When even Fox condemns DeSantis' "Monkey this Up" comment


“A little while ago, we had Ron DeSantis, the Republican nominee for governor in Florida on for an interview to discuss the Florida election,” Smith said on Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” before reading a statement from DeSantis's campaign clarifying his earlier remarks.

"We do not condone this language and wanted to make our viewers aware that he has since clarified his statement," she added.

10. When you get down to it, all they have is "race" and "gender" ... and both are worn out now

They're playing by what they think is the old rule book.

Trump tore that book up 2 years ago and they haven't figured it out yet.

19. And the lefty "news" outlets

don't understand why normal rational people are leaving them in droves.

They think a candidate using a common non-racist expression will make voters want to have socialism rammed down their throats. They're not very good with logic.

34. Just keep screaming in our faces about how stupid we all are ... that'll change minds and hearts

Instead of even trying to empathize, they become more condescending and angry with each passing failed Trump "Gotcha". With their media cohorts leading the charge.

I'm actually starting to think the media are the defacto leaders of the Dims now. They've totally given up any pretense of objectivity or neutrality.

29. Don't try to change the context

Here's the context: A FL GOP candidate warned the voters not to "Monkey this Up" by Electing a Black Democrat.

I don't know if it was deliberate or just a poor choice of words. DeSantis isn't stupid. He is a Yale AND Harvard graduate, he should know better. He opened his mouth and stuck his foot in.

But, It will all blow over.

22. How come you didn't print the rest of what FOX said? Hmmmmmm?

You are so dishonest. Do you think one single Trump vote actually CARES what the lackeys on Fox say? At least put the whole story out there. Every day you're on here with "Fox" said or "some republican" said... gosh, will you Trumpers listen to them? Gasp. Whine. Whine. You're wasting your time.

NOBODY CARES WHAT THE FOX SAYS.

Anyway, the rest of the article...

DeSantis's campaign said in a later statement reported by Fox News and obtained by The Hill that it was "absurd" to claim the Florida Republican was doing anything other than criticizing Gillum's agenda.

“Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses,” DeSantis communications director Stephen Lawson said in the statement.

“To characterize it as anything else is absurd,” Lawson added. “Florida’s economy has been on the move for the last eight years and the last thing we need is a far-left democrat trying to stop our success.”

Who knew that the word " monkey " was so explosive ?

Lefties are jumping to misconstrued conclusions.

I hope Lefty gives us the "Official Banned Words list soon.
