The campaign’s embrace of Twitter didn’t start well.

Ron DeSantis, the combative 44-year-old governor of Florida who has championed conservative causes and thrown a yearslong flurry of punches at America’s left, began his campaign for president on Wednesday, giving Donald J. Trump the most formidable Republican rival he has faced since his ascent in 2016.

But his vaunted launch on a live broadcast over Twitter was an inauspicious debut to say the least. The social media site’s servers were apparently overloaded, crashing repeatedly. Twenty minutes into the “broadcast,” Mr. DeSantis had yet to be heard from, though Twitter personnel could be heard lamenting the situation.

    DeSantis is a moron.


  2. by Curt_Anderson on May 24, 2023 6:48 pm
    DeSantis has an impressive Ivy League education so he’s not a moron. Let’s just say he makes bad choices and bad decisions. He is animated by a bad ideology which gotten him into trouble with Disney and now today’s fiasco. He is a founding member of the freedom caucus in Congress. That’s when he was promoting a federal sales tax, which even Donald Trump recognizes was a bad idea.

    "DeSantis is a moron." po

    The anti-TQ LGB crowd disagrees! Baha


  4. by Curt_Anderson on May 25, 2023 8:09 am
    HtS, OD,
    As our resident Ron DeSantis fans what did you think of his presidential announcement and launch? Did you listen to the whole thing? What were your favorite parts?


  5. by HatetheSwamp on May 25, 2023 8:25 am

    OD's for Haley.


  6. by Curt_Anderson on May 25, 2023 8:44 am
    Maybe. But that does not negate the fact that OD is a fan of Ron DeSantis, nor does it answer my question if either of you to listened to Ron DeSantis’ announcement


  7. by Ponderer on May 25, 2023 8:59 am

    "The anti-TQ LGB crowd disagrees!" -Hate

    Simply more evidence supporting my opinion about them.


    DeSanitis is gonna be eaten alive on a national stage. He's gonna be a MAGA Republican Dukakis. He doesn't appear to even know what he's doing the vast majority of the time.

    (A direct symptom of moronism.)


  8. by HatetheSwamp on May 25, 2023 9:07 am

    Despite po's slander. OD's anti-Trump.


  9. by Ponderer on May 25, 2023 9:14 am

    Oh is that gonna be your new word now?

    Your Golden God has been found liable for publicly defaming and lying about a woman he sexually assaulted, so now you're gonna go around accusing everyone you disagree with of "slander"...?

    MAGA Republican's predictability is getting to be rather boring at this point.


  10. by HatetheSwamp on May 25, 2023 11:23 am

    DeSanitis is gonna be eaten alive on a national stage. He's gonna be a MAGA Republican Dukakis.

    Um. Dukakis won the nomination and only lost to Bush 1 because GHW was pretending to be Reagan 2.0 who was huuuuuuuuugely popular. (See link)

    I'll take DeSantis as a GOP Dukakis. "That feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" ain't Reagan.

    curt- forgive me for not answering you immediately, but I was grandparenting this week and in the middle of a renovation. I also found your thread stupid in the fact that you forgot he "broke" twitter with the numbers in it. I also find you too stuck in your dogma for any type of discussion. Which is a shame.

    "But that does not negate the fact that OD is a fan of Ron DeSantis, nor does it answer my question if either of you to listened to Ron DeSantis’ announcement"

    I did not because I already know his platform. I've been living in it. I also know the truth vs what the sheep believe (by actually reading the laws, etc). Two different things. You (et al) are not going to negotiate on any part of what you've been told, so why should I sit at the table.


  12. by HatetheSwamp on May 25, 2023 4:21 pm

    Yeah. Curt, I didn't listen in either. Nor have I been interested in anyone else's. I didn't even watch the CNN Trump Infomercial.

    I think that what the DeSantis campaign did was a blunder but three months ahead of the first debate and, what?, eight months before the first caucus and primary it's nbd.



  13. by Curt_Anderson on May 25, 2023 4:35 pm
    OD,
    You didn't watch Ron DeSaster's announcement DeBacle. HtS didn't either. That's a tell. HtS constantly links to and watches Trump's rallies even though HtS has heard it all before. Yet he didn't go to hear what DeSaster had to say in his big announcement.

