At Saturday’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner, comedian Trevor Noah performed a set making fun of President Biden, CNN, Fox News, and others. At one point, he bizarrely pretended to see Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the crowd, making a series of jokes at his expense, prompting DeSantis to speak out about the false claims.

“One of my favorites, Ron DeSantis is here,” said Noah as he pointed off into the crowd as if he were looking right at the governor. “Oh man, I’m actually surprised that he found the time. You know, he has been so busy trying to outmaneuver Trump for 2024. I see you, Ron. I see you, player.”

On Monday, DeSantis revealed that Noah’s “surprise” to see him was completely false, because he was not present at the event.

“I would never attend that,” insisted DeSantis at a press conference. “I have no interest in that. I did not watch it, I don’t care what they do, but for them to advertise me when that invitation was rejected by my office, that is a lie.”

“And so here they are saying how important they are, that they’re somehow these paragons of truth, and yet there they are lying about something that is readily verifiable,” he continued. “And so the idea that I was there is false, the idea that I would’ve ever gone is false, and why they would try to perpetuate a lie about that I don’t know. But I think it just shows you why that cabal of people in DC, New York are so reviled by so many Americans. I think it’s a reputation that’s been well-deserved.”
