FL Gov. Candidate Ron DeSantis Says 'Monkey This Up' in Reference to Black Opponent

Florida’s gubernatorial race got seriously racial when Republican candidate Ron DeSantis dropped a “monkey” comment while talking about his Democratic opponent … who is black.

DeSantis is fresh off winning the Republican primary, and while on Fox News Wednesday morning … he was asked about going head-to-head with Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum.

DeSantis said, “The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda.”

There was no pause or attempt to re-phrase — so, either he didn’t realize what he’d said, or it’s blatant racial dog-whistling.

Whichever it is … DeSantis says he’s the one to lead Florida in a “good direction.”
