Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a once-loyal member of Donald Trump's court, is refusing to bend a knee to the former president and says backing him in the 2024 election 'is too much to ask' after Trump publicly attacked his character. Trump allegedly branded popular governor as having 'no personal charisma' and a 'dull personality' as rumors swirl the ex-president is angry DeSantis hasn't declined to challenge him for the GOP presidential nomination. DeSantis, however, has told his inner circle that Trump's 'expectation that he bend the knee is asking too much,' the New York Times reported.

I’ll almost bet Niki Fried the democrat Secretary of Agriculture in Florida is behind this crap. She also started the rumors he was missing in action when he was with his wife during Breast Cancer treatments. We don’t know how she slipped in during the election maybe a new Soros angle other than DAs.

Sadly I do believe it. Trump was a Liberal for most of his life and has a nasty habit of mocking and deriding others. One only has to remember the primaries. Still I voted for him twice and will a third time.

I do not believe that any DeSantis insiders would talk to the New York Times. So, while there are elements of this story which are believable, it is built on a source which is not.

Unfortunately, Trump's comment had the familiar sound of "Low Energy Jeb," "Little Marco," "Lyin' Ted," "That Face" Carly,..". Anyone who feels secure about the nomination should not be belittling his potential rivals three years before the next election. Such comments also remind people of why they became exhausted by his nonstop derogatory tweets about politicians, athletes, talkshow hosts, actors, foreign leaders and even members of his own cabinet.

You know, you haven't done diddly in your life if you haven't been "attacked" at least once by Donald Trump. If you are on his side, you shrug it off and move forward If not, your Trump Derangement Syndrome escalates to a higher level. Ho hum.

The thing is, President Trump can say something caustic in a moment of annoyance that isn’t his real opinion. We all can. But in President Trump’s case, it’s picked up and reported and blown out of proportion. So…it’s possible that he said these things, but I don’t think they represent his true opinion of DeSantis, and I’m sure DeSantis knows it.

They're trying to stir up trouble, as is their wont. But it is TOO early. A lot can happen between now and 2024 and DeSantis is wise to wait and watch things play out until 2023. If he starts to campaign separately (unofficially), now THAT would be unwise. Both Trump and DeSantis are too wise toward the media to fall for their traps.

Someone is playing the "Divide and Concore" Card. They think if they can get Trump and DeSantis at each other's Throats there will be room for another more "progressive Republican" Slip in and win the nomination. I don't think that will happen. I think the plan all along has been for Trump to run and DeSantis to be his VP. Then in four years DeSantis will be ready to be President! I would bet they stick to that plan but it's too early for them to announce anything! We will see, but I'm betting that plan will be a winner in the end! If for some reason Trump decides not to run, DeSantis is ready to take his place as the Republican Nominee. He would be a great President!

Please consider the source before you put any validity to this pile of utter BS. The "Daily Mail" is a British rag sheet about 50 steps below "The National Enquirer" for journalistic integrity. In reality, Trump and DeSantis are great allies, and DeSantis will be Trump's greatest cheer leader and supporter if Trump decides to run again. If Trump decides not to run again, he will be massively supporting DeSantis.

I was a Trump voter twice and also a contributor, but he lost me, at least for the moment, when he screwed up the Ga. election because of his own ego, and we have faced the terrible consequences in the Senate. I agree that the 2020 election was beyond iffy BUT what we need now is to be sure FUTURE elections are fair and square, yet all I hear from Trump is how he was robbed. That ego again.....and I can't back him at this point. He is foolish to dump on DeSantis..,.,...the man may not be a ball of fire, but he is brave and NOT ego driven, in as much as any candidate can not be. I want to hear about what Trump can do (again) and NOT how every one else is left in his dust. And I am sure I am not alone in this.

I don't believe this Article, but I believe the following: Donald Trump was the best President since Ronald Reagan and John McCain turned out to be a petulant turncoat SOB, and as such, I believe he got out of his death bed in Arizona, traveled to D.C. to cast the dispositive vote that killed the repeal of Obamacare. Why? ONLY because Donald Trump said McCain was not Donald's idea of a hero. Therefore, I believe Donald Trump needs to be more circumspect regarding making (flippant and for no particular purpose) derogative comments about powerful politicians who are so thin skinned that they, like McCain, can (and sometimes will) get their petty revenge by sabotaging Donald's Presidential plans and policies, and thereby harm all of us.

The press, RINO advisers in Trump’s circle (unfortunately) and Dems constantly make things up or twist things and snitch just to cause friction for Trump. Our #45 is certainly not above talking privately roughly but I am not buying this. I watch Ronna and the other Bush globalists carefully. They may be acting accommodating about Trump in 2024 but I do not believe that is the case at all. I take these snarky, ALWAYS unverifiable and unnamed “quotes” as an effort to portray DeSantis as classy and heroic and Trump as vulgar and oafish. Let us remember how we have all seen this before..

John Durham has been a special prosecutor for almost a year and a half — not a long time, but plenty of time for a drumbeat to begin that he was showing little progress against his orders to examine the origins of the debunked Trump-Russia collusion narrative that convulsed a presidency.

Donald Trump Faces Possible Expulsion From SAG-AFTRA As Union's Board Sets Special Session. The former star of The Apprentice – and soon-to-be former president – has been a member of the union and its forerunners, SAG and AFTRA, since 1989. The two unions merged in 2012. Article XIV of the SAG-AFTRA Constitution states that members may be suspended or expelled for “engaging in actions antagonistic to the interests or integrity of the union.” Expulsion requires a two-thirds vote of the national board, but Tuesday’s meeting is just the the start of the process, which could take weeks to complete and includes a hearing on the charges against him.

Judge Royce Lamberth issued the order in response to litigation by the group that has dragged on for more than five years and seeks the public release of information from Clinton's tenure at the State Department. 'Any further discovery should focus on whether she used a private server to evade FOIA and, as a corollary to that, what she understood about State's records management obligations,' the judge wrote about the federal open records law.

Anthony Rodriguez, 26, says he was the only server working around midnight Jan. 30 at a George Webb location in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

Last November, the 18-year-old was found not guilty of first-degree intentional homicide and other charges, and walked out of court a free man. Speaking on Tucker Carlson on Fox News on Monday night, Rittenhouse said he wanted to hold major media and entertainment figures 'accountable'

President Biden will announce Tuesday a series of public and private-sector investments to extract minerals such as cobalt, lithium and graphite that are needed for electric vehicles and other aspects of the global shift toward a “clean energy economy,” the White House said. The administration expects demand for these minerals to spike 400-600% generally and demand for minerals used in electric vehicles to jump 6,000% over the next several decades.
