I wake up this morning to find out that Governor Ron DeSantis apparently has a “glass jaw” and is “easily offended” or something.
At least that’s what all of his detractors are saying it, both on social media and tv.
The knives are clearly out for DeSantis now that he’s the biggest name in the Republican Party, and it all seems to have started with this guy yesterday, whoever he is:
I may be in the minority here but I think DeSantis will not succeed on a national level. Too toxic. Too brittle. Too much of a martinet. Florida is not like the rest of America. Even Red America. Protracted scrutiny will hurt him. So will a vindictive Trump. https://t.co/NRJi5u3NfL

“Too toxic. Too brittle. Too much of a martinet”???
I don’t get this analysis at all. If I didn’t know any better I’d think they were talking about someone else, not DeSantis.
Then came the “glass jaw” comments from the typical anti-Trumper crowd:
As I've been saying, this guy has a glass jaw. Watching even Charlie Crist put him on reset in a debate told us a lot. https://t.co/3yGDCjYfvR

DeSantis has ZERO charisma. He’s weird with people. He’s cruel. He’s driven by a huge authoritarian impulse. He can’t think on his feet. He has a glass jaw. And he’s super easily offended. Totally this.👇 https://t.co/ehhQDJ1IkD

Cruel? Authoritarian? WHO IS HE TALKING ABOUT because none of this describes Governor DeSantis.
Then one former Republican turned lib takes this on MSNBC this morning to root for a Trump DeSantis fight:
'Morning Joe' joins Donald Trump in hammering Ron DeSantis via former Republican-turned-liberal David Jolly: "Ron DeSantis famously has a glass jaw, fragile ego.

Mark Levin said that the media was trying to goad DeSantis and Trump into a fight and they are doing exactly that. Trump has clearly already fallen for it but I really don’t expect DeSantis will. I think he’ll just ignore it and questions about it, and continue governor the great state of Florida.
