Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis delivered some recent remarks about the upcoming debate he’s having with California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom that were bursting at the seams with total boss energy. This is an absolute emasculation of pretty boy Newsom and flies in the face of individuals who claim that the popular conservative leader doesn’t have high enough energy to be president. In reality, what this comment means is that DeSantis isn’t a three-ring circus, a bringer of chaos, like some folks in modern politics, thus, he doesn’t entertain them.
I didn’t know that was a stipulation for being the commander-in-chief. Please, tell me, where is that listed in the Constitution? I don’t want to be entertained. I want someone in office who will take the duty to uphold the law and defend our rights seriously. And who isn’t darn near a century old and still has the vast majority of his or her mental faculties.
“DeSantis made the remarks during an interview with Newsmax while discussing a recent poll that showed former President Donald Trump blowing out President Joe Biden in a hypothetical rematch in 2024,” the Daily Wire reported.
“Just understand, the media, if [Trump] ends up being the nominee, they will not be putting polls out like that,” DeSantis went on to say during the interview. “It’ll be the opposite. I mean, they use this to juice a narrative. I think people were showing that that poll had Trump beating Biden with under 35 by 20 points. No Republican has ever won that. So when you see that, you wonder, okay, what are they trying to do?”
“I think they’re trying to do two things. I think the corporate press does want Trump to be the nominee. I think you see that in the coverage, I think you see it how they attack me,” he added. “But I also think they’re trying to get the Democrats to dislodge Biden. They want to show that Biden is weak, and they would like to see a Newsom or somebody else. So I think when the corporate press is doing this, I think people should take it with a grain of salt.”
Later in the interview, DeSantis was asked if he believed Democrats were going to pick someone else to be their party’s nominee in the 2024 presidential race, like, well, his debate opponent for example.
“Well, that’s why he said he would debate me, so I said, let’s do it,” the Florida Republican said. “I think it’s an important debate for the country. Not like saying who’s better, Florida or California, because that debate is over because people have voted with their feet. They’ve left California and come to Florida, not the other way around. He has lost massive amounts of population. No governor in California history has ever witnessed population loss at all on net.”
“The future for the country, for what the left would want to do, is just double down on the California policies,” he then stated. “And so, I think it’s going to be an important debate. I think, I mean, I think he’s definitely angling for it. I think Biden, I don’t think Biden is going to step down willingly. I think it’s harder to dislodge somebody who’s an incumbent president than people assume it would be. But I think the Democrat establishment really, really is concerned, particularly if they have to run against somebody like me. I think that their view on Trump is that he will help energize their base to come out in ways that maybe some other Republicans won’t.”
Continuing his expression of well controlled boss energy, DeSantis took an opportunity to pepper Joe Biden with a few verbal punches, saying it’s “really embarrassing” to see our current commander-in-chief “floundering on the world stage.”

Yes. It most certainly is.
Which is why we need somebody, anybody, who has a legitimate shot at winning against Biden to be our nominee. At this current time, that looks to be either Trump or DeSantis. Both are good choices and have established records of actually fulfilling their promises and fighting back against liberal insanity. The number one goal is getting a real conservative in the Oval Office. Both men fit this criteria.
