MSNBC presenter Joy Reed and her guests on Friday stormed Florida Gov. Republican Ron DeSantis, calling him an “authoritarian leader” and claiming he was “preparing to become the next Great Wizard of the Republican Party.”
Addressing her guests, Democrat strategist Fernand Amandi and MSNBC contributor Dean Abeidal, Reed opened the segment by sharing her fears that DeSantis is “creating essentially a republican superpower where it doesn’t matter how you vote, where it’s fully controlled by voters.” .
“Is there a way to stop this?” She asked before giving the floor to the guests.
Amanda, a frequent visitor to MSNBC, gave her assessment of the situation with DeSantis: “Glad you asked the most important question, because for 246 years in this country the answer to this question is – is there a way to stop it? – it would be: “Well, yes! You can stop it in the ballot box in November this year.”

While he admitted he didn’t believe voting could work more in Florida, he added: “I’m not so sure that even if the will of the electorate calls for an end to this madness going on in Florida, it’s because Florida, I don’t think it’s a democracy. “
“I think Florida is a truly authoritarian state modeled on Hungary, Orban,” Amandi said, referring to European leader Viktor Orban.
The strategist pointed out that a CPAC event was held in Hungary this year, at which Orban spoke, and assured that “Ron DeSantis is trying to create a type of authoritarian leader who will eventually run for president of the United States.”
“Absolutely,” Reed replied, then passed the microphone to Abeidal to comment on how the Republican People’s Government is using Florida as a model for its plans to run the country.
Adding to the drama of the conversation, Abeidala said: “We will see refugees from Florida coming to New York seeking freedom. And please, we would like you to be here in our state. ”
“Look, they’re doing DeSantistan,” Abeidala said jokingly, adding, “It’s going to be the worst trip Disney has ever run. He banned books, banned black history, banned the pronunciation of the word gay, and banned hormone therapy for transgender teens. What a cruelty. “

“Studies have shown that transgender adolescents undergoing hormone therapy are 40% less likely to commit suicide or attempted suicide. He knows it. He doesn’t care. This is cruelty, ”he said. “It’s an idea – like Trump – an idea, let’s hunt down those who are vulnerable, instead of helping them.”
Abeidala then accused the Republican Party base of not advocating for life: “The base that says it stands for life does not care about the sanctity of life. They don’t care about the kids. They don’t care about people in need. “

The MSNBC member ended his speech with a napkin, equating DeSantis and Republicans to the KKK, saying, “I’m worried. I’m looking at Florida. I look at Ron DeSantis, who is being prepared to become the next Great Wizard of the Republican Party at the national level. We should all be alarmed that, [he’s] trying to do in Florida, nationally. It’s very disturbing. “
“100 percent,” Reed replied.
