If a Democrat debates a Republican, the last place they’d want to do so would be on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.
But that didn’t stop California Governor Gavin Newsom from entering enemy territory and debating Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
According to Stu Burgiere, it was the wrong decision, as he believes that Newsom just “blew up his career.”
“Gavin Newsom did huge damage to people in California, he ruined livelihoods,” DeSantis said while Newsom rolled his eyes. “We reopened the state very quickly. We saved thousands of jobs, we saved hundreds of thousands of jobs, thousands of businesses. We had our kids in school, he had the kids locked out of school,” he added.
DeSantis also noted that California has one of the lowest literacy rates in the country, while Florida is number three for fourth grade reading.
“So, you should apologize for not getting your kids in school. Why didn’t you get the kids in school in the summer of 2020?” DeSantis asked as Newsom fumbled his answer.
The topic of books on gender in schools also made an appearance, and DeSantis again gave the right answers.
“The role of the school is to educate kids, not indoctrinate kids,” DeSantis said, adding, “What we’ve said in Florida is it’s inappropriate to tell a kindergartener that their gender is a choice. It’s inappropriate to tell a second grader that they may have been born in the wrong body.”
The Florida governor then pulled out a page from a book that has been allowed in California schools, called “Gender Queer.”
“This is pornography. It’s cartoons, it’s aimed at children, and it’s wrong,” he said, while Newsom again struggled to fight back.
“I think DeSantis should take this as a massive win,” Glenn Beck comments.
