‘Stop pussy-footing around:’ DeSantis Calls Out Gavin Newsom

Ron DeSantis recently zinged California Gov. Gavin Newsom, telling him to cut it with his public commentary regarding presidential candidates unless he enters the Democratic presidential primary.

 

DeSantis publicly called out Newsom during a press conference just days after Newsom told Fox NEws’ Sean Hannity that he would not be jumping into the 2024 presidential race “under any circumstances.”

“He has a real, serious fixation on Florida,” DeSantis said, referring to Newsom’s incessant focus on the Sunshine State and his actions as Governor. “I mean, I think it’s just bizarre that he does that.”

“What I would tell him is … stop pussyfooting around. Are you going to throw your hat in the ring and challenge Joe? Or are you going to sit on the sidelines and chirp? Why don’t you throw your hat in the ring, and then we’ll go ahead and talk about what’s happening.”

The answer also partially came as a response to Newsom challenging DeSantis to debate, a proposal DeSantis isn’t interested in sacrificing his time for if Newsom refuses to commit.

And Newsom has emphatically affirmed he will not be running, and in his interview with Hannity, the Golden State Governor made this clear.

“How many times does your phone ping a day people saying you need to get in this race because they agree with me that [Biden’s] not up for the job?” Hannity asked.

“I see where you’re going with that, Sean. And I’m not answering,” Newsom responded.

“Under any circumstances would you get in this primary?” the Fox News host pushed.

“No,” Newsom replied, claiming he’s proud of Biden’s performance and character.” Look, I really am proud – I think he’s a man of decency and character. I’m really proud of the president, proud of what he’s accomplished in the last three years.”

President Biden is currently fending off credible allegations that he took bribes from Ukranian Oil company Burisma while Vice President.

DeSantis also explained why Newsom’s fixation on Florida is so bizarre, noting that Newsom has plenty of problems in his state to worry about and does not need to focus elsewhere.

 

“It’s interesting. He’s got huge problems in his state… we all know that. you see it San Francisco, you see it in La, you see it in people fleeing. California, from its inception, gained population every single year until he became Governor. I mean, California was probably the height of opportunity for middle-class Americans for many many decades in this country. No one would leave there…people were drawn to there. And yet he’s the first Governor that’s overseen a massive exodus out of California.”

DeSantis went on to say that people are;t moving out of California in search of better weather but due to mismanagement of the state and “not being able to take it anymore.”
