Former President Trump attacks Governor Ron DeSantis again, trying to tie him to Paul Ryan just because he made one comment about Paul Ryan a long time ago.
Here’s the video from this week:
President Trump attacks DeSantis:
"Ron was a disciple of Paul Ryan, who is a RINO loser who currently is destroying Fox… To be honest with you, Ron reminds me a lot of Mitt Romney." pic.twitter.com/tNrwJBIzAm

It’s based on this video from Crazy Laura Loomer:
The case for #Trump2024
“I’d be somebody who would be different. I think you see that I’ve been recognized nationally as being somebody who’d be different, who’d be a leader, who could be somebody like PAUL RYAN very quickly.”

This smear of DeSanis is nothing but an outright lie. DeSantis was never a disciple of Paul Ryan.
As we’ve pointed out, DeSantis opposed Paul Ryan for Speaker in 2015. If he was such a disciple, he would have endorsed Ryan for Speaker. Instead he endorsed Daniel Webster:

But speaking of someone that sounded like a big fan of Paul Ryan, I think we have a winner:
Speaker Paul Ryan is a truly good man, and while he will not be seeking re-election, he will leave a legacy of achievement that nobody can question. We are with you Paul!

It’s important to note that Trump wasn’t trying to shmooze Ryan. He was retiring so there was nothing left to get from Paul Ryan. Trump said this from his heart and meant every word of it.
So who’s the RINO loser now?
