 Fried Frying her campaign one Tweet at a Time

I’m not sure what has got into Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried lately, but her latest vulgar tweets are nothing more than concerning and outright stupid.

Could it be terrible political advice she is receiving?

Or, is it just her being desperate to garner whatever attention she can from the Progressive wing of the Florida Democratic Party?

Don’t get me wrong, I like Commissioner Fried. I defended her when Republicans freaked out over a picture she posted of her wearing a string bikini top.

I happen to like bikini tops. They are very American. Make America Great!

Fried is a smart politician and could make for a good Governor someday but in another election year.

The problem with her gubernatorial run is that she is running against Gov. Ron ‘Neon Dion’ DeSantis, who is not only trouncing her in fundraising but is so popular among Floridians, that it will be a heavy lift for Fried or any other Democrat to defeat him.

It’s not impossible to defeat Gov. DeSantis, but if you are a Democrat looking to oust him, give yourself a chance to win and quit saying and tweeting stupid crap.

Right now, Fried is the only one in the Democratic field of gubernatorial candidates who is “jumping the shark” by making personal attacks against DeSantis.

Democrats can be critical, even bash DeSantis, but show a little self-respect and don’t tread water in the political gutter.

The tweet calling DeSantis a “dic” went over as well as eating bad chili.

After we posted on it CLICK HERE, Fried decided to post a picture of DeSantis standing in front of a bunch of potatoes.

In other words, she backtracked and made a fat joke about DeSantis instead of owning up to the “dic” slight.

Lose, lose play for Fried.

You don’t see Senator Annette Taddeo and Rep. Charlie Crist doing this, right?


And Then There is Ben Frazier...

As the news broke that Long-time Jacksonville-area actives Ben Frazier was arrested for trespassing shortly before Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis held another Monoclonal treatment press conference in Jacksonville, prominent Democratic leaders like Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried and State Rep. Angie Nixon, referred to Frazier as “respected” as they protested his arrest. READ MORE

Shevrin “Shev” Jones-Ben Frazier is half of the people of Florida who want to speak with @GovRonDeSanti about his mishandling of #Covid_19. People, not just Mr Frazier, are frustrated, angry, and fed up! @GovRonDeSantis, owe it to #ThePEOPLE to calm their fears and anxieties, not ignore them.

Tracie Davis-The people of Jacksonville deserve answers, not arrest. Removing a community leader and former journalist from a public building is an outrageous show of force by our absentee governor.

Rep. Angie Nixon- I’m tripping because they didn’t even let him use his wheelchair to leave. Is this what we can expect of the Gov gets his own State Guards?

Alex Andrade-I thought it made a case to eliminate segregated “press areas” or “press rooms” LEOs issued their standard trespass warning like they do on a daily basis w/o guardsmen. I believe protecting press from potential violence or disruptions is important, but to each his own
