Democrats and the corporate-controlled press are terrified of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
But their obsession with attacking DeSantis has revealed one ugly truth about the media.
And a New York Times columnist said three words about Ron DeSantis that proves the left-wing press has lost touch with reality.
In their weekly conversation column where they discussed “Which ‘Radioactive Republicans’ are we betting on,” New York Times columnists Gail Collins and Bret Stephens took swipes at both Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.
Even though they both agreed that Republicans will gain seats in the upcoming Midterm elections, they two columnists for the Times disagreed over who would be the GOP nominee for President in 2024.
Right now, polls show that Donald Trump is the overwhelming favorite to win the nomination should he decide to seek a second term.
Polls also show Ron DeSantis would be the clear front-runner if Trump decides not to run again in 2024.
After Stephens said he believed DeSantis would be the 2024 GOP nominee, Collins said she disagrees and thinks Trump will run again.
However, they both lobbed nasty attacks against Ron DeSantis.
“If for some reason Trump doesn’t run again — which I can’t really imagine — DeSantis certainly has positioned himself to be next in line,” Collins said. “By being as loathsome as possible,” he continued, adding that “I find him completely appalling.”
Stephens then called DeSantis a “Trump backer” and criticized him for signing the Parental Rights in Education bill into law.
“I’m no fan of the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill,” Stephens began.
Stephens then admitted that DeSantis is wildly popular and should cruise to an easy re-election victory in November.
“Democrats underestimate DeSantis at their peril,” Stephens said. “Florida is hopping, Miami feels like the hottest destination in the country, and barring some scandal or mishandled crisis, DeSantis is going to crush his most likely Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist, in his race for re-election this fall,” he continued.
“DeSantis also has a genius for baiting liberals and the media, and he’s figured out a way to triangulate between the evangelical, business and Trumpian wings of the Republican Party,” Stephens added.
Like Donald Trump, one of the reasons Ron DeSantis is wildly popular is his willingness to stand up and take on the corporate-controlled media.
And the polls continue to show that their attacks only make DeSantis stronger and more popular with voters across the country.
