The public was finally able to put a face to the owner of the renowned conservative Twitter account Libs of TikTok on Tuesday.
Chaya Raichik appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show Tuesday to share her experience as one of the right’s most influential figures.
According to Raichik, DeSantis offered to let her stay in the governor’s mansion to escape the potential risk from angry leftists.
Raichik has been targeted by liberals because, as the name of her account suggests, she simply posts videos of leftists doing and saying radical things on TikTok, the prominent Chinese app.

Her anecdote on Tuesday emerged after Carson asked if anyone reached out to help Raichik after Lorenz exposed her identity in April.
After the doxxing, Raichik shared that she had to hole up in a “safe location.”
“I’m confident we will get through this and come out even stronger. Grateful for all the thoughts and prayers,” Raichik tweeted at the time.
When I was doxxed, someone from Ron DeSantis’ team called me, and she said the governor wanted me to give you a message. He said if you don’t feel safe or you or your family if you need a place to go, to hide, to stay here, you can come to the governor’s mansion. That we have a guest house for you, and you can come and stay as long as you need,” Raichik told Carlson.
“I was almost in tears,” she continued. “I’m living in California and he took time out of his, I’m assuming, extremely busy schedule. And to send someone to call me to make sure I’m safe.”
“I’m so glad I asked that question,” a surprised Carlson replied.
Raichik added, “It was incredible. I don’t even have the words for it. So grateful.”
In a Twitter post later on Tuesday, Raichik added, “I recently got the opportunity to thank @GovRonDeSantis in person. He was so gracious. Brushed it off. He said, ‘of course! You do great work! It wasn’t even a question for him. Genuinely a kindhearted person.”
