Donald Trump recently has been ramping up his attacks on Ron DeSantis ahead of a potential 2024 Republican primary showdown. We’re not going to lie, we figured it take the former president a least a few more months before he started accusing the Florida governor of pedophilia.

Trump has been doing just that on Tuesday, though, sharing a few posts on Truth Social purporting to show DeSantis “grooming high school girls with alcohol as a teacher.”

“That’s not Ron, is it?” Trump wrote, sarcastically. “He would never do such a thing!”


The New York Times reported last year on DeSantis’ time as a teacher at the Darlington School in northwest Georgia. The report notes that several students described DeSantis as “a frequent presence at parties” with seniors at the school. “As an 18-year-old, I remember thinking, ‘What are you doing here, dude?’” one former student told the Times.

The photo Trump shared on Tuesday was originally published in 2021 by a Democratic blog called The Hill Reporter, which noted that the girls in the photo were seniors when it was taken in 2002.

Trump’s line of attack comes as DeSantis seeks to establish himself as the Republican Party’s leading culture warrior, in part by stoking fear over pedophiles and groomers. The governor’s “Don’t Say Gay” law, which prohibits the discussion of gender identity in lower grades of Florida public schools, was widely marketed as an anti-groomer bill, the idea being that educators had been “grooming” young children for sex. DeSantis’ press secretary, Christina Pushaw, last year accused opponents of the then-bill of being groomers themselves, and right-wing activists quickly descended on Disney after the company came out against the legislation. DeSantis is still trying to punish Disney for doing so.

    The article originally appeared in Rolling Stone.

    Are you refuting that Trump tweeted those remarks?



  3. by Donna on February 9, 2023 9:24 am

    Excuse me - not Twitter; on Truth Social.

    Donna,
    In my thread yesterday, on this topic of DeSantis allegedly being a groomer, I noted that DeSantis came up with a response, but he doesn’t deny it. I posted the quote, but basically he said that he doesn’t spend his time bashing of the Republicans implying that Trump should not either. That advice I’m sure that will go unheeded as denigrating and belittling his opponents is Trump’s stock in trade..

    I've posted about Rolling Stone before. I follow Rolling Stone on Twitter...for the laughter.

    As you know, I watch the MAGA rallies. Then, I watch the reporting the next day. Both are amusing in their own way. I quickly learned that the Rolling Stone articles on MAGA rallies are in a class by themselves. MAGA stuff is interesting in the press. Fox and the NYP ignore MAGA unless they can't...like on J6. So, all of the reports are from the lefty SwampMedia. All the reporting was negative and elitist but, Rolling Stone has always been so deranged that it was amusing to me. It has gotten to the point that, on the morning after a rally, I go on line to search for Rolling Stone.

    When Rolling Stone appears on my Twitter feed, I always look...with anticipation. It's crazy!

    So, go ahead. Groove on progressive propaganda. It's OK by me.

    I knew you wouldn't answer my question.

    When I find fault with a news or opinion piece, I target the content, not the source, but that actually requires work.

    I think everyone here has been criticized for their source. Some things I won't use as sources. RS is one of those. If it's the only thing that agrees with me, I won't use it. To me, RS is the epitome of gonzo journalism.

    There's also plenty of stuff on the right I wouldn't use. I'm not sure if curt would allow me to use the Epoch times, but I've been watching them for awhile. They'll run a story. Then a few days later, it'll be on AP/UPI.
