OK Mr. DeSantis, Let's See Some Tapes

Surely since you use the phrase "monkey things up," there is some evidence of that. There are probably many videos/audio recordings, since you have said the term "monkey," before, so just provide ONE.

1. No one running for governor for a major electoral college state says this crap by mistake.

Same thing Obama had to deal with.

2. I've never heard anyone use "monkey"

in that context. It really jumps out at you.

3. Seems a GOP communications strategist didn't help matters either.



I think if Ron De Santis really wanted to go with an obviously racist hit straight after the primary, he should have said on live TV "I don't think Floridians want to elect a dude who looks like Obama and is aping Bernie Sanders."

4. he didn't want to say "fuck this up"

so his pea brain grabbed "monkey around" and mashed it together.

its revealing, but not deliberate.

6. So a trumpista candidate for Governor of Florida goes on Fox for an interview with no

knowledge of the questions he'll be asked and has not gone over them carefully with his handlers to prepare scripted answers?

7. Yes. He's an idiot. He's a Trumpist

but I repeat myself.

You think that was a deliberate dog whistle instead of a self-inflicted wound? It's possible, but Hanlon's Razor...

11. We know it's deliberate, how?

I'm speculating as to the most likely scenario that would cause a stupid Florida Trumpist to say something that dumb. To me, applying Hanlon's Razor, it's more likely a Freudian slip than a planned dog whistle.

No one KNOWS what goes on in other's minds.

5. He didn't mean to say "monkey".

He wanted to say”Macaca” - but it was already used.

8. My first thought, too, when I heard he supposedly uses that phrase often.

9. Why Do repukes Get Away With Shit Like This?

 

I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, if he can simply show himself saying that before. Video or Audio.

He fucking can't, which is why we'll never hear about it again. They will leave it at their comment, that he's said it before, and figure the electorate is dumb enough to buy it.

12. Because they have the entire right-wing media behind them, as well as

DU posters with over 10,000 posts who will make excuses for them
