Latest Media Attack on Casey DeSantis: ‘Just How Thick Are This Lady’s Brows?’

Latest Media Attack on Casey DeSantis: ‘Just How Thick Are This Lady’s Brows?’

“I can’t think of many other conservative women known for their dark eyebrows”

As Legal Insurrection has extensively documented, the media/leftist attacks on Florida’s First Lady, Casey DeSantis, have escalated since Gov. Ron DeSantis declared his 2024 presidential candidacy in May.

There was the Washington Post‘s Lady Macbeth-ish portrayal of Mrs. DeSantis last month. Prior to that was a so-called Florida historian who claimed a “where woke goes to die” leather jacket Casey DeSantis wore to an Iowa campaign event was racist because it had an image of an alligator on it. The Daily Beast infamously referred to DeSantis as “Walmart Melania.” Then there was the Politico hit piece on Casey DeSantis that used Trump confidant Roger Stone as a source.

The latest media attack on Casey DeSantis revolves around . . . her eyebrows and the burning question of whether or not Mrs. DeSantis has gone over the top with them:

Slate staff writer Heather Schwedel was hot on the story:

Judging by how she’s dressed at several high-profile events in her husband’s political career, first lady of Florida Casey DeSantis’ desperation to win Jackie Kennedy comparisons is almost palpable. It’s only kind of worked—she did earn the nickname “Tacky Onassis” in some circles and has recently been dubbed “Walmart Melania”—but the intent is plain: She wants to be thought of as classy, prim, and put-together. So she would probably be absolutely appalled to find out that there’s currently a sizable amount of people online who are horrified by her eyebrows.


Just how thick are this lady’s brows? Have they been growing? Are Casey DeSantis’ eyebrows angling to seize new territory? Do they have … political ambitions? Is it possible they are bodily manifestations of her increasing influence over her husband’s presidential campaign? Should we treat them as prophets?


But she does favor a strong brow, and DeSantis might be an anomaly in this way—I can’t think of many other conservative women known for their dark eyebrows. There’s also probably a strong correlation between the lack of strong-eyebrowed women in the Republican party and the preponderance of blond women in conservative politics.

The supposedly original, unaltered photo appears to have first been posted by Gov. DeSantis hater Ron Filipkowski during a DeSantis campaign stop in Nevada in June:

Jon Cooper, who says in his Twitter bio that he is a former national finance chairman for the Draft Biden campaign, couldn’t resist weighing in:

Photos showing Mrs. DeSantis’ eyebrows as exaggerated are also circulating on Twitter:

Newsweek was able to confirm that some of the images that have been posted to social media claiming to show DeSantis’ eyebrows have indeed been altered:

However, questions have arisen as to whether the viral image is even real.

Newsweek can confirm that many of the images that have begun circulating of DeSantis have been edited to increase the size of her eyebrows.

Understandably, Slate got pilloried for turning a meme circulating among the Very Online Left into a story:

Nope, you sure couldn’t.

The Deep Fake State is hard at work with Photoshop trying to make an issue of Gov. DeSantis’ totally hot wife.

Now go compare their treatments of Mike Obama, Hillary and “Dr.” Jill. Those women are, in my very considered opinion, typical leftist beasts.

    I don’t see anything totally hot anywhere in view.

    With makeup, all women seem to be the same person.

      CommoChief in reply to rhhardin. | July 16, 2023 at 9:28 pm

      ‘…all women seem to be the same’. Many? Sure, the seemingly inevitable astrology conversation or reference is common from many modern women (feminists). In that sort of woman there seems to be a narrow range of views and topics. Thaey do come across as generic and interchangeable. Dealing with, much less dating, those women gets old fast.

      There are still traditional women out there who don’t parrot the latest internet hotness, lefty talking point or @# BS, nor do they hold men in contempt like the feminist/modern women do. They still appreciate traditional masculine men b/c they know we value them for who/what they truly are, their relative rarity and not some image manufactured in a lefty lab they are afraid to deviate from.

Walmart Melania is good. “Not as classy as Trump’s wife, perhaps does her own beauty treatments.”

It’s just good fun, not another occasion looking for an edge with outrage.

Try a fun counter play, is my suggestion. She hasn’t taken her clothes off for photographers could be worked up into something. Melania did some designing or other at the White House (Christmas? Rose Garden?) that could be mocked as European taste.

I’d go with Zsa Zsa comparisons myself. Famous for being famous, tiresome accent.

Let me try to decipher this, politically-speaking. I suspect that Democrat internal polling shows DeSantis gaining on Trump and that the polls released for domestic consumption (read: Dem propaganda) show Trump’s actual lead to be much narrower than the Dems want us to believe. So, the word has gone out to the hive mind: restart that attack on all things DeSantis.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Telemachus. | July 16, 2023 at 9:11 pm

    This sounds like wishful thinking to me. There is a reason that Dems are pushing DeSantis.

