Curious about the guy I finally googled him and was shocked to learn about his bona fides.

Graduated from Yale, then Harvard law.

Enlisted in Navy, was a Seal.

Uh oh ... valid credentials to take a shot.

Seems like "Trump, but with courage and a functioning brain."

While I dislike his politics I gotta respect his background.

He wasn’t actually a trained seal.

He just looks and waddles like one.

That was funny.

Desantis was the legal advisor for Seal Team One, not a Seal.

He certainly has a more impressive background than Trump (not that that is saying much), but his policies would be disastrous. He is an ultra-social conservative.


In fact he is probably the worst kind of conservative, I do not see a single issue that I agree with him on:

Donny’s thoughts on DeSantis, from Maggie Haberman’s book:

Quote:
I heard that Trump was describing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in similar terms, calling him “fat,” “phony,” and “whiny,” while claiming credit for making his candidacy in 2018.


lmao… pretty sure I have also used those three adjectives to describe Big Tits on this board!!

People overlook the whiny-ness. Most non-Florida-based Americans have probably only seen pictures of him and haven’t even heard him speak yet. He just does not have a presidential voice.

And like I have always said, Donny will absolutely destroy him if they compete against each other. Just like Jeb!, Lyin’ Ted, and Little Marco.

DeSantis is already copying Trump's style and mannerisms.

It won't make any difference. The party has decided to install Hillary as next president in 2024. Biden will choose not to run, so he and Dr. Biden, can dedicate the rest of their lives to fighting climate change.

Possibly promised a Nobel Prize as part of the deal.

The party will reward Newsom for his patience, and install him in 2032.
