Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis won re-election easily yesterday, but many — particularly in the media — don’t seem to be handling it well.
Christina Pushaw, head of the DeSantis campaign’s rapid response, spotted some serious triggering from the Sun-Sentinel:

Florida is now a “crimson hellscape”? LOL
Keep in mind, this isn’t an opinion piece from some random leftist loon, but rather from the paper’s editorial board:
Nice knowing you, Florida.
After Tuesday’s stunning election results, the state’s political transformation is now nearly complete, from deep purple battleground to crimson hellscape, an ideal launch pad for Gov. Ron DeSantis’ presidential aspirations. We now await a second-term agenda that may feature an open-carry gun law, tighter abortion restrictions, new strategies to suppress the vote and more charter flights for out-of-state migrants, presented with even more of the governor’s trademark hubris.
And who can blame him? DeSantis’ 19-point blowout victory was historic and nothing short of astounding. Best of all for him, he’s not Donald Trump.
He carried 62 of 67 counties, including Miami-Dade and Palm Beach, leaving Broward isolated as a blue island surrounded by red. Besides Broward, the only counties that Democrat Charlie Crist carried were Orange and the medium-sized trio of Alachua, Gadsden and Leon, a sea of red reflecting an epic Democratic collapse.
The voters in Florida don’t seem to agree with the Sun-Sentinel’s editorial board.
My God, what I would give to live in a crimson hellscape rn.

It would seem the paper’s editorial board members don’t mind living in the “crimson hellscape” either because we’re guessing none of them are going to move out of the state as a result of DeSantis’ re-election.
The Florida Sun Sentinel is having a normal one. https://t.co/YDgZ5CrlFH

Their tears are delicious.
It’s been brought to our attention that the Sun-Sentinal’s description of a “crimson hellscape” has been updated to a “landscape”:
Keep on pivoting, Sun-Sentinel!
