Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me…
It’s going to take more than name-calling to upset Ron DeSantis. The Florida Governor recently acknowledged former President Donald Trump’s “Ron DeSanctimonious” nickname, admitting he kind of likes it.
“I don’t know how to spell the sanctimonious one. I don’t really know what it means, but I kinda like it, it’s long, it’s got a lot of vowels,” DeSantis told television host Piers Morgan in an interview. “We’ll go with that, that’s fine.”
“I mean, you can call me whatever you want, just as long as you also call me a winner because that’s what we’ve been able to do in Florida, is put a lot of points on the board and really take this state to the next level,” he added.
However, the former president has also workshopped other nicknames for DeSantis.
After rejecting “Meatball Ron,” Trump reportedly floated “Ron DisHonest,” “Ron DeEstablishment,” and “Tiny D,” but appeared to favor the original “DeSanctimonious” nickname.
“To me, it’s just background noise,” DeSantis said of Trump’s jabs. “It’s not important for me to be fighting with people on social media. It’s not accomplishing anything for the people I represent.”
Trump has taken aim at DeSantis in recent weeks as speculation continues to mount that the Florida Governor will soon announce his own 2024 campaign.
On Wednesday, Trump responded to DeSantis’ interview with Morgan on Truth Social.
“While I am fighting against Radical Left Lunatics, Persecutors, and unfair Prosecutors who want to destroy us all, Ron DeSanctimonious is not working for the people of Florida as he should be, he is too busy chatting with a Ratings Challenged TV Host from England, desperately trying to rescue his failing Campaign—But it’s my fault, I put him there!” he said.
Come on kids, get along. My mental health has is working overtime to figure out what the hell, u two grown men, are trying to accomplish, to each other,your supposed to be on the same side. We need u fighting the commie dumbocraps,not each other,any more nonsense, and I quit,won’t vote for either of u. Neither of ya, can afford losing independent votes,so shape up, or I’ll ship out.
DeSantis is not in to this stupidity DJT is though. He was asked about his thinking on Trumps stupid comment and his reply it was simply backgound noise. So “ship out” if you choose but get your facts straight. The governor has bigger fish to fry.
Gov. DeSantis is probably the best Republican (potential) candidate for President since Ronald Reagan! I have never understood the personality of Donald Trump, but I do believe that his propensity for name-calling is at the minimum simply silly, and certainly beneath any serious politician. I think this and other unbecoming behavior cost Mr. Trump a second term as President and saddled America with the most ineffective and irresponsible President, Joe Biden, in our history.
I believe that Gov. DeSantis has the skills, judgement, and personality to restore worldwide respect for the US Presidency and put an end to the rising tide of Socialism that has beset our great country.
About 8 years ago I posted that age old saying we said 60 years ago in our grade school the play ground and when I posted it in a comment I think a million or more snowflakes in there basement crawled out and gave it to me. I guess they are ok being beaten with sticks and stones. I guess they are to stupid to know the difference.
