Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has turned the Sunshine State around and in the process provided a blueprint for other GOP governors to do the same in their states.

That’s made America’s Governor a top target for Democrats and their friends in Big Tech and Big Media.

But team DeSantis just taught one reporter a lesson after catching her on a hot mic while she planned her “gotcha” moment.

It seems Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can’t so much as get out of bed in the morning without triggering the radical Left.

But that hasn’t stopped him from moving onward making the Sunshine State a blueprint for every other state to follow.

And the more America’s Governor charges forward, the harder national and local media try to stop him in his tracks.

Unlike President Joe Biden, Gov. DeSantis frequently makes himself available to the press – including earlier this past week when he spoke in Jacksonville.

Beware of the hot mic

The press conference was about legal reforms to make sure the law works more for victims and less for trial attorneys.

However, while waiting for the Governor to appear, First Coast News reporter Atyia Collins was caught in a hot mic moment while she planned out how to make DeSantis, “uncomfortable.”

“My job here is to ask the tough questions and make him uncomfortable,” Collins said, not realizing her microphone was live.

The colleague she was talking to suggested to Collins that she “go for it.”

Collins replied that she had three gotcha questions in store for DeSantis and added “I’mma try to at least get one.”

It turns out, Collins “uncomfortable” question had nothing to do with legal reforms and was instead about DeSantis’ efforts keeping pornographic books out of children’s libraries – or “banning books,” as Collins inaccurately labeled it.

“We have seen bookshelves in schools empty in response to Florida’s new guidelines on books,” Collins started. “I wonder…”

DeSantis didn’t appear uncomfortable at all, cutting her off to strongly defend his position fighting for students and parents.

“Florida law prohibits an adult from giving a school child pornography,” Gov. DeSantis confidently responded. “That’s been the law for a long time. So, understand, they’re talking about long standing Florida law that’s trying to protect young children.”

Welcome to the school of hard knocks

But the DeSantis team wasn’t done with Collins.

Former Florida Press Secretary and DeSantis’ Rapid Response Director in his 2022 re-election campaign, Christina Pushaw, decided to give Collins a free lesson on social media.

Collins tweeted out a picture from the press conference to her 1,700 followers.

Pushaw forwarded the tweet to her 273,000 followers, adding, “next time make sure you aren’t speaking into a hot mic while you wait to ‘make him uncomfortable.’

Is it a reporter’s job to make elected officials “uncomfortable” – of course.

It’s a shame so many of them only seem interested in doing so by using left-wing talking points to mischaracterize the facts and try to smear Conservatives.

But another one of those reporters just got set straight by DeSantis and his communications team.
