GREG GUTFELD: Media strategy, as always, is to demonize Republican candidates
NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
So Ron DeSantis has announced his candidacy, which means it’s time for:
“Ron DeSantis is right on target.”
Don’t applaud. That was awful. I said to Gene, “Make it bad.” Mission accomplished. This is what happened during an audio stream with Elon Musk on Twitter. But there were technical glitches that prevented the Florida governor from speaking for about 25 minutes, prompting Biden’s press team to ask, “How can you put these glitches on our way?” Musk has since reached out to those responsible dealt with…
But the conversation eventually got going and lasted about an hour. We’re going to take a break now to listen to everything.
RON DESANTIS: Well, I’m running for President of the United States.
TWITTER SPACES keeps crashing during Desantis 2024 announcement
OK, that’s enough. This isn’t the first time I’ve promised an hour and finished in seconds. I do not know what that means. Later, Ron stopped by shortly after to chat with our pal Trey Gowdy, despite their disagreements about what makes a good haircut. You know, I’m starting to think that Trey doesn’t go to the barber’s, he just sticks his head in the world’s biggest pencil sharpener. But I’m wondering, Ron, do we know if the country is on the wrong track?
RON DESANTIS, MAY 24: We know the country is on the wrong track. We see it with our eyes. We feel it in our bones. We see the border being overrun. We see crime ravaging the cities. We see the federal government making it harder for families to make ends meet, and we have a President who is a listless ship.
Hmm, “listless?” That’s so untrue. Biden has many lists. look at this one I’ll read it: put on shoes after socks. Do not put on socks after shoes. Only shake hands with real people. The person named Jill is your wife. But DeSantis is making it clear that our country is off track — something Biden and his friends will never admit, even as trains literally go off track. Joe treats gaffes the way he treats unplanned grandchildren: as if they never happened.
But Ron had better prepare to rant, because the media and Democrats see him not only as a major threat, but as an evil. And their mouths are foaming like Kevin Spacey watching a little league game. I do not get it. Vanity Fair came up with this headline: “Ron DeSantis to Officially Announce His 2024 Bid with Elon Musk Because David Duke Apparently Wasn’t Available.”
In fact, as a reference to David Duke, it’s almost as irrelevant as Vanity Fair. But that shows you that all of these white supremacists are a web of fantasies, while the only ones the media can actually relate to are losers from decades ago.
And failed presidential candidates also have their say. This old clam tweeted, “Ron DeSantis’ Ultra-MAGA Florida is not safe for people of color, LGBTQ+ people, or even multi-billion dollar corporations.” Is it safe? I bet that’s probably safer than supposedly being a former girlfriend of Hillary’s.
So it’s more like the same lie that goes back to Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” law. Remember DeSantis signed? Remember the Don’t Say Gay bill, but note:
ACTOR 1: Cheerful. Cheerful. Cheerful. Cheerful. Cheerful. Cheerful. Cheerful.
ACTOR 2: Don’t say gay, Bill.
ACTOR 1: Oh.
Actually that never happened. The bill could have read, “Florida residents get free rainbow penis pouch bikinis and a box of Bud Lights,” and the media would still say it was anti-gay because, as always, their strategy is to demonize. See, even if you think Ron is Trump, without the drama, it won’t matter. With the help of the media, they create the drama and then they blame you. It’s like they set their own hair on fire and then call you an arsonist.
DESANTIS ARGUMENTS TRUMP’S ATTACKS SHOW ‘HE UNDERSTANDS I AM THE CANDIDATE THAT CAN BEAT HIM’
So it’s foolish to think it will be less controversial with a non-Trump candidate. They are labeled evil from the start, which then allows them to commit all crimes. Heck, they’ll even rig an election if they fight Hitler.
Here’s today’s CNN headline: “Why DeSantis is as Dangerous as Trump — or More Dangerous.” See that? And here we were told that Trump was an existential threat. So is DeSantis an additional existential threat? How is that possible? He’s not just evil, he’s a doubly secret super MAGA villain. Poor CNN, just like Jeffrey Toobin, they screwed themselves up. If you don’t say DeSantis is as bad as Trump, that’s an endorsement for DeSantis. And when you say he’s worse than Trump, you’re exposing your past hysteria for what it was, bastard. So expect more from it.
THE BREAKFAST CLUB: It’s obvious that Ron DeSantis is a white supremacist, right?
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: I don’t want to reject you I can’t help it… Why don’t you like people of color? What’s wrong with American history? What’s wrong with gays?
JOY REID: This is not a freedom agenda. This is an act Ron DeSantis tells you, the state owns your agenda.
As you can see, demonization is on the rise, sprinting like a trans girl at a high school track meet. And you don’t have to be Trump or even White. Check out the new candidate Tim Scott.
JOY BEHAR: He’s one of those guys who, you know, is like that Clarence Thomas, Black Republican who believes in pulling himself together rather than, I believe, understanding the systemic racism faced by African Americans in this country and other minorities. He doesn’t understand. Neither does Clarence, and that’s why they’re Republicans.
Thank you for telling us what it’s like to be black in America, you 80-year-old white witch who once wore a black face. Oh yeah, she’s ugly no matter what color she is. But to be a white woman lecturing black men on how to be black takes real guts. Maybe she does.
Bottom line: If the Republicans have any plans to win, they’ll have to compete like Larry Kudlow in nude volleyball. What a picture, right?

But don’t pretend these never-trumpers will just rejoin the group when Trump is out of the picture, no. They still hate you for liking Trump.
So if you’re hoping for a quieter choice, don’t kid yourself. They want to destroy you as much as the candidates. Maybe they want you dead because then they could count on you voting democratically.
