Navy document debunks DeSantis' "Top Gun" image.


?s=20


Tommasina Says Prosecute Insurrectionists NOW 💙🌻
@TommasinaResist FOIA request by @JimLaPorta produces this Navy document showing DeSantis was an assistant urinalysis coordinator in the Navy. Not a fighter pilot, as he claimed.

An ASSISTANT coordinator. Not even the top urine analyzer.

Yes indeed.

and he had direct contact with detainees at Guantanamo. There are reports that he personally supervised torture of the detainees there, which if true is a whole lot worse than claiming to be a fighter pilot. https://www.floridabulldog.org/2023/01/ron-desantis-accused-torture-at-guantanamo-when-he-was-navy-jag/

a person who shouldn't be trusted with authority over anyone, much less prisoners at Guantanamo.

Some reporter, ask him about this at a press conference.

Could even have some fun with it by asking, “in your analysis, sir….”

When I was on active duty, that was one of my collateral duties. By regulation it had to be an officer or senior petty officer.

Not a big deal.
