Democrats blast DeSantis for ‘monkey this up’ quote about Gillum agenda

This will make it in the history books if Democratic ticket Governor, Gillium wins the race as Governor then he would be the first black Governor that Florida ever had. Georgia has so many past black Governors and Mayors so it is time for Florida to become progressive.

Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis on Fox News this morning.

Democrats accused U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, the Florida Republican nominee for governor, of using racist language when he used “monkey” as a verb when discussing the agenda of his black rival, Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum.

DeSantis’s campaign called the accusation “absurd.”

Appearing on Fox News the morning after he and Gillum won their primaries, DeSantis said: “We’ve got to work hard to make sure we continue Florida going in a good direction. Let’s build off the success we’ve had on Gov. (Rick) Scott. The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state.”

Gillum — endorsed by Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders — was branded a “failed Socialist Mayor” in a morning tweet by President Donald Trump.
