(RepublicanWire.org) – Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has become a favorite target for the ladies who host the super liberal television program “The View,” slamming him repeatedly for how he handled the coronavirus pandemic, his parental rights in education bill, and for basically any reason they can find.
Well, apparently, they extended him an offer to come on their show and DeSantis flat out rejected it, in very brutal fashion.
DeSantis is a man of values and principles who stands up for what he believes and simply does not allow himself to be intimidated by the radicals on the left. Which is one of many reasons why they hate him.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, Bryan Griffin, the deputy press secretary for DeSantis, stated on Monday that the governor was given an invite to the program.
“Griffin said the show wrote that they ‘would be honored’ to have DeSantis on for an interview. He released the email DeSantis’ team sent back to the show on Tuesday morning declining their offer,” the report said.
“Are the hosts of The View really interested in hearing from Governor DeSantis about all of the important work he is doing on behalf of Floridians to protect their health and livelihoods, to stand up for parents and children, and to defend freedom?” the email stated. “Which of the below statements from the hosts of The View do you recommend our team consider when deciding if the interview will be a genuine pursuit of the truth? Or worth the time?”
The email then went on to list several different comments from the show’s co-hosts that reveal they have a very strong level of bias and hostility toward the governor.
Joy Behar, August 2021: “You’re just short of calling [Governor DeSantis] a negligent, homicidal sociopath, because that’s what he is.” She added: “What is he doing? He’s risking the lives of children, children’s parents, their grandparents, anyone they may come into contact with, so he can appeal to his white supremacist base, so he can continue in his career and get reelected.”
Sunny Hostin, June 2022:” Death-Santis … I think he’s a fascist and a bigot.”
Ana Navarro, April 2022 (on Governor DeSantis’s policies): “It’s anti-black, it’s anti-gay, it’s anti-LGBTQ+ community. And for some reason, the Republican base responds to it.” And “It’s anti-American. It’s what happens in Venezuela. It’s what happens in Nicaragua.”
Sunny Hostin, February 2022 (on Governor DeSantis’s policies): “It started with CRT. Let’s remember that – and those are anti-history laws, anti-black history laws, really,” she said. “If you start coming after black people, what comes next, right? Of course the LGBTQ+ community, and then women, and then other marginalized groups.”
“We will pass on this offer,” the email wrapped up. “Also please note- we don’t coordinate appearances or events of a political nature from the official office. Our role is to serve the people of Florida.”
The DeSantis team was hailed online for how they handled the invitation, turning the words uttered by the show’s co-hosts and using it against them.
We all know that these ladies aren’t interested in holding a civilized conversation with DeSantis and holding a true, genuine debate on the issues facing our country. They have made that much clear by the very statements posted above.
