As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Martha’s Vineyard was hit with a “humanitarian crisis” Thursday after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew around 50 illegal immigrants, most from Venezuela, into the airport there. We thought Martha’s Vineyard was a nice community, but apparently leaving migrants there is cruel and inhumane, “depraved,” and “sick and dehumanizing.”
As Twitchy reported, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was disgusted with DeSantis for abandoning these poor migrants on the mean streets of Martha’s Vineyard. This is the same island where Barack Obama had people flying in on private jets to attend his 600-person 60th birthday party.
Florida gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist held a news conference over Zoom to talk about DeSantis’ “inhumane” treatment of migrants, but he didn’t have much to offer on what to do about the situation at the border.
Charlie Crist's Zoom press conference about Governor DeSantis sending illegal migrants to Martha's Vineyard did not exactly go the way he had hoped.
4 reporters asked Charlie what he would do about the Biden Border Crisis.

Kudos to the reporters… they actually pressed for an answer

“What specifically would you do that’s different than the current policy??”
Crist: “whatever DeSantis isn’t doing.”
Great answer there Charlie…

"What would you do differently?". "Well I wouldn't do this or that". "But what would you…?". "I wouldn't…". So how would you…? Well I wouldn't…. Yawn.

These people are so used to communications hegemony and not having to defend against basic, plain-spoken questions.

I don’t get what the issue is. Most Americans have never had the pleasure of visiting Martha’s Vineyard. It’s a beautiful place. Those illegals are in heaven right now. That is if the good people of MV will let them roam around.

Political tactics…. so like answering a different question than what was asked? Criticizing your opponents actions rather than stating you have no plans, no intent to develop plans, but are desperate to turn anything into your favor as you lack any real substance of your own?

Wait, didn't the Biden admistritation ship them like cattle sending them to Florida in the first place?
It's not like these migrants are walking across the southern border into Florida.

Yep, the Biden administration flew in at least 70 planeloads of migrants to Florida, expecting military bases to house unaccompanied minors.
Once a weasel always a weasel.

Oh, and migrants are being “lied to” to get them on buses north. What about Biden flying migrants around the country in the middle of the night? What were they promised?
