All the Ways Donald Trump Will Probably “Handle” Ron DeSantis in 2024 – Vanity Fair

While we don’t know what other names the ex-president will have in store for the governor, we do know that he loves to take shots at his opponents’ heights, and would bet good money that we’ll hear a “Little Ron” before the election cycle is over. The names, as indicated by the aforementioned, also tend to be very juvenile, so “Rotten Ron” has definitely got to be in the cards.

Wifely insults

As Ted Cruz can tell you, Donald Trump has no bottom (nor does Ted, so they make a good pair). During the 2016 election, Trump threatened via tweet to “spill the beans” on Heidi Cruz. Later, he shared an image featuring a side-by-side of Melania Trump and an unflattering photo of Mrs. Cruz, with the caption “No Need To ‘Spill The Beans.’ The Images Are Worth A Thousand Words.” (Senator Cruz responded: “Real men don’t try to bully women. That’s not an action of strength. That’s an action of weakness. It’s an action of fear. It’s an action of a small and petty man who is intimidated by strong women.” Then he quickly started stumping for Trump and is now one of his biggest supporters.)

Trump has already referenced Casey DeSantis, saying before the midterms, of the governor: “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.”

Implying his opponent‘s father was involved in terrible moments in US history

Speaking of Cruz, during the same presidential campaign, Trump suggested the Texas senator‘s father was involved in the assassination of JFK. What might he come up with re: Ron’s dad? We can’t be sure but it would not at all be out of character for him to write something on Truth Social like, “Hearing Little Ron’s dad cut the brakes on JFK Jr.’s fateful flight…a sick puppy if true!”

“I invented her”

Like Regina George before him, Trump takes great pleasure in claiming that Ron DeSantis was a nobody who he single-handedly got elected as governor of Florida the first time. On Monday, in fact, he stated, “I got him elected, pure and simple.” Last November, he said the same, only that time, in the fog of anger, he also implied he committed a major crime in the process, writing on Truth Social:

I also fixed his campaign, which had completely fallen apart. I was all in for Ron, and he beat [Andrew] Gillum, but after the Race, when votes were being stolen by the corrupt Election process in Broward County, and Ron was going down ten thousand votes a day, along with now-Senator Rick Scott, I sent in the FBI and the U.S. Attorneys, and the ballot theft immediately ended, just prior to them running out of the votes necessary to win. I stopped his Election from being stolen.
