and a doctor with a suspended license. The sex worker was overdosing on meth and had to be hospitalized, the "doctor" was of no help, except he probably administered the meth by injection. Andrew Gillum was too drunk to even make a statement.
Obviously, we need help in Florida...
