Democrats have an unquenchable bloodlust for anyone they view as a threat to the ruling class elites and their woke extremist agenda.
Few represent a bigger threat to both than the Governor of Florida.
And Ron DeSantis could not stop laughing after Florida Democrats invented this new insane reason to attack America’s Governor.
Democrats’ new conspiracy theory
This past week, a sizeable portion of the country was plagued by severe storms; some even experienced tornadoes that brought high winds and plenty of rainfall.
The Florida panhandle was among the areas hit hardest by the storm, causing Governor Ron DeSantis to declare a state of emergency in 49 of the state’s counties.
In fact, as DeSantis was finalizing the emergency declaration, Politico reported that tornado sirens began blaring throughout the state Capitol complex as multiple tornadoes touched down across the state, and winds hit speeds up to 70 MPH.
The Governor, who left the Presidential campaign trail to ensure he could help lead the state through the storms, had his hands full dealing with the state’s response.
But in the midst of all the chaos putting millions of Floridians in danger, Democrats apparently saw the perfect opportunity to once again launch all sorts of nonsensical attacks against Governor DeSantis.
In response to DeSantis’ emergency declaration, the Florida Democrat Party took to X to chastise the Republican Governor for his, wait for it, inability to control the weather.
You really cannot make this stuff up.
“After severe storms, and even some tornado activity, rocked the Sunshine State, DeSantis declared a State of Emergency,” The Daily Wire reported. “Florida Democrats responded with a post on X that seemed to blame the Republican governor for failing to stop the storms, suggesting that he was a hypocrite for supporting environmental protection.”
“Ron: ‘We must protect our environment and the great outdoors,’” Florida Democrats wrote on X along with pictures of the damage caused by the storms. “Florida right now: #StateoftheState.”

In response to the post, DeSantis’ rapid response director Christina Pushaw pointed out that Florida Democrats want Florida to be more like California, a state where wildfires engulf entire towns, and asked whether that was California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom’s fault as well.
“You want to turn Florida into California, where entire towns burned to the ground due to uncontrolled wildfires,” Pushaw shot back. “Was that Gavin Newsom’s fault or is it only Republican politicians who can control the weather?”
In a separate post, Pushaw reposted Florida Democrats’ post and mocked the fact that “Democrats think ‘protect our environment’ means ‘pay us more taxes and we will stop tornadoes from happening. pinky promise!’”

DeSantis Press Secretary Jeremy Redfern also got in on the action, blasting Democrats for attempting to exploit every tragedy for political gain.
“Florida Democrats are not okay,” Redfern wrote on X. “They’ll turn any tragedy into a political talking point. Anyway … Earlier today, @GovRonDeSantis signed an Executive Order to ensure there are no unmet needs as severe weather continues to move across Florida. Stay safe out there, everyone.”
There truly is no low Democrats will not stoop to if they believe it will somehow help them or hurt their opponents politically.
