“More Dangerous than Trump” – The DeSantis Download: July 24, 2023

What’s up next for Ron DeSantis?

On Sunday, Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign released a six-minute montage of liberal media personalities repeatedly warning viewers that DeSantis is a “more dangerous” presidential candidate than former President Donald Trump.

The video – posted on the DeSantis War Room YouTube and Twitter accounts –  features Leftist media commentators such as David Pakman, Van Jones and Olayemi Olurin.

"I honestly believe DeSantis was forged in Hell,” Olurin says in the video. “There’s no doubt in my mind.”

“This guy is worse than Trump,” Jones says in the video.

“If you thought Donald Trump was bad, you got another thing coming,” U.S. Rep. Maxwell Frost (D-FL) says. DeSantis is accused of being more “savvy,” “disciplined” and “competent” than Trump by the pundits – suggesting he’d be more capable of executing a conservative Republican agenda.

“He’s honestly more sinister, you know why? Because there’s less buffoonery to it,” Olurin says.

“The Trump agenda would be far more likely to be carried on by people less cartoonishly problematic, and Ron Desantis is a perfect example of such an individual,” Pakman argues in the video. Former Florida Congressman David Jolly (D-FL) said: “Based on what he’s done in five years in Florida, what would he do with all the levers of power in the White House?”
