President Trump is famous for his nicknames that really stick… and now he’s giving Ron DeSantis that blessing.
Trump has been floating a few catchy options for the Republican governor of Florida, who is seen as Trump’s main rival for the 2024 presidential race.
Apparently, Trump is considering calling DeSantis “Tiny D,” which is just hilarious if you ask me. The Daily Caller asked Trump about the nickname during an interview, and he said, “Tiny D is good.”
But you know what? Trump is a classy guy, and he knows when to draw the line…
That’s why he’s not going to use the nickname “Meatball Ron.”
He called that option “too crude.” I mean, I can’t say I disagree with him on that one. (“Meatball” is a nickname I reserve exclusively for much bigger, totally irredeemable, sad losers, like Larry Hogan.)
While the president showed restraint with the nicknames, he did NOT hold back when it came to discussing Florida’s governor.
He said, “Remember this, if it weren’t for me, Ron DeSanctimonious would right now be working probably at a law firm or maybe a Pizza Hut, I don’t know.”
Trump also compared DeSantis to Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney, which is literally the most brutal thing he could’ve done.
The Army of Ron DeSantis Twitter bots is very upset by this whole conversation but, personally, I think it’s all just good fun.
Politics can be so serious sometimes, it’s nice to have a little bit of humor thrown in. And let’s be real, “Tiny D” is pretty funny.
If DeSantis can’t handle this little jab – he’s not going to be able to handle this race.
