Seconds After Reporter Blindsides DeSantis – The Governor Sends Him Spinning with 3 Words

What’s Happening:

It’s pretty clear that Democrats are just as much afraid of Ron DeSantis as they are of Donald Trump. Both men as strong conservatives that plan on reversing Joe Biden’s socialist agenda. So, the liberal media is doing what it can to discredit DeSantis, terrified he might surge all the way into the White House.

DeSantis hosted an event recently in New Hampshire, a key primary state. He declined to take questions from the audience. Instead, he spent considerable time greeting voters, shaking their hands, and taking pictures with them. A reporter, possibly scared at all the love being shown, tried to blitz the governor. His response was brilliant.

From Fox News:

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, R., sharply dismissed a reporter asking why he wasn’t taking questions from voters while he was taking photos with members of the crowd during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, asking, “are you blind?” […]

“What are you talking about? Are you blind? Are you blind? People are coming up to me, talking to me whatever they want to talk to me about.”

This is pretty rich. DeSantis didn’t take questions during the event from the audience. But he spent time talking with everyone, as they came up to him afterward. A reporter tried to shame DeSantis for not taking questions.

So, DeSantis nailed him by saying, “Are you blind?” Obviously, voters could ask him questions one-on-one, which is much better they trying to get his attention during an event. DeSantis could give them his full attention when they came up to him.

Yet this liberal reporter wanted a reason to complain about the rising Republican candidate. DeSantis wasn’t putting up with it.

The Florida governor has long shown his disdain for the liberal media. He is quick to call out their dishonest tactics and deliberate manipulation of the facts. The liberal media has tried to distort his legislative victories in Florida, mislabeling bills he’s signed into law.

DeSantis never lets them get away with it. He calls the media on the carpet for their practices and does not bow to their tricks.

He shares that quality with Donald Trump, who has a reputation for torching the leftist media.

We can assume that the media will continue looking for new ways to attack DeSantis. It is unlikely the mainstream media will show neutrality to Republican candidates going into the 2024 Election. But something tells me DeSantis will be ready for them.

Key Takeaways:

  • A report complained that DeSantis did not take questions during an event.
  • The governor instead met with voters directly, talking with them afterward.
  • DeSantis dismissed the reporter’s complaint saying, “Are you blind?”
