In less than 24 hours, the bigotry has already begun to jump out after Florida Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum secured the party nomination. Gillum is on the path to becoming the state's first black governor, and his Trump cheerleader of an opponent has already set the tone with racially insensitive commentary.

In an interview with Fox News correspondent Sandra Smith, DeSantis shared his thoughts on Gillum, referring to him as an "articulate spokesman for far left views."

Oh, and that was just dog whistle number one. His right-wing ideology went all the way left when he referred to an election of the 39-year-old Tallahassee mayor as a move that would "monkey this up."

"We've got to work hard to make sure that we continue Florida going in a good direction. Let's build on the success we've had on Governor Scott," he continued. "The last thing we need to do is monkey this up by trying to adopt a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state." 

And no, that's never been a saying. 

“It’s disgusting that Ron DeSantis is launching his general election campaign with racist dog whistles,” Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo said in a statement, according to HuffPost. 

And, of course, the night would have been remiss if 45 didn't hop on to Twitter to offer some unsolicited input that makes evident his lack of a political knowledge base. 


While disappointment in the lightning speed dog-whistle does not equate to any semblance of surprise from the Twitterverse, it did, however, result in a well-deserved read. 






While DeSantis prepares his statement on "not being racist," just know that no one is here for the nonsense.
