On April 28, 2021, an image went viral on Twitter that supposedly showed U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, showing a “Liberal Fantasy Island” sign that included different needs that were apparently being made by Democrats– such as the abolishment of lasagna:
This is not a real sign displayed by Ernst.
Ernst did display a “Liberal Fantasy Island” indication while making remarks on the Senate floor on April 28, 2021, however the genuine indication didnt feature products such as “Sex Blimps,” “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Abolish Lasagna,” or a call for just gay people to be permitted at dining establishments. Rather, the real sign featured products such as “Tax Increase,” “End the Filibuster Now,” “Defund the Police,” and “Abolish I.C.E.”
Heres a screenshot of Ernsts authentic “Liberal Fantasy Island” indication.
Ernst was among a handful of Republicans to deliver prebuttal remarks ahead of United States President Joe Bidens address to congress. Fox News reported:
Ernst, R-Iowa, and a minimum of five other Republicans will provide a series of speeches on the Senate flooring to object how Biden has actually managed his first 100 days and to implicate the Democrat of neglecting his inauguration guarantee of listening to looking for and opposing views to bring the country together.
” Frankly, the president just seems to be listening to the far-left progressives within the Democratic Party who live on their own liberal dream island,” Ernst states in her prebuttal speech in prepared remarks shared solely with Fox News.
Heres a video of Ernsts speech:
