DeSantis greeted by ‘pudding fingers’ chant in Iowa

August 12, 2023

At the DeSantis event, Kara Ryan of Des Moines said she and her aunt, Heather Ryan, were there on behalf of a political action committee called “Bitches Get Stuff Done,” that supports abortion rights. DeSantis, joined by his wife Casey, still tried to give remarks. “People like that,” he said, referring to the two protesters drowning him out, “are what’s holding this country back.”The handful of veterans gathered erupted in applause. But the event was hurried, DeSantis’ meeting with the veterans brief. DeSantis is set to appear at events in several other Iowa towns Friday as part of his 99-county tour, before attending the Iowa state fair on Saturday.
