NEW YORK -- Ron DeSantis on Monday got a warm welcome on Staten Island, where he slammed New York's crime policies before a law-and-order audience.
However, the potential Republican candidate for president got the cold shoulder from Mayor Eric Adams.
DeSantis never mentioned former President Trump, but his decision to go to Staten Island was the equivalent of firing a missile at Mar-a-Lago with the message "I'm coming for you" inscribed on its fuselage.
"As much as I'm proud of Florida doing well, I want the country to do well," DeSantis said. "We fight the woke when they go after our law enforcement. We do not surrender to the woke mob. Our state is where woke goes to die."
Oh, and that disappointment of a NYC Mayor took a very woke potshot at DeSantis. Go for it, Eric. Bahahahahahahahahahaha!
"Welcome to NYC, @GovRonDeSantis, a place where we donít ban books, discriminate against our LGBTQ+ neighbors, use asylum seekers as props, or let the government stand between a woman and health care.
Weíre happy to teach you something about values while youíre here."
Ban books. Yeah right. Like the original text of Roald Dahlís books. Baha.
Eric and Ron are right. 024 will be about social issues. I'll bet on Ron's side in 024.
