Donald Trump Is One Day Away From Leaving a Horse’s Head in Ron DeSantis’s Bed

Ron DeSantis has not yet announced he will run for president in 2024, but at least one person is extremely panicked at the prospect that he will, and that person is obviously donald trump We know Trump is freaking out about the possibility of having to beat out DeSantis for the Republican nomination based on his remarks about the Florida governor over the last several months, which have included but have not been limited to: claiming DeSantis would have never been elected without his endorsement; saying he “sent in the FBI” to ensure DeSantis beat Democrat Andrew Gillum; busting out the nickname Ron “DeSanctimonious,” telling reporters “If [Ron] did run, I will tell you things about him that won’t be very flattering”; and suggesting he’ll treat the governor to the ole ted cruz special, ie, insulting his wife and implying one of his relatives was involved in the murder of an American icon. By contrast, he’s apparently told Nikki Haley she should totally jump into the race.

For the most part, DeSantis has not responded to Trump’s comments, preferring instead to busy himself with banning at an AP African American studies course and waging a war on transgender people. But on Tuesday, he decided to take a moment to hit back. Asked about Trump’s most recent criticism, the governor told reporters: “I roll out of bed, I have people attacking me from all angles, it’s been happening for many, many years. The good thing is, is that the people are able to render a judgment on that, whether they reelect you or not. And I’m happy to say—you know, in my case—not only did we win reelection, we won with the highest percentage of the vote that any Republican governor candidate has [had] in the history of the state of Florida…That verdict has been rendered by the people of the state of Florida.”

While Trump would undoubtedly bristle at any criticism whatsoever from DeSantis, whom he apparently believes owes him his political career, we’re assuming the pointed reference to the fact that the ex-president lost the 2020 election—something he continues to refuse to admit— will not go over well. (In his only public remarks re: Trump since the midterms, DeSantis said, of the ex-president’s attacks: “One of the things I’ve learned in this job is when you’re leading, when you’re getting things done, you take incoming fire. That’s just the nature of it. We’ve focused on results and leadership, and at the end of the day, I would just tell people to go check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night.”)

Hours after DeSantis spoke to reporters Tuesday, Trump took to Truth Social to post an old clip of the governor saying he aspired to be like paul ryan, the former House Speaker the ex-president dubbed a “weak RINO” and “pathetic loser” last year.

If we know Trump, and unfortunately we think we do, this is merely a prelude to what he has in store for Ron.

Get ready for two straight years of this:
