12 very short videos of Dem hypocrites at link.
Yesterday a firestorm erupted when Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis said during an interview on Fox News, "The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state."
His Democrat opponent Andrew Gillum and his friends in the leftist media immediately pounced, saying the use of the term was a "racist bullhorn."
DeSantis has fired back, saying his use of the term had nothing to do with race.
But despite their outrage, Democrats haven't had any trouble regularly using a similar term: "monkeying around." This includes Democrats working directly for President Barack Obama.
Rich Weinstein has compiled a long list:
Are these Democrats also using racist bullhorns? Or are they just politically opportunistic hypocrites?

Maybe DeSantis said it on purpose, because he knew the response it would get.
Rush needs to put together a ‘montage’ for the radio - great find !!!
The Right now has a Rapid Response Team.
I like it!
Same Tactic Liberals always use to attack Republicans. Try to smear them with racist tags. The link shows what hypocrites they are. Fight back Ron!
I’m going to turn my trunk monkey loose on them:
My thoughts exactly. Then after they take the bait, hammer them with all the videos of Dems using the phrase including, BO.
I will point out that “monkey around” is a well known expression while I had not heard “monkey things up” until yesterday. Maybe it’s a Florida thing?
Ron seems to enjoy triggering liberals. Look at his campaign ad.
I like this guy!
I mean, how perfect was THAT!? LOL!
And now were to believe it was somehow racist?
The Left is insane.
He should use this the rest of the campaign. ‘Don’t let the socialist blank this up. There are at least 3 different words I could put in here and they ALL mean the same thing.’
Support Free Republic, Folks!
I think it was a handy euphemism for effing things up.
Every time a lefty cries racism, a Trump voter gets his wings.
The press did not publish the whole sentence. Only the first few words not the last very few words.
True, but not one of them had a black opponent they were running against.
