DeSantis On ‘Monkey This Up’ Remark — ‘Has Zero To Do With Race’
Rep. Ron DeSantis clarified his “monkey this up” comments claiming he didn't mean anything

These Democrats have nothing to run on, so they are hanging on to every Republican’s word or action to demonize them in public.

Rep. Ron DeSantis clarified his “monkey this up” comments claiming he didn’t mean anything by using the term. DeSantis’ Democratic opponent who happens to be black will no doubt try to use this in the upcoming weeks to his advantage.

To be honest, Rep. DeSantis needs to be more cognizant of what he’s saying, and not spew the first thing that comes to his mind.

“Did you in any way or do you in any way think that that was something misstated or racist in any way?” Hannity asked. “Because that’s what they’re implying.”

“It has zero to do with race, Sean. It has everything to do with whether we want Florida to continue to go in a good direction, building off the success or do we want to turn to leftwing, socialist policies, which will absolutely devastate our state?” DeSantis responded. “And here’s the thing, I believe people should be judged based on their ability and character regardless of race. But it’s because of that that I know that socialism won’t work in Florida. It’s not good for any race, color or creed. So this is not about race. This is about ideas and principles.

And I’m not going to let the Democrats and Andrew Gillum try to obscure a debate about whether his tax increases, his single-payer healthcare plan, his desire to abolish ICE whether that is something that is acceptable for Florida. I don’t think it is and I don’t care what color you are.”

I will accept DeSantis at his word, but seriously, he didn’t have to say what he said. He easily could have said let’s not “screw this up.” All of us know this to be true.