      Telemachus in reply to JohnSmith100. | July 17, 2023 at 9:45 am

      Which Dems are pushing DeSantis? Maybe you could name a couple, because there are always some outliers in every group, but the party, most certainly, is not.

    gonzotx in reply to Telemachus. | July 16, 2023 at 11:13 pm

    Donald Trump Dominates Turning Point Action’s GOP Primary Straw Poll at 87.5%’; Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at only 4.3%.

      Telemachus in reply to gonzotx. | July 17, 2023 at 9:47 am

      Oh please, a TPA straw poll?

      AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to gonzotx. | July 17, 2023 at 10:01 am

      As a 2X Trump voter, who will vote for him again if he is the nominee I want to express caution here.

      Just because Trump is at 87.5% in historically partisan polls (CPAC, TPUSA, etc.) does not equate to a sure win in the primaries or the general election.

      Using polling in an echo chamber is useless. The only polls worth considering are the individual state polls that show Trump winning enough Electors to win. Broad spectrum polls, “averaged” polls, and generic polls are incorrect. “Likely voter” polls decrease the MofE, but aren’t 100% accurate.

      As an independent voter, I will vote for whoever is the Republican nominee.

      Any nominee has to attract enough voters from the Republicans, Independents, and some Democrats to be able to cobble enough electoral votes.

      I see too many Republican partisans on this site alone who are still Never Trumpers, Always Trumpers, Never DeSanctimonious, Always DeSantis, and any combination in between. These people do not hesitate to insult the others who ostensibly should be on the same team – but aren’t.

      This is the reason the Republican Party could lose in 2024, not because the Democrats have a great candidate. At this point, Heels Up Harris is a shoe in because (unlike Democrats) Republicans will not join together in a united front.

        henrybowman in reply to AF_Chief_Master_Sgt. | July 17, 2023 at 1:17 pm

        After Trump’s foot-in-mouth today that he would give Ukraine more arms than they’ve ever seen, I suspect his polls among Republicans will tank. He sure pissed me off.

          AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to henrybowman. | July 18, 2023 at 9:45 am

          That, too, raised my ire.

          But when nearly every Republican candidate says they will continue to send money to Ukraine, it’s kinda hard to hold that against just Trump.

          This is going to turn out to be another weird election season.

    inspectorudy in reply to Telemachus. | July 17, 2023 at 6:48 pm

    Bingo! I think the Dems internal polling shows that Trump will be the easiest to beat and that
    RDS is unpredictable with many traditional groups. I just saw an interview with four lifelong Dem women who have school-aged children or grandchildren and they said that what RDS did in FL with the schools and groomers outweighs his stance on the 6-week abortion ban. They said they would vote for him over Trump. I suspect there are many more like that and Trump will not get any long-time dem’s votes.

The “media” is bound and determined to drive itself into total irrelevancy.

    AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to Rusty Bill. | July 17, 2023 at 10:03 am

    You have to admit though… they are the only game in town, and enough people follow them to be able to keep the Main Stream Media moniker.

Thick, wooly, eyebrows are very attractive on brunettes.

In the male world “wooly” Jennifer Connolly is … fondly remembered for riding a department store mechanical pony.

I try to distinguish between “attractive” and “beautiful”. One cannot assume the latter from the former. I suspect Casey DeSantis may be both.

BierceAmbrose | July 16, 2023 at 6:47 pm

“She wants to be thought of as classy, prim, and put-together.”

Iff never occurs to the contrived persona-wranglers that she might just look that way.

Given what she dows, one wonders how Dr. Jill want’s to be thought of. Or Hillary. Michelle Obama. Rachel Maddow. The occupants of The View. Nancy of Baltimore. Occasional Cortex…

    AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to BierceAmbrose. | July 17, 2023 at 10:06 am

    As a man married to Greek woman for more than 30 years, I have grown to like thick eyebrows.

    I would take Casey D over “Dr” Jill, or Michelle Obama. One looks like a couch, the other looks like she has a penis.

    But, to out a point on it, if the media has to insult the spouse of our presidential candidates, they are scraping the bottom of the barrel for “news.”

      BierceAmbrose in reply to AF_Chief_Master_Sgt. | July 17, 2023 at 9:23 pm

      “…they are scraping the bottom of the barrel for “news.”

      Someone they get away with insulting, must be worthy of insult. By extension the spouse who’s running also.

      This is mean kid, troop of primates stuff, but it plays. It’s part of why the one operation puts so much effort into sliming The Bad Orange Man. And why his playground insults were so effective.

The Gentle Grizzly | July 16, 2023 at 7:52 pm

My takeaway on this is a bunch of catty, bitchy females wrote nasty things about a woman with far more class and beauty than they have.

I confess to having made fun of Nancy Pelosi’s eyebrows. Casey is fine..

My view is that Casey DeSantis is a 7 out of 10 and maybe an 8 on a better day.

I have seen photos of the reporter. With a lot of work she might be a 5 out of a 10 but she has a 3 locked in and on a good days a 4.

It’s one thing for cartoonists to caricature famous people by emphasizing more obvious traits or features. It’s another thing entirely to photoshop a picture (or, as happens so often now, doctor a video), and and try to pass it off as reality.

Just more mean girls nonsense from the Left.

