    Maybe not. DeSantis' then-press secretary Christina Pushaw (who just resigned from her job as press secretary to work as the rapid response director for the governor's re-election campaign) had to set the record straight. \u201cOf course it\u2019s fake. The clip of DeSantis is from 2020 when he was responding to a question about Florida police executing a felony search warrant at the home of a fired state employee who had a documented arrest history of physical violence against police.\u201d — Christina Pushaw \ud83d\udc0a \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 (@Christina Pushaw \ud83d\udc0a \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8) 1660393636 \u201cThe subject of that 2020 warrant, Rebekah Jones, was home when FDLE/TallahasseePD knocked on her door.

    by Laurel Duggan Christina Pushaw stepped down from her role as press secretary for Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to serve on his re-election campaign, she told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Election laws restrict the ability of individuals to endorse political candidates or parties and make certain election-related statements in their capacity as government employees; now that Pushaw works for DeSantis’ campaign and not the Florida government, she is free from those restrictions. She appeared to warn her opponents about the next phase of her career in a Friday tweet. “Now, the gloves are off,” she wrote in response to a tweet about her resignation.

    DeSantis, who has become an immensely popular figure on the political right, is currently seeking re-election during the Sunshine State's gubernatorial election contest. U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist and Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried are the most prominent candidates running in the state's Democratic gubernatorial primary. Earlier this year, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) endorsed Crist. Crist previously served as governor of Florida from early 2007 through early 2011 — he won the governorship as a Republican, then later lost a U.S. Senate bid while running as an independent in 2010. In 2014 Crist lost a Florida gubernatorial election while running as a Democrat. "Now, the gloves are off," Pushaw tweeted regarding her job shift. Pushaw, who is known for being an outspoken critic of the media, told the Daily Wire that the comment was a bit "tongue-in-cheek," pointing out that she does not generally hold back when responding to the media. "Traditionally for a state employee, you don’t have a lot of latitude," Pushaw said, according to the outlet. "But I've been...
    Source: YouTube Screenshot The flame-throwing press secretary for Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) resigned on Friday to work on the governor’s re-election campaign. After 15 months in DeSantis’ office, Christina Pushaw will be the campaign’s director of rapid response. In a letter to the administration department of the Executive Office of the Governor, Pushaw wrote, “It has been a great honor to serve the people of Florida under the leadership of Governor Ron DeSantis and his administration.” Expressing appreciation to DeSantis and her colleagues, Pushaw said they “gave me latitude to respond to media narratives in direct and often unconventional ways, allowing me to redefine this role for a leader whose actions speak for themselves.” BREAKING: Governor DeSantis’ Press Secretary @ChristinaPushaw resigns from state office to serve as Director of Rapid Response on the governor’s re-election campaign.

    by Laurel Duggan   Christina Pushaw, press secretary for Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, has been putting Democrats and the corporate press on defense by refusing to play along with what she says are partisan narratives. Pushaw has garnered national attention for her active and sometimes aggressive interactions with journalists. Her strategy may serve as a playbook for conservatives who are ready to reject the media’s framing and communicate with the public on their own terms. The media’s interest in Pushaw is a product of their obsession with DeSantis, Pushaw told the DCNF, which began in 2020 when Florida opened schools and businesses earlier than other states and became subject to constant media criticism. DeSantis largely ignored his media detractors, and Pushaw’s strategy mirrors her boss’s: she doesn’t play along with the media’s framing of an issue if it’s misleading or overtly partisan, and she uses her platform on Twitter to cut past the spin and communicate with people directly, she explained. It has come to my attention that some liberal media activists are mad because they arent...
    "We will pass on this offer," Griffin wrote. "Also please note — we don't coordinate appearances or events of a political nature from the official office. Our role is to serve the people of Florida." \u201cHere's our response to @TheView:\u201d — Bryan Griffin (@Bryan Griffin) 1659382048 Replying to Griffin's post, DeSantis press secretary Christina Pushaw tweeted, "Perfect. There is nothing that infuriates liberals more than seeing their own insane words repeated back to them in black and white." "This is spectacular!" Megyn Kelly tweeted. "This may be one of the greatest emails ever composed," Erick Erickson declared. "A missed opportunity, IMO," Breitbart senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak remarked. "DeSantis would have had the opportunity to speak directly to a skeptical audience." DeSantis, who has become an enormously popular figure on the political right, is seeking another term in office this year. "Liberal media wants to interview Governor DeSantis because his popularity draws ratings," Pushaw tweeted. "But @GovRonDeSantis will not assist failing legacy media outlets in growing an audience for their smear pieces & biased reporting laden with contempt for Americans." \u201cLiberal...
    Comedian Trevor Noah took several potshots at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) at Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, claiming the governor was in the room — but he was not there. Noah attempted several jokes at DeSantis’s expense: One of my favorites, Ron DeSantis is here. Yeah, yeah. Oh man, I’m actually surprised that he found the time. He’s been so busy trying to outmaneuver Trump for 2024. I see you, Ron. I see you, player. Yeah. I’ve seen what you’ve been doing, blaming Trump for the lockdowns, distancing yourself from the vaccines that Trump created with his own two hands “Nobody knew how to make vaccines until I made them, beautiful, beautiful vaccines. Nobody know how, not even Fauci.” But Ron is playing it coy, man. He won’t even tell people if he got the booster. Or as they say in Florida, don’t ask, don’t tell. Am I right? I see you, Ron. You see, what I like about Ron DeSantis is if Trump was the original Terminator, DeSantis is the T-1000. You’re smarter than him. You’re slicker...
    How did DeSantis respond? DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw confirmed that Reid's allegations are bogus. On Saturday, Pushaw clarified that every person who stood behind DeSantis at the ceremony did so willingly. She even shared an image of the same black students whom Reid claimed were "props" seeking the pens that DeSantis used to sign the bill. "I was working at this event and helped with the set up. My colleague talked to all the kids beforehand & told them what the issue was & what bills @GovRonDeSantis was signing. Hundreds of people attended this event; those ~50 who ended up on stage freely chose to stand on stage," Pushaw explained. Here are the same kids (on the left hand side) excited to get the pen from @GovRonDeSantis after he signed the bills.pic.twitter.com/mnVtZgmE4S — Christina Pushaw \ud83d\udc0a \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 (@Christina Pushaw \ud83d\udc0a \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8) 1650764214 "Here are the same kids (on the left hand side) excited to get the pen from @GovRonDeSantis after he signed the bills," she followed up.

