Why did Trump do that? I think we all admire Ron DeSantis because of the job he has been doing as governor of Florida. We all also know that Trump has a reason for everything that he does, even if it isn’t always obvious.
Here it is – it came in last night’s rally when President Trump is discussing the poll numbers for potential 2024 Republican Presidential candidates:
Why sanctimonious? First, because of the cringe inducing “God” ad about Ron.
The Paul Harvey takeoff on “So God Made a Farmer” is now “God Made a Fighter”. They even found an actor with a Harvey-like voice. The takeoff is obvious. Here it is:
But why slight Ron DeSantis at all? A guy who is doing a great job as governor of Florida and has always seemed to be a Trump supporter. As he should be, because it was Trump who pushed him over the finish line in Florida.
It might be because Ron D. is now aligning with the old cocktail party Republicans like McConnell and Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy as he positions himself for a potential Presidential run in 2024. I don’t know Ron’s motives, and I think he’s a great governor, but that’s why Trump did what he did. I think I DO know McConnell and Ryan’s motives, which is to prevent Trump from becoming President again, and to get rid of the MAGA movement just like they did to the Tea Party. It is obvious to others too. Big corporate types want business to go on as usual in D.C. The Swamp must be maintained.
As a reminder (to me and to you) is that Kevin McCarthy was Frank Luntz’s roomie in Washington, DC. Frank is his long-time pal.
