don’t shoot yourself in the foot, here. Stop it!
Trump has been uncharacteristically unwise re: DeSantis. Trump in the past hasn’t made such an obvious and egregious faux pas.
A lengthy clip of Trump’s rally flagged by Mediaite showed the former president’s attacks not landing well with the crowd, who grew mostly silent. “Compared to how Trump’s crowd normally reacts to his bits, the reaction to his mocking DeSantis was practically dead air,” the report said.
Trump attacked DeSantis response to the pandemic, said that DeSantis was “not good” on crime, and mocked him with nicknames. Trump’s attacks come as an analysis from Fox News this week found that Trump attacks DeSantis four times more than he attacks President Joe Biden. [emphasis added]
What on earth is up, here? C’mon, Donald, you have better instincts and judgment than this! Is there no one around you who can tell you the truth? Why are you walking into this dead-end?
Trump is a performer. And a performer knows very well when a performance falls flat with an audience! So he HAS to know this a loser of a strategy. So why does he keep doing it?
