(Absolute News) – Speaking in Washington, D.C., at a dinner attended by prominent Republican members, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis ripped the press for never apologizing after creating fake stories about the Russian collusion theory that targeted former President Trump.
The Governor said that the press had created the fake conspiracy theory about Russian collusion about two years ago. He continued by saying that he was in Congress when the fake news started spreading and that he was among the first people who knew that it was “BS” from the beginning. The Governor also talked about those individuals in the press who were complaining about the 2020 election. He said that they never accepted Trump, and they created conspiracy theories to try to remove him from the office.
DeSantis seemed to be referring to the Russian collusion theory, which had no evidence after over two years of comprehensive investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The report from the investigation concluded that the Russian government did not coordinate with Trump or his followers during his campaign in any way.
The Governor highlighted that none of the media personalities involved in spreading the fake news have apologized. “So that’s where we are,” he continued. “They gaslight. They display partisanship. They smear people. It is all to create a blizzard of lies, trying to blind the American people from the actual truth.”
DeSantis indicated that the current society is veering away from facts. A society that is against the truth-tellers and views them as a threat to their power. He said that it is high time that we are all courageous in facing the dishonest press; be brave enough to talk on behalf of those Americans who do not have a voice.
The Governor stated that every member of the GOP must also be willing to stand up against the press. No one should be afraid of being convicted, as there are millions of followers on their side. He concluded by saying that he would stand on his ground and not back down in the fight against fake news.
