'I think I'm probably more of an executive guy.'

Any residual hopes of a Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis presidential ticket are not happening.

That’s one takeaway from the Governor’s Thursday night interview on Newsmax with host Eric Bolling.

Asked if he would run as Trump’s Vice Presidential pick, an unlikely scenario given the stream of invective from the former President to the Florida Governor, DeSantis answered judiciously but clearly in the negative.

“I think I’m probably more of an executive guy. I mean, I think that you want to be able to do things. That’s part of the reason I got into this job is because we have action, we’re able to make things happen. And I think that’s probably what I’m best suited for,” DeSantis asserted.

The Governor didn’t warm up to the even more unlikely prospect of Trump serving as his Vice Presidential running mate.

“I think that that’s, it’s interesting, interesting speculation,” DeSantis said, before pivoting to remarks about how the “whole party, regardless of any personalities or individuals, you got to be looking at 2024 saying, you know, if the Biden regime continues and they’re able to pick up, you know, 10, 15 seats in the House and a Senate seat or two, this country is going to be in really, really bad shape, no doubt, no doubt.”

      Typical Left response….resort to name calling when you have nothing else to say.

        LOL, are you serious right now Jon? Or do you have the memory of a goldfish?

        Because we all know Trump never, ever, ever resorted to name calling, and he was the f*cking President. Amiright?

        Typical right response, projecting the hallmark behavior of your own side on others.

        Can’t wait to see what’s next from these two. Loving every minute.

    Which one is going to move out of Florida? Potential 12th Amendment issues surrounding Florida’s electors would be uncharted legal waters and GOP can’t win without Florida’s 30 electoral votes. Given current political environment, it would be very risky to nominate a ticket with presidential & vice presidential candidates from the same state. A can of worms not worth opening.

      Well, hopefully Trump will be moving out of Florida to a NY jail cell. But please not before he finishes polishing off Pudding Boy.
