DeSantis rips heckler blaming him for Jacksonville shooting: 'That is such nonsense'

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis laid into a heckler at a press conference Thursday who attempted to blame him for the recent shooting in Jacksonville in an exchange that lit up social media.

"Excuse me. I’m not going to let you accuse me of committing criminal activity," DeSantis said after an activist began trying to link him to the shooting in Jacksonville while mentioning Trayvon Martin, a Black teenager killed in Florida in 2012.

"I am not going to take that," DeSantis repeated, speaking at an event at Culhane's Irish Pub in Jacksonville, Florida.

"You want to have a civil conversation, that's one thing," DeSantis said. "To try to say that I’m letting … that guy was Baker Acted. He should have been ruled ineligible, but they didn’t involuntarily commit him."

The alleged Jacksonville shooter, who killed 3 people last month in what is believed to be a racially motivated attack targeting Black people, was briefly held under a state law called the Baker Act in 2017, which says a person can be "taken to a receiving facility for involuntary examination" during a mental health crisis.

"No, no, there is the truth," DeSantis said as he continued to spar with the heckler. "There is something about the truth. Everyone doesn’t have their own truth. No. You don’t get to come here and blame me for some madman. That is not appropriate, and I’m not going to accept it.".................

What a ridiculous accusation.  Note how the the ignoramus blathered on while DeSantis responded to him.  I'm so tired of hearing about the Jacksonville shooting.  That area typically is #1 in the state for homicides, and white supremacy is irrelevant.

I hope to win the Looney Lib Lingo Bingo coverall.
