Trump’s Adviser Calls DeSantis a “Sad Little Man”

( – Former President Donald Trump may bring back his “DeSanctimonius” monicker back for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis after the latter expressed concerns regarding the process Trump was supposedly taking in his selection of who would become his running mate in the upcoming presidential election.

DeSantis reportedly made the comments on a call that included hundreds of donors, many of them who supported his failed bid to secure the Republican presidential nomination.

After news of the Florida governor’s comments came out, a number of people from Trump’s campaign came out all guns blazing. Chris LaCivita, who serves as an adviser for the Trump campaign, called DeSantis a “sad little man” whom he said will be remembered for the “chicken fingers and pudding cups” faux pas DeSantis committed during his campaign.

Karoline Leavitt, a spokesperson for the former commander-in-chief, said that given that DeSantis “failed miserably” in his campaign to oppose Trump, he “does not have a voice” in who Trump will appoint as “next vice president of the United States.” She also accused the Florida governor of throwing “cheap shots from afar” and called on him to instead work to “fire [President] Joe Biden and Make America Great Again.”

During the call, DeSantis said that he was concerned that the Trump camp was playing at “identity politics” in the process of VP selection, saying that it was a “mistake” that could result in a person “representing 10, 15% of the party being in the driver’s seat.” He also said that Trump should instead focus on picking the “best person for the job.”

DeSantis’ comments came out on the heels of news that he was among a list of prospective candidates Trump was looking at to tap as his running mate. Besides DeSantis, it included South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, as well as billionaire biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, who were also former rivals for the Republican presidential nomination. Also said to be under consideration were Florida Representative Byron Donalds, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, as well as former Democrat – now Independent – and former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard.
