Known for their liberal banter and bashing of the GOP, the numerous hosts of the talk show “The View” aren’t shy when it comes to their political stances. Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar have each taken a staggering amount of time spreading their disdain for the Republican party. But although they dislike the GOP, that doesn’t mean they aren’t willing to bend when it comes to getting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on the show.
That’s right. Not fans of the Republicans, it seems the show reached out to Gov. DeSantis about appearing on the show. Deputy Press Secretary for Ron DeSantis, Bryan Griffin, tweeted, “@TheView emailed our office on Friday asking for us to arrange an appearance from Governor DeSantis on the show. ‘We would be honored,’ they wrote.”
While it might have been difficult to come to such a decision, Griffin shared the note of DeSantis’ response. “Thanks for the invite. I understand that you are sending this request on behalf of your team. But are the hosts of the View really interested in hearing from Governor DeSantis about all of the important work he is doing on behalf of Floridians to protect their health and livelihoods, to stand up for parents and children, and to defend freedom? Which of the below statements from the hosts of the View do you recommend our team consider when deciding if the interview will be a genuine pursuit of the truth? Or worth the time?”
Posting numerous quotes of what the hosts called DeSantis over the years, Griffin concluded, “We will pass on this offer. Also please note — we don’t coordinate appearances or events of a political nature from the official office. Our role is to serve the people of Florida.”
Replying to Griffin, DeSantis’ Press Secretary, Christina Pushaw, tweeted her own take.“Perfect. There is nothing that infuriates liberals more than seeing their own insane words repeated back to them in black and white.” She later added, “Liberal media wants to interview Governor DeSantis because his popularity draws ratings. But @GovRonDeSantis will not assist failing legacy media outlets in growing an audience for their smear pieces & biased reporting laden with contempt for Americans.”
