Democrats Triggered by DeSantis’s Cowboy Boots


All of a sudden, Democratic political operatives have noticed that Gov. Ron DeSantis has been wearing ‘high heel boots,” or as they are commonly called Cowboy boots.

DeSantis wearing cowboy boots is nothing new.

For as long as we can remember, The Floridian has always poked fun at DeSantis for never leaving home without his black cowboy boots.

The same is the case with former Gov. Rick Scott, who also never left the mansion without his black Lucchese cowboy boots.

Cowboy boots are always in, but not for someone looking to run for president, right?

"Just like he doesn’t leave the house without his black cowboy boots. Gov. Ron DeSantis does not leave the Governor’s Mansion without his black bag."

"Ingoglia was in a tough race but then DeSantis and his black cowboy boots endorsed him, Rep. Masullo's campaign was stomped out. It was lights out for Masullo."

"Not only does he traverse the state of Florida to sign bills, meet with local small business owners, and oversee disaster relief efforts wearing his black cowboy boots, but Gov. Ron DeSantis also likes to go to the Texas southern border…"

"Gov. Ron DeSantis will be locking and loading today in Miami when he participates in the Florida Python Challenge™ 2020 Python Bowl Launch Event. Florida will be handing out cash prizes to hunters who bag the most snakes. No word yet if DeSantis will be wearing his Lucchese cowboy boots on the hunt."

Well, you all get what we are saying. Ridiculous.


Florida is Where Racism Goes to Die


Gov. DeSantis and every single state and federal lawmaker has denounced racism.

There is no room for racial or bigoted attacks in Florida, and a recent racial attack against Senator Victor Torres has been met with harsh criticism, as it should be.

But Sen. Torres's unfortunate experience was made political.

Of course, it was, the state is always in the political funny season, and race politics works, right?

The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling! Blame Republicans for racism. READ MORE
