Trump knocks DeSantis as ‘rino globalist’

Original Article

Posted By: Solid_Oak, 2/1/2023 12:43:16 PM

Former President Trump accused Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) of being a “RINO GLOBALIST” on Wednesday, continuing his attacks on the potential 2024 contender widely viewed as his biggest competition for the Republican nomination. “The real Ron is a RINO GLOBALIST, who closed quickly down Florida and even its beaches,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social. “Loved the Vaccines and wasted big money on ‘testing.’ How quickly people forget!”


If Trump thinks this crap is going to work, he is delusional !! Nobody, except maybe some "Trump or Nobody" supporters believe this. From a political standpoint, Trump is coming across like an out of control bully. If Trump gets the nomination, he will lose in the general election - too many women and Independents can't stand his habit of bullying, making personal attacks, and placing himself above all else.

What's he talking about? Florida was the only state to keep schools open and not mandate mask wearing. Gov Ron did an outstanding job during Covid.

Trump needs to stop this. He is going to lose votes, mine included if he does not. By the way Donald, I seems to remember you touting that you were responsible for the vaccines being created in record time. You will obviously take credit for anything that you think makes you look good and forget that you were involved when it turns out not to be such a great thing.

Trump throwing stones from his glass tower... smh Recall how Trump initially pushed the 'vaccine', by fast-tracking the rollout and granting a liability shield. And didn't DeSantis begin opposing the shots before Trump did? I wish the former President would be less indiscriminate with his campaign's preemptive attacks, lest they make adversaries out of people who are / were allies.

Once upon a time, OP was the center of the things, posting positively about Romney and Bush. And tried to stop the Trump movement along with her other names and aliases. So it begins. Once upon a time OP dismissed anything posted from the Hill. But times change. One does not go to Harvard and Yale and not expect to be part of the elitist globalist set that is having its way destroying national identities and Judeo Christian values long identified with America. That new world order ushered in by the heavily compromised money laundering Bush family and the Cheneys. DeSantis presents himself as the Trump alternative and on this board, we see the never Trumpers spring to his defense. The never Trumpers reasons for disliking DJT can be summarized: He and his supporters aren't our kind dear. (2) Big government feeds the politicians, lobbyists, consultants and other grifters in our family and special political subdivision and needs to be protected at all costs, the consent of the governed be dxxmned, so Trump must be stopped. (3) America needs to move away from God and Country to a secular feudalism run by progressives and elites and other Luciferians and Trump and Rush and Palin and others are in the way. Today DeSantis is their vehicle to get back in the drivers seat. Tomorrow it will be someone else. They just want to be back in charge and Trump and Trumps party won't allow that. New names, old story.

Wow, bunch of never Trumpers this morning. I like DiSantis and was excited by his bravery during the supposed pandemic. He is doing good things in Florida. But I have a sense of unease at how easy it's been for him to do just what he wants without the feds coming down on him, as they have in all other states. He seems like the real deal and his wife and children are a tremendous asset. But I want Trump to get another term. My dream ticket is Trump/DeSantis.

In an interview DeSantis mentions Paul Ryan with deferential reverence. There is a video of DeSantis speaking and standing right behind him in complete doofus mode clapping like a trained seal and smiling like an over medicated lobotomy patient is none other than Low Energy Jeb. If a picture us worth a thousand words, this clip will tell you all you need to know. I'm thinkin Trump and DeSantis are working together to gut the swamp. At least that is my hope!

Relative to RINO globalists, which one was a registered New York democrat in 2009, switching to the GOP after Obama was inaugurated? On another note, the "Never Trumper" epithet might have been valid before Trump was elected and served four years in the White House. In 2023, it is hurled along with the stench of desperation.

If anyone from Trump's reads this website and the replies, he needs to stop trashing DeSantis. He is losing our respect. The governor is doing a great job and we don't want to take sides. This is the time to be a united front and work out any issues in private. Frankly, I would like to see our governor stay the full four years ,then joining Trump in President Trump's cabinet for the two years before the 2028 election and then run for President. But, nobody is asking me. lol

#11, “ . But I have a sense of unease at how easy it's been for him (DeSantis) to do just what he wants without the feds coming down on him, as they have in all other states.” Ditto. I’ve been very pleased with all that he has accomplished in Florida, but, as you say, he has faced very little criticism compared to others & Never Trumpers jumped on his bandwagon immediately. Makes one wonder what they know about him that others might not know for certain & would be the case on the federal level, if he were to become POTUS. So sad that the times have caused so much skepticism & lack of trust. “Trust but verify” was never more important- no matter whom or what.

I voted for Trump and I like DeSantis too. I’m tired of the bs name calling. Our country is in real danger as well as our liberties. We need an adult who can make changes that are necessary. I think Trump makes a fool out of himself at times, but if he wins the primary he has my vote and the same goes for DeSantis. The media likes to stir the pot and Trump hands them the spoon.

Trump hopes to be nominee in 2024 and has so declared. DeSantis hasn’t thrown his hat into the ring. Trump’s attacks against DeSantis are a waste of time, and worse, cast Trump into a negative, petty light. DeSantis is obviously not a RINO. Trump is extremely stupid to go after him on Covid. Trump didn’t shut down anything, nor did he open anything up. He did inflict Fauci on the country and wholeheartedly endorsed the “15 days to stop the spread,” which led to the ghastly shutdowns that lasted months. He condemned Georgia’s governor and DeSantis for opening up their states. It is also a fact that Trump lost to the senile, corrupt and nasty Biden while DeSantis won his election in a landslide. Trump should stick to going after the Democrats. Going after DeSantis is suicidal.

