Ron DeSantis Gets Standing Ovation for Response to Reporter

Ron DeSantis Gets Standing Ovation for Response to Reporter

(TargetLiberty.org) – The mainstream media have held a grudge against former president Donald Trump for a long time, and they’re still trying to pursue their vendetta even now. That went poorly for one reporter this week, when she threw Trump’s name at Florida’s governor – and got brutally smacked down.

On May 23, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) was challenged by a reporter who asked him if his recent bill to protect freedom of speech from tech giants was to help Trump. She reminded DeSantis that the former president has been de-platformed by several social media companies, and suggested that, now that he’s living in Florida, DeSantis was changing the law to assist him.

DeSantis dismissed it, saying the bill is to protect ordinary Floridians. Then he moved in for the kill – “when you de-platform the President of the United States but you let Ayatollah Khamenei talk about killing Jews, that’s wrong.”

The reporter didn’t say what she thought of that, but going by the applause, the audience loved DeSantis’ retort.
