Twitter spent much of Wednesday night holding its breath after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s press secretary Christina Pushaw teased a “MAJOR” announcement sure to cause the “liberal meltdown of the year.”
“MAJOR announcement tomorrow morning from @GovRonDeSantis,” Pushaw tweeted at 9:30 p.m.
That was enough to start the popcorn popping and the rumor mill buzzing, as DeSantis supporters from across the country pressed Pushaw for more details.
“Oh, come on! Give us SOMETHING!” pleaded one user. “A hint? A sneak peek? Anything? No?”
“Then it wouldn’t be a surprise,” Pushaw replied coyly.
Naturally, at the top of everyone’s mind is the possible announcement of a presidential run from the governor who has led Florida in the war against wokeism.
Let’s go President DeSantis

One DeSantis fan pointed to the governor’s positive internal polling numbers that show him up “by 15.”
“I’m a state spokesperson so I don’t see internal polls,” Pushaw responded. “I can tell you this is an official announcement not a campaign one.”
**Update: Governor DeSantis made a major announcement Thursday morning concerning Florida’s law enforcement.
Today, @GovRonDeSantis announces we are suspending Soros-backed 13th circuit state attorney Andrew Warren for neglecting his duties as he pledges not to uphold the laws of the state.
It is dangerous to Floridians that state attorneys are neglecting criminal prosecution.

Stating that progressive, soft-on-crime prosecutors won’t be tolerated, DeSantis suspended Soros-backed state attorney Andrew Warren for neglecting his duties.
THIS IS HOW YOU GOVERN.

The hopes of those praying for a DeSantis ticket in 2024 were dashed, at least, for now. In a follow-up tweet, Pushaw confirmed that the announcement was not campaign-related.
“He already announced he’s running for re-election as governor,” Pushaw stated. “All I can say about the surprise announcement tomorrow is that it’s not about anything campain related. It’s official business.”
This led to more wild speculation, with some guesses giving Pushaw a much-needed laugh.
“He’s changing his pronouns to they/them?” a user predicted.
“How did you guess,” she retorted, adding a laughing emoji.
“We are seceding from the Union?” asked another hopeful user.
We are seceding from the Union? 🤞🤞

In truth, it’s hard to imagine what else Ron DeSantis could do to ruin a liberal’s day.
From refusing to lock Floridians down or muzzle his residents, from his commitment to empowering parents and encouraging them to participate in their children’s education to his public spanking of Mickey Mouse, and from disavowing drag queen shows for kids to standing up for those who choose to decline the COVID-19 vaccines, DeSantis has been sparking liberal meltdowns on almost a daily basis for more than a year now.
It is precisely why so many in America want him in the Oval Office.
Many Californians cheered when DeSanstis’s office shut down a misguided attempt by California Governor Gavin Newsom to lure Floridians to the Golden State following his support of the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade.

One wonders how DeSantis could possibly top what he has already accomplished.
But, says Pushaw, they will have to wait until the press conference to find out.
Regardless of what he says, many are already praising Pushaw for her skill at starting a buzz.
“This,” said one laughing Twitter user, “is why I [love] you.”
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 this is why I ❤️ you 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/rPUypADK4H
