DeSantis Swipes At Trump, Suggests Former Prez To Blame For Mediocre Midterms

DeSantis Swipes At Trump, Suggests Former Prez To Blame For Mediocre Midterms

Ron DeSantis has responded to attacks from 45th President Donald Trump by telling people to “check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night,” adding that he is taking “incoming fire” because he is “leading.”

DeSantis was asked on Tuesday by a reporter as to his thoughts on the upcoming announcement from Trump, along with “some of the less than flattering comments” Trump had made about him, including labelling him as “Ron DeSanctimonious” at a rally in Pennsylvania earlier this month.

DeSantis made the remarks only hours before Trump officially announced his campaign for president in 2024 from his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida.

DeSantis refused to answer the question directly, instead pointing to the attacks he receives “particularly by corporate media” outlets, when he is “leading” and getting things done. “You take incoming fire. That’s just the nature of it,” he said. “I don’t think any governor got attacked more, particularly by corporate media, than me, over my four year term.”

He said that any such attacks on him were “just noise,” and that if you’re “delivering results for people” then “none of that stuff matters.”

“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. The fact of the matter is it was the greatest Republican victory in the history of the state of Florida.”

While DeSantis pointed to the Republican “victory” in Florida as evidence of his success, Trump previously highlighted that in the 2020 presidential elections, he received 1.1 million more votes as president thatn DeSantis did in his re-election campaign for governor.

The 45th President also noted that Republicans “from badly run States up North” are flocking to Florida, pushing the demographics further in the GOP advantage. He further argued that Rupert Murdoch controlled outlets, including Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Post have gone “all in” for DeSantis, comparing it to the “media assault” against him seen in 2015 and 2016.

Rather than blaming Trump for the failure to win the Senate in the midterm elections, like Virginia Lt. Governor Winsome Sears is doing, voters seem to be turning their ire towards Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, with a new poll showing 93% of voters do not view him favorably, his lowest ever result.

Senator Ted Cruz lambasted McConnell for losing what “should have been a fundamental landslide election,” citing his withdrawal of funding from Blake Masters in the crucial Arizona Senate race.

  1. I see no good coming out of these two bashing each other.
    Today is Thursday,November 17th,the 666th day
    of being held hostage by the worst Presidency

    blamestorming make him a “uniquely talented”
    threat to the national security,world economy,
    and democratic rule of law with equality of
    immunities,powers,privileges,and protections!

    Today is Thursday,
    November 17th,
    the 666th day
    of being hostages…
    to undemocratic Democrats.
    Democrats positions are based
    on unprincipled whims,
    not principled reasons❗🐦≠•
    @Potus @JoeBiden, the Liar-In-Chief,
    needs to be impeached and removed from office.

    The dems will push Desantis & Trump into fighting then they will go after the winner. Trump claims it’s all about the country, then prove it. Immediately pick Desantis as your VP. If Trump doesn’t, he’ll prove it’s all about his ego. Trump/Desantis for 4 yrs. then Desantis/Noem for 8 yrs. It will take that long to straighten this country out after Biden.

      Wasting DeSantis as vp would be a horrible waste. He would be much more effective elsewhere. Speaker, maybe?

      Trump won 2020 and everyone should do their best to fix that election as JOB #1. If not, and we survive until 2024 (very doubtful) Trump should be our ONLY consideration for POTUS.

      The globalists fear him!

    Stop it, guys. This will will only give advantage to the left. Stop acting like 1st graders and giving Dems what they want. We know you are both excellent leaders, tell us about that and quit dumping on the other guy. When do you see Dems scrapping like that? You don’t, and that is to their advantage.

  4. Jack says:

    If youre at all astute you will see this ‘confrontational’ narrative is MANUFACTURED S P I N created by MSM. There’s nothing to be combative about by far, (yet)….just wishful thinking and something to be ‘newsy’ about when there’s nothing else to report on. That is what the MSM is SO good at is spinning something from nothing.

  5. CountryBoy says:

    Yeah…. Trump was like 232-22 on his endorsements during the Mid Terms and raised $350 Million for the RNC….. McConnell had a LOT to do with losing the Senate since he REFUSED to fund close Senate races like Blake Masters and Oz….

    • David M Tharp says:

      McConnell has needed Putting Out to Pasture for Quite a While Now. He’s not even a halfway good follower; Much less a Leader. We Need him Out of the Picture Completely. I have long Thought Trump/DeSantis would be a Good Ticket. Failing them getting together on the Ticket; I don’t know that Trump won’t let the Dems Drive him like a Car & get him to neutralize himself with his Loud Mouth. He Needs DeSantis’ Vote Draw on the Ticket.
