Former NFL coach Tony Dungy recently appeared alongside Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis this week to support the “Responsible Fatherhood Initiative”:

At the event, Dungy thanked Gov. DeSantis:
In his speech, Dungy thanked DeSantis for helping craft a playbook to tackle the issue of fatherless homes.
Dungy said, “I asked [Abe Brown], how do those young boys (19, 20, 21) get [in prison]? And he told me it’s not socio-economic, it’s not racial, it’s not education, it’s none of that. 95% of these boys did not grow up with their dad.”
There was of course some outrage from the Left, and today Dungy had quite a reality check for his critics:
2 days ago I spoke on behalf of a Florida bill that supports dads & families and it offended some people. 14 yrs ago Pres Obama said the same things almost verbatim. I’m assuming people were outraged at him too. I am serving the Lord so I’ll keep supporting dads and families.🙏🏽🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/7eIemEGe9T

Double standards detected!
Perfectly reasonable policies when proposed by Democrats are outrageous when enacted by Republicans.
If it wasn't for double standards… https://t.co/FMzrSGZlNr

Gov. DeSantis could say two plus two equals four and Dungy could agree and that would also spark outrage on the Left.
A Republican congressman recently caught flak from Democrats for a speech he made on the floor. Turned out he intentionally used a Democrat congressman's speech verbatim.
