LOL: Ron DeSantis roasts Gavin Newsom's obsession with Florida while California is literally hell
It's no secret Governor Newsom has particular disdain for Governor Ron DeSantis. When he isn't taking vacations while a devastating blizzard pummels his state, he's tweeting about the Florida governor. Specifically how he's better than the Florida Governor.
So DeSantis decided to pay him a little visit yesterday. And it was glorious.
DeSantis spoke at the Ronald Reagan Library in Southern California with the Orange County GOP, and took the opportunity to roast his California critic: "I know you've got a lot of problems out here, but your governor is very concerned about what we are doing in Florida... so I figured I had to come by."

“We’ve witnessed a great American exodus from states governed by leftist politicians imposing leftist ideologies and delivering poor results. And you can see massive gains in states like Florida, who are governing according to the tried and true principles that President Reagan held dear."
He also explained Florida's education policies that Newsom has heavily criticized. Particularly that children should not be force-fed gender identity at elementary schools. The horror.
\u201cChildren should be taught to accept themselves as God made them. Schools should not lie to kids that they can choose their own gender.\n\nAnd it should NOT be controversial to say this. \ud83d\udc47\ud83d\udc47\ud83d\udc47\n\nhttps://t.co/D9e9KvtH0P\u201d— DeSantis War Room \ud83d\udc0a (@DeSantis War Room \ud83d\udc0a) 1678061446
\u201cFL signs into law the \u201cDon\u2019t Say Gay\u201d bill.\n\nTX wants to open child abuse investigations into families that provide gender-affirming care to trans children.\n\nTN pulls funding from schools that allow transgender students to play sports.\n\nAnd we wonder why there\u2019s a rise in hate?\u201d— Gavin Newsom (@Gavin Newsom) 1655217916
Interestingly, DeSantis's trip took place exactly one year out from the California presidential primary, prompting rumors that we'll see a Desantis-Newsom match-up in 2024.
Newsom responded to DeSantis's visit with a statement that welcomed him to the "real freedom state," and read, "Just look at the data — California residents are safer, healthier, and more prosperous than those unfortunate enough to have you as their governor. Oh, by the way, you’re going to get smoked by Trump.”
Yeah Floridians, come to the REAL freedom state, where you can *checks notes* be forced to stay in your home for years on end due to a respiratory virus, get robbed bi-weekly, and dodge human feces on your morning walk. What's freer than that?