    Florida Democrats and LGBTQ+ activists have waged war on this legislation, making it a top priority in their messaging. They inaccurately characterized it as the "Don't Say Gay" bill, a name adopted by local and national media, a name that falsely suggested that Republicans were attempting to make it illegal to talk about gay people in school. The DeSantis administration has vigorously defended the bill, accusing Democrats and the media of waging a disinformation campaign against it. The MAJORITY of Democratic primary voters (politically active Democrats) in Florida SUPPORT the Parental Rights in Education bill, despite the weeks-long legacy media disinformation campaign. \n\nThis should be a MUCH bigger story. — Christina Pushaw \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 (@Christina Pushaw \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8) 1648132443 “Most Floridians, no matter their orientation, agree that instruction on sexuality and gender theory is inappropriate in grades K-3,” said DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw, after the Daily Wire published the results of another poll that found bipartisan support for the Parental Rights bill. NBC News reporter Marc Caputo, who shared the Floridians for Economic Advancement on Twitter, recently criticized the...
    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas entered the hospital on Friday, yet the court’s spokesperson is refusing to state whether or not the 73-year old conservative jurist remains hospitalized. On Sunday the Court first revealed Thomas had entered the hospital two days earlier but said he was expected to be released “in a day or two.” According to the Court, Justice Thomas was admitted with “flu-like symptoms,” which were described as an “infection.” He allegedly had not contracted COVID-19. Yet on Wednesday, after being hospitalized for five days, “court spokeswoman Patricia McCabe said she had no update to provide,” the Associated Press reports, noting the high court “won’t say” if he remains in the hospital. Thomas missed the third day of arguments Wednesday and did not participate virtually. DeSantis spokesperson Christina Pushaw Wednesday afternoon urged prayers for the far right-wing jurist: Pray for Clarence Thomas! — Christina Pushaw \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 (@Christina Pushaw \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8) 1648057047 From Your Site Articles

    Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images. The Associated Press sent a letter to the office of Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) asking him to stop “harassing behavior” from his spokesperson over an article this week. With covid cases continuing to surge in Florida, DeSantis has been announcing multiple Regeneron monoclonal antibody sites where people with covid can go for treatment. On Wednesday the Associated Press reported that the company of a top DeSantis donor has invested in Regeneron. Citadel, a Chicago-based hedge fund, has $15.9 million in shares of Regeneron Pharmaceutical Inc., according to filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Citadel CEO Ken Griffin has donated $10.75 million to a political committee that supports DeSantis — $5.75 million in 2018 and $5 million last April. It’s not unusual for hedge funds to have a wide range of investments. And BlackRock, which has primarily donated to Democratic candidates, though has also donated substantially to Republicans, has a large holding in the company – more so than Citadel. The AP quotes DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw as saying, “Claiming that there is somehow ‘corruption’ by...
                        Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has a new Press Secretary, a freelance reporter who exposed one of the state’s loudest COVID-19 critics. Christina Pushaw is slated to handle the media on DeSantis’ behalf, according to a Monday report in The Capitolist.  She appears to be replacing Cody McCloud, who, according to his LinkedIn profile, is DeSantis’ most recent Press Secretary. It is unclear whether McCloud has departed DeSantis’ administration, or moved to a different role. “My main goal is to help people understand the facts about what Governor DeSantis has accomplished for Florida and how he’s working to build on those accomplishments every day,” Pushaw told The Florida Capital Star Tuesday. “Over the past year especially, there have been so many instances where corporate media outlets have treated Gov DeSantis very unfairly — for example, falsely insinuating (without evidence) that Florida’s Covid numbers aren’t accurate, or elevating ludicrous conspiracy theories about ‘pay to play’ deals during the vaccine rollout,” she continued. “I do not believe any other Governor has faced this...
