We tasked an AI generator to create a Ron DeSantis that doesn't suck

While the state of Florida is currently bombarded with real life issues like rising sea levels, aging infrastructure, an exploding affordable housing crisis, and a property insurance industry on the brink of total collapse, Gov. Ron DeSantis has instead spent his time standing in front of uniformed cops at daily pressers and yelling about whatever he thinks is "woke."

So, in an effort to see what a parallel universe might look like, we asked the AI generator DALL-E to show us a glimpse of a somewhat normal, non-shitty DeSantis doing somewhat normal, non-shitty things. As you can see it nearly broke the damn thing.

Unfortunately, the results are terrifying. It's as if the mere suggestion that Ron DeSantis is capable of addressing climate change, attending a Pride parade, or even reading a newspaper, was just too difficult for this poor AI generator.

We apologize in advance.
