The DeSantis Video Leak

The newly-released leaked video clippings of Gov. Ron DeSantis debate-prepping during the 2018 midterm gubernatorial cycle is nothing less than shameful, and all that is wrong with American politics.

But then again, it's politics, and all bets are off when you are an American candidate for public office.

Surely, everyone on DeSantis’s campaign knows who took that video and probably leaked it.

There are only so many people that could know, or have access to all the internal campaign video footage.

The leak comes just weeks, or possibly days before DeSantis is expected to announce his 2024 Republican presidential run against former President Donald Trump.

Of course, the leak has spurred on “OnlyTrumpers” or Trump loyalists to call DeSantis a disingenuous “career politician who will say anything to get elected.”

In the video, DeSantis does express concern about how to answer a question or questions so that his answer does not upset Trump’s “voters.”

“I have to frame it in a way that it's not going to piss off all of his voters,” said DeSantis.

On the other hand, DeSantis supporters are saying that the video depicts their candidate having the necessary fire in the belly to take on Trump, the media, and eventually the Democratic presidential nominee, whomever that could be if it’s not President Joe Biden. READ MORE

Rick Scott-The Castro/Díaz-Canel regime persecutes & oppresses the people of Cuba who took to the streets again, calling for democracy and freedom. #PatriaYVida

What else is going to take for Biden to finally hold them accountable & join our fight for a new day of freedom in Cuba? The time is NOW.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz-My heart goes out to the Allen, Texas community and those mourning lost loved ones. Sadly, a weapon of war again inflicts mass harm on us, and GOP leaders will meet it with inaction, despite nearly all Americans, incl. most Republicans, seeking change.

Kat Cammack-Happy #NationalNursesWeek! To all of America’s hardworking nurses, we thank you for your tireless efforts to provide our country’s patients with the care they need.

Maxwell Alejandro Frost-The right wing is more concerned about being in children’s pants than keeping people from being sprayed with bullets in their own damn communities. This that “freedom” they used to talk about?

Shevrin “Shev” Jones-My seat mate and brother, @senpizzo , probably giving me some suggestions and leading questions for my debate or questions on a bill.

I’m no attorney, but one session sitting next to Jason Pizzo is like whatever year one of law school is like.

Chip LaMarca-Another year gone because some want to protect one winery. This must stop if we’re the Free State of FL. #FreeTheGrape
