This week, a panel discussion on MSNBC regarding Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was actually positive for a minute or two.
Chuck Todd and the rest of the far left panel admitted that in Florida, the COVID numbers aren’t bad and the economy is doing well under Ron DeSantis.
Of course, they quickly found other ways to criticize him. He is a Republican, after all.
Wow: MSNBC Panel Grumpily Admits Florida Is…Actually Doing Pretty Well Under DeSantis
Matt covered this brain worms nuttery from GOP-operative-turned-MSNBC-leftist Nicolle Wallace earlier in the week, so consider the following clip a complimentary palate cleanser. This is about as close as you will ever get to an admission of failure from the left, which has been absolutely flogging the narrative that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (“DeathSentence”) has been presiding over a toxic hellscape in his state.
They’ve thrown everything they’ve got at him, but the results are in, and even these MSNBC panelists can’t help but notice. This is remarkable not because it’s revelatory in any way; it’s remarkable because of who the messengers are – offering these admissions on national television through gritted teeth:
Symone Sanders was a Bernie backer who went to work for the Biden administration, recently joining the rolling exodus from the vice president’s office. She starts by reminding viewers that she has lots of criticisms of DeSantis, and ends the clip cautioning against “heaping a little too much praise” on the governor, which does not seem like much of a risk at that network.
Here’s the video:
MSNBC's panel grudgingly admits that "if you really look at the numbers" from Covid, "Florida actually came out all right…And the economy is strong."
Less than 30 seconds later, they say it's "not all rosy" and "caution us from heaping a little too much praise" on DeSantis. pic.twitter.com/EJuZ7ppC3H

If Trump doesn’t run in 2024, DeSantis will easily be the front runner.
Then there will be no pleasant talk about him on MSNBC ever again.
