DeSantis Swipes At Trump, Suggests Former Prez To Blame For Mediocre Midterms

DeSantis compared Trump to corporate media outlets, and said any attacks were “just noise.”

Ron DeSantis has responded to attacks from 45th President Donald Trump by telling people to “check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night,” adding that he is taking “incoming fire” because he is “leading.”

DeSantis was asked on Tuesday by a reporter as to his thoughts on the upcoming announcement from Trump, along with “some of the less than flattering comments” Trump had made about him, including labelling him as “Ron DeSanctimonious” at a rally in Pennsylvania earlier this month.

DeSantis made the remarks only hours before Trump officially announced his campaign for president in 2024 from his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida.

DeSantis refused to answer the question directly, instead pointing to the attacks he receives “particularly by corporate media” outlets, when he is “leading” and getting things done. “You take incoming fire. That’s just the nature of it,” he said. “I don’t think any governor got attacked more, particularly by corporate media, than me, over my four year term.”

He said that any such attacks on him were “just noise,” and that if you’re “delivering results for people” then “none of that stuff matters.”

“We’ve focused on results and leadership and at the end of the day, I would just tell people to go check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night. The fact of the matter is it was the greatest Republican victory in the history of the state of Florida.”

While DeSantis pointed to the Republican “victory” in Florida as evidence of his success, Trump previously highlighted that in the 2020 presidential elections, he received 1.1 million more votes as president thatn DeSantis did in his re-election campaign for governor.

The 45th President also noted that Republicans “from badly run States up North” are flocking to Florida, pushing the demographics further in the GOP advantage. He further argued that Rupert Murdoch controlled outlets, including Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Post have gone “all in” for DeSantis, comparing it to the “media assault” against him seen in 2015 and 2016.

Rather than blaming Trump for the failure to win the Senate in the midterm elections, like Virginia Lt. Governor Winsome Sears is doing, voters seem to be turning their ire towards Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, with a new poll showing 93% of voters do not view him favorably, his lowest ever result.

Senator Ted Cruz lambasted McConnell for losing what “should have been a fundamental landslide election,” citing his withdrawal of funding from Blake Masters in the crucial Arizona Senate race.

        Trump and Desantis should not be taking swiped at feach other. each should point out what they would do to improve the country instead of helping the domocrats use division of the party to their advantage. Both have valid solutions. I was already turned off when Trump started in on Desantis, now Desentis starts it as well. We need party unity and may the best man win.

    DeSantis is part of the Bush cartel & Ken Griffith a BIG hedge fund Globalist along with the Bush’s & “Never Trumpers” Deep State Globalists are funding his campaign to run for POTUS! Remember, DeSantis may be a decent Gov., but his stripes could easily change as POTUS to appease his money backers. Remember “One Hand Must Shake The Other Hand”…… Just say’n……

      You are totally right. De Santis is ‘playing the part’ I really believe he would be sucked into the ‘ deep state’ if POTUS.
      Ok trump can be mean spirited bla bla bla. But most of time he’s RIGHT! But more IMPORTANTLY he speaks from
      the heart and has the average Americans back! He’s not trying to accumulate more WEALTH like 90% of DC and he’s certainly not trying to win DC ‘friends’

      @Deplorable: Nice try snowflake. It’s obvious you do not live in Florida. I’m thinking you’re probably a Democrat plant trying to further divide the GOP. Nice try but we’re on to ya. It really pisses you off that DeSantis is the bright and shining star along with Kari Lake, Lee Zeldin and some of those young Conservative’s who will weed out the old relics like the Mc’s, Graham, Werkowski, Collins and put them out to pasture where they belong. We’re on to ya so begone troll.

        Hey Pappy, do you know me!? Pappy, just keep being a dumb, naive sheep that you are! I don’t recall in my post attacking Kari Lake, Lee Zeldin nor did I mention supporting Graham, Werkowski or Collins (who I don’t support & happen to think are RINO’s – democrats who ran on a republican ticket knowing that was the only way that they could possibly get elected), quite the contrary! So why would you throw that in your comment to me!? You sound pretty stupid to try to put words into my mouth, which is what DemonRATs usual do? So who is calling the kettle black!? You have no idea as to who I am, but you think you are such a genius that you might know me better than I know myself. GET A F’ING GRIP! I do have connections to FL & support many of the Republican candidates there including your boy DeSantis as “governor”! Not that it’s any of your business, but I did give a hefty donation to Kari Lake and many other MAGA’s including Matt Gaetz & DJT! So go back in your corner & sniff a little more glue, YOU DON’T KNOW ME!

