But their attacks are only making DeSantis more popular.
And Ron DeSantis just dropped the hammer on MSNBC’s Joy Reid for spreading “corporate media lies.”
On August 17, DeSantis proposed a $5,000 signing bonus to police officers from other states, as well as a proposal to make it easier for them to receive certification in Florida.
As usual, the Democrats and corporate-controlled media are outraged with DeSantis.
And during a recent episode of MSNBC’s The ReidOut, host Joy Reid viciously attacked and smeared Ron DeSantis for inviting police officers facing termination over Biden’s vaccine mandate to come and work in Florida.
“Since the beginning of this pandemic, many Republicans have walked a very fine line of kind of, sort of encouraging safety, while also fueling vaccine skepticism,” began Reid.
Reid then accused DeSantis of “offering COVID a one-way first-class ticket to his state” for offering “unvaccinated cops $5,000 bonuses to relocate to Florida and join police forces there.”
But Reid is misrepresenting DeSantis’ proposal.
And Ron DeSantis just set the record straight and called out Joy Reid for spreading “corporate media lies.”
The Daily Wire reports:
“The facts speak for themselves: Governor DeSantis announced this initiative back in August at the Fraternal Order of Police conference, as part of a package of proposals to recruit law enforcement officers from out of state.
Vaccine mandates weren’t part of the conversation back then, and vaccination status wasn’t mentioned at all in the governor’s announcement.”
As the Governor’s office pointed out, DeSantis’ offer had absolutely nothing to do with vaccination status.
“Assume what they tell you is false and then figure out why they’re telling you a false narrative,” DeSantis said about the corporate-controlled media’s lies.
Thanks to DeSantis’ leadership during the COVID pandemic, Florida’s economy is strong and its population is growing.
In fact, Florida added a new Congressional district after the results of the 2020 census because of the growth in population.
And Ron DeSantis’ proposal was more about bringing in seasoned police officers to better provide for the safety of his fast-growing state.
