In the latter half of Tuesday’s edition of The View, gay actor Billy Porter screamed like a banshee as he denounced Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis for cracking down on child exploitation at drag shows. The unhinged Porter screamed that DeSantis had launched a “civil war of the mind” and conspiratorially shouted about how investigators needed to “follow the money.” His manic tirade received nothing but strong approval from the rest of the cast.
Joy Behar noted that in the eight months since Porter was last on the show, “things have only escalated” in terms of DeSantis’s legal challenges to kids being at drag shows. “What do you make of the fact that we're still talking about this, and that it’s happening in other states too, not just Florida?” she wondered. “There's this war against trans people,” she answered for him.
Things immediately dipped into the conspiratorial as Porter shouted about the need to “follow the money” like it was Watergate.
