Hochul Swipes At DeSantis, Invites Late-Pregnancy Abortion Seekers Up North

One can’t blame New York’s Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul for a redirect move. After all, she inherited the job from a corrupt Democratic predecessor who now seems intent on taking the job back.

Her lieutenant governor, also a Democrat, just resigned after an arrest on bribery allegations. Her constituents are increasingly antsy over the stagnant economy, which struggles to recover from COVID-19 lockdowns and fearmongering.

Her state bled more than 350,000 residents in 2021, a record-setting decline, and outsiders are frequently skeptical of visiting because of violence in the state’s biggest city.

So why not lash out at someone else – in this case, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.

On Thursday, Hochul tweeted her disgust with DeSantis after Florida’s chief executive signed a bill restricting abortions to the first 15 weeks of pregnancy.

While pro-lifers cheer, the bill will have little effect on the abortion industry, since about 95 percent of abortions in Florida occur in the time frame spelled out in Florida’s new law.

Still, Hochul was not pleased.

“Smiling from ear to ear as he rips away the reproductive rights of Floridians. It’s cruel and despicable,” Hochul posted on Twitter with a photo showing an obviously pleased DeSantis signing the new law.

“To anyone seeking abortion care, know that you are welcome in New York,” Hochul added.

“After what just happened, you should focus on protecting people in your own state. In fact, the only reason you should think about Governor DeSantis is to ask yourself why hundreds of thousands fled New York to live in Florida,” former GOP congressman and current Fox News host Trey Radel tweeted back at Hochul, referring to the mass shooting on New York’s subway last week.

“Interesting choice of words, ‘rips,’ as you talk about abortion, gov. Evil is as evil does,” another Twitter user responded.

Another person replied on Twitter, “She says this while her residents are moving to Florida in record numbers. Yeah, Florida is doing it wrong.”

As The Blaze pointed out, Hochul is supposedly Irish Catholic, and the day after slamming DeSantis, she had the audacity to send out Good Friday well-wishes to her Twitter followers.    

That would make her “Catholic” in the same way that prominent abortion supporters in Washington – like President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – are Catholic.
