Democratic narrative

Pushaw has gained fame by making outrageous statements on social media, but most of her notoriety has come from fashioning herself as an "America First" advocate - ironic now that she has been revealed as a foreign agent.

Republican narrative

This is clearly a smear campaign. The only reason Pushaw is being attacked is because she does a great job as press secretary and effectively calls out phony narratives - this is yet another hit piece against the DeSantis administration.
