DeSantis claps back to MSNBC host labeling wife ‘America’s Karen’


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis defended his wife Casey Monday after left-wing commentators tastelessly dubbed her “America’s Karen” over the weekend.

“My wife is an incredibly strong first lady of Florida, a fantastic mother and a great wife, and that threatens the left,” DeSantis, 44, told Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.”

Over the weekend, MSNBC analyst David Jolly, a former Republican congressman from Florida, hurled the “Karen” epithet at the breast cancer survivor and mom of three during a segment on the channel’s “Saturday Show with Jonathan Capehart.”

“Casey DeSantis is a fairly compelling political figure in Florida, and now nationally. For many, she’s the brighter side to Florida’s angry governor. For others, she’s become America’s Karen,” Jolly said during the segment, drawing chuckles from his fellow panelists.
