It was too good not to be on a shirt.
According to Fox News, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is having a little fun at the expense of hypocritical Democrats who fled their home states for Florida to get a little taste of freedom. Team DeSantis is selling “Escape to Florida/The Lockdown Libs tour” shirts to raise money for his reelection campaign.
“We don’t blame you … we like freedom, too,” the back of the shirt says. Then there’s a list of Democrats – including governors from Connecticut, Michigan, and New Jersey – and where they stayed while visiting the Sunshine State.
“If I had a dollar for every lockdown politician who decided to escape to Florida over the last two years, I’d be a pretty doggone wealthy man, let me tell you,” DeSantis joked at a press conference last week. “I mean, Congress people, mayors, governors, I mean you name it.”
“It’s interesting the reception that some of these folks will get in Florida,” the governor said at the press conference, “because I think a lot of Floridians say, ‘Wait a minute you’re bashing us because we’re not doing your draconian policies, and yet we’re the first place you want to flee to, to basically to be able to enjoy life.’”
