On Thursday, ABC’s ‘The View’ co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin told her colleagues that Governor Ron DeSantis is “overhyped” when it comes to being a potential 2024 presidential candidate.
The former White House Director of Strategic Communications argued, “On DeSantis, I think he is so overhyped. I’m just going, to be honest, I’ve seen Trump take out every mini version of Trump for the last five years. I think right now, the party wants something other than Trump. They want Trump light, so they are boosting and hyping DeSantis.”
She continued, “He doesn’t do national interviews. He does nothing on the national stage. I think he will implode once Trump goes after him and keeps going after him. My sense is this, how ugly this got this quickly is remarkable and spells for a very bad two years. Trump went straight to you’re a groomer. Maybe save that for June before the primary.”
A fake Republican describing someone else as overrated…interesting.
Co-host Joy Behar replied, “Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct 26 times. Like my mother used to say don’t spit up in the air, it comes back in your face.”
Behar asked, “What is DeSantis supposed to do in the primary debates when Trump calls him a pedophile or something on the air? How is DeSantis supposed to respond to that?”
Griffin answered, “I honestly think you defeat Trump by mocking the absurdity and rising above it.”
DeSantis has never even indicated that he plans to run for president in 2024. He was just sworn in for his second term as Florida governor and running for president would derail his position running the Sunshine State.
I’m not saying he couldn’t surprise us all and announce a run, but I do not think it is likely at this time. Although, I do get a kick out of seeing all the terrified RINOs and Democrats who think he may toss his had in the ring.
