C'mon Gorki,This shows why right wingers are often unhinged. How can any decent human being like Trump over DeSantis? Because Trump acts like a tough guy, you guys like hm better? How well did his tough guy act workout last time. One thing about January 6th you can't make excuses for Trump is he allowed it to happen for several hours before telling people to stop.
DeSantis policies are right in line with Trumps for the most part. However, DeSantis is a way better person, would not divide the country like Trump, is not half a racist, is way better to work with and work for, but you guys would rather a worse human being in office when you could have DeSantis a way better person with the same policies you like.
First of all I would much prefer DeSantis to Trump but after that you go off the rails.
Folks like Trump for 2 reasons and they are tied together.
1. For how many years have people from both parties [ goes back as far as Jimmy Carter] said they are running as an outsider. [Carter, Reagan, Clinton, Trump etc] However only Trump actually did run things like an outsider. Like it or not is there a President in modern history who actually did what he said he would do more than Trump?
Between the Washington swamp and the MSM Trump ran into huge resistance and only his abrasive personality persevered. Being in favor of a secure border doesn't make you a racist saying there are some true conservatives that don';t support CRT doesn't make you a racist, saying the virus that started in Wuhan was a Chinese virus doesn't make you a xenophobe.
I would like DeSantis because he might try to buck the swamp. More importantly he might be Trump -light. We get maybe 75% of the Trump policy without the huge turnout against Trump that would surely happen if he were to run.
