Don't get on a bus, if he tries to persuade you.


lownote

I think it's the trains you really have to worry about.


Kstate2022

I'd probably get some extra PTO. A unplanned all expenses paid trip to Martha's vineyard isn't the worst thing in the world.


Interesting_Emu

Honestly never really traveled the east coast. Could be a good time!


Bonny-Mcmurray

Martha's Vineyard is seriously 10/10 beautiful.


MassiveFajiit

Idk Massachusetts is nice in the fall


jlt6666

Hey, free trip


EndsWithJusSayin

Can we put that asshole on a bus TO THE FUCKING SUN? jokes aside, i wouldn't even wish this kind of torture to the Sun.


StarWreck92

Fans of politicians, that’s what’s wrong with this country. They’re elected officials, not sports teams.


crmacjr

But, but muh identity.


hamptonstevens

So true. Somebody was pulling that stuff about how Biden couldn't have win because he didn't have huge rallies. I'm like "Brother, I can't imagine why anyone would go to any rally at all."


StarWreck92

I can’t wrap my head around rally’s either. It’s just a bunch of boisterous talk with nothing to back it up. Honestly, just like a high school pep rally.


stick_always_wins

Welcome to American democracy


SafteyReader7337

Shouldn’t he be.. I dunno… governing his state or some shit?


The_Archagent

This is him testing the waters for a presidential run.


SecretComposer

Seriously. He's running for re-election and has spent more time campaigning for other people in other states the last couple of months. He's 100% focused on President.


VoxVocisCausa

He's campaigning for 2024 even if he hasn't announced his run yet. That hotel is where the KS GOP always has their annual convention.


tysoniousmink

As a Floridian, I’ll let you know, that guy doesn’t give two shits about human beings.


nich3play3r

As an Iowan: we know.


N0tInKansasAnym0r3

As a Kansan who moved to Iowa, I don't know.. iowans are nice but not all there. Maybe he could do some damage in Iowa for better


nich3play3r

User name checks out.


kristenevol

As a Missourian, I know.


CopaceticVindication

Hes much too busy sucking himself off 24/7 to give a shit about Florida


solojones1138

No he's busy kidnapping people from Texas and sending them to Martha's Vineyard.


MGR250

Sounds heinous


solojones1138

Somehow it'll get him more votes though.


x-bubblehead-709

You mean the people caught coming over here illegally?


sir_scizor1

Does being here illegally mean the governor no longer has to follow the law?


x-bubblehead-709

What law did he break? He just gave them a ride. The federal government’s policies are at fault here.


sir_scizor1

How about: 1) transporting undocumented foreign nationals 2) using public funds 3) across state lines under false pretenses if a bus company said they were going to transport you to one place then dumps you somewhere else, that’s considered operating in bad faith. It’s not just asinine, it’s illegal. The law is what separates Megabus from a _coyote_


Shifuede

I guess you've never heard of laws forbidding human trafficking, then...


x-bubblehead-709

Did he hold them against their wills?


Shifuede

Interesting that you intentionally ignore the "fraud or deception" portion of the "force, fraud or deception"... Also interesting that you assume they were asked instead of just being told "you're going here...get on the plane". *^(edit)*^(: typo on interesting)


thedybbuk

A lot has come out in recent days about these people being lied to about where they were being taken and what would happen when they got there, and the fact they were being dumped off in communities who didn't even know they were coming. Is that illegal? I don't know. But I can tell you it is morally wrong to do that to human beings. Whatever you think about those migrants, they are also human beings (I hope you would agree, not sure frankly), not political props for DeSantis to use. There is frankly something sociopathic about the way conservative are defending lying to these people and moving them across the country simply for political points.


scanvector

They weren't here illegally. They were here as refugees and they're legally allowed to stay in the country until a judge rules on their asylum case.


solojones1138

Yeah, the ones here illegally whom he illegally trafficked across state lines. Edit: also lol at RedditCares


vallazzaraptor

I’m from KC and now live in Florida and I hate him.

We all do!!!