    Wow, this is all bullsh*t HYPE to try to divide the GOP. Trump’s comment was mild and could have been a joke. Desantis response was pretty mild too and didn’t point to any animosity.

    DeSantis belongs in Florida.  I would never vote him into the White House, or for any political position outside of Florida. Remember the Peter Principle.  He has a lot of support in Florida, but in DC he could never do what Trump can and will do.  The best Governor does not make the best president.  Trump is the best President we’ve had and we need him now.

    I think Trump and Desantis should quit this bickering and let Trump run for president and Desantis take care of Fl. for the next 4 years then he can run for a 2-year position and then run for the big house but for now take care of Florida we need him here

    But that’s how Florida loses. DeSantis belong in Florida, not the White House. A VP doesn’t have the power to do for Florida what a governor has and DeSantis could never do for the country what Trump can, and did. Between now an 2024 we will see a dark side of DeSantis. He already responded to Trump. This diatribe wasn’t necessary.

    If Desantis runs for Pres, then Florida returns to democrat control. DeSantis is needed as a governor and he needs to be a beacon for other governors at this time. He can run for president later. However, all this news is bee Ess because NOTHING CHANGES IF THE VOTER FRAUD INST FIXED. Kari Lake’s election is a shining example of fraud, so is all of Arizona. In Texas, we have documented fraud in Dallas and Houston. In Michigan, there is over the top fraud. When are people going to wake up. If this Desantis/Trump rivalry isn’t theater, DeSantis needs to wake up and smell the coffee because why try ti get DeSantis out of Florida?

      alan, isn’t it amazing that since Oblowme came into office in 2008, states that were once deep “RED” states somehow started turning to purple & as recent deep “BLUE”, such as you mentioned MI & AZ, and also CO & PA. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!? We know damn well what is presently taking place in our country, the majority DO NOT WANT! We are now a Banana Republic & it’s due to both parties, mainly the DemonRATs, but also the RINO’s and most of the Republican party. I always said that when most decided to vote on “making history” & not wanting to be called a name – racist, starting in 2008 with the half black Muslim monkey who was a community activist, we became a ONE party system. That’s when everything started to go down hill & rapidly at that! DJT gave us a reprieve in 2016 for 4 years, and we were lucky with that, as the Deep State did not anticipate him beating their “history making” Killery Rotten Clit-ton! It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that there is a lot of corruption & cheating going on.

    The record that should be checked is the one Trump had for his entire Presidency despite a constant attack from the Media, the RINOS, and of course lying Democrats. He accomplished hundreds of great things for the citizens of this country, kept his promises, and worked 12 hour days to make it happen. If people cannot remember why Trump deserves a second term to finish his good policies, they do not care about our future. Trump will finish the wall and keep us safe.

    While arguably head and shoulders better than anyone else out there, Ron DeSantis can no more save America from brink of destruction than can Donald Trump – especially if America is already in God’s sights for judgment.

    “[T]hey measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” (2 Corinthians 10:12)

    How much better someone is than the rest of the pack is tragically the only measure Americans have been left with since the constitutional framers in Article 6 banned Christian tests and thereby mandatory biblical qualifications for civil leaders.

    America doesn’t need “better thans,” she needs biblically qualified men of God who will exclusively govern by His moral laws, like those King Jehoshaphat appointed as judges. That not even one constitutional framer contended for Yahweh, as did King Jehoshaphat, speaks volumes about the framers’ disregard for Him and His law system:

    “And he [King Jehoshaphat] set judges in the land throughout all the fenced cities of Judah, city by city, and said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for Yahweh, who is with you in the judgment…. And he charged them, saying, Thus shall ye do in the fear of Yahweh, faithfully, and with a perfect heart.” (2 Chronicles 19:5-9)

    The civil leaders the Apostle Paul depicts in Romans 13:1-7 are the same caliber of men as Jehoshaphat appointed – biblically qualified men of God who are a “continual” (Verse 6) blessing to the righteous and perpetual terror to the wicked (Verses 3 & 4), righteous and wicked as can only be determined by God.

    America is devoid of such men thanks to Article 6’s religious test ban.
