Ron DeSantis: Top Dud
August 23, 2022
While Floridians struggle with sky-high housing prices and unaffordable health care costs, GOP Governor Ron DeSantis is putting out cringey ads about his grievances with the media instead of addressing the needs of his constituents. Let’s be clear: DeSantis is no “Top Gov” — he’s Top Dud.
DeSantis’s cringey ad comes as a 16-year-old girl is being forced to give birth in Florida thanks to a law DeSantis signed in 2020. DeSantis’s extreme agenda is nothing short of an assault on women’s rights.
NBC News: “A pregnant and parentless 16-year-old in Florida may be forced to give birth after an appeals court ruled she was not ‘sufficiently mature to decide whether to terminate her pregnancy.’”
DeSantis has also failed Florida kids by being the only governor in the country to refuse to pre-order COVID-19 vaccines for children under five — leaving parents scrambling to find shots for their little ones.
Washington Post: “Kids’ coronavirus vaccines are hard to find in Fla. Many blame DeSantis.”
DeSantis is no fighter pilot, but that hasn’t stopped him from jetsetting across the country to stump for extreme candidates like election deniers Kari Lake in Arizona and Doug Mastriano in Pennsylvania.
POLITICO: “DeSantis stumps for Mastriano in key battleground state”
Make no mistake about it: DeSantis has failed to meet his constituents’ needs. This political stunt is just the latest example of his inability to govern. The people of Florida deserve better from their leaders.
