In a sit down interview with Florida’s favorite governor, a local CBS reporter actually tried to shame DeSantis over him labeling the Biden administration “the Brandon administration”:
EXCLUSIVE: @GovRonDeSantis defends his comment last week labeling the Biden Admin “the Brandon Administration.” Calls it “a joke.”
When pressed, says it was no worse than what was said about Trump.

Here’s the exchange:
REPORTER: Last week you called the Biden administration the Brandon administration. Do you feel that that is the proper level of exchange between a governor and a president?
DESANTIS: Well let me ask you how he’s treated us. I mean, they take a lot of pot shots…
REPORTER: Shouldn’t you rise above that?
DESANTIS: Well look, I think it’s a joke. But honestly, one of the reasons why that has taken on is because a lot of your folks in the national media get very sensitive to it. Because what happened was people were chanting something else very colorful…
REPORTER: It’s a swear about the president.
DESANTIS: Well you had a reporter say that it was ‘let’s go Brandon’ when that’s not really what was said. And so I think the reason why it’s caught on is because I think it needles the national media a little bit. Because look, I mean, they’ve become very partisan. They were very much against Trump; they’re very much ahead of Biden. So I think we view it as fun. But I do think…
REPORTER: But it’s a swear about the president.
DESANTIS: Well right, but I mean here’s what I would say. Was there hand wringing about this, about the stuff that was said about Trump for four years? Nah, there wasn’t.
These partisan reporters didn’t give a crap about all the ‘fck Trump’ swears that were sent Trump’s way, but suddenly there is a massive triggering because DeSantis dared to label Biden ‘the Brandon administration’, mocking the media and Biden in one fell swoop.
I’m glad DeSantis stood his ground.
