Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is receiving much praise for his efforts to bring home Americans trapped in the war zone in Israel.
But he’s also looking to monetize those maneuvers to bolster his presidential campaign.
On Thursday, the New York Post reported that DeSantis’ campaign is selling “DeSantis Airways” T-shirts as part of its merchandise offerings.
The shirt retails for $28.
News of the shirt was released as a third flight of evacuees from Israel landed in Tampa. The Tampa Free Press reported that DeSantis has brought home 544 Americans from the hazard area in the Middle East this week.
And as the Tampa Free Press reported on Friday, DeSantis has also shipped supplies into Israel.
Eighty-five pallets of goods were delivered to Israel.
The cargo included items such as bandages, hospital gowns, IV kits, needles and syringes, ventilators, and surgical gloves. In addition, DeSantis also shipped to Israel children’s toys, sleeping bags, personal hygiene products and clothing.
Meanwhile big airlines such as American, Delta, and United have canceled or suspended flights out of Israel because of the war Israel is fighting against the Palestinian terror group Hamas.
The T-shirts, however, are the latest of DeSantis’ efforts to capitalize off his liberal critics.
As the Tampa Free Press has reported, DeSantis earlier this year released yellow aprons that recalled the Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flag and that featured a gas stove to protest a Biden administration plan to eliminate them from the market.
After Brown won his first race in 2021, a sports reporter asked him about the crowd chanting “Let’s go Brandon” in the background, when in fact fans were yelling “F— Joe Biden.”
DeSantis’ 2022 campaign team also distributed coffee mugs that said “I (heart) [either New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or California]. But I wish my governor was Ron DeSantis.”
And then there was the item that started it all, a pair of flip-flops that said “Fauci Can Pound Sand,” a reference to Dr. Anthony Fauci and the numerous times he has reversed course on COVID-19 policies.
DeSantis also released early in 2023 a black T-shirt that features the image of an alligator overlaid on the map of Florida, while declaring Florida is “where woke goes to die.”
