DeSantis’ disastrous presidential statement shows he’s not a serious Trump contender — RT World News

On Wednesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced his candidacy for the 2024 US presidency, drawing immediate criticism from the left, right and center.Anti-Awakening Warrior’s Twitter space announcementwhich is rightly considered an absolute dud, Has been described by major publications as a “collapse,” “Awkward,” and a “A fiasco.”

The main question most people give as to why this event is so bad is that it happened on Twitter Spaces, which are often down. In fact, if you go back and listen to the recording, it has so many mistakes that you often don’t even hear the governor speak. Therefore, it is impossible to reliably share announcements, which is obviously important for conveying one’s message. To be fair, DeSantis did share a video on his campaign page as well — but it didn’t go viral to any degree because it wasn’t touted as an official announcement.

The official event on Twitter was riddled with technical issues, and the hashtag #failuretolaunch was circulated on the site. People keep hearing frantic mic feedback, and the entire space is intermittently interrupted.Elon Musk, who hosts the space, said it was a “good sign,” But most smart people would agree that it shows a very high level of incompetence on the part of the DeSantis campaign and Twitter. Eventually, after about 24 minutes of non-stop outages, the space was transferred to the account of superdonor David Sacks.

Trump's top Republican opponent formally enters 2024 race

As far as the announcement itself goes, a few things stand out. First, the governor has been on the script, mostly because no one actually showed up at the virtual event. Mostly a group of his most ardent supporters, no one asked substantive or hard questions. He was pitched softball, which prevented him from displaying any intelligence he might have. For example, he was asked about cryptocurrencies, but he wasn’t asked about the elephant in the room — why should anyone vote for him instead of Donald Trump?

The announcement was so bad that the Trump campaign immediately turned it into a meme. they posted a video DeSantis poked fun at Musk and DeSantis in one fell swoop by depicting a rocket bearing the logo of Ron DeSantis’s campaign — an eerily similar one to that of failed Republican presidential nominee Jeb Bush — exploding during takeoff.team also posted a video Making fun of the announcement itself on Instagram, the apparent AI/voiceover of DeSantis and Musk shares space with the likes of George Soros, Klaus Schwab, Dick Cheney, The Devil, Adolf Hitler and the FBI.

As someone who absolutely despises Donald Trump, and a former president who called him Ron DeSanctimonious, I do have to commend Trump for absolutely obliterating his opponent. Policy aside, one must be amazed at how “The Donald” embraced social media trends while taking a hilarious nickname for his biggest challenger while mocking everyone under the sun. I must admit I literally lost it when the “FBI” said on the fake twitter space, “Okay, so how do we get rid of Trump, you guys?”

It’s no secret that DeSantis is essentially a Trump scion, and their differences on policy are minimal. The official campaign slogan now is that he wants to “lead our great American renewal,” which sounds like a bland rip-off of “Make America Great Again,” minus the catchy and recognizable hat. Basically, Trump is trying to paint his opponent as a Trojan horse for the Deep State, or some sort of plant next to the “swamp” Trump promised to drain. The governor doesn’t really dispute this – he used an image of a real swamp creature – an alligator – in the trailer for his run for president.

The fundamental communication failures of DeSantis’s campaign reflected who he really was — an obscure politician with the charisma of expired milk. In fact, some believe that the reason he doesn’t make live announcements on TV like Trump does is because he lacks any serious people skills.if you just Watch the man interact with the public less than a minute.
