DeSantis Digs Himself a Deeper Hole

He is making Trump look good

So rumor has it that the Dark Lord, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, after stringing everyone along for almost as long as Trump did before he announced, will finally announce his candidacy for president.


First on Wednesday, May 24 by filing the necessary paperwork with the Federal Election Commission and then on June 1 with a big kickoff event in his hometown of Dunedin, Florida.

Why he needs to do this twice is beyond me. Ronnie, just file the damn paperwork and announce that you are running. Stop prolonging the agony … for yourself.

The rest of us don’t care at this point. We are sick of waiting and tired of watching you dig a deeper and deeper hole in which to bury your hopes and dreams.

You are so not ready for primetime that it is almost sad. Definitely pathetic. It’s gotten to the point that people would rather vote for Trump than vote for you, instead of the other way around.

That’s actually a good measure of your failure. You are such a bad candidate that you make Trump look good. The latest polls say that if a primary election were held today, Trump would win with 50% of the vote and you would come in a distant second at 36% of the vote.

Everybody else is polling in the single digits, none higher than 4%.

And yet, you go around saying insanely stupid stuff like there are only three viable candidates in the race for president, you, Trump and Biden, and only two of those have a chance of winning the presidency, you and Biden.

“You have basically three people at this point that are credible in this whole thing. Biden, Trump and me. And I think of those three, two have a chance to get elected president — Biden and me, based on all the data in the swing states, which is not great for the former president and probably insurmountable because people aren’t going to change their view of him.”

Insurmountable because people aren’t going to change their view of him? Is that why Trump’s popularity increased after he lost the E. Jean Carroll case and was fined $5 million dollars?
