Ron DeSantis thinks Trump is 'f***ing nuts' and has 'no business' running in 2024: Report | Daily Mail Online

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has reportedly told donors that he plans to hammer Trump over unfulfilled promises if the two wind up facing each other in a 2024 Republican primary. Those reportedly include attacks about Trump's border wall and for not having fired Dr. Anthony Fauci

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis privately called his former ally Donald Trump a 'moron' and 'f***ing nuts,' according to a Tuesday report detailing the popular Republican leader's recent rise to prominence.

DeSantis' narrow 2018 victory over ex-Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum was widely credited to Trump's support for his campaign - back when DeSantis was a member of the House Freedom Caucus.

Their close relationship fractured as DeSantis' star grew. For months neither has been seen directly mentioning the other amid rumors of a possible 2024 clash for the White House.

But DeSantis has savagely locked Trump in private, according to Vanity Fair. And while he's thus far demurred from presidential speculation, the Sunshine State governor reportedly told donors that he would face a Trump challenge 'head on.'

'He calls him a TV personality and a moron who has no business running for president,' a staffer told the outlet.

The report suggests his plan of attack would largely focus on showing Trump's broken promises and empty threats as just bluster.

An unnamed Republican source recalled him telling donors, '[T]he only way to beat Trump is to attack him head-on. He says he would turn to Trump during a debate and say, "Why didn't you fire Fauci? You said you would build the wall, but there is no wall. Why is that?"'

But even when he represented Florida in the House of Representatives, before Trump's unforeseen rise to the presidency, Vanity Fair's report claims he was mocking the then-president behind his back.

When Trump first ran for president, DeSantis 'made more fun of Donald Trump than anyone I know,' a former staffer reportedly said.

Trump meanwhile has reportedly branded DeSantis as 'disloyal' and a 'know-nothing,' while a previous report indicates Trump made fun of the Florida governor's weight

'He thought Trump was f***ing nuts,' another said.

In 2015, DeSantis and his staffers reportedly had a laugh at Trump's expense while watching old videos of him on Saturday Night Live.

Trump, who once adored the comedy show's attention, grew to revile it over its constant and cutting parodies of his political career.

A staffer recalled, '[W]e pulled up old SNL videos of Trump doing Domino's pizza commercials and stood around the computer making fun of Trump for 30 minutes.'

It came after Trump's appearance at a Republican Jewish Coalition where he told the audience, 'I'm a negotiator like you folks' - which was seen by his critics as an anti-Semitic trope.

'Ron came back to the office and said, "I can't believe Trump said that!"' the staffer recalled.

Neither Trump nor DeSantis have declared any concrete 2024 plans, and their silence over each other's public headlines is telling.

'Trump says he's overrated, disloyal, and a know-nothing,' someone referred to as a 'Trump friend' said.

The two had shared a close public relationship after Trump's endorsement helped DeSantis clinch the 2018 Florida gubernatorial election

An excerpt from Maggie Haberman's forthcoming book 'Confidence Man' published in The Atlantic over the weekend claimed Trump had called DeSantis 'fat,' 'whiny' and a 'phony.'

But the Tuesday report suggests DeSantis could struggle in an area where Trump is known to do well - charisma.

'I describe him as having the personality of a piece of paper,' said a former staffer of his.

An unnamed Republican reportedly said DeSantis was 'missing the sociability gene.'

One strategist apparently suggested that DeSantis lacked gratitude toward donors and other support.

'People host events where donors give him enormous sums of money, and he never says thank you,' they said.

Someone who worked for his current office in Tallahassee is quoted as saying, 'When you work for Ron, he makes you feel like you're just lucky to be there.'

Since the original perpetrator was unable to control his mouth or in this case fingers and decided to continue posting violations that would certainly have a detrimental effect and would earn him whatever punishment handed out. 

Thus comparing the comments/violations shows that the original perpetrator let his mouth overload his ass and accordingly he earned what he got. The other ''perpetrator'' (your language) was given three violations.

If you have any more questions regarding this incident I'm sure your curiosity can be satisfied or not.

A valid response.

Trump was a tv personality and a moron back in 2016 too, but that didnt stop DeSantis from praising him to high heaven for 4 or 5 years.

White Majoritarians feel they finally have champions who actually get it.

America was a great place to live in until the government put its thumb on the scale by removing immigration quotas back in the 1960s.

Wait,  doesn't sound right - "put its thumb on the scale by removing quotas?" 

I need to rework my talking points.

America was a great place to live in until the government put its thumb on the scale by removing immigration quotas back in the 1960s.

"The passage of the act marked a fundamental change in America’s immigration policy: 

(Ted) Kennedy declared:

“First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same…

Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset… Contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia…

In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think… The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.”




To be filed under trusting a progressive.

Before the 1965 act, the U.S. immigration system was governed by restrictive immigration laws from the 1920s—notably, the 1921
Emergency Quota Law and the National Origins Quota Act of 1924.1
 Both acts were a response to the shifting wave of immigrants from
mainly Northern European countries to Southern and Eastern Europe (e.g., Poland and Italy). The laws of the 1920s also sought to
decrease the number of immigrants entering the country after the foreign-born population in the nation reached 13.9 million in 1920—a
record high at the time.2
 The laws established country quotas that were based on the national origins of the U.S. foreign-born population
at a particular date in time according to Census figures. The 1924 act established an overall numeral limit of 150,000 immigrants per
year and set the annual quotas for 1924 through 1927 by national origin in proportion to the national origin makeup of the population as
of the 1890 U.S. Census. After 1927, the quotas would be set according to the 1920 Census.3
  These quotas were only set for European
countries—strongly favoring Western and Northern Europe over Eastern and Southern Europe— since immigration from Asia and some
other areas of the world were already restricted by several previous bans.4
 Immigration from the Western Hemisphere was not restricted
at the time and circular migration was popular among Mexican workers, particularly after the establishment of the Bracero program in
1942 (discussed later).

File under righting a bigoted law.

If Lee Harvey Oswald hadn't shot Kennedy none of the legislation LBJ pushed through would have ever passed.

(Is a thought that has occurred to me.)

EDIT: I don't fully understand the 60s. I technically grew up during them but I was just a child then. The mythology of the 60s I cultivated through in the 70s had more to do with Woodstock than politics. Weren't people more racist then than today? Have I got it backwards?

It seems unknown to many Americans is LBJ's staunch support of Mexicans when they were fighting for their rights long before he was President. 

That aside I grew up in the 40s and 50s near a ''sundown town'' in northern MN. the racism was overwhelming and sadly these many years later it is still there. Has there been forward movement, yes there has, but the past few years it seems much of that forward movement has began a backward movement.

I am aware of the fact that LBJ's liberal accomplishments and priorities precede him winding up in the White House. But I don't think he would have been able to pull along congress and the nation to pass the Civil RIghts Act if we had not been so traumatized by the assassination of JFK.
