Probable 2022 gubernatorial candidate, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, may want to start reading up on her history before she continues to bash Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the months leading up to her expected candidacy.
Fried’s latest tweet is so wrong, that there are “no words” for her ignorance.
“Governor Ron DeSantis is lowering Florida’s flags to half-staff for Rush Limbaugh,” tweeted Fried. “But he had no words for Congressman John Lewis. Priorities.”
Well, guess what? Wait for it….Wait for it…
Gov. Ron DeSantis did have have “words” to acknowledge the passing of civil rights leader and Rep. John Lewis (D). Remember, DeSantis runs Florida and does things that pertain to Florida and its citizens. Rush Limbaugh was a resident of Palm Beach, Florida, Rep. Lewis was a resident of Georgia.
Our state and nation mourn the loss of Congressman John Lewis, a civil rights icon whom I was honored to serve alongside in Congress. @FLCaseyDeSantis and I are keeping his family in our thoughts and prayers.

“Our state and nation mourn the loss of Congressman John Lewis, a civil rights icon whom I was honored to serve alongside in Congress. @FLCaseyDeSantis and I are keeping his family in our thoughts and prayers,” tweeted DeSantis back July, 18, 2020.
Fried’s reckless and desperate attacks against DeSantis need to be filtered before they go out. We like the fire in her belly, just wished that she would be smart enough to get her facts straight before opening up her big mouth.
.@GovRonDeSantis is lowering Florida's flags to half-staff for Rush Limbaugh.
But he had no words for Congressman John Lewis.
