Don't "Monkey It Up" says Trumpanzee candidate in Florida

This is the same guy who had that creepy Trump follower commercial featuring his newborn.
 
It should, but won't, be a slam dunk for Gillum in a state that has been abused for eight years by Governor lizard-man Scott. And is suffering from mass pollution while Scott cut hundreds of millions in environmental care from the state budget over his tenure. But at least the state mandated "In God We Trust" be displayed at every public school.

GOP candidate for Fla. governor says voters will ‘monkey this up’ if they elect his black rival

WASHINGTON —Representative Ron DeSantis, the newly christened Republican gubernatorial candidate in Florida, said Wednesday that voters would ‘‘monkey this up’’ if they elect his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum, who would be the state’s first African-American governor.

During an interview on Fox News, DeSantis praised Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, as ‘‘an articulate spokesman’’ for those holding ‘‘far-left views,’’ but warned he would be damaging to the state.

‘‘The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state,’’ DeSantis said. ‘‘That is not going to work. That’s not going to be good for Florida.’’

A Fox News Channel host later said the network did not condone DeSantis’ language.

The term "monkey it up" is a legit term and a nice way of saying "fucking it up".  This guy might be a total racist, but I'm not sure this is an instance of him being racist.

I've never heard that term in my life.

It doesn't even make the only decent lists I could find.

Perhaps you have a few specific examples in mind.

I did find this, to be fair. https://twitter.com/respectablelaw/status/1034905986040057858

It kind of directly contradicts you though.

"Stop monkleying around" is a common phrase, this sounds like a botched version to sound subtly dangerous and get attention and be able to deny everything since he didn't actually say anything.

I dunno.  I heard it growing up.  Monkey about or monkey around are similar.

I have heard both monkey it up and nigger-rigged.  I never knew they were related to one another though.  As mentioned above, I figured monkey it up was akin to monkey around.

Not referencing monkeys and apes when talking about black people is like the easiest thing to do if you don't want to look racist. Especially if you say a common phrase where "fuck, screw, mess, and Jack" are more widely used.

    I'm with Xerxes & everyone else on this one.  I've never heard monkeying up & unless he's used it in reference to white people & anyone else.  I'd call bullshit on this.  Xerxes example of monkeying it up links back to N- rigging.  Which was just another way to hide their racism & demean African-Americans.

1. The guy is running against a black guy so you'd think he'd no better.

2. He has a commercial where he is teaching his daughter to build a wall to keep brown people out.

Lol!  If he's not speaking out against Russians coming to Florida to give birth to their children in Trump properties.  I think the problem should be obvious.

That might explain the 50 percent approval rating in Florida...

And I love how the Republicans talk about the eeeeevils of socialism. "They want every child to have an education and healtcare for all." Monsters. :)

But seriously, the Dem will have a fight because Trump is popular and--seriously, Florida is probably the most ****ed state in just how everything is run. But more Dems did vote than Repubs in the primary and he is tapping the progressives.
