trolled the hosts

The hosts of The View are not known as being kind. In fact, some claim they are the reason that God gave us the middle finger.

On Monday, DeSantis’ deputy press secretary Bryan Griffin tweeted:

@TheView emailed our office on Friday asking for us to arrange an appearance from Governor DeSantis on the show. ‘We would be honored,’ they wrote.” He then asked his followers, “Thoughts?”

Griffin must have gotten excellent thoughts because, on Tuesday, he sent a letter to the producer of The View that trolled the show most excellently. Then he tweeted the letter out for public enjoyment.

The letter asked, “Which of the following statements from the hosts of The View do you recommend our team consider when deciding if the interview would be a genuine pursuit of the truth? Or worth the time:

Then he reminded the hosts of offensive statements they made on the show about Governor DeSantis.

Joy Behar, August 2021:“You’re just short of calling [Governor DeSantis] a negligent, homicidal sociopath because that’s what he is.” She added: “What is he doing? He’s risking the lives of children, children’s parents, their grandparents, anyone they may come into contact with, so he can appeal to his white supremacist base, so he can continue in his career and get re-elected.”

Sunny Hostin, June 2022: “Death-Santis… I think he’s a fascist and a bigot.”

Ana Navarro,April 2022 (on Governor DeSantis’s policies): “It’s anti-Black, it’s anti-gay, it’s anti-LGBTQ+ community. And for some reason, the Republican base responds to it.” And
“It’s anti-American. It’s what happens in Venezuela. It’s what happens in Nicaragua.

Sunny Hostin, February 2022 (on Governor DeSantis’s policies): “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.\

We will pass on this offer.

Also, please note – we don’t coordinate appearances or events of a political nature from the official office. Our role is to serve the people of Florida.

What a great response. Or, as Jackie Gleason, famous entertainer and Floridian, said at the end of every variety show he hosted,: How Sweet It Is.
