Media Libs Screech at DeSantis Joking About Elon Endorsement: ‘African-American Support’

Fox News reporter Lindsey Kornick reported that Joy Reid and other liberal media figures found another reason not to support Florida’s governor. Ron DeSantis: when South African-born billionaire Elon Musk suggested he could support DeSantis for president in 2024, DeSantis said while he’s primarily focused on the 2022 gubernatorial election, he welcomes “support from African-Americans.” 

Tweets were filled with joyless joy 

Yvette Simpson, an ABC News reporter was in much the same boat as Trump with even worse language. 

Is there an irony in this? I don’t get it,” CNN commentator and “The View” co-host Ana Navarro wrote.

CNN legal analyst Norm Eisen tweeted, “I understand the ugliness of what he‘s doing here because I am a member of a minority too. We are not a punch line & neither are Black Americans. Jokes about skin color & physical features have no place. It is sickening. 

Pop star of the Eighties Richard MarxJust tweeted: “What an amazing tool!”

Washington PostJonathan Capehart, also of PBS/MSNBC was nearly speechless 

Mehdi Hasan (MSNBC) went for sarcasm, complete with an angry emoji to disapprove MSNBC viewers.

This might bring back memories of 2004’s presidential campaign. John Kerry’s wife Teresa Heinz Kerry was uber-rich and would inform black audiences she was African-American because she was Mozambique-born. It’s fair to say that the Democrats did not like it back then. They were “shuddered.”

PS. Jaime Harrison, DNC boss tweeted that DeSantis urgently needs Ex-Lax. Is that what you mean??
