DeSantis also called out media for continuing to push hit pieces against his administration.

I think what we need to understand is that these legacy D.C. and New York outletswe don’t care what you think anymore. We know you peddle narratives. We know you lie. We know you don’t care about the facts. And so you can try to smear me or anyone in my administration all you want to. All that’s going to do is embolden us to continue moving forward for the people in Florida,” Desantis said.

他总结, 说, “I think it was a totally ridiculous attempted smear and it’ll have absolutely no impact on anything that we’re doing in our office.

In a comment to Fox News, Pushaw said, “I am blessed to work for a leader who genuinely does not care what legacy media thinks about him, his agenda, or his team. The point of FARA is transparency, and I’ve always been transparent and open about my experience working in Eastern Europe, which concluded months before I started working for Governor DeSantis. As soon as I was told that I might be required to register, I worked proactively to complete the registration as soon as possible.
