Well, well an intelligent democrat!! They'll kick him out of the loony lib party for sure!!! 

 

 DAVE KERNER: I've been a registered Democrat since I registered to vote at the age of 18. I don't really see it as going against my party. I'm a Floridian, an American first. But there's a confluence of reasons. The trajectory of our state, which I spoke about in my endorsement, his support for law enforcement, his management of the COVID 19 pandemic. There is's a host of reasons why I endorsed him

Trump Threatens to Reveal Unflattering Information About DeSantis if He Runs

Several hours before polls opened Tuesday for Election Day in Florida, former President Donald Trump warned the state’s governor, Ron DeSantis, against mounting a challenge to Trump’s own anticipated presidential candidacy in the 2024 election cycle.

“If he runs, he runs,” Trump said of DeSantis to a handful of reporters traveling with him on his private plane — recently refurbished and put back into use — after a rally Monday night in Dayton, Ohio.

But Trump added, in remarks published Tuesday by The Wall Street Journal, “If he did run, I will tell you things about him that won’t be very flattering. I know more about him than anybody other than perhaps his wife, who is really running his campaign.”

The former president, preparing to announce a rare candidacy for the White House after a defeat, was thus openly threatening to smear the person who would be considered his leading rival, should he choose to run.

Trump, who for decades threatened business rivals and partners, reporters and critics alike with lawsuits or the possibility of being humiliated, has taken slash-and-burn politics to new heights.

He encouraged his supporters to disseminate dirt about President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, brought women who had accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct to his debate against Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016, and tweeted a vague threat about Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife in the Republican presidential primary that year.

But now, advisers say, Trump is quicker to anger and frequently in a state of near-rage about not being president anymore.

On Monday night in Dayton, Trump referred to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., whose husband was recently bludgeoned with a hammer by an intruder who was looking for Pelosi, as an “animal” because she led the effort to impeach him twice as president.

Trump’s threats don’t always carry much weight, but his words are heard by his supporters, such as those who rioted at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

And over the past year, Trump’s use of violent rhetoric at his rallies has increased. He has recited accounts of grisly crimes to heighten perceptions of disorder under Democratic leadership; threatened future jail sentences for reporters to coerce them into revealing their sources, lest they face rape by other prisoners; and said he would prescribe the death penalty for drug dealers.

Trump had to be talked out of announcing his own presidential campaign Monday night by advisers, family members and Republican leaders, according to several people briefed on the discussions. Instead, he is widely expected to make an announcement sometime next week; he urged his supporters to stay tuned for a “very big announcement” Nov. 15.

Trump has long made clear that he wants to be president again, although several advisers said he seemed halfhearted about another campaign for much of the past 20 months. But his use of blunt threats to dissuade DeSantis suggests he is ready to reengage politically.

DeSantis has occupied Trump’s thinking for months, as he and other potential candidates — including Trump’s former vice president, Mike Pence — have made moves toward candidacies of their own.

Over the weekend, Trump road-tested a nickname for DeSantis, “Ron DeSanctimonious,” to the dismay of a number of conservatives.

And there is the problem that Trump true believers don't understand other people have with him...and them. 

I don't put a lot of stock in what he says all the time, he's all over the place ... I care about what he has done that's positive for America 🇺🇸  ... and that’s a lot .... he accomplished more good  👍🏻  things for America  🇺🇸  than any President in my lifetime .... unlike stumbling and bumbling Pedo Plugs 🔌  ..... who has destroyed our encomy and has opened the border to drug dealers, terrorists,  human smugglers and illegal aliens 👽  ....  how can you support that :poop: Larry? ....

I’m afraid this style of trump will backfire on him this go around. 

It will backfire on him this time.  

This is just my opinion.  Take it for what it is worth:

I think a Trump endorsement for politics as a Republican is fine.  However, I believe running your campaign on Trump talking points and using Trump tactics is why you did not see a red wave at these midterms. 

As someone said earlier, they think we are crazy as much as we think they are crazy.  So I am going to make my SDC graphic:

<Harris/Biden/Pelosi------------------------------Joe Machin---- Middle----Romney/McConnell--------------------------DeSantis-------Trump>

Both parties need to move back towards the underlined basic line graph if don't want our country to go to crap.  I really like DeSantis.  I think by winning Miami-Dade County in FL last night, it shows that hispanic and legal immigrants trust and like his policies.  I would love to see the Democrats roll out similar candidates to show some normalcy back in American politics.

If it makes you feel any better, I would 100% not vote for Trump in a primary.  I think he plays dirty politics and I think it would lead to an actual Civil War.  One side shooting Rainbow themed gender reveal cannons and the other shooting with bazookas and illegally obtained M249's.

However, if Trump were to win the Republican nomination and went against Biden, Harris, Schumer etc I absolutely 100% would cast my ballot for Trump and feel good about it.  The direction that this administration has taken our country in makes $100,000 feel like $1000.
