Donald Trump questions flummox Ron DeSantis in Japan

'I didn't really do anything to do it except do a good job.'

Ron DeSantis continues to be haunted by Donald Trump, even in Japan.

On Tuesday in Japan (Monday night in the U.S.), the Florida Governor floundered when asked on Hannity why the former President had gone sour on him.

Squinting into the sun, the Governor attempted to take the high road.

“You know, I enjoyed supporting him when he was President. We worked really hard for his re-election in Florida and I always had a good relationship with him. And then once the midterm election happened, he started taking shots at me,” DeSantis said.

“I didn’t really do anything to do it except do a good job. But that’s fine. I mean, Sean, you know, when you’re making things happen, you take incoming from a variety of targets. So that’s just the nature of the business and I’m happy, I’m happy to stand strong and do what’s right.”

DeSantis had inconvenient questions about Trump on Monday in Japan also, with a reporter asking about his poll weakness against Trump.

DeSantis said he’s “not a candidate.”

“We’ll see if and when that changes,” he added, noticeably bobbing his head as he answered.

Trump continues to pillory DeSantis from Florida, including mocking the Governor’s international travel as desperate.

“The ‘Consultants’ are sending DeSanctus, and demanding he go immediately, on an emergency Round the World tour of U.S representative population countries, like South Korea, Japan, the United Kingdom, and Israel, in order to up his game and see if he can remove the stain from his failing campaign. Bad poll numbers!”

In a Newsmax interview Monday night, Trump dismissed the idea of DeSantis being a good candidate, even in the future.

“Look right now, I’m very down on him. I’m a believer in loyalty and I’m a believer in other things and he has obviously not run a very good campaign because he’s getting, he’s getting crushed. So, I really don’t know.”

“I’m very disappointed in him because I’m a loyal person, maybe to a fault. I’m a loyal person and somebody gets you into office and then you’re telling people, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’ll run against the President.’ I mean, life shouldn’t have to work that way. But it does.”

    Ron needs to step aside so I can lose the election in 2024. Otherwise, he will lose and not get a chance to lose in 2028. He will dye his hair blue and move to The Villages.

        👆If Mike Lindell and Alex Jones had a baby…Earl Pitts would be the result. Screen name used to be “Tom” before he called hurricane Ian a “tropical 2 ocean tornado.” Had to change his screen name in order to have another chance at being taken seriously.😆

    If I don’t get nominated in 2024, Trump will definitely lose the election. Are you guys still Republican or what? The idiot can’t win! He’s also a confidence man, a liar, and a failed president. He got people killed and ran off with everyone’s gd money for Christ sakes. Are you people stupid?

      Yes, absolutely we are stupid. That is why we give school shootings a pass based on an afterthought some white supremacists wrote 250+ years ago while we fall for diversions about Harry Potter leading to devil worship, diversions about drag queens reading books aloud, divserions about Disney World releasing one single PR statement saying they disagree with one position taken by Florida’s Governor as a diversion from school shootings. Yes. Yes, we are freaking stupid as all h3ll. Our stupidity is why we come on here writing in support of diversionary tactics employed upon us by our so-called leaders. Our stupidity is why we accept instruction from the ruling classists to consider our equals, our peers, our neighbors as our enemies when it’s the ruling classists who are our actual enemies. The ones pitting us against each other. Hi. It’ them. They’re the problem. It’s them.

      Now that Biden is in, I think you and Trump need to get together and take this election by storm, Trump 4 more years and you as VP. Then in 4 years you as President for the next 8.

    Does Japan have the secret sauce to fix historic flooding and the inept response from the State of Florida? No?

    Tell Mëåtbåll to get back to the place that actually pays him, and I ain’t talking about Heritage Inc.

    Hillarious! It’s like putting two petulant 4-year-olds who only know how to lie in a room and telling them to fight each other. I mean if DiSaster gets flummoxed by someone as brainless as Trump, what on Earth would he do up against Putin? He’d get rolled like a beach ball, just like Trump did. Neither of these clowns is anywhere near qualified to be the President of the United States. Luckily neither ever will be again.

    I’m still haunted by Casey’s frozen, wooden visage under that thick layer of makeup. They’re not ready for prime time. Wrecked tatas aren’t gonna get em there either.

    If you haven’t seen it already, do yourself a favor and search up Ronnie Dion’s “Bobblehead” performance. What a weirdo!