Not right but nothing compared to what Melania endured and continues to endure

If we are being “fair” here

Jackie had to deal with awful comments about her eyes being on the side of her head…

People always seem to Believe they have a right to tear down women physically , no matter who they are…

I remember Barbra Jordan, first Black Congresswoman from Texas, said she always had more oppression from being a woman that being black….

I was quite the looker in my youth, but I gained a lot of weight when I got pregnant and was put on bed rest. My metabolism completely crashed and my husband felt sorry for me and would bring Dairy Queen home each night lol. Never being overweight, I didn’t have a clue how hard it was going to be…
When I went back to work, working very hard to lose the weight, and I did lose 30 lbs in 2 1/2 months, but still had 30 more to go.

I had Drs come up to me and say the most hurtful things, I will never forget

Like one Dr held my arms and was looking in my eyes and said, “having a baby really take it’s toll, doesn’t it”

Or the best one, “I use to like watching you walk down the hall”, while shaking his head in sadness I presume…

So fellas, SHUT the F up!!!!

    JohnSmith100 in reply to gonzotx. | July 17, 2023 at 9:32 am

    Biologically it makes sense that having a baby triggers weight gain, Think about the need to feed the baby, to have reserves to continue feeding in difficult times, for example in winter.

    Men and women are meant to jerk each other’s chains.

    My wife had several friends over, they were complaining about men. One of the women had been vocal for some time about hating sex. Eventually her husband divorced her, and remarried. She was carrying on about her replacement being a whore.

    To jerk their chains, I stuck my head in and told them that Men always pay, in some cases it might be a whore, or a meal, and eventually a lifetime of support. I then made a hasty exit to my shop.

    CommoChief in reply to gonzotx. | July 17, 2023 at 9:41 am

    Americans, all of us on average, both women and men are getting fatter. The average for adults 20 and older from National Center for Health Statistics:

    Women 5’4 and 171 lbs
    Men 5’9 and 199 lbs

    Roughly 70% of Americans are obese. We all could use some more exercise and fewer calories. Those go hand in hand with more of the self discipline required to create the caloric deficit needed to lose weight. Don’t have to starve just have to burn off more calories than we consume. Do the opposite and we gain weight. Simple.

    Age plays a role with our metabolism slowing down as we gain ‘experience’ while some have other factors we can’t control. All of us definitely can choose what we eat a fat cheeseburger, fries and surgery water (Coke) v healthier non processed home cooked meals as well as how much or how little we decide to exercise. It’s true that some have a tougher row to hoe than others but all set our own priorities of what is important to us. The priorities get done b/c we make time and put in the effort required while the remainder fall by the wayside.

    AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to gonzotx. | July 17, 2023 at 10:12 am

    It’s not just, or predominately, the “fellas.” More humans with vaginas will say nasty things about baby makers than any man would.

    In fact, most men would f a woman no matter how much she weighed, what her political affiliation is, or whether she had a personality or not.

    So, go easy on us guys, especially when you vicious woman do more damage to yourself and each other than any man can do.

    To you your own comment, “So ladies, Shut the F up!!!!

If reporters are looking for thick eyebrows, Casey DeSantis has nothing on Gisele Fetterman in that department.

Laura Loomer called her “Jill DeSantis”, this is something I’ve never heard before.
That story is silly. Sounds like that high school clique of mean girls. Besides, i though we couldn’t body shame anyone for anything

    gonzotx in reply to diver64. | July 17, 2023 at 7:34 am

    I don’t really get it, mostly jealousy… as much as I detest hillary, the cankle comments, just out of spite

    Mechelle, “Mikey””. Trans etc

    Melania and her accent and 5inch heels

    But to be fair.. amen it’s all about weight for the most part

    Even Henry the 8th.couldn’t escape that, even with all the beheadings!

    I wonder what it is that we forget to look in the mirror

    Me included

    henrybowman in reply to diver64. | July 17, 2023 at 1:25 pm

    Well, we can’t.

      CommoChief in reply to henrybowman. | July 17, 2023 at 9:10 pm

      Meh stating the truth isn’t shaming. Shame is an emotion/feeling and no one can determine how you must feel or emote, only you can decide if you feel shame or any other emotion/feeling.

      Of course the leftists and the feminists want to equate words with violence and censor not only the public square but all conversation by making the words and phrases THEY pick to be taboo. Eff that and every Karen who starts up with that totalitarian crap.

You repeat every talking point and tweet issued by Trump campaigners and turn a blind eye to everything else.

Just not true but you go have fun

    The Defense rests.

Her husband should have advised her, both for his campaign and her own protection, to tone it down. I hope she does and that puts an end to it.

Politics are a modern Roman Coliseum.

    Hmmm, so much for empowering women. That said, Google the author of the article. She’s obviously bullying Ms DeSantis because she’ may be embarrassed of her own face.

Ah, Slate, the online magazine that regularly brings us such important articles to explain Why White Women Should Not Belly Dance, and Why Little White Girls should Not be permitted to dress up as Tiana or Moanna on Halloween, and to share with us the Freedom experienced by One Woman after a cycle of Free Bleeding. Such a paragon of culture! /s
