It begins: Donald Trump shares memes accusing Fl Gov Ron DeSantis of 'grooming' and pedophilia

The 2024 Republican primary has officially begun. In the mud.

I don't like Donald Trump or Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, so I am enjoying this. 

Political pundits and the like all agree that Trump and DeSantis may be the top two vying for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination and it looks like the competition is already starting. 

In the mud, that is.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump sent out the following message on Truth Social implying that DeSantis groomed underaged girls in the past:

The accusation of sexually grooming kids is bad enough but DeSantis being accused of it is rather stark, seeing that the Florida governor has exploited the narrative of  "child grooming" to make several legislatives moves against the state's LGBTQ community. Specifically was last year's "Don't Say Gay" law. To me it's comical that a distortion tactic which served DeSantis well in the past is now being used against him. 

While DeSantis hasn't commented on Trump's move, others on the right aren't so quiet. They are accusing Trump of "grooming."

This is  disgusting, vile, and a total blight on the integrity of our political system. It's shamefully disgusting and completely degrading.

And I hope it continues. These two jerks were made for each other.

We all know how vile Trump is and how subtle DeSantis tries to be. Maybe if we're lucky, they will wreck each other like the Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat in that poem I remember so well from my childhood.

Fl Gov Ron DeSantis

DeSantis appointees would oversee Disney’s theme parks under bill to revamp Reedy Creek​ - DeSantis is investing too much time in this fight with Disney. Combined with his attacks on the LGBTQ community, trans Floridians in general, higher education, and African-American studies, he may be making himself a hero to the conservative base, but he is spooking more people than he should. The base means nothing if you get everyone else united against you. Trump learned that the hard way. 

Ron DeSantis tries to punish venue that hosted Christmas drag show - Keep it up, my friend. Alienate more people that those who would support you.
