Maybe it's something about being Florida governor. Rick Scott, being one of the undead, is apparently immune to it. Not Jeb! and not Disappointus.

DeSantis lost a friend in the legislature:

Of course, jumping ship from DeSantis to Trump because of Ron's antisemitism makes no fucking sense whatsoever.

I think it's one of those shark or drown conundrums.

Why not both?

I'd like to see somebody, ANYbody land a few punches on PAB in the primary. Even if it's Cthulu, or, worse, DeSantis. He steamrolled all the repos in 2016 and then came out looking well-supported against Clinton.

I'd be happy with anyone acknowledging reality. Trump is out of whatever fucking mind he had to begin with. He been saying insane shit in interviews, somehow even more insane than before like how he wasn't indicted and doesn't even know that word. Just once, I'd like a reporter or whoever to look him dead on and say "what the actual fuck are you talking about?"

Random fact: The New Hampshire-Canadian border is less than 60 miles long. Which is 60 miles longer than Florida's got. While looking up that detail, I also ran across an AP article that says Gov Sunono is increasing their own border patrols tenfold because of Hamas or whatever.

“What Donald Trump does now, he is wedded to the teleprompter."

Marshall McLuhan almost certainly did not intend this.

Obviously I know nothing of his work.

Trump never had a fast ball, a slow ball, a slider, a curve ball, or even a spitball, unless you count the time Stormy Daniels spit on his balls.

Observation: America's wrong wing party and all its MAGA seditionists have quite frankly abandoned civilization. They are itching to create murder and destruction on an industrial scale. To burn it all down as they say. A "sovereign citizen" is a self declared Outlaw, and deserves precisely the treatment afforded him under ancient law. (Look up "outlaw " on Wikipedia). Their dream is a Hobbesian nightmare. I want out.

Isn't Sununu one of the "nice" and "sane" and "respectable" and "moderate" Republicans? I have that on good authority from the punditocracy, anyway. Sorry, Chris, but if you campaign with DeSantis you are a fucking radical democracy hating anti-LGBTQ bigot fascist dickhole. Period.

Note, that list of horrible things could have gone on quite a bit longer, but I think this audience is well aware of all of the ways Desantis is awful.

Sununu is a fast talking used car salesman.

That's a great thing to yell at a DeSatan rally. During the dictatorship in Greece in the late 60s and early 70s, protesters against the junta protested American support of it by yelling the name of the American ambassador - Tasca. But repeated many times it came out as Scata -- Greek for shit.

The indignity of impugning the work of Anthony Fauci, one of the world's greatest immunologists and a hero of the fight against both AIDS and COVID - it's fucking disgusting.

"Elect me and I will eliminate the entire Federal government. Except the military. Except for the woke parts of the military, like all those generals who say we shouldn't kill all the foreigners and the fucking French. CDC? No CDC! I vow there will never be disease control in this country again!"

I truly do not understand why DeSantis is running. I know he is limited to two consecutive terms as governor, so will be out of office in January, 2027. You’d think he’d just wait until 2028. I would presume the field would be clear by then (if we still have elections). Nothing Trump would/could do will deter the MAGA cult from voting for him. Perhaps they’re counting on something to intervene. It is baffling.

He's practicing for '28.

It was the best indication that this guy lacks basic political smarts. He should know full well that the party is dominated by Trump--endorse him, wait until 2028 when he won't have to even pretend to govern Florida, and run then. Either way it's an open seat for Republicans.

Instead he's falling flat on his face now, making it less likely anyone will give him a chance in four years.

I was so horrified at the first Presidential debate to discuss penis size.

Won't someone think of the children?

Even NOW I'm shocked that DeSantis is doing as poorly as he is..He's a fucking monster, a bigot and a straight up sociopath. I REALLY thought he would be doing WAYYYY better than he is...What's not to 'like' if you like this sort of creep?

It's weird..I mean I'm GLAD he's doing so poorly, I just don't understand WHY he's doing so poorly...

His oral presentation skills suck. He is verbose, condescending, angry, and has an annoying sing song style of speaking. Even people inclined to his ideas hate listening to him.

It's not just what DeSantis says, it's how he says it.

He's an aggrieved whiner.

He's incapable of making a positive statement about himself that doesn't rely on an argument that someone else is terrible.

Isn't that the Republican party in a nutshell?

Sounds like Trump tho

This programming update is too little, too late for the ‘Ronbot 2000.’ The campaign for which will soon be a very expensive post-birth abortion.

This thing was supposed to be lightyears beyond the Romneybot 2000. I mean, it has bluetooth and everything.

DeSantis should drop out and publicly endorse RFK Jr's third party candidacy.

You want to take Trump right the fuck out? Do that and you'll be a legend.
