I don’t normally write about this type of story – but this one was just too good to pass up. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was posed a question which is worth considering when you don’t have anything else to do.
During a Wednesday interview, Florida’s Voice Founder and Editor-in-Chief Brendon Leslie asked DeSantis who he would rather be stuck on a deserted island with: President Joe Biden or Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). This was the toughest question you could ever ask any Republican politician in 2022.
DeSantis answered: “I mean, could I just end the misery right now and have my Maker call me back?”
“Who would you rather be stuck on a deserted island with – President Brandon, or AOC?”

Leslie then asked DeSantis, a former college baseball player, which team he’d rather play against. The choices were Tampa Bay’s Shane McClanahan or the mainstream media. DeSantis replied:
“Oh, I mean like — you know, look, I was a pretty good hitter in baseball — but the mainstream media, I mean, you know we know how to fight back against them and so I’m happy for that challenge any time they want to throw it to me.”
It was a fun exchange, and while DeSantis’ answer is understandable, it was the type of politician’s dodge to which America has become accustomed. I mean, why couldn’t he just answer the question? Trump could have just given an honest answer, I’m sure. Tsk tsk tsk.
Maybe we all should think about what we would choose in this situation. For my part, I’d choose AOC in a heartbeat. To the men reading this: Get your minds out of the gutter – it’s not for the reasons you’re thinking, you sick bastards. Besides, I’m already taken and my lady would throw me off the Empire State building with a millstone tied around my neck if I even came close to thinking such thoughts.
Talking with AOC is far better than hanging out at the biden table. I’d feel much less guilty laughing at Ocasio-Cortez’s silly meanderings than I would with the president, who is clearly in his twilight years. It’s so simple for her to write satirical tweets people can believe are real.
BREAKING NEWS: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez asserts that one of her officers “arrested her” whispered “this is MAGA Country,” as she led her off the stage.
Reporters were told that she was “not afraid to be a political prisoner because of the cause.”

Besides, after being a recent political prisoner after blocking traffic during a pro-abortion protest and her harrowing experience dodging hordes of angry Trump supporters during the Jan. 6 riot, I think it’s safe to say she’s a battle-hardened warrior type who could help me survive an ordeal like being stuck on a deserted island.
But that’s enough about me. Which one would you choose?
