Well, let me first say my grandmother used to say, “A hit dog will holler.” And it hollered through this room. Mr. DeSantis has spoken. First of all, he’s got neo-Nazis helping him out in the state. He has spoken at racist conferences. He’s accepted a contribution and would not return it from someone who referred to the former president of the United States as a Muslim n-i-g-g-e-r. When asked to return that money, he said no. He’s using that money to now fund negative ads.Naturally, DeSantis argued that there's no way he can possibly know everything about Horowitz, who hosted DeSantis for a two-night stay at a conference along with well-known figures of the so-called "alt-right."
Now, I’m not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist. I’m simply saying the racists believe he’s a racist.
