Joe Scarborough told his co-hosts Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is a “narcotic” who uses strongman tactics while discussing the governor suspending a prosecutor who he said did not will enforce Florida’s anti-sex laws. affirming care of minors and abortions.
Scarborough said: “Maybe Donald Trump is on his way, maybe not, who knows? But I just have to say this, even the Republicans in Tallahassee are shocked by this strongman tactic by Ron DeSandis yesterday, who suspended an elected leader, suspended a state attorney general in Florida. For those of you who don’t know, the people elect them. Why did he suspend this guy? Because of what he thought, because of what he said. Not because of the actions he took. Even for thinking something and expressing those thoughts, Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, suspended an elected official, a state attorney from another party. It’s really, the strongman trend in the Republican Party is so scary.”
He continued, “What a dope. Ron DeSantis is such a dope. He didn’t even expect any action to be taken. And he’s doing the same thing that these freaks, the rebels and the weirdos are doing, who are endangering the lives of 10-year-old girls who have been raped.”
Scarborough added: “Ron DeSandis is doing all these crazy things in a state that, not too long ago, was a swing state, and he’s doing it by hurting Florida, going to war with Mickey Mouse, going to war with the gulf of Tampa. Rays, going to war with the voters of the state of Florida, canceling their votes for a guy who’s been elected twice now, all to appeal to, like, the 20% of Americans who might vote in the Republican presidential primary elections. It ‘s crazy.”
