Florida Governor Ron DeSantis keeps finding new ways to top himself in the awfulness department each day. He’s enacting blatantly unconstitutional legislation to target protesters and harass transgender kids. He keeps attacking reporters. And he’s still trying to cover up his COVID vaccine scandal.
Now DeSantis is insisting that the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial only voted to convict out of fear of a “mob.” Suffice it to say that Nikki Fried, the highest ranking elected Democrat in the State of Florida, was having none of it:
Bullshit, Ron. It was murder. Rule of law. You’ve said so yourself. Don’t be such a Tucker all the time.https://t.co/lAx5ALFvAp

Nikki Fried continued: “Thank you, members of the jury for delivering justice — I hope this brings George Floyd’s family some solace. This is an important step towards accountability, but there’s still a whole lot of work to be done.”
