Fresh off a landslide win in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis has struck back against Donald Trump, who has attacked him publicly and repeatedly in recent days and weeks.

Asked by a reporter about Trump’s attacks on him, and the former president’s coming announcement of a 2024 run, DeSantis didn’t hold back.

“Well, you know, one of the things I’ve learned, like learn in this job is when you’re do, when you’re leading, when you’re getting, getting things done, yeah, you take incoming fire. That’s just the nature of it. I roll out of bed in the morning. I’ve got corporate media outlets that have a spasm. Just the fact that I’m getting up in the morning. And it’s constantly attacking and this is just what’s happened,” DeSantis said.

“I don’t think any governor got attacked more, particularly by corporate media, than me over my four-year term. And yet I think what you, what you learn is all that’s just noise. And really what matters is, are you leading? Are you getting in front of issues? Are you delivering results for people and are you standing up for folks? And if you do that, then none of that stuff matters. And that’s what we’ve done. We focused on results and leadership. And, you know, at the end of the day, I would just tell people to go check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night. And the fact of the matter is… You know, the fact of the matter is, we, it was the the greatest Republican victory in the history of the state of Florida.”

  1. De Santis would be wise to go back to the Reagan rule (never speak ill of a fellow Republican), and let the numbers speak for themselves. To win the election he needs to have Trump’s supporters voting for him, and insulting Trump won’t help him win them over. Trump will look at the numbers, realize he can’t win, and at that point it will be easier for De Santis (or any other Republican) to recruit Trump to be the venerated “grand old man” of the party rather than the candidate.

  2. After DeSantis becomes president, Trump is going to need a pardon from him to avoid spending the rest of his life in jail. The insults are not going to help his cause at all.

  3. Lakewhut, on the contrary, Trump would never have been president without Desantis and a whole lot of other people whom he has now dumped on.

    Shlomo, he is not going to need a pardon because he hasn’t committed any federal offense, and no prosecutor is going to be able to convince an honest jury beyond reasonable doubt that he has. Dishonest juries can be taken care of by appeals courts. And a president can’t pardon state offenses.
