Azealia Banks
'He’s focused on the basic s**t.'

Gov. Ron DeSantis may be hollering “hip hop hooray” this morning, as rapper Azealia Banks sings his praises.

The rapper has yet to commit (as far as we know) to a rap version of the Governor’s 2022 campaign anthem “Sweet Florida,” but nonetheless dropped some bars to the London Guardian about how she feels “way safer” in DeSantis’ domain than in the liberal enclave of California.

“He’s focused on the basic s**t,” she said.

“There are elderly people in our country without walkers, who don’t have the money to get a septic tooth pulled. If we’re talking about divvying up health care funds, those situations should take precedence to facial feminization surgeries and stuff like that. I mean, I get it — but that’s a cosmetic surgery. Like, does your penis work? Can you pee? You’re not as in trouble as the older woman who can’t afford her dialysis. I think DeSantis is practical about a lot of things.”

While the Florida Governor is “focused on the basic (expletive deleted),” Banks can’t make the same claim about California, run by DeSantis’ Democratic foil, Gavin Newsom.

“Every which way I turn (in Los Angeles) there’s a Black Lives Matter sign, and then we’re watching swathes of Latino people die every day because they’re considered essential workers,” she said.

“There are no Latino Lives Matter signs. That’s not to negate any of the very real issues that Black people in America face, but in a rich state like California, in a neighborhood like Silver Lake — here’s Jenny with her f***in’ like” — she adopts a Valley girl accent — “biodynamic wine bar and her vegan cafe. She’s got a Black Lives Matter sign in the window, but sis, did you pay attention to papi who delivered the milk? Did he get a free cup of coffee? I had to go because I can’t do this — either COVID was gonna kill me, or depression. I’m going to f***ing Miami.”

    Uncle Tom’s sister up there singing praises to that far right cracker. Next thing you know he’ll be putting your kids in prison for life for a line of cocaine. Chasing you down over “Fentanyl Halloween Candy” and voting afterwards after they let you and changed their minds.

    The Tea Party is racist buddy you got it wrong like long dong. Get you some of that so called Fentanyl Halloween candy that they never found any of. Lied to scaremonger law and order. Rainbow Fentanyl for kids my azz. They make it bright colors so hopefully it DOESN’T get mistaken for something else. And lying Ron DeSanctimonious and rug muncher Ashley Moody saying it’s made that way for kids. Them crackers lie. Nothing more to government to them than tossing people in jail. Otherwise, they don’t give a flying fk.

    Speaking of frothing extremist “loons”: A Georgia woman’s health insurance denied her coverage for an IUD because of the “sanctity of life.” The new mom would have to pay out of pocket. The cost for an IUD without coverage? Two thousand dollars, which she could not afford. Again, the insurance company told her it was a “sanctity of life” issue.
