reports MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin.But that wasn’t the end of DeSantis’ pained interaction with one of the men responsible for defeating fascism.

Iowa governor Kim Reynolds, a Republican, yelled to DeSantis that the veteran would also like his signature. So DeSantis scribbled his name on a piece of paper; and once again, moved on to the next voter.When asked again whether he knew there was a WW II veteran in attendance, DeSantis demurred. “I know, I signed something for him!” he yelled.It's worth reading the whole anecdote:"Governor, I think there's a World War II veteran back there!" an aide told DeSantis as the crowd swarmed.DeSantis gave a nod in the veteran's direction, flashed a thumbs-up, thanked him for his service and turned back to someone else…Doesn’t get the hint?He has zero personality.President Biden would have taken the time to talk to the veteran even if the security detail was trying to move along.Now, nobody expects DeSantis, a champion of odious legislation against gay people, to be familiar with the 10 best LGBTQ+ military films worth watching.

But he must be aware of WW II, right? They haven’t banned those books in Florida schools…yet. Making matters worse, since WW II occurred between 1939-45, it’s fair to assume the aforementioned veteran is well into his 90s.

Taking extra time to meet with a veteran is a layup for any politician–but especially a presidential hopeful.Then again, this is Ron “Don’t Say Gay” DeSantis we’re talking about.
