"Does anyone believe anything that comes out of this dude's mouth?" Morgan said on Twitter. "Of course it must be in an account that the public and his donors never see. And when will he transfer another $500K? When he spends this first $500K."
The "For the People" lawyer continued, saying that there needs to be a "lawsuit to recover the monies" that Gillum has concealed.
While most would have overlooked Morgan's diatribe on Sunday, Gillum quickly took notice, responding in only the way that Mr. Gillum could. Pinch me if you've heard this before...
"John, remember when you called me to drop out & work for Phil because you couldn't let Gwen win?
Gillum's Tweet reads. "You only care about transactions and distractions. I don't live on your plantation and I don’t take advice from Trump impersonators & DeSantis suck ups."
In perfect Gillum fashion, the former Democratic candidate for Florida governor defended himself in the only way he can -- with identity politics.
Invoking race as a defense is nothing new for Gillum, During last year's election, he famously made race a focal point of his campaign, instead of focusing on substantive policies. Apart from valuing the collective over the individual, Gillum also made claims centered on racism and bigotry. His race against Gov. Ron DeSantis turned ugly rather quickly, with Gillum indirectly hinting at DeSantis being a racist after the current Florida governor warned Florida not to "monkey this up" by electing Gillum.
“I’m not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist,” Gillum said during the Oct. 24 debate on CNN. “I’m simply saying the racists believe he’s a racist."
Gillum and others accusing DeSantis of "racist dog whistle," of course, were completely wrong. As reported by us, numerous Democratic leaders and officials used similar terminology in the past, proving that double standards rule the political left.
Gillum has also played the race card with President Donald Trump last year, accusing the president of providing "cover" to people who are racist.
"I have not called the President a racist, but there are racists in his sympathizers who believe he may be, which is why they go to his aid, which is why he has provided them cover. I believe his cover has led to much of the degradation in our political discourse," Gillum told CNN's John Berman last year.
Recently, Gillum has become even more liberal with his "Boy Who Cried Wolf" syndrome. On Sunday, he used the #RacistInChief to show how far he'll go to stay relevant in a political arena that rejected his progressive tone.
Knowing Gillum's past comments, Morgan could have let this go. But the famous Florida lawyer didn't do that.
"I called on you to drop out because I'm not a socialist and I feared you could not win a general," Morgan said. "Yet I still gave you money and lots of it so you could win but you kept it for yourself."
"And race baiting by referring to my “plantation" is what people with something to hide do," Morgan concluded, exposing Gillum's tribalism.
Morgan would continue in the thread, continuing to grill Gillum.
But the fun didn't stop there. Republican superstar U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz got in on the action, calling out Gillum's nauseating race-baiting and turning the fight between Morgan and Gillum into a WWE handicap match.
"Why is Gillum always the first to make disputes about *race* rather than substance?" the outspoken conservative said.
"Whenever Andrew is criticized about his improper use of money, as here, he deflects w race baiting. Sad"
But that tweet was just the setup for the coup de grâce. Like I veteran boxer, Gaetz saved his haymaker for last.
Gillum has yet to respond to any tweets from Gaetz. Instead, he spent the majority of his Sunday pandering to his political base.
