Panelists on MSNBC, one of the worst, most cringe-worthy news networks on the air, all took a turn slamming, shredding, and just plain belittling Casey DeSantis, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ wife, referring to her as “America’s Karen,” which, if someone would have used that in reference to twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, they would have been viciously attacked by leftist gremlins, despite the fact the description fits.
However, this group of panelists — who happen to be so brain dead a horde of zombies would starve to death in their presence — soon received their just desserts thanks to responses from Gov. DeSantis himself, along with popular podcast host Megyn Kelly, along with a host of others, who pointed out that not only did the disgraceful mockery show their intolerance for strong conservative women, but also of the deep fear they have of Casey DeSantis and her power as a mom, wife, and politico.
“Former Republican Rep. David Jolly, voted out of office in 2016, and Tara Setmayer, the alleged-conservative Lincoln Project member who used to work for CNN, joined the titular host of ‘The Saturday Show With Jonathan Capehart’ Saturday in watching an excerpt of a new DeSantis campaign ad,” TheBlaze reported. ” Rather than engage with the political themes, which they cast as “dark,” or address the specifics of what was said, the pundits decided instead to denigrate Casey DeSantis.”
Jolly remarked, “Casey DeSantis is a fairly compelling political figure in Florida and now nationally. For many, she’s the brighter side to Florida’s angry governor. For others, she’s become America’s Karen.”
That’s when Capehart giggled like a rusty jack-in-the-box and repeated the phrase, “America’s Karen,” as if it were the most brilliant bit of comedy to ever leak out of the human brain, before going on to note that Jolly had “taken his breath away” with the insult. I can’t imagine how low one’s IQ has to be in order be this taken by such a horrifically lame dig.
Here’s more from TheBlaze:
Apparently this term was not yet in the MSNBC host’s lexicon when in 2020 he raged against white women, suggesting that as a political force, they serve to enforce “patriarchal norms [rather] than dismantling them” and protect that system “where they and their children might lose the shared superiority and protection they get by being attached to powerful White men.”
The MSNBC host, who elsewhere stated that men can be women, further insinuated white women maintain so-called institutional racism and that “the Democratic Party should stop wasting so much time on the lost cause of suburban wine moms.”
A report from the BBC said that the term “Karen,” used by Jolly as a pejorative, can be defined as a slang term “referencing a specific type of middle-class white woman, who exhibits behaviours that stem from privilege. … ‘Karen’ is associated with the kind of person who … is anti-vaccination, and carries out racist micro-aggressions.”
A piece by the New York Post backed that reading of the phrase, stating it “has become social-media shorthand meaning a middle-aged white woman … who makes a big fuss, and is not-so-blissfully ignorant.”
“Casey DeSantis, 43, is a mother of three and former news journalist who battled breast cancer and won. Extra to her successful career on television, she has championed various causes — such as cancer research and hurricane relief — for the betterment of her state while also actively supporting her husband, Gov. Ron DeSantis, both in Florida and in his current presidential bid,” TheBlaze reported.
Co-panelist Tara Setmayer went on to make the suggestion that DeSantis was a “Serena Waterford wannabe,” which is a reference to one of the major characters in the obscenely overrated dystopian novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” by Margaret Atwood. Waterford is the bride of the bad guy in the book, Commander Frederick Waterford. She then said that “there’s all kinds of names” for Casey DeSantis, once again proving the political left, and make no mistake, Setmayer is a leftist, are absolutely classless.

So how did Casey DeSantis’ hubby respond? He said that being given the slur was a “badge of honor.”
“My wife is an incredibly strong first lady of Florida, a fantastic mother and a great wife, and that threatens the left,” said the governor and current presidential candidate. “So she and I kind of shrug it off because we know it just shows they view her as a threat, because the message that she was bringing in Iowa about the rights of parents and how we are not going to take this anymore with the left trying to indoctrinate our kids, they understand that that resonates not just with Republican parents, with independent parents, and, yes, with Democrat parents.”
He then added that his wife is “a great advocate for families, a great advocate for children. And I’m thankful that she’s my wife. And I’m really honored that she’s willing to go out there and press the case. And so we wear criticism from MSNBC as a badge of honor.”

Megyn Kelly was far more brutal in her takedown of the panel, stating during her podcast, “If [critics] were saying this sort of thing about a leftie, these same [commentators] would be outraged by the rampant misogyny. But as always, it’s always fair game against a Republican wife. … They hate her in a special way. It’s almost coming at her more viciously than with [former first lady] Melania [Trump].”
She went on to add, “I think the reason they are reacting so angrily to [Casey DeSantis] is they accurately perceive her as a threat.”
