Florida Governor Ron DeSantis fired back on Wednesday during an appearance on Fox news after his upcoming opponent in this fall’s elections, Charlie Crist, insulted his supporters. Crist claimed that DeSantis’s voters ‘have hate in their hearts.’ Crist won the Democratic Nomination for Governor on Tuesday.

As Fox News reports:


Crist called DeSantis “Anti-Freedom Ron” and claimed the incumbent “doesn’t respect your freedom if you’re African-American” before declaring “those who support the governor should stay with him and vote for him and I don’t want your vote. If you have that hate in your heart, keep it there.”

On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” DeSantis called Crist’s criticism of Floridian civilians “contemptible” and labeled him a political “chameleon” who has sought or been in public office most of his life.

“This is his fifth decade running for office. He’s a typical career politician,” DeSantis told host Tucker Carlson. “People support me because I kept the state open and protected their jobs. Charlie Crist wanted it locked down. So that’s not hate in their heart. They’re just appreciative that they had a governor who was standing up for them.”

During the remarks in which he criticized DeSantis voters, the Daytona Beach NBC affiliate quoted Crist as comparing himself to Abraham Lincoln when asked why he chose a restaurant as his first campaign stop.

When a democrat/democrat supporter has no basis for an argument, they routinely trot out the race/hate cards, and rapid test positive for resurgent TDS.
