DeSantis Derangement Syndrome

DeSantis Derangement Syndrome

The recent epidemic of DeSantis Derangement Syndrome is turning some folks into sputtering lunatics.

And here I thought Trump Derangement Syndrome was bad.

In fact, DeSantis Derangement Syndrome is making die-hard Trump supporters indistinguishable from the frothing-at-the-mouth Anti-Trump ResistanceLOL.

At this point, if Ron DeSantis jumped into the 2024 race, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if those suffering from DeSantis Derangement Syndrome scheduled a “Scream Helplessly at the Sky” Day.

While Trump remains firmly wedged inside his Truth Social bubble, his most ardent fans are picking up the slack on Twitter, making laughingly absurd “arguments” for why Ron DeSantis is the worst possible choice for voters.

This past week, they even tried to run with “George Soros endorsed Ron DeSantis for President.”

Oh, man. I howled when I saw that.

If someone asked me about the 2024 race and I said, “If Biden runs, he will likely be the Democrat nominee. He is a malleable empty vessel that is easily controlled and because he can play the kindly grandfather routine, he would be less threatening to moderate and suburban voters than, say, Kamala Harris or Pete Buttigieg. So if Biden runs for reelection, he will win the nomination.”

Is that Dianny endorsing Joe Biden for president?

LOL! Of course not. It’s just Dianny offering her opinion.

But when Soros offers his opinion of the Republican field, the Anti-DeSantis ResistanceLOL, suffering as they are from DeSantis Derangement Syndrome, trip all over themselves to argue that Soros endorsed DeSantis.

Seriously, guys. If you go to the Gateway Pundit for “news,” you’re being just as ridiculous as the slack-jawed anti-Trumpers who fall for Aaron Rupar’s tweets. Be better.

Remember when the anti-Trump ResistanceLOL lost its mind after Trump called the violent Salvadoran gang MS-13 “animals?”

“Trump called undocumented immigrants ‘animals!!!’ OH, THE HUMANITY!!!

Yeah, he didn’t call immigrants “animals.” But truth and reality are the first two casualties for those gripped in the throes of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The same thing is happening with the folks gripped by DeSantis Derangement Syndrome. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush attends the current Florida governor’s inauguration, and those guys conclude that DeSantis is “palling around” with Jeb Bush, therefore he’s a RINO establishment cuck who is supported by the Bushes.


When your arguments become as poorly thought out as the anti-Trump ResistanceLOL, it might be time for you to take a long hard look in the mirror.

The anti-Trump ResistanceLOL spawned “Twitter influencers” who are so mind-numbingly dumb that they lack the combined brain wattage to power an Easy Bake oven.

Likewise, the anti-DeSantis ResistanceLOL has its own set of so-called “Twitter influencers” whose arguments are so laughingly moronic that they couldn’t even win a debate with Maxine Waters.

What other choice do I have but to point at these weirdos and laugh?

I mean, if Trump’s social media strategy hinges on the mindless verbal dribblings of lunatics like Laura Loomer, his campaign isn’t bringing its A-Game.

It would be one thing if DeSantis Derangement Syndrome was only infecting Trump’s completely deranged surrogates on Twitter. But it isn’t.

Donald Trump is infected too.

Trump is losing his ever-loving mind over DeSantis, mostly because DeSantis doesn’t give him a moment’s thought.

Rita Panahi once pointed out that Donald Trump is blessed with truly moronic opponents. And she was right, until now. DeSantis is the first formidable opponent Trump has ever faced, and it’s making Donald all manner of upset.

Unlike the rest of the people Trump attacks, DeSantis doesn’t take the bait. Rather than howl in indignation and attack Trump back, DeSantis just keeps plugging along as if Trump doesn’t exist. Trump’s silly name-calling rolls off DeSantis like he’s been Scotch-Guarded.

And Donald Trump isn’t used to that, at all.

His power is derived from goading his opponents into responding. The goal is to burrow under his opponent’s skin until, in a fit of pique, his target can no longer take it and lashes back. The defensive, angry response then feeds Trump’s attacks all the more. And when the opponent is left in a sputtering puddle on the floor, Trump walks away triumphant.

It worked for Trump every time. For heaven’s sake, he needled Liz Warren with his Pocahontas attacks to the point where she was goaded into taking a DNA test that proved she wasn’t Indian. LOL!

