Ron DeSantis is wildly popular with Republican voters nationwide.
Democrat politicians frequently take cheap shots at DeSantis to try and bolster their own status among left-wing voters.
And New York City’s left-wing Mayor just picked a fight with Ron DeSantis that he will live to regret.
Democrats have used Ron DeSantis as a political punching bag over his refusal to follow Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci’s tyrannical COVID rules and mandates.
But with the pandemic now over and life returning to normal across America, Democrats are still going after Ron DeSantis with guns blazing.
Their latest attacks against DeSantis were over his support for the Parental Rights in Education bill.
Even though the legislation simply prohibits the teaching of gender and sexuality to children in kindergarten through third grades, the Democrats falsely labeled it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill and then proceeded to attack it as “hateful” to the LGBT community.
Everyone on the Left from Hollywood actors to the CEO of Walt Disney viciously attacked Ron DeSantis for signing the legislation into law.
However, despite the Democrats and corporate-controlled press’s phony “Don’t Say Gay” narrative, multiple polls show that a majority of Americans support the new Florida law.
This includes 55 percent of Democrats.
But many on the Left, such as New York City Mayor Eric Adams, are politically tone deaf.
And Mayor Adams just announced that his office was launching digital ads in five Florida markets aimed at attracting residents who are offended by the Parental Rights in Education bill to move to New York City.
“We have a message for Florida’s LGBTQ+ community: come to a city where you can be you. Join us now at City Hall,” Mayor Adams posted on Twitter.
“BREAKING: @NYCMayor announces a new digital billboard campaign in five Florida markets denouncing the hateful #DontSayGay law and inviting Floridians to move to New York,” Adams’ office wrote.

Of course, several critics were quick to point out the irony in Adams’ inviting Floridians to move to New York City.
Ron DeSantis’ spokeswoman, Christina Pushaw, mocked Adams in a brutal reply to his original tweet announcing the ads.
“Good to see Mayor Adams has solved all of NYC’s problems in such a short period of time,” Pushaw replied. “Surging violent crime, drugs, gangs, homelessness, extremely high cost of living, covid & covid restrictions like masking toddlers… all fixed, I guess!” she concluded.
Pushaw also ripped Mayor Adams for establishing a “covidian dictatorship” in New York City during the pandemic.
“Today, @NYCMayor held a press conference to beg Floridians to move to NYC, after half the city moved to Florida to escape covidian dictatorship. At the presser, a city employee (& mom) asked the mayor why NYC is still masking toddlers. She was promptly fired. Can’t make this up.”

Pushaw is correct.
The data shows the New York state residents are fleeing the harsh regulations and moving to the Sunshine State in droves.
In the last three years of the 2010s, an average of more than 60,000 New Yorkers moved to Florida each year, compared to fewer than 24,000 Floridians moving to New York state during the same time period.
Not only that, but multiple New York politicians, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, were caught dining maskless in Florida during the pandemic while New Yorkers were locked down and subject to mask and vaccine mandates.
Like all previous attacks, Adams’ attempt to smear Ron DeSantis over the Parental Rights in Education bill will only make him more popular with voters nationwide.
