Democrats are demanding jail for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for his rhetorical suggestion that someone grab the “little elf,” Anthony Fauci, and chuck him “across the Potomac.” . . .
But he’s now in the news, at RightJournalism, for the “threat” that came from DeSantis. . .
WOW. Gov. Ron DeSantis BLASTS Fauci:
“I’m just sick of seeing him … Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac!”

That’s a threat, Democrats now allege, presumably because it is physically possible for someone to grab Fauci and throw him across the Potomac.
The report explained DeSantis made the comment at a Florida GOP event in Seminole County, and now Democrats are demanding prosecutors use it to jail the governor.
“According to Dash Dobrofsky, it is illegal to threaten a public official with violence. In fact, it is a federal crime that is punishable by up to 10 years in prison,” the report said.
Governor Ron DeSantis spoke to a Florida crowd and yelled “somebody needs to grab” Dr. Anthony Fauci and “chuck him across the Potomac.” It is illegal to threaten a public official with violence. In fact, it is a federal crime that is punishable by up to 10 years in Prison.
