The Florida The governor was asked about Oliver Anthony’s country hit and why he thinks it has become so popular in conservative circles.
“Our country is in decline. This decline is not inevitable. It’s a choice. We have to send Joe Biden “Back to his basement and reversing America’s decline,” he said at Wednesday night’s debate.
“And it starts with understanding that we need to reverse bidenomics so middle-class families have a chance to thrive again. We cannot thrive as a country if you work hard and can’t afford groceries, a car or a new home while Hunter Biden can make hundreds of thousands of dollars from crappy paintings. That’s wrong.”
And he added, “Neither can we succeed if Congress spends trillions and millions of dollars.” These rich men north of Richmond put us in this situation.
“Finally we have to lower the gas prices. We must open all energy production. We will once again be dominant in this country in terms of energy. I’ve shown it’s possible in the state of Florida. I promised you as your President that we will get the job done and I will not let you down.”
X users were quick to mock Mr. DeSantis for answering the question.
“A DeSantis has no idea what rich men north of Richmond mean. He’s so out of touch,” one person wrote on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
And another added, “DeSantis exits the gate with, “Joe Biden blah blah waaa waa Keller blah Hunter waa waa rich men north of Richmond are to blame heehaw.”
“Instead of asking DeSantis what Rich Men North of Richmond meant, they might as well have had him sing it,” wrote another user.
And another person wrote: “Fox asks the first question with ‘Rich Men North of Richmond’ and DeSantis names Hunter Biden in his first answer. Gotta love this clown show.”
