Following the public smackdown for defaming TPUSA, the cackling hens on ABC’s The View have been handed another loss.
According to Post Millennial, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis declined an offer to appear on The View – in spectacular fashion.
"Thanks for the invite," writes Deputy Press Secretary Bryan Griffin. "I understand that you are sending this request on behalf of your team. 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?"
Then it gets good:
"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 the truth?,” Griffin continues. “Or worth the time?" Griffin then gloriously exposes the View’s slanderous statements against 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 reelected.'
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."
After roasting the View hosts for their blatant lies, Griffin concludes his rejection. "We will pass on this offer," Griffin states in conclusion. "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. Thank you."
A sad opportunity. Seeing Governor DeSantis dismantle The View on live television would have been a sight to see!
