Ron DeSantis Is So Painfully Awkward That Folks Who Despise the Man Really feel Sorry for Him: Report

If latest polls—or commentary from his allies—are something to go by, Ron DeSantis doesn’t have a shot in hell at successful the GOP nomination for president, regardless of successfully being declared the way forward for the social gathering roughly 9 months in the past. That flip of occasions can in all probability be chalked as much as a mixture of (1) the chokehold Donald Trump maintains on thousands and thousands of Republican voters, even those who imagine the ex-president is a felony, (2) the Florida governor’s hateful insurance policies again house, which he refuses to cease speaking about, and (3) DeSantis’s overwhelming awkwardness.

How awkward are we speaking? So awkward that The Washington Put up wrote a complete article about individuals who, whereas being totally clear about how a lot they assume DeSantis sucks, say they see a number of themselves within the governor—as a result of they too discover it close to unattainable to work together with different people. That article is titled “Awkward People see themselves in Ron DeSantis,” and in case you’re questioning, Wait, may this in some way be an excellent factor for the Florida governor’s candidacy?—the reply may be very a lot no.

Sure, however in all probability not when persons are saying issues like “I undoubtedly got here throughout as a DeSantis,” when meaning performing like, as one social media musing memorialized by the Put up put it, “an extraterrestrial in a skin-suit making an attempt to study to be human.”

“I can’t inform the place the awkwardness that I relate to ends and the malicious determine begins,” Whitlock, the By no means Trumper, advised the outlet. Making it clear that relatability apart, there’s no manner in hell she’d forged a poll for the man, Ecke put it this manner: “Given the choice between voting for him and getting a Pap smear from a woman I went to highschool with, hand me the paper robe.”

Nonetheless, DeSantis’s allies nonetheless imagine he has a shot and are clearly hoping that subsequent week’s GOP debate will likely be a possibility for him to interrupt by means of to voters.
