Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has no patience for fake news and smear merchants.
Someone learned that lesson in brutal fashion.
And Ron DeSantis destroyed a Never Trump traitor by stating one simple fact.
Alyssa Farah Griffin is the latest former Trump staffer trying to cash in by refashioning themselves as a Never Trump stalwart.
It paid off as CNN scooped up Griffin who eagerly spouted off whatever anti-Trump talking points CNN’s left-wing audience wants to hear.
Griffin took a swing for the big bucks and auditioned for the role of the so-called “Republican” co-host on the left-wing show “The View.”
But Griffin also showed that she is willing to attack any conservative the left hates in order to secure the job.
During one appearance on “The View” Griffin lied about Ron DeSantis tricking donors into making recurring monthly donations by having a pre-checked box on his campaign’s donation page that automatically signed up anyone who contributed as a monthly donor.
“What a lot of these apps and websites do is you click to give once and it actually signs you up to recurringly give. It is so unfair; it is a grift, it is terrible; it is horrible,” Griffin falsely stated.
Ron DeSantis shut this lie down in short order.
During a press event DeSantis called out “The View” for spreading falsehoods and smears about his campaign’s fundraising tactics.
“I got accused by some of these people on one of these shows about, oh you know, he’s raising all of this … and they tried to say that we had auto-donate, where it keeps going every month. We do not do that,” DeSantis stated.
DeSantis told reporters that his campaign did not try to sign up anyone for an automatic recurring donation.
“We do not do that auto because we don’t want people to have these charges if that’s not something they didn’t agree with,” DeSantis continued. “So they tried to act like I was doing that and then some of these media went and said, ‘Wait a minute, he’s not doing that.’ So they were lying about that.”
DeSantis pulled back the curtain a bit and said that since many small-dollar donors lived on fixed incomes his campaign had a policy that anyone who wanted to become a monthly donor had to check a box for themselves and then confirm that they wanted their contribution to be recurring.
“At the end of the day, we have folks, some people are on a fixed income, very limited, and they will donate a certain amount and that’s very meaningful. Not everybody has the capacity to write these big (checks) … we would never do automatic unless you personally as the contributor, press that button,” DeSantis told reporters and a crowd of supporters.
Washington Examiner journalist Jerry Dunleavy tweeted out a screenshot of DeSantis’ donation page showing that Griffin was lying, and that DeSantis told the truth.
Putting aside Alyssa Farah calling something a “grift”— I just checked & the WinRed donation page for DeSantis’s gubernatorial campaign does not automatically make a donation a recurring one, but instead it’s a box you have to voluntarily select yourself.https://t.co/Nflc1Nt4lf https://t.co/rmlTDkCb2Q pic.twitter.com/kCotEqJ8Xy

Conservatives can tell that Democrats and their allies in the corporate press fear Ron DeSantis as a 2024 candidate based on the volume of lies the left tells about DeSantis.
