When it comes to many Democrats talking about Gov. Ron DeSantis reminding some students that they didn’t need to wear masks at an event, the word of the day is “bullying.” New York Gov. Kathy Hochul did just that while trying to throw shade at DeSantis yesterday before being reminded (by DeSantis himself) to check her projection at the door.
