Florida's Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis absolutely crushed the Democrats in a rebuke when he's asked a question that he later suggested was ridiculous and all about "pure idiotic politic." He also suggested that Democrats keep injecting Trump into things, and implied that it was pointless for them to do that too.
DeSantis is the man. He even tells the audience to consider the source and don't be mislead by people trying to improve their profile.

Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber wants DOI Secretary Deb Haaland to reject the deal.
Gov. Ron DeSantis rebuked a call Thursday for the federal government to reject Florida’s latest gaming deal with the Seminole Tribe, dubbing that effort “idiotic” and politically motivated.
Earlier Thursday morning, Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber sent a letter to the U.S. Department of the Interior calling the Seminole Gaming Compact a violation of state and federal law to expand the industry in Florida. Under the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA), the department and Secretary Deb Haaland must sign off on state gaming agreements.

Gelber, a Democrat, says the Compact was negotiated with corrupt intent.
“It was simply a vehicle hijacked by non-tribal casino interests who fully corrupted the legislative and executive process in order to obtain advantages outside of tribal land and in direct contravention to the interests of Floridians,” Gelber wrote in a nine-page letter.
DeSantis and Seminole Tribe of Florida Chairman Marcellus Osceola Jr. signed the Compact April 23 and sent it to lawmakers for approval. DeSantis signed the bill ratifying the agreement last week, starting the Interior Department’s 45-day clock to approve the plan, reject it or allow it to go into effect without the federal agency’s action.
A provision in the Compact that opens the door to private casinos that are more than 15 miles from the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood stoked fears that casinos could crop up in resorts like Fontainebleau Miami Beach and former President Donald Trump‘s National Doral Miami. Both resorts fall outside what Gelber called an “otherwise fully random geographic limiter.”
The Fontainebleau’s owner, Jeffrey Soffer, donated to DeSantis’ campaign and met with key lawmakers, leading to the hijacking suspicion.
“Is there any basis to say that? Is there anything in the Compact that you can point to to say it was hijacked?” DeSantis answered reporters. “In fact, they’re not getting anything out of this. There’s nothing to do with that. That is just pure, idiotic politics.”
Transferring casino permits requires the Legislature’s approval. Ahead of the Special Session on gaming, Senate President Wilton Simpson shut down speculation around transferring one of Soffer’s existing permits to the Fontainebleau.
“There’s not going to be any type of transfer within Miami-Dade County. The Legislature flatly rejected that,” DeSantis added.
