The former Republican National Committee chairman fired Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Sunday for his incredibly arrogant, supposedly God-approved campaign ad as “retarded profanity” that will annoy most religious people.
The black-and-white ad, first posted by DeSantis’ wife, Casey DeSantis, is narrated by a voice intended to evoke a patriarchal supreme being who tells how God created DeSantis—a “hunter” and a “protector.” – on the eighth day of creation.
DeSantis apparently earned his own 24 hours of special attention from God himself after creating things like the sun, moon and stars, the earth, animals, and every average human being on the planet.
That’s “one of the most retarded profanities I’ve ever heard in my life, and one of the dumbest political ads you could ever make,” said former RNC head Michael Steele, who went to divine school and nearly became a priest. was said on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show.”
But it “tells you what this white Christian nationalism is all about; that is what [the ad] appeals to. It’s not appealing to Sunday churchgoers, people who actually read the Bible,” he added.
“On the eighth day? Really? Church much? … does God need a protector? He could ask Moses to do that part, right?” Steele continued. “What the hell are you talking about? Oh, God needs someone to get out there and challenge the status quo? Have you ever heard of a man named Jesus?”
“I don’t need Ron DeSantis to be Christ. I just want him to be governor, and that’s the problem. These idiots combine it all and think they are one and the same,” he said.