Look, I do not like to see or hear what I consider unproductive rhetoric. However, you can almost hear the glee and see the happy handwringing coming from the regular Never Trumpers. Now that is off putting to me because it just reinforces my hesitant support for DeSantis. Republicans have been sold down the river for decades by those in the Republican Party who believe they know best. My feelings for President Trump do not stem from a cult like fervor. It comes from a place of trust. Many of Americans just like me watched what he did and we liked the results. Did we all enjoy his rants? No, absolutely not, but in the grand scheme of things, words pale in the face of successful actions. While some want to focus on his personality, they have to admit that he was also gracious and kind. I guess what gives me pause about his detractors is that he is the only one that bears the brunt of their outrage. They can ignore any democrat who says the most outrageous and dangerous things and will jump on Trump anytime they feel he is being rude. At this point in this country, to form an opinion of any politician’s qualifications for President based solely on personality is laughable. If President Trump was a mediocre President it might be different but he was far from it. He, by all measure was the most effective President in modern history. His long record of accomplishments proves it. No leader is perfect but leaders who get good things done are rare. Trump may be gruff, rough around the edges but he is trustworthy and worked unceasingly for the American people. While we are in the fight of our lives, I am more inclined to give the guy with a proven track record my support. I do believe DeSantis is doing good things, but I have to admit that his supporters and donors give me pause. You guys who want to rag on Trump for his rhetoric, go right ahead. The one thing DeSantis cannot do is claim Presidential experience against ALL odds while being beholden to none. President Trump took more abuse from every direction than RD will likely ever experience. He’s still standing and is willing to fight the good fight even the nitpickers in his own party. If you guys want a proper speaking fella then your guy RD is your man and will most likely lose to the democrat machine, but if anyone can go toe to toe with those demonic bullies, it is PDJT. As it stands now, I stand with Trump and hope Ron DeSantis has the wisdom to get on board too. The base belongs to Trump and you know it. If you go to war with the army you have, I want Donald Trump to lead it. The man is a known entity with a smart mouth I’ll give you that but I know he won’t sell us out and will fight to the death to win. While I can say I hope DeSantis wouldn’t sell us out, that is a big unknown. Presidential politics is a far cry from running for Governor. Remind me again, who saved Ron DeSantis’s keister in his little endeavor as candidate for Govenor?

I believe all of us posting on Lucianne want to take back the presidency whether that person is Trump or DeSantis. Name calling a fellow Republican with a good record is not helping your cause. Neither is calling some pearl clutchers and telling them they are disloyal. It’s childish. One thing Trump needs to learn is not to believe in polls. If he keeps this up, and 95% of the polls show DeSantis is the favorite, maybe he will stop talking about them. As I’ve said before, talk about all the good you did as president and remind us how we dodged the Hillary bullet.

Agree with OP and #1. He needs to either become a better, more polished candidate, or he should stop being a candidate immediately. He will do far more harm with Independents and Suburban women if he continues his out-dated antics. He should have been more gracious by complimenting DeSantis for being a great governor, and one who opened up early but also took care to pay attention to the state's large senior population had what they needed to be safe.

Not only did I vote for Donald Trump twice, I've never missed an election since 1972 (first year I could vote) and I've NEVER VOTED FOR A DEMOCRAT since 1972! So when I say I prefer Ron DeSantis - mainly because he seems eminently qualified and very electable and we've got to stop the Socialists, er, Democrats in any/every way we can, I resent being called names, being pigeon-holed, being accused of not being a conservative. The reason this stuff is happening, on Lucianne.Com no less, is because of the divisiveness currently being exemplified by the man I voted for president twice. Lashing out at fellow (popular) Republican this far from the primaries and the general election of 2024 is counter-productive, wrong-headed and, frankly, stupid. Which is why I now prefer the younger Republican to carry our banner in 2024. And I deeply resent my Republican credentials being assailed just because I want us to have the best chance of success in 2024.

Pennsylvania Democrat U.S. Senate nominee John Fetterman’s “blue collar” image is being called into question after reports revealed he lived off of his parents’ money well into his mid-40s. Although Fetterman runs ads that purport him to be a “blue collar tough guy,” his parents reportedly financially supported him while he served as mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, for 13 years. Fetterman, who has acknowledged his “cushy” suburban childhood, has openly admitted to the financial contributions his parents gave him as an adult.

Has (sic) affirmative action hiring practices caused overall competence to plummet? The record appears to show exactly that. For no good reasons whatsoever, competence was allowed to die on the vine in order to give the less competent a leg up. Not equality but superiority rules the hiring, firing, and education of Americans. Worse, many of those who were affirmatively hired do not do as good a job as those whose excellence was obvious. You can see it in customer service, which for many businesses is abysmally incompetent. There is a resentful casualness in those who are hired to serve others that would not have been acceptable even two decades ago.

President Joe Biden's State of the Union address kicked off with a sudden smooch between first and second couple members and yet another bold fashion move by influential Sen. Kyrsten Sinema. The early fireworks opened up a speech that typically devolves into policy lists and platitudes as the night wears on Tuesday night's prime time event featured angry exchanges between Biden and House Republicans who booed him for claiming they want to 'sunset' Social Security and Medicare. Sinema made a bold entrance into the House chamber for the speech, after forcing Washington to hold its collective breath during talks on the Inflation Reduction Act, then later announcing she had switched from Democrat to independent.

In her Republican rebuttal to the State of the Union address Tuesday, newly elected Arkansas governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the Biden administration has been hijacked by the woke left, fostering an absurd political environment in which “the choice is between normal or crazy.” Sanders, who previously served as press secretary to former president Trump, began her speech by drawing a generational juxtaposition with Biden, noting that, at 40, she’s the youngest sitting governor, while Biden is the oldest ever sitting president. “I’m the first woman to lead my state. And he’s the first man to surrender his presidency to a woke mob that can’t even tell you what woman is,”