But then along comes the unflappable Ron DeSantis whose indifference to Trump deprives Donald of the very fuel he needs to win a fight.

And when DeSantis refuses to take the bait, rather than give up, Donald Trump doubles down, launching even more outlandish, petulant attacks that DeSantis ignores. In the end, Trump is left looking so wounded and desperate that he is the one who ends up in a sputtering puddle on the floor.

Rush Limbaugh often said if you want to know whom people fear, look at whom they attack.

Donald Trump and his die-hard fans on Twitter fear Ron DeSantis. You can almost see the flop-sweat flying off of them every time they flog their latest DeSantis attack.

But they aren’t the only ones suffering from DeSantis Derangement Syndrome.

You know who else is?

Well, for starters:
The Democrats
The Biden administration
The corporate news media
The unhinged “woke” Leftists
And Academia

Personally, I would love it if Ron DeSantis ran for the 2024 nomination, if for no other reason than to delight in the thermonuclear-sized meltdown that it would trigger.

But that’s not the only reason. DeSantis would be an excellent 2024 primary candidate. The other Republican politicians considering a presidential run are just pathetic.

Asa Hutchinson? Larry Hogan? I mean, come on!

For heaven’s sake. Nikki Haley seems to think she’s running for president in 2008.

Most of the people teasing about running are the 2024 equivalent of Lincoln Chaffee running against Hillary in 2016.

Republican voters deserve a raucous, healthy primary season where viable, serious contenders battle it out for the privilege of earning our votes. Ron DeSantis fits the bill whereas the clowns currently flitting to Iowa and New Hampshire between regular appearances on “Meet the Press” do not.

But just pointing out that I would love it if Ron DeSantis runs in 2024 will cause the DeSantis Deranged to lose their marbles. I’ll be called a “turncoat,” a “shill,” and “disloyal” simply for wanting to see the most popular elected Republican in the country run for president.

It makes no sense to me. It really doesn’t.

Then again, I don’t suffer from DeSantis Derangement Syndrome.

    Trump, Desantis, etc. It doesn’t matter who the nominee is. Might as well just nominate George Santos, skip any kind of support, and save a bunch of money in the process. The dems, with the help of social media, the left wing MSM, the courts, and feckless state legislatures, will continue to ballot harvest and make 2 am vote dumps until they drag whatever piece of flotsam or jetsam rises to the surface of their progressive cesspool across the finish line to complete the destruction of this once great country. Conservatives should also not count on holding the House, or gaining the Senate, as the selection of cretins like Fetterman and Warnock proves that state elections are every bit as compromised as the federal ones. Free and fair elections have been relegated to the dust bin of history and the socialist/communist political juggernaut is likely unstoppable at this point. On a lighter note, Tucker mocked Kameltoe’s use of “in terms of” on his show, so kudos for being ahead of the grammar nightmare curve.

      I know in my state of Washington, the 2004 election for Governor was a Keystone Kops version of election fraud: Gregoire (D) needed three recounts plus a car trunk full of uncounted ballots to defeat Rossi (R). Indeed, a friend of mine in King County (the home county of Seattle) received two ballots in the mail: one at her home and another at her work address — vote early and often is still thing out here. But any review of the newspapers over the last 130+ years will show how Seattle and King County have been cheating in elections in this state since statehood (1889). Election fraud is not a new idea out here; no, it’s tradition.

      Very true. Which is why I am wondering if DeSantis will actually enter the 2024 race. On the pro side, he is presumably interested in higher office and the only one higher than his current governorship would be the presidency. He also seems genuinely interested in improving things, and the presidency would be one route to do that.

      On the con side, he has to know that getting into the race will make him and his family targets for the media smear machine and for a whole lot of barely-restrained lunatics across the entire political spectrum. Of course, he already is getting a lot of that just for being a popular governor who speaks his mind on national issues. But the craziness would go up several notches if he enters the race, and several more notches if he wins the GOP nomination. Would he want to subject himself and his family that that, when vote fraud means he would have zero chance of actually becoming president?

      DeSantis seems like a reasonably sane person for a public political figure. I would not be surprised if he decides to not run for national office and remain governor in Florida.

      The truth is so depressing…but it is still the truth. We are completely hosed.
