‘Who knows when the end is going to be. I think, you know because of all of this mismanagement, I think Biden plunges this country into a recession,’ Florida governor said.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Wednesday said he agreed with Tesla billionaire Elon Musk’s assessment that puppet President Joe Biden is desperately reliant on his teleprompter.
Speaking to reporters at Hub City Smokehouse & Grill in Crestview, Fla., DeSantis concurred with Musk’s assessment of Biden’s apparent ineptitude, commenting the president’s inability to get gas prices under control represents a major failure.
“So, I think what Elon Musk said the other day about whoever puts that stuff on the teleprompter is who the president is… because you just never know,” DeSantis told a crowd.
The governor was referencing Musk’s criticism of Biden Monday during a podcast interview, where the SpaceX founder noted Biden’s true handler is the teleprompter operator.
“The real president is whoever controls the teleprompter,” Musk told the All-In Podcast. “The path to power is the path to the teleprompter.”
“I do feel like if somebody were to accidentally lean on the teleprompter, it’s going to be like Anchorman,” Musk added.
Prior to the remark, the Florida governor highlighted gas prices had spiked in the state to $5 a gallon, with the bumbling Biden administration blaming the crisis on everything but themselves.
“This gas is going up even more. I mean, I think it’s going to be, I’m seeing it close to $5 in some parts of Florida,” DeSantis said.
“It was probably about $4.15 just a couple of weeks ago, so it’s going up. They’re not doing energy in the United States. Now they’re saying they want to get oil from Maduro in Venezuela. All that’s going to do is just line his pockets. And actually it’ll help Russia. They’re always talking about Russia and Putin, well they have a very close relationship with Maduro and Putin. So they’re doing that and they’ll beg OPEC but they will not do more energy in the United States. And the result is that they’ve really reduced our ability to be energy independent, they’re canceling oil and gas leases in places like Alaska. And the people, the ones who have to fill up their gas tanks, are the ones that are paying the price for those bad policies.”
“But this is a huge failure,” DeSantis continued, going on to slam Biden’s mishandling of the economy, and predicting $8 a gallon fuel price spikes in California.
“It’s really difficult for a lot of people and we have not even hit summer driving season yet. Unless they reverse course, you’re going to see it over $5 for unleaded, and in places like California, it’ll probably be $7 or $8 because of all the taxes they have. And that’s going to be a huge huge hit to a lot of working people. And the thing with energy, when that’s more expensive, it actually permeates everything else as well. Because everyone, when you’re producing things, when you’re doing this, you need energy, and if those costs are going up, all of the other things go. So it helps fuel inflation in more ways than just what you’re seeing at the gas pump. I think if you look at the time Biden came in, you see major inflation, and they were warned about printing all of this money, they said you could keep doing it, that there would be no inflation, but the result has been that there has been really sustained inflation for the first time in over 40 years. Who knows when the end is going to be. I think, you know because of all of this mismanagement, I think Biden plunges this country into a recession.”
DeSantis also said he was hopeful Musk’s acquisition of Twitter would be successful and put an end to the company’s history of censorship.
“The only reason they worry about it is they don’t want people to know the truth. Trying to stifle dissent, and they’re trying to muzzle people who are speaking out because they see the nonsense that’s going on around them. I mean just think about what the NCAA did with the women’s swim championship. You have a swimmer that swims on the men’s team for three years, and then all of a sudden says they’re going to identify as a woman swimmer, and swim against the women, and then they give that the national championship? Over these women who had been training for a long time. And the second place was actually from Florida, who had won a silver medal in the Olympics. So she got robbed of a national championship, because the NCAA is really trying to make us complicit in something that’s false. That’s what you’re going to get, they will absolutely do whatever they can with social media to try to stifle dissent.”
“He’s going to open it up and then their ideas are going to have to withstand scrutiny. And they don’t want to have put their ideas to scrutiny, because if you’re telling me things like a man can get pregnant, that’s not true,” DeSantis added.
“And we know that’s not true and we’re going to be able to say that’s not true. And they don’t want that. They want you to be muzzled. So, disinformation bureau, I think it’s probably unconstitutional anyways. But clearly if they’re subcontracting out these social media companies to do their dirty work, that’s violating the constitution indirectly, and they’re just as liable for that. So we’ll be on guard.”
As of writing, Musk’s Twitter deal has been put on hold until the company can prove only 5% of users are bots, with some speculating that number could be as high as 90%.