AVGuy42

Hey! Me too


KatoBytes

He's probably running for president at some point so he's trying to get his name out there. Also, don't pretend you can't govern your state outside of its borders, lmao


SafteyReader7337

He’s *definitely* running for President in ‘24. We all know why he’s here. I never said he can’t govern his state from outside it’s borders, I just want him to stay out of my metro area because he’s a walking piece of shit and we already have plenty of those around here.


Fastbird33

Im from Florida, he’s done nothing but culture war bullshit aince covid.


KatoBytes

I'm also from Florida, and I agree too im just sayin


atgwmlavtam

Would you be against a MO or KS governor speaking to people at an event in another state?


oldbastardbob

If they are profiting from it while in office, then, yes, I'm against it. If it's unpaid, for example, to go to their alma mater and give a speech at an event, I'm good with it. I don't like that rich PAC's and dark money can use events like this to funnel money into the pockets of state officeholders. Corruption is a thing and it seems to have become out of control. Especially so since Citizens United.


knobcopter

Yes. When I lived in Missouri I was worried any time parson opened his dumb shit mouth. Member when he told people to not vote?


Fastbird33

I hate that Josh Hawley even travels around Missouri much less the nation


SpinningHead

Are they fascist garbage like DeSantis?


Starbrand62286

Fuck that guy


udont-knowjax

I came here to say fuck this guy


GreenGrowerGuy

Considering how homophobic he is, my guess is somebody already is.


bigmoneythrowaway69

Can y’all stop it with this “every homophobe is secretly gay” shit? Of all the homophobia I’ve experienced in my life, the vast majority of it has come from straight people. Just regular ol’ straight people. And that tired stereotype is nothing more than a ridiculous abdication of guilt. As someone who moved to KC from Florida largely to escape Desadist’s wrath, your comment is honestly really, really hurtful. He’s lead a targeted campaign to vilify queer people in the eyes of the country, dismantle our legal protections, and outright persecute us in Florida. He’s not doing it because he’s secretly gay, he’s doing it because he’s a power hungry, bloodthirsty bigot.


strghtflush

It's so fucking aggravating. "Oooh, this guy has dedicated his political career to helping set the stage for LGBT extermination! Bet he likes it up the ass, am I right?" Like, folks, the punchline of your joke is still "Haha, gay person!"


Moldy_pirate

It really just feels like these jokes are another form of homophobia.


DesolateShinigami

The jokes are insensitive, but the information they're based on isn't inaccurate. There has been a lot of Republicans actively against the LGBTQ community that turned out to be in the closet.


SpinningHead

You cant hate anyone as much as yourself. Also, [https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8772014/](https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8772014/)


bigmoneythrowaway69

Read up on recency bias, these stories exist, yes, but they’re over represented in the news and on social media due to their irony.


DesolateShinigami

Yeah, but it’s also about not using absolutes. Not all Republicans that are homophobic are gay, but some of them are and most of them only come out after a scandal. Edited: Grammar mistake


bigmoneythrowaway69

Basically the entire republican party is homophobic, at least by proxy. You’re saying the majority of them are gay and in the closet? Statistically I don’t think that’s possible. I don’t even think 20% or even 10% of them are gay and in the closet. You could perhaps argue that closeted gay people are OVERREPRESENTED in the republican party, but that’s very different from arguing they’re the majority. Either way, a statistical over representation (which I, frankly, can’t find any evidence even exists) does not constitute a gay joke on every picture, post, comment, or otherwise reference to any male republican politician.


DesolateShinigami

>You’re saying the majority of them is gay and in the closet? I very clearly used the word “some.”


bigmoneythrowaway69

You said “some of them are and most of them are and only come out after a scandal”. Did you perhaps mean “some of them are but most only come out after a scandal” ?


strghtflush

I didn't ask for your excuse. A handful of gay republicans voting for shit against their interests that they've already made peace with for lobbying money does not absolve queerness being the butt of the joke, and it doesn't absolve straight or cis folks for playing the peanut gallery to wisecrack about a politician being the target of his own hatred while queer people as a whole are under constant attack.


