It is of course Meatball Ron himself.

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis got into a heated argument during a press conference on Thursday with an audience member who blamed him for a recent racially motivated mass shooting that left three Black people dead.

“You don’t get to come here and blame me for some madman,” DeSantis said, raising his voice and becoming visibly angry. “That is not appropriate and I’m not going to accept it.”

DeSantis’ team has been defensive on social media and in news articles following similar accusations from state Democrats, Black leaders and the White House after a white gunman initially targeted a historically Black college then committed the murders in a nearby store in Jacksonville, Fla., before killing himself.

Thursday’s argument became particularly heated when the audience member, who was unidentified, accused DeSantis of allowing “people to hunt people like me.”

“Oh, that is nonsense. That is such nonsense!” DeSantis yelled back during the press conference, which took place in Jacksonville. He then touted his record on law enforcement and his bonuses for police officers who move to the state.

If only DeSantis got this angry about racists or guns, maybe we wouldn’t be in this situation.
