We’ve spoken about the media’s twisted fixation on demonizing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis because they see him as a very powerful future Republican candidate for president.

We saw the Washington Post’s Hannah Dreier promote a patently false claim about DeSantis’ response to the Surfside building collapse to suggest that he wasn’t getting federal help there as soon as he could. It was such a horrible lie even local Democrats weighed in, calling it out as false.

But Dreier wasn’t the only one out there trying to politicize a tragedy to take a whack at DeSantis.

Case in point, this character who clearly has no conscience, Ken Klippenstein of The Intercept.

Here he is trying to suggest there’s a relation to DeSantis talking about deregulation in 2019 and the building collapse now.

But DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw was having none of that.

Disgusting. First responders are risking their lives in fiery rubble to find missing people, & Ken attempts a political dunk.

DeSantis wasn’t Governor when the building was built or when concerns were raised—& NO past Gov would have been informed of this building inspection. https://t.co/uwKCmdQALF

“Disgusting,” Pushaw tweeted. “First responders are risking their lives in fiery rubble to find missing people, & Ken attempts a political dunk. DeSantis wasn’t Governor when the building was built or when concerns were raised—& NO past Gov would have been informed of this building inspection.”

In other words, there’s no way it had anything to do with DeSantis, so imagine how gross it is for Klippenstein to try to use the deaths of people like this.

He had further obsessive tweets that she busted too.

Shame on you @kenklippenstein pic.twitter.com/2K5hVgq0sj

He continued.

Ron DeSantis’ press secretary gets extremely angry if you point out that demonizing regulations is bad, please do not do that https://t.co/XMpWZn3T4Z

But Pushaw completely finished off Klippenstein’s ridiculous effort with this.
