Where do Republicans find these clowns?

A quote from THIS ARTICLE:

“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) bizarrely claimed Tuesday that the media was rooting for Hurricane Ian to hit Tampa as a way to advance a “political agenda. You have national regime media” that wanted to see Tampa hit by the storm, DeSantis said, “because they thought that would be worse for Florida.”

Is this kind of schoolyard nonsense the best a republican GOVERNOR of one of our 50 states can come up with to address a disaster like Hurricane Ian?  God help us if clowns like this are “in charge” of anything beyond handing out ice cream bars at recess to 2nd graders!  He went on making a damn fool of himself, speaking in public:

“I mean, they don’t care about the people of the state, they don’t care about the people of this community,” DeSantis continued. “They want to use storms and destruction from storms as a way to advance their agenda, and they don’t care what destruction is in their wake, they don’t care about the lives here. If they can use it to pursue their political agenda, they will do it.”  (The article then added this: “DeSantis’ office didn’t respond to requests for clarity on what political agenda he was referring to.”)

“Mac Stipanovich, a longtime Republican consultant in Florida, told HuffPost earlier this week that such a “brazen display of campaign merchandise while on very serious official business” is DeSantis’ way of dismissing governing expectations. ‘DeSantis does these things because he knows he will get away with them, and that is all that matters,” Stipanovich said. “Right and wrong don’t enter into his calculations.'”  (This little tidbit makes me wonder if DeSantis views himself as some kind of Trump junior – or maybe he really is “Mini-me?”)

Where do you republicans keep coming up with such losers to put into public office?  (And the fact that some people consider this fool “Presidential” material?  God HELP America!)
