TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Florida Rep. Anna Eskamani is going viral after a bizarre statement captured on camera during a protest at the Florida Capitol on Monday.
“You are erasing our trans babies!” Eskamani yelled out into the crowd of people who were protesting the so-called “Anti-Trans Bill.”
It remains unclear what exactly “trans babies” are and who is “erasing” them. Democrats, Republicans and members of the public alike are mystified at the meaning of Eskamani’s outburst.
The Florida Standard reached out to the Florida Democratic Party but was unable to get an explanation.
But privately, Democratic leaders fumed at Eskamani after the strange act.
“Anna is why we lose,” one top Democrat, speaking under the condition of anonymity, told The Florida Standard.
