We read a good deal of shady, disingenuous tripe from politicians on Twitter, especially with the midterms only a week out, but this BS from Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum (Democrat, of course) stands out from the rest.

And not in a good way.

From The Hill:

Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum (D) said late Tuesday that he believes his Republican opponent, former Rep. Ron DeSantis (Fla.), has given “too much harbor to racists and xenophobes and anti-Semites.”

“He’s spoken at conferences with them,” Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, said when questioned by “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah about his opponent being dogged by allegations of racism.

“He authored a book justifying slavery,” Gillum added, apparently referring to DeSantis’s 2011 book, “Dreams From Our Founding Fathers: First Principles in the Age of Obama.”

Wow, this was a crock of crap.

Charles C.W. Cooke said it far better:

But Gillum has a narrative to push and the media is bound and determined to help him push it. Like ‘The Hill’, Gillum knows most people will read this headline, take his word for it, and run off shaking their tiny fists accusing DeSantis of justifying slavery.

And then they’ll claim it has something to do with Trump.

Gross, right?

Shocker.

It’s tough to campaign on raising taxes and stomping on inherent rights so yeah, they’re sticking with identity politics and the ‘everyone who doesn’t vote for Democrats is racist’ narrative.

Let’s see how that works out for them.
