Has America’s entertainment industry ever been more out of touch with regular Americans? Have they ever been more ignorant and dishonest? Millions of Americans are flocking to Florida. That is because under Governor Ron DeSantis, Florida is open, prosperous, free, and safe. A sharp contrast from blue states such as California and New York.
We can expect the Left’s baseless and idiotic attacks against Governor DeSantis to intensify as we get closer to Florida’s gubernatorial election in 2022. The Left is also terrified of Governor DeSantis running for POTUS in 2024. They know what he would do to President Biden or Vice President Harris.
And if you can, please contribute to Geller Report. YOU make the work possible.
Do… do people actually think this makes DeSantis look bad?
Jimmy Kimmel looks like a dick in this, attacking DeSantis and Florida for, near as I can tell, literally no reason at all https://t.co/Cfz1sy64WB

Viewers react to Jimmy Kimmel calling Florida ‘America’s North Korea’: ‘Hateful ignorance’
Gov. Ron DeSantis has been a favorite target of the media’s for largely keeping Florida open during pandemic
By Fox News, June 6, 2021
“In America’s North Korea, the Sunshine State, from time to time, we enjoy taking a look at what’s going on, and tonight we are doing it again in a Gov. DeSantis edition of ‘This Week in Florida,'” Kimmel said while introducing a video of Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis kicking off the “2021 Python challenge.” The annual event challenges participants to remove invasive Burmese pythons “with the goal of empowering people to take an active role in conserving the Florida Everglades through invasive species removal,” the competition website explains.
“As part of my focus on restoring the Everglades, I’ve charged FWC with dedicating more resources and taking innovative approaches to removing invasive Burmese pythons,” DeSantis said in a press conference introducing this year’s contest.
“Alleged comedian,” is how The Post Millennial described Kimmel after his mocking monologue.

Several others noted that Florida is the “polar opposite” of North Korea because DeSantis largely kept the state free and open during the coronavirus pandemic, unlike some of his progressive counterparts.
The governor appeared to be a favorite target of the media’s over the course of the past year for those decisions.
“Those lockdowns have not worked, they’ve done great damage to our country,” DeSantis said in May. “We can never let something like this happen again. Florida took a different path – we’ve had more success as a result.”
A now-infamous CBS’ “60 Minutes” segment suggested that the governor gave the Publix grocery store chain preferable treatment for the coronavirus vaccine based on its donations to his PAC. The segment also painted DeSantis as a villain who prioritized at-risk senior citizens over teachers. He pushed back against “60 Minutes” for what he called “deceptive editing.”
“They’ve issued a lot of mealy-mouthed statements since the episode aired, they knew what they were putting on the air was false,” DeSantis said on “Fox & Friends.”
