Ron DeSantis wants supporters to have a ‘stress-free holiday’

'You deserve better than stressing over what you can afford for your family at Christmas, at Hannukah (SIC), or in the middle of the summer.'

A new fundraising appeal from the Ron DeSantis presidential campaign speaks to a Christmas cash crunch among his base.

“You deserve better than stressing over what you can afford for your family at Christmas, at Hannukah (SIC), or in the middle of the summer. You should never be under this much strain because of the leaders you trusted to elect,” DeSantis promised Saturday.

“We will take back control of our destiny, and enjoy the financial freedom that used to be attainable in this country. As your President, I promise you I will never stop fighting to get you the stress-free holiday season that’s been taken away from you for so many years now.”

The holiday message was followed up by a fundraising pitch, in which the campaign “pre-checked the monthly donor box on our fundraising page.”

“Monthly donors make a HUGE difference for our team and help ups (SIC) plan ahead,” the email notes.

The Governor’s campaign has spoken to its financial struggles more of late. This includes an email appealing to supporters to travel to Iowa to try to motivate people in the caucuses, but with a reminder those travelers shouldn’t expect the campaign to compensate for associated expenses.

“If you’re not comfortable with the possibility of paying your own way, we completely understand. We will do our best to connect you with others joining us from out of state and those who are local to help defray transport and hotel costs.”

      Thank you Beloved Sonja for reaching out to me, Earl Pitts American, for a “Sage Reply” to your totally legitamate question of “All Critical Importance” to the “Very Survival” of our Great Nation.
      What Ron is convaying to you, Beloved Sonja, and the rest of our Great Patriots is this:
      Too much political stress is not healthy and will ruin your holiday for yourself and all your beloved relatives who have to be in your presence. Such stress often leads to your sphincter locking up and causing cramps and painfull constipation over the Holidays.
      NOT GOOD:
      So to break it down, Ron has appointed me, Earl Pitts American, as “The Spincter CZAR” of our Great Nation. Now you have your answer:
      Ron and Earl urge you to relax your sphincter over the holidays so you will not ruin Christmas, or whatever y’all celebrate, with a painfull political “Worry Wart” sphincter lock-up.
      Be sure to vote DeSantis my Dear Sonja and anyone else lucky enough to read my Sage Wisdom.

    My holiday and my life would be a lot less stressful if Tiny D and his grifter enablers would disappear.

    Is Rhonda promising to do something about pay disparity where CEO types “earn” 300x the wages of their average employee? I ain’t buying it. That’s labor union kind of talk, not today’s G0P kind of talk.

    What’s with the weird photo op of him standing in front of a wall full of murder weapons? Dude is unhinged.

      Agreed, although the photo was used previously here. The initial time it appeared here I assumed it was a photo from a Dec. 2023 engagement.
      The MAGA types and the gun lobby have made everyone’s life more problematic than necessary. A hell of a gift to our successors.

    I just got paid 7268 Dollars Working off my Laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, My Divorced friend has twin toddlers and made 0ver $ 13892 her first m0nth. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to as10 work for so much less.

    This is what I do……………………….> > >

    I sure hope nobody was at the mall getting shot. That would be stressful for Floridians. And Rhonda’s Guns Everywhere didn’t live up to promises. Constitutional Carry didn’t, once again,save the day or save so much as one single person.

    Brightline trains killed more people per mile in the U.S. last year and more people in Florida since its founding in 2017 than any other railroad company, a TCPalm analysis of federal data found. Since October, at least 104 people have been killed in collisions with Brightline trains, reports show.

    So not only does he spell Hanukkah wrong, but he gives money only to ask for money?
