Email insights: What Ron DeSantis doesn’t want Donald Trump to see

'Wouldn’t it be a shame if Trumpworld got a hold of this?'

Gov. Ron DeSantis is in the Rust Belt Friday, in the latest example of political commitments taking the Governor out of Tallahassee.

And the Lincoln Project asserts that he’s hoping a potential 2024 rival of his isn’t paying close attention.

In “What Ron DeSantis doesn’t want Donald Trump to see,” the anti-Trump group spotlights a fundraising email from DeSantis to supporters as he’s “flying off to Utah and Nantucket and Arizona … to raise national money (and outflank Trump with the ultra-MAGA crew).”

The email quoted therein is the standard celebratory self-regard about how DeSantis kept Florida free by banning Zuckerbucks, critical race theory, sanctuary cities, and other totems of woke-ism, and it sets up the supposition that DeSantis is petitioning the Almighty for Trump’s downfall.

“Can’t you just see him watching the January 6th Committee hearings and praying for an indictment every time Merrick Garland calls a press conference while having his digital team squeeze every dollar they can out of the ultra-MAGA donor base? Ron’s just praying Trump’s too busy trying to find a criminal defense attorney to notice that he’s coming for Trump’s crown.”

The Lincoln Project has often juxtaposed Trump against DeSantis, as discussion continues to churn about whether he’s ready to topple the man whose endorsement was almost singularly responsible for him getting the Republican nomination four years ago against Adam Putnam. The last such comparison was as part of a limited market ad buy two days ago (Bedminster and Palm Beach targets) denoting Trump’s isolation in the GOP.

A spot last month honed in on the alleged conflict between Trump and DeSantis. “Star” depicts DeSantis as what a media release calls “the new MAGA superstar overtaking Donald Trump as the standard-bearer for the authoritarian movement formerly known as the GOP.”

”Ron DeSantis is the hot young starlet in the MAGAverse. DeSantis has taken everything from Trump but his trophy wife. DeSantis and his team are already picking out curtains in the White House and enjoying the January 6th Commission’s devastating attacks on Trump,” Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson asserted at the time.

Prior to that, both January and February ad buys were localized to Tallahassee and Palm Beach media markets on the Fox News Channel.

    Right wingers made the Left God angry 2016 – 2020 which required an animal sacrifice to appease the god…which was one big fat pig Donald Trump. Just be glad that’s all it took …that and about a million spankings. Learn your lessons and don’t let it happen again. It might be worse next time.

      So you voted for a career politician that has enriched himself and his family for years. A Plantation Owner as you would say Corsin / Offen. Now this incompetent and rapidly deteriorating old man is in charge of the country, and his VP is as incompetent as he is. God Help us the next 2.5 years. Putin has launched his aggression against Ukraine. Will China follow suit with Taiwan? No one fears that bumbling fool.

        The Dems do things for ordinary people. The GOP doesn’t do anything for anyone but the rich. Also dangerous far right party that should be declared a national security threat and eliminated. By God you people are dogs and don’t care about anything but your wallet here and now, don’t care about the future of the nation, don’t care about the future of humanity or the planet. By God you people are hogs and dogs. Dogs are smarter, better behaved, worth more to humanity.

          Don’t be deluded Joe. The Democrats are also slaves to corporations. If you think they’re for the little people, your head is way up your ass!

        If your claim is that Biden is corrupt, you’d have to point out where his millions are hidden. Trump’s grifts & scams are all out there, one golden toilet at a time.

    For the vast majority of people who DO NOT live in Florida, DeSantis is looked at as the epitome of everything that we dislike in Trump with a “look at how wonderful I am” ego that is off the charts.
