He has gotten so big, that Ron DeSantis, hasn’t he? The potential GOP nominee for president who has made the culture war excruciatingly material by attacking formerly incarcerated people’s ability to vote, transgender people’s ability to get healthcare, and everyone’s ability to understand the word “woke” has blossomed. He’s almost grown now.

Just look at him: our big boy.

If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2022 demands.
