16 states just turned to Ron DeSantis and said “GAY GAY GAY”

Last week, Florida teens and their families, along with LGBTQ advocacy groups, filed a lawsuit against the state’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay Law.”Well the stakes just got higher.16 states are now suing Florida to block the Parental Rights in Education Bill, arguing the legislation harms students and faculty and lacks educational merit.The plaintiffs include the District of Columbia, as well as New Jersey, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, and Oregon.“It’s my job to stand up for people who are harmed by discrimination–and what harms Florida kids, parents, and teachers harms every one of us,” said Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison in a statement.“Essential to being able to live with dignity, safety, and respect is being able to say loud and clear who you are as a human being, to speak your truth. But under this law, Florida kids can’t speak their truth.

An emotional Eric Trump almost broke down sobbing on Fox News last night
Eric Trump took a break from making macaroni art to go on Fox News last night, where he almost started crying while speaking to Sean Hannity about the recent allegations highlighted by Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, the special counsel appointed under Donald Trump to investigate the FBI’s probing of Russian interference in the 2016 election.On Friday, Durham alleged that a tech executive with ties to the Clinton campaign “exploited” access to White House data by peeking at internet traffic from Trump Tower and the White House in an effort to to find “derogatory” information about the ex-president.“At what point is it acceptable to break into the servers at the White House? That’s the most cherished building in this country that has the most top secrets, everything in this country that runs our government,” Eric, sounding particularly high-pitched, told Hannity.Related: Lara Trump just proved money can’t buy classHe then went on to question why prosecutors weren’t looking into this, concluding that it’s obviously because his father is probably going to win back the presidency in 2024.“Sean, where are the prosecutors right now? The same prosecutors that go after my father every single day for nothing, right? Just because he’s clearly the frontrunner for 2024!”Becoming increasingly more unhinged, Eric then went on to accuse Hillary Clinton of “fraud” and “all sorts of offenses”.
