MSNBC has their tail between their legs after Ron DeSantis smacked them down for lying.
They were forced to apologize on their hands and knees.
But Ron DeSantis made it clear that their deception isn’t going to go unanswered.
MSNBC and the Left-wing media are on a mission to tear down Ron DeSantis. They know that he has the best chance of defeating Joe Biden in 2024.
They also know that if he takes office, he is going to be the most effective adversary they have ever had, just like he has been in Florida.
DeSantis has done a world of damage to liberals by going after their child indoctrination schemes and their “woke” corporate agenda.
And they are intent on stopping him, even if it means lying about him.
That’s exactly what MSNBC did recently. Andrea Mitchell, one of their liberal hosts, claimed that DeSantis doesn’t want school children to learn about slavery.
In a softball interview that she conducted with Vice President Kamala Harris, Mitchell had this question for the VP: “Let me ask you, what does Governor Ron DeSantis not know about black history and the black experience when he says that slavery and the aftermath of slavery should not be taught to Florida school children?”
This of course is an absurd lie. DeSantis has never called for slavery to not be taught in schools. What he doesn’t want taught in schools is Critical Race Theory, which states that white children are inferior to black children and are morally responsible for their oppression.
He wants schools to teach that all children are equal. Go figure.
Of course, savvy political observers quickly found evidence that proved that Mitchell had lied. The Florida state requirements for education specifically list slavery and Jim Crow as part of the curriculum.
DeSantis’s team wasted no time in responding to this lie, and bringing the hammer down on MSNBC. They had this to say: “There will be no consideration of anything related to NBC Universal or its affiliates until and at least Andrea Mitchell corrects the blatant lie she made about the governor.”
The statement concluded: “Please feel free to pass this up and around the network.”
Clearly, Mitchell’s bosses at MSNBC knew they were in trouble as soon as DeSantis responded. They may hate DeSantis and want to destroy him, but since they also rely on him for news coverage, he has all the leverage in this situation.
It didn’t take long before Mitchell’s bosses forced her to go back on TV and apologize for lying. It was a weak and insincere apology, but she said she had been “imprecise” in her language.
That’s the understatement of the century. She knowingly lied about America’s best governor.
Perhaps this will be a warning signal to other liberal networks who want to take their shot at trying to ruin DeSantis to help Joe Biden.
DeSantis isn’t messing around. They cannot destroy him so easily. And he has chalked up yet another win over the Left-wing media machine.
