Ron DeSantis is on a roll, scoring victory after victory.
But he never expected a Democrat to hand him this gift.
And Ron DeSantis was all smiles after a Democrat made this colossal blunder.
Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) became the most popular conservative Governor in the country for taking on the tough fights.
Gender theory insanity has swept over the Democrat Party, becoming a pillar of faith for the radical Left.
Despite the obvious risks associated with mutilating and permanently altering children as young as 3 with bogus medical procedures, the Left is on an anti-science crusade.
President Joe Biden’s regime has been going all out to push this transgender insanity, claiming “gender-affirming” care is medically necessary.
Governor Ron DeSantis took a stand against this child abuse, though, moving to block the Left from using Medicaid to pay for gender reassignment surgeries for children, and urged the state board in charge of regulating doctors to outlaw such procedures for minors.
Predictably, the corporate-controlled media and left-wing radicals reacted to this common sense move with their typical over-the-top hysteria.
But DeSantis, who’s in the midst of a re-election bid, was handed a gift by one of his leading Democrat opponents.
At the Palm Beach County Democrat Party’s Gubernatorial forum, one of the leading Democrat contenders looking to challenge Governor DeSantis, Florida Agriculture Secretary Nikki Fried, chose to pander to the MSNBC-wing of the Left with her position on children transitioning genders.
“In the last two weeks, [Governor DeSantis] is calling on the fact that we are not going to any longer allow Medicaid to cover health care costs, health care costs for hormone replacement,” Fried said. “We’re talking about girls and boys who sometimes need access but that no longer is going to be an option for those parents.”
Fried doubled on her support for the extreme LGBTQ agenda by making the laughable claim that DeSantis was somehow harming parents’ rights.
She even slammed him for wanting to restrict children from sexually explicit drag queen shows.
“That’s what’s important right now? Talking about drag shows?” Fried exclaimed. “And taking away a parental choice to take their kid to a drag show? This is insane what is happening here.”
Governor DeSantis called for the restrictions after a video surfaced online in which children in Dallas, Texas were illegally taken into a bar and exposed to sexually explicit performances from drag performers that resembled something out of a strip club.
“You had these very young kids, they must have been like 9 or 10 years old, at a quote drag show where they were putting money in the underwear,” DeSantis said. “That is totally inappropriate. That is not something children should be exposed to and so we may have the ability to deal with that if something like that happens.”
But as Florida’s lone Democrat elected to a statewide office, Agriculture Secretary Fried went all-in on the radical Left’s agenda.
If she wins the Democrat Primary, she just handed Governor DeSantis a major issue to exploit on the campaign trail.
Ron DeSantis would certainly relish the chance to square off with a looney left-wing, MSNBC radical in the Governor’s race this fall.
