DeSantis nails its! Speaks about the dirtbag NY prosecutor going after Trump and the idiot himself.
DeSantis is 100% right. He's correct to suggest Bragg and Soros must go.
He's also the only one with a good chance (right now) to make sure Donald goes as well. The latter isn't going to happen by the Dems prosecuting him on some trumped-up (I'm a poet) charge. Sorry folks, democracy is going to have to step up to the plate. The American people are going to have to vote to keep him away from the White House.
DeSantis, Bragg and Trump
‘The Soros district attorneys are a menace to society, and I’m just glad that I’m the only governor in the country that’s actually removed one from office during my tenure.’

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at a March 20 press conference, answering a question about reports that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has asked a grand jury to hand up an indictment of Donald Trump:
Q: If charges are brought on him, will you have any role in extradition to New York?
Mr. DeSantis: I’ve seen rumors swirl. I have not seen any facts yet, and so I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I do know this: The Manhattan district attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor. And so he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety. He has downgraded over 50% of the felonies to misdemeanors. He says he doesn’t want to even have jail time for the vast, vast majority of crimes. And what we’ve seen in Manhattan is we’ve seen the crime rate go up and we’ve seen citizens become less safe. . . .
Look, I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair. I can’t speak to that. But what I can speak to is that if you have a prosecutor who is ignoring crimes happening every single day in his jurisdiction and he chooses to go back many, many years ago to try to use something about porn-star hush-money payments, that’s an example of pursuing a political agenda and weaponizing the office. And I think that that’s fundamentally wrong.
I also think it’s important to point out when you’re talking about these Soros-funded prosecutors—yes, they may do a high-profile politicized prosecution, and that’s bad, but the real victims are ordinary New Yorkers, ordinary Americans in all these different jurisdictions—that they get victimized every day because of the reckless political agenda that these Soros DAs bring to their job. They ignore crime and they empower criminals, and that hurts people, hurts a lot of people every single day. The Soros district attorneys are a menace to society, and I’m just glad that I’m the only governor in the country that’s actually removed one from office during my tenure.
