The decade's most triggering comedy
Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis blasted Vice President Kamala Harris in a letter on Monday evening over her recent trip to the state where, according to the experts who created it, she made false claims about the state’s African American history curriculum.
In the letter, the Governor DeSantis invited Harris to immediately come to the state so they could have face-to-face meeting this week over her remarks.
“In Florida we are unafraid to have an open and honest dialogue about the issues. And you clearly have no trouble ducking down to Florida on short notice,” DeSantis said. “So given your grave concern (which, I must assume, is sincere) about what you think our standards say, I am officially inviting you back down to Florida to discuss our African American History standards. We will be happy to host you here in Tallahassee. I will ask Dr. William Allen — instrumental in the development of our impressive new standards — to join. We welcome you, of course, to bring Randi Weingarten or someone else who shares your view about the standards.”
Dr. William Allen, former chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and Florida’s African American History Standards Workgroup member, slammed Harris last week over her “lies” about the curriculum after she seized on one sentence from the 216-page outline to make her false claims.
“I am prepared to meet as early as Wednesday of this week, but of course want to be deferential to your busy schedule should you already have a trip to the southern border planned for that day,” DeSantis added. “Please let me know as soon as possible. What an example we could set for the nation — a serious conversation on the substance of an important issue! I hope you’re feeling up to it.”
