Ron DeSantis Says California Treats Citizens Like Peasants

(PresidentialInsider.com)- Last week, that oafish, hair-gelled governor of California, Gavin Newsom, released a campaign ad attacking Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis.

Why?

Who knows?

Maybe Gavin Newsom is getting an early jump on the 2024 presidential election by attacking the guy he thinks will be the Republican nominee.

Or maybe he’s just delusional.

Either way, it’s pretty ballsy for a governor that sent his state into the toilet to attack another governor who has turned his state into an economic powerhouse.

Last Friday during a press event in Cape Coral Florida, a reporter asked Governor DeSantis for his thoughts on the ridiculous claims Newsom made in the ad that Florida wasn’t a free state. Newsom then invited Floridians to relocate to the “free state” of California.

The assembled audience and the governor laughed at the notion, mostly because it’s laughable.

DeSantis noted how everybody wants to talk about him and his state while he’s “just sitting here, little ole me, doing my job.”

DeSantis said having been born and raised in Florida, he “rarely if ever saw a California license plate” in the state “until the last few years.” Now, he added, you see a lot of California plates.

“I can tell you,” he said, “if you go to California, you ain’t seeing many Florida license plates.”

DeSantis called out Newsom’s hypocrisy for locking down California while he enjoyed “extravagant dinners at the French Laundry.” DeSantis added that Newsom was rubbing “his citizens’ noses in the fact that he was treating them like peasants.”

DeSantis said it is telling that families are willing to uproot their lives in California to move across the country to Florida. He said it is hard to drive people out of a state as beautiful as California, but because of the state’s terrible governance, “they’re finding a way to do it.