DesolateShinigami

What excuse? I didn’t make the joke. Also nobody asked anybody for anything. I’m saying it’s really frustrating to see Republicans go against their own community and the likelihood that more are in the closet is definitely there.


jbFanClubPresident

The punchline isn’t “haha, gay person”. The punchline is “what a fucking hypocrite”. Source: Am gay and these fuck twats always want head behind their wife’s back.


VoxVocisCausa

100%. Greg Abbott is not trying to exterminate trans people because he's secretly trans and Desantis is not persecuting lgbtq+ people because he's secretly gay. They're both doing it because they're both not so secretly homophobes and because their bigoted supporters love it when they get to hurt people who are different than themselves.


kcwckf

How straight were they though?


[deleted]

Power hungry power bottom, maybe?


ToothpasteJugglerx

Lame joke


strghtflush

Hahaha, man what a great joke. It's funny because he's gay! Get it everyone? Get how funny being gay is?


CrazyMountain_

I have been to Miami beach. FL is obviously not homophobic.


4Sammich

Yet the rest of the state is.


Gulfjay

You’d be surprised these days, especially in Miami. There’s still a thriving LGBTQ+ community in the cities, but a large portion of the state is still full of radical conservatives, especially up North. Even the more moderate conservatives in South and Central Florida have become much more anti-LGBTQ as the GOP has accelerated the new anti-LGBTQ messaging, with Miami historically having a large base of conservative Hispanics. I can confirm this as someone who’s lived in both the deep red, and more purple/blue regions of Florida back and forth for years.


dbcannon

God help us all, if Florida Man ends up running the country


scifi-riot

For those wondering why, he is coming to rally support for Derek Schmidt in the KS governor race. And to probably promote himself.


Kstate2022

This gives me hope for Kelly. Schmidt is in trouble if he's getting DaSantis to come support him.


kcbluedog

DeSantis is likely front runner for next president.


ehoneygut

You know, an easy way to make sure he doesn't get elected? The democrats putting up a decent fucking candidate. That's literally all it takes.


SamizdatGuy

Front runner for Republican nomination.


beermit

Just the thought of it makes my skin crawl. This evil weiner running the country would be worse than the orange one.


Theweakmindedtes

Mayne from people unlikely to vote for him already. Like it or not, DeSantis is quite popular among Republicans.

I mean I’m down but let’s make it something we know to be fact. “Ron Desantis is a human trafficker.” Sounds better and doesn’t body shame guys with tiny dicks that aren’t Ron Desantis. I’ll donate!


TransPlantedCajun

For God's sakes Floridians, VOTE this A..hole out of office. We all need to come together and get him out of office. This is not Christian behavior. This is Holocaust type behavior. Republicans there must be a better candidate. Oh yea! Charlie Crist! Wants to legalize marijuana and give the choice to an abortion back to the woman and her DR. Death Santis will ruin our beautiful state of Florida. Why is he in other states campaigning for other's when he has a HUGE teacher crisis on his hands, not to mention the insurance mess in Florida. He is not doing what the citizens of Florida need right now.

Ooooo. The Embassy Suites, even? Really classing the place up with his presence. Maybe he'll stay for the HH and the free breakfast in the morning to take questions from his fans on the best way to pay minors for sex. Hint: He probably won't say Venmo.


TrashPanda100

You might have gotten your Florida scumbags confused. It's easy to do.

Yup! You're right; I absolutely did. They're like garbage-person facsimiles of each other. Though, just because it hasn't come to light yet...


TrashPanda100

You have a point. Until I see evidence to prove he hasn't paid minors for sex, I won't assume he hasn't.


Highplowp

oldbastardbob

Remember when traveling grifters used to at least have to wave a Bible around, shout prayers, and pretend to heal folks in order to bilk people out of their money? Hell, at least there was music and a show. Now they make them buy a ticket to watch a self-absorbed Republican politician spew nonsense that pisses them off at other Americans for 45 minutes. Then, when they get home, they'll send 'em even more money. Shoot, I reckon being a Republican politician is better than starting your own religion. Take that, L. Ron Hubbard.


Ok_Chance_6521
