DeSantis Rips Newsom in the Aftermath of Fox News Debate


Last week, Americans got to see Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and California Gov. Gavin Newsom go toe-to-toe with one another. The pair traded blows Thursday night on Fox News, with host Sean Hannity as the moderator for the 90-minute debate.

During this period, the two high-profile governors answered questions and blasted one another over immigration, guns, abortion, the 2024 presidential election, and more. In the aftermath of the debate, the DeSantis presidential campaign has used it to promote him as the effective leader this country needs.

Days after the debate, the Florida governor himself also continues to make clear why he believes Newsom and Newsom’s agenda are so dangerous.

The latest from DeSantis on the California governor

On Friday, DeSantis campaigned in Prosperity, South Carolina, speaking with the state’s voters. It was during this time that the Republican governor expressed how taken aback he was by Newsom using “bold-face lies” to get through last week’s debate.

DeSantis torched his Californian counterpart as not just a liar, but also as someone who knows President Biden faces cognitive struggles, but won’t publicly admit it for political reasons.
