Trump had no legislative history when he ran in 2016. DeSantis does.

Voters did not know what they were in for with a Trump presidency. We had fears, but no concrete evidence of how he would govern. DeSantis is an entirely different story. We have proof of how destructive he is and will be if elected.

1. I said the same thing many times before.

TFG could position himself wherever he wants on any given issue, and he did for most of them. He is a little left on the first sentence and then went right on the next and people kind of viewed him as a moderate. Once his policies were known in his term, along with his crazy antics, swing voters turned away from him. With DeSantis, his against woke policies and many other right wing policies will turn off those swing voters as well.

2. He has a history now. The first president to declassify top secret nuclear documents.

5. True

However, don’t underestimate the impulse by media to normalize him relative to Trump. Have seen some instances of that already.

“Well, at least he’s not crazy like Trump” or the like.

“He’s more normal than Trump” said by two panelists and the host on Real Time a few weeks ago.

6. Well, so far as my governor, he's governed with the style of a rabid badger.

So there's that on the record.

7. If Trump's running (& not in prison),

he'll go after DeSantis and damage him.

I think the GOP will cut Trump's political throat before that.

8. I could be wrong but I think the DeSantis flame is gonna burn out

He’s gone way too far to the right already and he’s a very unappealing person. I remember when he yelled at the high school kids for wearing masks at a photo op, they were probably just doing what they were told by the teachers. He’s a fucking bully. I guess we just gotta call them the fucking bully party

Wise quote from Maya Angelou.
