Florida Governor Ron DeSantis trails Donald Trump in the polls and is running out of time to turn things around.
DeSantis launched an all-out media blitz as the key to a comeback effort.
But then Ron DeSantis went on MSNBC and made one jaw-dropping comment about Donald Trump.
MSNBC is a radical left-wing network where the audience expects guests and hosts to denounce Donald Trump and his supporters as criminal Nazis posing an existential threat to democracy in America and to feed them plenty of Democrat Party comfort food.
DeSantis knew all this when he appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program.
Yet DeSantis took the bait when co-host Willie Geist asked DeSantis about how he could say he would support the GOP nominee for president.
“Do you really believe that a man who’s convicted of say, attempting to overturn the 2020 election or taking nuclear secrets back to his beach club, do you actually still, as we sit here today, believe that person should be president?” Geist asked DeSantis.
Without missing a beat, DeSantis responded that a convicted felon could never win the election and that the GOP would take the nomination away from Trump under that scenario.
“Now, do I think somebody under those circumstances could get elected president? The answer is no. That will not happen,” DeSantis declared, telling Geist that a conviction would be “fatal in a general election.”
DeSantis – who made his name combatting the phony, pro-Democrat narratives pushed by the press – never questioned the premise of Geist’s question or blasted the criminal charges against Trump as a political sham.
DeSantis – whose answer assumed Trump’s guilt – didn’t point out that these criminal cases are the result of Democrat prosecutors bending the law using novel legal theories to bring bogus charges against Trump in Democrat jurisdictions where Democrat judges and all-Democrat juries can rig the outcome against Trump and create the very scenario Geist brought up.
The Florida governor then apologized for signing a pledge to support the nominee saying it was just a political formality he undertook to make sure he could appear in the GOP presidential debates and reiterated that the party shouldn’t nominate Trump.
“I don’t think the party should nominate in that situation. However, you know, I signed the pledge. I’m a Republican. I don’t think it’s going to come to that, and I think we’ll be, we’ll get the job done like we need to, but the reality is, is I signed it and that’s what I did,” DeSantis told Geist.
Conservatives were aghast at DeSantis’s answer and couldn’t believe that DeSantis wouldn’t seize the low-hanging fruit and use the question to make a larger point about Joe Biden weaponizing the government against conservatives.
I watched the entire interview. Whoever arranged this and prepped him should be fired.
Completely backtracks on nearly everything including Ukraine. And this takes groveling to a new level while again missing a chance to go after the “weaponized” government he promised to end. https://t.co/taSNE90Whj

“We don’t do show trials in the US. I’m confident Trump will prevail.”
“We don’t let the Department of Justice, which is controlled by Trump’s chief rival, choose who the candidate will be.”
How is this hard? https://t.co/FNdcoVAmsL
