When they go low, we go berserk, is Ron DeSantis’ new motto, it looks like. And you thought Donald Trump had problems with impulse control? Wait until you take a look at this. This is just one more in a series of endless examples of why this man is not cut out for public service, let alone the presidency. He simply cannot keep his cool. If a reporter or a citizen asks him an uncomfortable question, he loses it. Here’s the latest.
The video is terrifying. The Black man is escorted out and then people give DeSantis a standing ovation, ratifying the way he handled the situation. He did not handle it right by any normal measure of how things are done in situations like this one, where a candidate is asked inflammatory, if not explosive, questions in the normal course of business.
That’s what the job is, is tackling the hard questions. DeSantis doesn’t want to be bothered. He wants to do woke. Don’t annoy him with gun control, homelessness, climate change, skyrocketing rents and insurance premiums in his own state, he’s too busy trying to get through the next photo op and not smear his makeup or trip on his high heels.
How dare anybody expect an actual policy or a vision, an answer of any sort from this man? If DeSantis had his way, the guy wouldn’t have only been escorted out, he would have been shipped to Guantanamo — where DeSantis could mock him while selling disinformation about being a Navy SEAL.
DeSantis is a complete fraud. And this video going around will tank his ratings further.
What floors me about the man is that he just doesn’t get what governance is at root. It’s being the responsible party, the person that people ask about difficult problems. Remember the sign on Harry Truman’s desk, The Buck Stops Here? That’s what the job is, being the responsible adult in the room and handling conflict, not being a whiny child and losing your temper.
What a bench of non talent the GOP has, if DeSantis, Ramaswamy and Haley are in a three way tie for second place. Of the three, the most credible is Haley and that says it all right there. The GOP is well and truly phucked.
