The Left hates Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
But not everyone knew how much Democrats feared DeSantis.
And MSNBC threw a temper tantrum about Ron DeSantis that confirmed one important thing.
MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson melted down on the air at the mere mention of Governor DeSantis.
Despite the fact that Governor DeSantis’ approval ratings showed he was a popular Governor, Johnson claimed DeSantis was “terrible” and that since a majority of Floridians approved of DeSantis’ job that somehow proved it.
“Everybody knows he’s terrible,” he said. “If you look at his numbers in his own state, his approval is only 50%.”
Johnson then launched into a tirade about DeSantis signing the Parental Rights in Education Bill into law.
The common sense legislation prevented teachers from grooming young students into transgender lifestyles.
Johnson falsely claimed the law was “rampant bigotry” smearing DeSantis as supporting “proto-autocratic nonsense” and saying DeSantis’ appeal is centered on that of “bigots and wannabe fascists.”
Then Johnson gave the game away as to what this was really about was stopping Governor DeSantis from winning the White House in 2024.
“We have to recognize that this person cannot be discussed as a viable presidential candidate. He can’t be discussed as a popular governor because neither of those things appear to be true by the numbers right now,” Johnson declared.
Johnson then unfavorably compared DeSantis to Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp.
“Brian Kemp is more popular. Abbott, who can’t keep the lights on during a winter storm, is more popular in Texas,” Johnson added. “Ron DeSantis, for all the attention he gets . . . the guy is polarizing within his own state.”
Johnson would normally smear Kemp and Abbott as white supremacists.
But Kemp and Abbott are not threats to win the Presidency in 2024.
As such Johnson felt it was ok to claim they were “good” Republicans and slime Ron DeSantis as a bigot.
What Johnson and other Democrats fear about DeSantis is that DeSantis has shown the ability to fight back and win against the Left.
DeSantis saw a problem with woke ideology infecting schools so DeSantis swiftly moved to push the Parental Rights in Education Bill through the legislature.
The ability to effectively fight back scares leftists.
And that is why Jason Johnson pitched a fit on MSNBC about why Democrats must stop DeSantis from winning the Presidency.
