    DeSantis: Washington Post "Smear Piece" Will Have Have No Impact, "We Don't Care What You Think Anymore"

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis responded to a 'Washington Post' article accusing his press secretary Christina Pushaw of violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act by being an unregistered agent at the time she represented the nation of Georgia.

    "I am not deterred by any smear piece by these legacy media outlets," DeSantis said at a news conference on Wednesday. "The only reason they’re attacking her is because she does a great job and she’s very effective at calling out their lies and their phony narratives."

    "Whenever they’re smearing somebody, you know that person is over the target. So they're scared of that," he said.

    "I would be much more concerned of my press secretary if 'The Washington Post' was writing puff pieces about her, then I would think something is wrong," DeSantis quipped.

    "I think what we need to understand is that these legacy D.C. and New York outlets - we don't care what you think anymore," the governor said. "We know you peddle narratives. We know you lie. We know you don’t care about the facts. And so you can try to smear me or anyone in my administration all you want to. All that’s going to do is embolden us to continue moving forward for the people in Florida."

    "I think it was a totally ridiculous attempted smear and it will have absolutely no impact on anything that we're doing in our office," DeSantis declared.​


    It is almost impossible to overstate what a bunch of unconscionable, completely unprincipled, lying liars that these media organizations and the people that work for them have become. It has gotten to the point that anything that they say that has even the possibility of being controversial, partisan or identifiable with one of their agendas has to be assumed from the outset to be false, rather than being assumed to be true. The lies and absurdly erroneous assertions that their presentations are constantly and dependably filled with have utterly discredited them. They are truly the masters of misinformation.

    Ron DeSantis is right on. Keep up the great work, Ron. We need a lot more leaders like you.

    Good job comrade. Building distrust in the system is the best way to take a country down.

    They built the distrust themselves. They are to blame.

    And let's be clear. They and this "system" are not trustworthy. They deserve to be distrusted.

    Was the accusation false at the time? If so, then why did she subsequently register as a foreign agent? Shouldn't folks in government follow the requirements prior to running or being appointed? Wouldn't the proper response from DeSantis have been "whoops, it was an oversight, it's been rectified".

    No, people in gov should not be subjected to requirements or laws or press or rules or norms... Trump demonstrated that today Republicans are entitled to not have to follow any of that because they have very special supporters.

    Did your handler write this first in crayon so you could understand it? Go back to your cartoons. at least they are more pleasing to look at.

    GOP supporters always attacking the source and its the same sad story every time they get caught cheating and lying.

    "Poor me its a smear campaign" cries the GOP and the simpleton, paste eating crowd buy it every time.

    DeSantis is the younger better version of Trump, I hope Disney issues an apology to the world for hiring insane people and letting them run so many franchises to the ground with their woke propaganda trash.... They can start by making a biopic about Trump....

    Standards for DeSantis and his Floridamen are so incredibly low.

    Are we talking presidential candidates or meth ridden truck stop whores?
