On that community service thing - If that $500 gets donated to a food bank, assuming food banks are allowed in DeSantis’ Florida, the food bank can multiply the value of the money by using it as matching cash. Also assuming the judicial folks don’t keep it for donuts and coffee.

Watch Trump Plead The Fifth

The former president invoked his 5th Amendment right not to incriminate himself some 400 odd times in last summer’s deposition by New York Attorney General Tish James. CBS obtained some of the video of the deposition. Watch.

No thank you! Watching the orange fat guy take the 5th is not how I want to start my day. It is not “must see TV”.

DeSantis might characterize a food bank as a liberal “woke” enterprise. He doesn’t give a shit about hunger or poverty. He wants Florida and then America to be a land of fascism with him as dictator for life.

Ilhan Omar?

Since the most radical faction of the GOP now runs it, I would say the Republican’s have numerous problems with Ilhan Omar:

  1. Female.

  2. She is not white.

  3. She is not christian.

  4. She is not white christian nationalist.
