In the surreal Age Of Trump we're living in, candidates are no longer even trying to hide their racism, or more likely, their use of racism to get votes, because after all, it worked for our President. The Republican candidate for Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, said of Democratic challenger Andrew Gillum, who is African American, to potential voters, “you don't want to monkey this up.” Now, he'll claim that he didn't mean it racially, at least I think he will, as it just broke overnight, but, there is, 'mess this up,', which damn near everyone would think of first. Either DeSantis is a moron, or it's a not-even-coded word for, “Keep Florida White.” The thing is, he'll likely get away with it. This is how far from normal our politics has become.
