The Florida Governor's race took a turn for the weird yesterday when congressman Ron DeSantis released this weird and sinister little ad yesterday. It's meant to be cute and "playful", but that's just what makes it all the more appalling.

An ad where you tease your toddler to "build the wall", read her "The Art of the Deal", and make her wear a MAGA hat is tantamount to child abuse,

Florida GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis wants to "Make America Great Again," and if he has his way, his young daughter will too.

Just a month out from his gubernatorial primary, DeSantis's campaign released a new spot that plays up his endorsement from President Trump and jokingly shows him giving his young children a crash-course in everything Trump.

He encourages his daughter to "build the wall" while she plays with blocks; reads his son Trump's book, "The Art of the Deal"; and tries to teach his children to say "Make America Great Again" and "Big League," two of the president's catchphrases.

The ad is meant to highlight Trump's endorsement, which has been a central piece of DeSantis's push against Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. DeSantis is one of the president's chief defenders on Capitol Hill, a frequent guest on Fox News, and has also traveled on Air Force One with the president.
