People forget that back in 2018, Ron DeSantis was losing a race for Florida Governor that he should have been easily winning. And he was losing to a guy with a sleazy and questionable reputation. But did you know, he almost didn’t even make it INTO the race to begin with? DeSantis was such a bad candidiate, that he was about to lose the Florida primary race, and was so desperate for President Trump’s help, that he “cried” in front him.
During a recent interview, former President Trump alleged that Governor DeSantis of Florida requested his endorsement while crying during the state’s 2018 primary election for governor.
Trump also criticized other possible presidential candidates for 2024, including former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Governor Glenn Youngkin of Virginia. This latest attack was made during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday.
“Ron DeSantis got elected because of me. You remember he had nothing,” Trump said. “He was dead. He was leaving the race. He came over and he begged me, begged me for an endorsement. He was getting ready to drop out. I gave him an endorsement, and as soon as I gave that endorsement, in fact, I said you’re going to have a hard time.”
“He said if you endorse me, I’ll win. And there were tears coming down from his eyes,” he claimed. “He said if you endorse me, I’ll win. I said, ‘You know what, Ron was one of 150 people that was on television.’ I mean, Jim Jordan was the best, and others were great. But he was one of 150, Hugh, that was on television, and he was supporting me on the impeachment hoax number one, and a little bit on the impeachment hoax number two. And I said I don’t know Adam Putnam, so we’ll do it.”
Trump has labeled Governor DeSantis as “disloyal” for considering a run for the presidency in 2024.
Investigative reporter Laura Loomer said this:
Later, President Tump would have to drag DeSantis across the finish line in a ridiculously tight race with a bisexual crack addict.
And how does DeSantis pay him back?
By secretly participating in an establishment/NeverTrump plot to take out President Trump and destroy MAGA.
Gee, what a wonderful, loyal, and trustworthy guy Ron is, right?
Give me a break.
But don’t be shocked. DeSantis has always been an “establishment” guy. Paul Ryan and the Bush family have been his heroes and friends all along, and nothing will change that.
People like Ron don’t suddenly and sincerely change.
They adapt to situations and “reinvent” themselves to suit the current political flow.
There is nothing honest or sincere about it.
