DeSantis Blasts ‘The View’ Hosts for ‘Lying about’ His Campaign

Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has fired back at the co-hosts of “The View” after he caught them “lying about” his campaign.

During Tuesday’s broadcast of the controversial ABC propaganda show, the hosts claimed, without evidence, that Gov. DeSantis is scamming his campaign donors.

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former Trump aide-turned-anti-GOPer, used false claims to explain to the viewers how the governor is allegedly cheating his donors.

“For folks who aren’t familiar, what a lot of these apps and websites do is you click to give once, and it actually signs you up to recurrently give,” Griffin claimed.

“It is so unfair. It is a grift. It is terrible.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin agreed, arguing, without evidence, that “people are losing their homes, losing their savings.”


DeSantis shot back at the hosts’ false claims.

“I got accused by some of these people on one of these shows about, ‘oh, he’s raising all this – people want to donate to him,'” DeSantis said.

“And they tried to say that like, we had auto-donate where it keeps going every month.

“We do not do that in my campaign.

“We do not do that auto because we don’t want people to have these charges if that’s not something they didn’t agree with.

“So they tried to act like I was doing that and then some of these media went and said, ‘Wait a minute, he’s not doing that.’

“So they were lying about that.

“You donate. Fine. You can click a button to make it auto.

“At the end of the day, we have folks, some people are on fixed income, very limited, and they will donate a certain amount and that’s very meaningful.

“Not everybody has the capacity to write these big checks, we would never do automatic unless you personally as the contributor, press that button.

“And so I think it’s very important, particularly as Republicans, when you’re raising money amongst your own people, that you’re doing it in a way that has honesty.

“And so if my name is being used to trick people into providing donations for something that they don’t necessarily want to do, that is definitely wrong,” he said.


Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy investigated the claims made by the hosts of “The View” and quickly debunked them.

“I just checked & the WinRed donation page for DeSantis’s gubernatorial campaign does not automatically make a donation a recurring one, but instead it’s a box you have to voluntarily select yourself,” Dunleavy explained while providing a screenshot of the page.
