DeSantis for President

It’s finally come to pass—DeSantis announced his presidential run. There was a lot of interest in the announcement, so much that the Twitter Space he appeared on crashed.

We all tuned in, but the announcement was somewhat diluted by THE disruption and when Elon Musk and company finally got it to work, DeSantis delivered a canned addressed (the right thing to do to make sure his points were made) and then was offered up several softball questions by the hosts and some of his supporters.

DeSantis crushed the answers to the questions on issues he knows too well—DEI, CRT, immigration, etc.

One critique is that DeSantis could have gone further on the issue of illegal immigration. He touched on and almost repeated what he told me when I asked him about dealing with Mexican drug cartels a couple weeks back in Miami, which wasn’t much.

Overall, DeSantis did very well. Now, will his play give him enough of a bump to show voter he is a legitimate challenger to former President Trump, who right now is crushing the polls?

Polls will tighten, and both men will get theirs. Trump needs to be presidential, act it, because if he doesn’t, DeSantis will slide in and take his supporters.

DeSantis just needs to be himself and more engaging. His biggest problem is that he comes off as dismissive of people.

That’s just his personality, he’s not a prick as many people think he is. We all have our quirks.

Team DeSantis Speaks

John Cardillo-I mean, when Alex Bruesewitz, Roger Stone, and Laura Loomer are your comms team, it stands to reason your rapid response is a joke of a dud.

Christina Pushaw  -Let's go.

Lisa Boothe -Here is where I am right now:

I like Trump, personally. My biggest worry is that he can't get everything that needs to get done in four years. He lacks discipline, which makes it more challenging. Trump would start as a lame-duck president, which makes it even harder. Winning in 2028 is much more difficult without an incumbent. He did many good things, but unfortunately, Biden was able to undo much of it.

I like DeSantis, personally. I've gotten to know him and Casey while living in Florida. He is an incredible governor, and I moved here because he kept Florida open. DeSantis would be a very effective president, including enacting long-lasting change. I also believe he would be impactful legislatively because he's disciplined. I like the fact he has a young family too. Can he get the presidency? I don’t know. That’s up to him, his team, and most importantly, Republican voters.

At the end of all of this, I will enthusiastically support the Republican nominee. We have too much at stake.

Dave Rubin-Our collective headache is being alleviated right now. @GovRonDeSantis is excelling laying out his vision and mission.

Imagine how different this would be with Trump insults or Biden stammering. The Great American Comeback.

Generra Peck-Just got off the phone with @elonmusk

+ @DavidSacks -- heard behind the scenes details from Twitter as they handled the nearly 1 million people trying to get into the Spaces room.

They had more than 700k in the room to start with hundreds of thousands trying to get in...had to relocate the room....

Jenna Ellis -What I find so absurd about the criticism that the twitter space took a couple of minutes to get online due to popular demand is that the same people complaining are the ones who accuse DeSantis of being too stiff and inauthentic.

Almost like they’ll just complain no matter what
