FLASHBACK: Here's a Long List of Top Democrats Saying "Monkeying Around"

Yesterday a firestorm erupted when Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis said during an interview on Fox News, "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."

His Democrat opponent Andrew Gillum and his friends in the leftist media immediately pounced, saying the use of the term was a "racist bullhorn." 

DeSantis has fired back, saying his use of the term had nothing to do with race.

But despite their outrage, Democrats haven't had any trouble regularly using a similar term: "monkeying around." This includes Democrats working directly for President Barack Obama.

Rich Weinstein has compiled a long list:

Are these Democrats also using racist bullhorns? Or are they just politically opportunistic hypocrites?
