Donald Trump
The former President dished on DeSantis' 'lack of personality.'

Donald Trump is continuing his one-sided attacks against Florida’s Governor.

In a series of Truth Social posts, the former President panned Ron DeSantis, saying he needs a “personality transplant.”

“The problem with Ron DeSanctimonious is that he needs a personality transplant, and those are not yet available. Almost all Congressmen and women that served with him and knew him well supported me, some of them surprisingly so because of their relationship with Ron,” Trump said.

“I would say that when it comes to lack of personality, Ron would be in a class with Asa Hutchinson, and that’s not good,” Trump added.

Trump also mocked DeSantis’ recent travels to Japan, South Korea, Israel and the United Kingdom as a “total bomb.”

“They didn’t even know what he was doing there. ‘What are you doing here, Ron? Why are you here?’ It was a mess,” Trump said.

Trump also discussed a recent Morning Consult poll that had him ahead of DeSantis by more than 40 points, the largest lead of the cycle for the former President.

“You’ve been watching him fall, he’s falling at record levels and we’ll keep it that way,” Trump said.

Trump also offered yet another reminder of the Governor’s reliance on him to get elected in 2018.

“In December 2017, Ron DeSanctimonious was polling at 5% in the Republican primary for Governor of Florida. DeSantis had virtually no endorsements and was being drastically outraised by Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, the widely viewed favorite. Ron had zero chance of winning. On December 21, 2017, President Donald J. Trump Endorsed in support of DeSanctus. His polling skyrocketed, and DeSantis won the Republican primary, 57%-37%, all because of President Trump.”

    Rarely does Trump admit to his mistakes, but all his caterwauling about Rhonda amounts to an admission: Trump made a bigly mistake with boosting Rhonda to Fleur D’uh Gub’nership. And Pence as VP, and everybody else Trump ever boosted in the polls or appointed to his cabinet or staff. And that’s according to Trump! Just ask him. He never met anybody that ever worked him. He doesn’t know them at all! Same goes for his voters. 1000+ of them in prison because of him, and he never heard of them, never met them, doesn’t know anything about them. Why would anyone vote for, or support in ANY way, Trump or Rhonda? It is beyond understanding.

    Trump has a dangerous personality I don’t know what he’s talking about. On the other hand, DeSanctimonious isn’t fit to be a politician. Too elitist and poor political ideology… economic policy is just to shovel money to the rich forever and social politics of division and scapegoating minority segments of the population… otherwise continue to sabotage and obstruct the federal government to benefit “the tax payer” ( the rich.) Also whacko religious laws and achieve Singapore here in Florida.

    I would say the Florida governor could certainly use a heart transplant to counteract his icy cruelty and compassion deficit.

    Trump falls somewhere between a sociopath and a psychopath on the continuum of mental disorders. His frequent breaks from reality and unbounded sense of entitlement places him in the psychopath domain. Supporting evidence is his need to humiliate women, men and anyone who doesn’t buy into his fantasies. On the other hand Joe Biden’s deteriorating cognition places him on the cusp of a total break of reality. The Lewy bodies are running rampant as confirmed by his gait, constant fabrication and Jesus complex. In his cluttered brain Biden knows his time is running out and wants to leave a legacy behind, even if it means destroying American traditions and the American economy. Joe Biden will be remembered as the American Nero. Donald Trump will be remembered as a loud mouth comedian who blew the chance of a lifetime. Americans need to realize that by voting for either one of these flaws me, we sealed our downfall. The gates are open and the barbarians have begun to sack Rome. B