    Even most of Ron's super fans couldn't and didn't figure out how to get onto Twitter Space---whatever that is. Those that get there, quickly "broke" it. Apparently they only broke the page on Twitter that was hosting the presidential announcement.

    According to Fortune magazine, "Elon Musk's Twitter is so fragile it crashed from just 420,000 people trying to watch Ron DeSantis launch his campaign."

    You probably saw the headlines about the DeSantis presidential launch. They were not kind. It didn't help him make a case for his competence.

  14. by HatetheSwamp on May 25, 2023 4:46 pm

    Be accurate, Curt. I watch Trump rallies. But, I normally watch only a few minutes of the speech at most. I'm most interested in the, well, mommies and daddies and nannas and pappaps who show up and what they're saying.

    I did follow that gay Guy you've never heard's of comments on Twitter. Gay Guy's too clever to say he supports DeSantis but it seems clear to me that he does. He was miffed by the ineptitude of the presentation.


  15. by Ponderer on May 25, 2023 5:31 pm
    "I'll take DeSantis as a GOP Dukakis." -Hate

    And I'll take Biden as a Dem Bush 1 who actually got a second term.


  16. by Curt_Anderson on May 25, 2023 5:42 pm
    I think you meant Biden as a Dem Bush 2. Junior got a second term.


  17. by Ponderer on May 25, 2023 6:11 pm

    Wow. So Musk lays off thousands of workers in the company and then he can't manage to even use the mess he made out of the platform for his great big glorified historical event.

    Gee, if DeSaster actually wins the White House, maybe he can make Musk his Secretary of Commerce...? Or..... Energy...?


    *GASP!*


    VP!


  18. by Ponderer on May 25, 2023 6:12 pm

    But it was Dukakis vs. Bush 1.

    If HtS is to be believed.


  19. by HatetheSwamp on May 25, 2023 6:24 pm

    Bush 1 v. Dukakis

    curt- It's no tell for me. I've been living in DeSantisland. I know REALLY what he's done without all the lying bullsht from the media (which I've read also, just to counter the collective "you"). I know he broke twitter. That says something. And he's been places trumpster hasn't been campaigning. That's why you sheep hate him so much. He's taken blacks away from the dims, as well as Latinos (see, they're not a f*ing stupid as you think they are). He went from a 50:50 congress to a supermajority in both houses. Y'all are scared right now. Otherwise the sheep and the media wouldn't be pissing themselves over him.

    I don't even know when the trumpster is speaking. nor do I care. I also haven't heard any of Nikki Haley's stuff. Although I'm more convinced she's a VP pick. My guess is a VP pick with trumpster. If he gets it. Then I'll have to vote for him because of the alternatives.

    I also don't watch any of pedojoe's stuff. I usually just end up puking in the middle of that. He can't even get his facts straight. Last week, he said twice that his son died in Afghanistan. Symptoms of dementia. Right guy, Afghanistan on his mind, he combines the two. It wouldn't be so bad if he didn't double-down. Honestly, he's not helping his game at all. I know you're a rabid cheerleader for the swamp, but that sickens me. Face it. You're not voting for pedojoe. You're voting for his handlers.

    The alternative pedojoe again. That said, the GOP in the house may shame DOJ in to either answering a subpoena (doubtful) or calling them to testify in open hearings. Treasury said they were going to comply with the house subpoenas, then reneged on that and then gave congress the finger. So we're under obomber again (sigh). Which means we'll use case law that DOJ won't have a chance to refuse charging criminally without admitting they're under the swamp's control. They may use pedojoe as the sacrificial lamb to keep their power.

    "Last week, he said twice that his son died in Afghanistan. Symptoms of dementia. Right guy, Afghanistan on his mind, he combines the two." --OO

    OD,
    Who are YOU accusing of having dementia?

    Biden didn't say Afghanistan, he said Iraq. Joe Biden said his son "lost his life in Iraq", a clear reference to the president's long-held belief that toxic burn pits led to the Beau Biden passing away from brain cancer at the age of 46. Joe Biden is painfully aware that his son died at Walter Reed.


  22. by oldedude on May 26, 2023 8:00 pm
    I don't think he is "aware" of that. AND there is a lot of difference between his son dying in Iraq, and his son dying of issues (that you don't give a fuk about) at Walter Reed.
