The DeSantis presidential campaign got off to quite the rocky start on Wednesday night as he  encountered major technical difficulties on Twitter during his planned presidential campaign announcement.

During the scheduled conversation between DeSantis and Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, technical issues such as crashes, feedback glitches, and audio failures occurred. Musk acknowledged the strain on the servers during the live audio stream on Twitter’s Spaces feature.

The conversation was delayed for at least 25 minutes after its intended 6 p.m. ET start time. Musk and David Sacks, an investor and ally of both individuals, initiated a new Twitter Spaces webcast after the initial one failed.

Capitalizing on DeSantis’s troubles, Joe Biden tweeted, “This link works,” with a link to donate to his campaign.

Earlier in the day, DeSantis had officially filed federal paperwork, officially entering the race for the Republican presidential nomination. His campaign had also released a video in which DeSantis stated, “I’m running for President to lead our great American comeback.”

  1. Hashem Yerachem!!! Someone who did not care about letting Covid spread throughout his state killing peopel jut because he wanted to be seen as the “freedom” governor must be NOWHERE NEAR the US Presidency!

  2. danny boy,

    Once again, Governor DeSantis ensured that a number of huge South Florida retirement communities with very large Jewish populations had first access to the Covid vaccine.

    Hashem Yerachem!!! Why does YWN have so many lying, woke-promoting kapos?!

  3. If President Donald Trump שליט”א at some point discontinues the race {& until such time there is an absolute חיוב of הכרת הטוב to support President Donald Trump שליט”א} then it is an absolute no brainier, that Vice President Mike Pence is getting unequivocal support, as he was an amazing Vice-President & is most fit for the Oval Office.

  4. Dan, if you’re stupid enough to believe the lockdowns worked, then you don’t even deserve to have a say in our elections.

  5. Dan:Not to worry….after today’s fiasco on Twitter, I don’t think he will get near the Oval office unless he can get Marco Rubio to get him tickets to the White House tours

  6. Gadol Hadofi,

    That isn’t accurate. DeSantis, before he turned anti-vaxxer, distributed vaccines though the Publix supermarket chain starting January 8, 2021. First come first served.

  7. @Dan The[?]
    A senile demented president who said: “If you get vaccinated, you won’t get COVID” …would only be befitting for some like yourself.

    For the rest of us who wish to live, succeed & prosper without medical tyranny, DeSantis woul be a better choice.

  8. IDIOT Biden!
    The reason why your link works is because NO ONE IS ON IT!
    unlike desantis who has 700k ppl trying to get in !!!!!!!!!!!
    What is up these warped logic ppl who have no common sense?????

  9. thanks for the info on DeSantis not providing enough support for his people in Florida…..this act alone is criminal…..politics is harsh enough and evil enough when one wants to get to the top…..how far will he go to be president…..

  10. שליט״א??
    147. You gotta be kiddn. Reserve the title for a deserving Yid.
    Besides that Trumps a narcissist egoistic maniacal person. He’s dangerous to everyone.
    Coming from a Trump supporter, Id love to see DeSantis. He’s a level headed, normal guy.
    DeSantis absolutely saved lives during Covid. You people are absolutely stating false numbers.
    May Hashem send us peace.

  11. modern,

    I have elderly relatives and friends in several huge South Florida retirement communities who were vaccinated through programs setup by Governor DeSantis in order to prioritize the most vulnerable citizens. This occurred during the time that NY was giving vaccine priority to prisoners.

  12. Ron DeSantis would be an outstanding president. An effective governor who stands by his principles. A Yalie and Harvardian. Also, a lieutenant commander in the Navy. A real mensch.

    Yes, Trump did some great things as president. Just don’t forget how he pays court to the anti-Semites in the Republican Party, including Marjorie Taylor-Greene. Don’t forget how he wined and dined two neo-Nazis at Mar-a-Lago. You’re willing to stake it all on such an unscrupulous man? Better to sit it out.
