DeSantis Shreds ‘The View’ w/ Pass on Appearance

'We will pass on this offer... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis‘ office received an invitation stating the hosts of The View would “be honored” for the governor to appear on the program.

DeSantis’ deputy press secretary Bryan Griffin “pass[ed] on the offer” on the governor’s behalf, because of the co-hosts past remarks about the governor.

“Thanks for the invite. I understand that you are sending this request on behalf of your team,” Griffin replied in an email.

“But are the hosts of the View really interested in hearing from Governor DeSantis about all of the important work he is doing on behalf of Floridians to protect their health and livelihoods, to stand up for parents and children, and to defend freedom?”

“Which of the below statements from the hosts of the View do you recommend our team consider when deciding if the interview will be a genuine pursuit of truth? Or worth the time?…We will pass on this offer.”

Griffen then lists several comments made by various view hosts, including Joy Behar, Sonny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg.

Behar reportedly called DeSantis a “negligent, homicidal sociopath,” in August 2021, making one wonder why she would even want to be in the same room as such a person.

On the show, DeSantis has also been called a fascist, a bigot, anti-black, anti-gay and anti-American.

The email included a statement made by Hostin, who accused the governor of purposefully targeting marginalized groups.

“It started with CRT. Let’s remember that — and those are anti-history laws, anti-Black history laws, really,” she said. “If you start coming after Black people, what comes next, right? Of course the LGBTQ+ community, and then women, and then other marginalized groups.”

The presumed reason DeSanits was invited onto the show was to question his decision to sue R House, a Miami bar, for hosting an explicit drag event with minors present.

The governor condemned the exposure of drag queens to children, and took swift action.

“Having kids involved in this is wrong. That is not consistent with our law and policy in the state of Florida and it is a disturbing trend in our society to try to sexualize these young people,” DeSantis said.

“That is not the way you look out for our children. You protect children. You do not expose them to things that are inappropriate.”
