Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s manhandling of pretty much all of the American left these past two years has been must-watch political theater. From the moment he opted to offer freedom to the citizens of his state rather than become a COVID panic-porn fascist, he’s been triggering Democratic politicians and the false narrative smear merchants in the mainstream media.
Much to the delight of those of us who are DeSantis fans, the idiots on the left keep coming back for more.
DeSantis got in on the recent Republican governor trend of sending illegal immigrants to areas run by Democrats by flying 50 of them to — and here’s the stroke of genius — Martha’s Vineyard.
That’s right, he sent them to the place where the liberal bleeding hearts are the bloodiest and full of the “migrants welcome” spirit.
The always overwrought progs in the tony resort community responded in a way that’s even a little nutsy for them. Ryan has the story:
The arrival of 50 illegal immigrants sent the island community full of ultra-wealthy residents, some of whom have served in the highest levels of U.S. government, into full-on emergency management mode, with Dukes County Emergency Management officials going as far as to declare the situation a “humanitarian crisis.” Seriously.
The county agency released the statement to update its progress on handling the “crisis” of finding enough room and resources for — gasp — 50 illegal aliens. There are likely enough guest houses alone on Martha’s Vineyard to hold several times that number.
DeSantis has a tremendous gift for exposing Democrats’ ineptitude and hypocrisy, both of which are on display here. Fifty illegals are a crisis? Come visit Arizona and see what we’re dealing with here, you paste-eating commies.
The Hypocritical Ninny Theater provided a lot of entertainment, though, as our own VodkaPundit chronicled here.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott found a new twist on goading the libs as well, shipping a couple of buses of illegals to Vice President Kamala Harris’s official residence.
The beauty of the DeSantis move is that he only sent 50 people, and it triggered the libs into reacting as if he’d flooded Martha’s Vineyard with thousands of illegals. He is fully aware of just how easily he pushes their buttons, and it is obvious that he greatly enjoys doing it. He’s Lucy, and the Dems are Charlie Brown trying to kick the football.
Imagine how much more fun DeSantis’s trolling of the Dems is going to be after he cruises to reelection and they have to start worrying about him running for president in 2024.
Good times, indeed.
