Gov. DeSantis appeared on ‘Tucker Carlson Today’ where he assailed Biden as an “aggressive left-wing culture warrior,” a complete opposite of the “moderate” that was promised during the campaign.
Carlson asked; “Why did they get angrier when they won?”
The governor answered, “I think they have a fraction of their base that is just perpetually angry. I think they’re very caustic and nasty. I think unless they make us a complete socialist country, these people are never going to be happy .. I think anything short of complete domination of conservatism, making sure people that have conservative views are shut out, anything short of that, they’re just not going to be happy.
I think they’re captive to that part of their base and I think that’s ultimately going to be their undoing in 2022 and then I think probably in 2024.”
As the target of a spectacularly failed hit piece by CBS flagship “60 Minutes,” DeSantis also addressed the problem of a media that has lost credibility for its false narratives and open advocacy for the Democrats.
Carson asked whether it is sustainable to have a country where “nobody believes the news media.”
DeSantis replied, “I think it’s a big problem. If you look, the corporate media has always had you know, a liberal bias but if you go back 20, 30 years,” he said, “it would always be through a liberal prism but they wouldn’t just do some of the stuff that they do now; they are actively partisan and not only that, it’s all about crafting a narrative regardless of the facts."
He continued; “So if there’s a fact that’s inconvenient to the narrative, they’ll smother the fact, they’ll ignore the fact in order to be able to continue with the narrative. Think about some of the stuff that’s been put out since Trump’s been president. Russia collusion, false. Jessie Smollett, false. Some of the stuff they tried to accuse Don Jr. of doing this or that, Cohen (referring to Trump’s rat lawyer) all these bombshells turned out to be false.”
DeSantis added; “the phone call that Trump supposedly had with Georgia, where they fabricated the quotes, they aren’t even real quotes and so I think it’s a big problem for a democracy. There’s no accountability for the corporate press, they can do this with impunity and no one really holds them accountable, I think their model is kind of smear their opponents for clicks.”
