Donald Trump’s traces in the Republican Party are now very clear. To win big with the Conservatives, lawmakers must mimic Trump’s behavior.
Ron DeSantis has a little more pedigree than Trump. The Navy veteran received his bachelor’s degree from Yale and a law degree from Harvard. However, the Florida governor is more than happy to dumb down his rhetoric.
A recent poll of Republican voters showed that DeSantis’ strategy is working. Colorado Republicans said they preferred Florida governor Trump as a candidate for the 2024 GOP. Samantha Bee recently explained why this is so scary.
“Folks, after five years of hell that was the 2020 election, the 2024 presidential election is finally getting underway, ”said the comedian. “And sweet American Jesus, we may already have a front runner for the Republican nomination!”
Biene continued: “Governor Ron DeSantis, please look me in the eye and eat shit. You’re one of the worst governors in Florida history, and you had Jeb Bush and Nosferatu. “
The host has closed the segment, “Ron DeSantis isn’t exactly a genius, but even a slightly less stupid, more competent version of Trump could be very dangerous! Whether or not its agenda is passed, DeSantis still wins by signaling its MAGA levels to a base that may be striving for a Trump 2.0, minus some flaws from the broken first version. “
Trump’s reign may be coming to an end, but DeSantis’ reign is seemingly beginning. With many GOP voters comparing him to Ronald Reagan, it is unlikely to end anytime soon.
