People are going to be studying the disastrous campaign of Ron DeSantis for the next few years trying to figure out where it all went wrong. In his latest self-inflicted wound, DeSantis called Trump supporters “listless vessels” who have no purpose in our lives, other than waiting for Donald Trump to send us our daily marching orders on Truth Social.
Talk about pouring gasoline on yourself and lighting a match!
Where did it all go wrong for the DeSantis campaign, anyway? Was it lighting those strippers’ butt cheeks on fire at the campaign’s Christmas party last December? Was it that train wreck of a campaign launch on Twitter? Was it when they had to send Ron DeSantis to a special school to teach him how and when to smile like a normal human?
Who knows? But what we do know is that the “listless vessels” comment now has Ron DeSantis polling in fourth place in New Hampshire, trailing Chris Christie’s “Fat Chance” campaign. That’s not something that anyone would have predicted two or three weeks ago. Good grief!
The Trump campaign, which is being run by actual professionals and a real candidate for president, was quick to seize on the “listless vessels” insult. They compiled a campaign commercial of everyday Trump supporters, from Hawaii to the East Coast, who are less than pleased with the Florida Governor’s remarks about their intelligence and fortitude.
