Ron DeSantis says Reince Priebus “taken to the cleaners” by CNBC

The always active media shop for GOP Senate candidate Ron DeSantis struck again on Thursday, with an email addressing the staging of the GOP Presidential debate on Wednesday.

“Last night’s debate illustrated the modus operandi of the elite liberal press: try to make Republicans look bad so that a Democrat can win the White House. It is no wonder why Americans don’t trust the mainstream media,” DeSantis said in a prepared statement, which soon thereafter got more interesting with a slam of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.

 “Chairman Priebus got taken to the cleaners by CNBC and the Republican Party can’t let this happen again,” DeSantis said. “All debates should feature a conservative media partner … to facilitate a discussion about limited government principles and policy solutions, not to provide a forum for liberal journalists to dump opposition research on the candidates or to ask gotcha questions.”

    De Santis should be smart enough to realize you can’t make something out of nothing. Propaganda doesn’t always win the day.

    The GOP will get their red meat base frothing at the mouth, then empty their pockets fundraising from the nonsense.

    They all act like is all so new to them and that they got the ‘If Kitty Dukakis was raped and murdered’ question.

    They didn’t like it when CNBC asked them questions.
    They didn’t like it when CNN asked them questions.
    They didn’t like it when FOX asked them questions.

    Apparently, the C in RNC must stand for ‘chronic complainers’….
