While Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) and his supporters love to say that he’s very different from failed former president Donald Trump, it turns out that in some ways, DeSantis is exactly the same as the disgraced ex-president.
Take, for example, comments DeSantis made today, which just so happens to be Presidents’ Day.
Appearing on Fox News, DeSantis attacked President Joe Biden for daring to visit our Ukrainian allies and reassert our support for them as they continue to battle against an illegal and immoral invasion by Russia and its terrorist leader, Vladimir Putin, remarking:
Ah yes, the old apples and oranges debate tactic, which only serves to prove what a completely unoriginal hack the Florida governor is.
DeSantis also mentioned fentanyl and Chinese balloons, adding this bit of red meat for the Fox viewers:
So Russia isn’t a problem? Putin isn’t a threat? Not to hear Ron tell it:
It’s not happening because President Biden has strengthened ties to our NATO allies and made it clear that if Russia even thinks of stepping one toe into a NATO country, he will bring hell down on himself and his country.
Ron DeSantis is the same as Trump in one important way that disqualifies him from ever being president: He’s a puppet for Putin. The entire GOP is in the Kremlin’s back pocket.
