The best Governor money can buy? New video claims donors are Ron DeSantis’ base

Desantiswatch
'Ron DeSantis will come to you if you've got enough cash.'

A new video from a group of the Governor’s fiercest critics contends Ron DeSantis is the “best Governor money can buy.”

DeSantis Watch, an independent third-party group that continues to spotlight what it sees as the Governor’s transactional nature, is out with a new send-up of infomercials that pretends to market Florida’s Governor like he’s a box of Ginsu knives.

“Ron DeSantis will come to you if you’ve got enough cash,” insists a cheerily voiced female narrator.

“Are you a billionaire or a wealthy corporation afraid you might have to pay your fair share of taxes or stop polluting our planet? Are you a massive utility company that wants to continue to gouge your locked-in customers for all they’re worth? Ever wanted to play a round of golf with a politician who believes he’s going to be president one day? Have we got a deal for you,” reads the DeSantis Watch summation of the concept for this nearly two-minute video.

The snark continues in the clip.

“While this Governor of Florida was formerly owned solely by one resident of Palm Beach, he’s now on the market for anyone with a large enough bank account to make a down payment on his presidential ambitions,” the narrator contends.

The spot goes on to spotlight how five-figure donations can score supporters a round of golf with the Governor and other such considerations.

“For just a small portion of your astronomical net worth, Ron DeSantis will take away your freedoms to keep the fat cats happy,” the narrator enthuses.

“Floridians are dealing with an affordability crisis that has rents skyrocketing, property insurance rates going through the roof, and utility bills that have doubled in some places, but Ron doesn’t care, he’s too focused on himself and the donors fueling his political ambitions,” said DeSantis Watch Constituencies Director Natasha Sutherland.

“Ron DeSantis loves to spend time with his billionaire buddies and collect checks from his wealthy corporate donors, so we are happy to provide them with this valuable infomercial on what they can expect in return. Act now though: the DeSantis governorship ends in November!”

      It’s a big mistake to respond to anything Tom posts. He’s an arrogant ignorant uneducated Trumpster hack simply looking for the attention he doesn’t get from friends or family. Tom is all about personal attacks and lying. Tom will never allow truthful facts get in the way of his continuous fake news story line! Tom makes stuff up as he types. Just like his hero figures Trump and childish Madison Cawthorn, Tom vacillates in a cesspool of absurd self-grandiose magical thinking. Do yourself and ALL OF US a big favor. Ignore all of his return comments. Maybe the internet troll will go away.

          So much so FP would turn off the comments.

      This is the absolute truth. Since Florida runs on low salary, insecure jobs, more residents live one paycheck away from financial destitution than any other state with such a rich revenue stream. Florida was the bellwether of that crisis during the housing bubble with the most foreclosures, evictions and job losses. Florida also saw the longest food pantry lines in the US during the Covid pandemic and desperation due to a failing unemployment system. DeSantis chooses to ignore the issues of rising housing, utility and insurance prices, and has decided to give the money away to the highest donors, forcing those service workers to move out of state.

      “stop Trump witch-hunting committee” is Desantis and his ELITE DONORS! They include forced-birth religious extremists who want to turn back the clock on women’s rights. These people want to stop what they call the “contraceptive mentality” and control what they call “inappropriate sexual behavior”. No contraceptives and total abortion ban. Look up his donors…see for yourself what they think of you!

    Why is Florida responding to the teacher shortage by lowering professional standards in the classroom? Why is Florida hiring college dropouts with two years of college to fill vacancies? Florida has about 9,000 vacant teaching positions in schools across the state, according to the most recent data from the Florida Department of Education.

    While Florida has paid lip service to increase starting salaries, the state ranks 48th in the nation when it comes to average teacher salaries, according to an April report by the National Education Association. The teaching environment here is also worsening, as DeSantis and other Republicans have made grade schools and universities the latest battle grounds in partisan culture wars. Qualified teachers are professionals and certainly don’t want to be looking over their shoulder for the next unhappy legislator or parent ready to sue for financial gain.

    FLORIDA IS SUFFERING FROM 20 YEARS OF FAILED REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP.

    VOTE ALL REPUBLICANS OUT OF OFFICE!

    Have you noticed how Republicans ARE NOT TALKING about one of their national party achievements?

    That’s right! Since Reagan, Republicans have been tirelessly stacking the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade. Every single Republican is anti abortion and pro life. Many Republicans including Justice Thomas object to contraception!

    Why are Republicans not campaigning on this tremendous win?

    Here in Florida there is no exception for rape or incest! ….. and just wait to see what DeSantis has waiting for Florida residents after the midterms!

    Republicans are America’s problem. Floridians …. don’t give DeSantis another four years of his culture wars.

      August 30, 2022 at 5:09 pm

      Desantis vetoed contraceptives for low income women. He thinks birth control aborts a zygote, and he wants to protect “life” beginning at conception. But he doesn’t feel any responsibility to protect your ten year old daughter. He has no compassion for rape or incest victims. Ron’s cruelty and lack of morals aren’t what Florida needs in a governor.

  • marylou

    August 29, 2022 at 5:00 pm

    Small contributions for Desantis are only 6% compared with 54% for Trump. Desantis is trying to fool Trump voters. Here he is imitating the way Trump stands, in order to get voters to subconsciously see him as equal to their Orange Idol: https://twitter.com/fightontwist/status/1561803608542556160

    Incredibly, ignorance is bliss with all four of the soros Manchurians. Peter H, Joey Corsin, Don’t look and Mary “abortion butcher” who, what a crock of Adam Schiff.

    Yes, you all are abortion on demand. 9th month, and after birth. 49 Dem senators shorted that.
    Really you want to defend it? You losers.

    Peter H, just like the mono centers that he uniquely and creatively opened unlike blue state tyrant Govs. As Cuomo was busy writing a book off of dead people and grabbing ovaries. He is opening up the process that’s been shut down. The legislature voted for the veterans. Dems too. Several states have a greater shortage. It’s called Covid. Florida is far from the highest. He is addressing it. Do you think the Biden/Faucci shot policy had anything to do with it. Ronnie said no shots. You are all a bunch of whiners.

    Mary who, you are deranged. The soros talking points are wearing thin. Just go abort after birth.

    Get this straight, chameleon and his neophyte laborer who got her ass kicked Tuesday by America’s Govs candidates, are going to lose bigly. Enjoy it. That’s what Cuomo told his women.
