Ron DeSantis says he gets attacked by the media ‘more than anybody running for office’

Brand asked DeSantis how he deals with "the tension of being a representative of establishment forces..."


In a recent appearance on Stay Free with Russel Brand, Florida Gov. and GOP presidential primary candidate Ron DeSantis made a statement that will undoubtedly prove controversial to many, confidently claiming that he gets “attacked by the corporate press” more than any other person, including former President Donald Trump.  

DeSantis’ remarks came after show host Russell Brand asked how he is managing to deal with “the tension of being a representative of establishment forces while acknowledging that many people no longer trust the media” in addition to government and American institutions. 

“Well, one I would, I would push back on this idea that I'm representing establishment forces,” DeSantis began. “I get attacked by the corporate press, more than anybody running for office more than Joe Biden and now more than Donald Trump, because I think the corporate press views me as a bigger threat.”

The Florida governor then claimed that the corporate press understands that he will “beat Biden” whereas they think Trump would lose and that even if he did, the press believes he would be “distracted” and consequently unable to deliver.

Some have raised doubts about DeSantis’ assertions of being the corporate press’ number one target, including conservative commentator Sebastian Gorka, who sarcastically asked, “Can someone send me the links to when [DeSantis’] home was raided by the FBI and his campaign illegally surveilled?”

Numerous smaller accounts weighed in as well, echoing similar sentiments:
