Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signs 'Don't Say Gay' bill during creepy photo op enlisting children as props

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis hands out pens to children after signing the state's 'Don't Say Gay' bill into law.

Florida governor Ron DeSantis signed his state's 'Don't Say Gay' into law during an absolutely creepy photo-op as seen above. Throughout this entire drama, DeSantis has been attempting to portray himself as a protector of children. But signing a bill which sends a message to children that their families are somehow inferior isn't exactly a message that a protector of children would send. And then exploiting kids as figurative co-signers of that message is downright shameful. 

DeSantis is exploiting same delusionary mindset that Donald Trump has about the 2020 election, i.e. that he is on the side of good fighting evil and corruption.  The fantasy would be amusing except for the reality it obscures. The 'Don't Say Gay' bill is a fraud. It attacks a 'problem' which doesn't exists. It exploits a fear which shouldn't exist. It scapegoats an innocent group of people, which includes children. And its benefits are also nonexistent.

The only thing which exists right now is the fact that DeSantis eagerly exploited children in his attack on LGBTQ kids and families. The bill was unnecessary. The photo op was simply evil.

And the most tragic thing is that it's all performance. DeSantis is a very calculating politician. He knows that his bill is red meat to feed the GOP base and get him closer to the White House. In the long run DeSantis doesn't care about protecting children; not LGBTQ kids and certainly not the kids he enlisted in his photo op.

Ron DeSantis only cares about Ron DeSantis and he has no problem building a road to the White House paved with the the bodies, wrecked self-esteem, and spiritual ruination of LGBTQ people. But now, he has invited children to help him pave that road.

Americans should be more concerned with what DeSantis is teaching our kids. He seems to be the one doing the indoctrination.

UPDATE - and what's more, the signing was rushed. So much for fanfare. Cowardice seems to be the order of the day for DeSantis.
