Donald Trump is quite scared of Ron DeSantis. The Florida Governor, of course, is the biggest threat to the former president capturing the 2024 Republican nomination. While there have been rumblings that Trump is unhappy with DeSantis’ deference to him, the 45th president went on the attack this week.
And now Trump’s acolytes are also joining in. Roger Stone was attacking DeSantis long before Trump did. But the dirty trickster saves his harshest criticism for this weekend.
Stone posted on social media:
“Trump, sometimes President Trump hits it right on the nose. Ron DeSantis, Yale, Harvards fat boy can’t get out of his own way. Not smart. Not honest and not going to be president. An unknown congressman with a bad haircut and an ill-fitting suit until Donald Trump made him governor. I know where he was when he was missing. Ask Emerald Robinson.”

Around Christmastime, the Florida governor was not seen or heard from for nearly two weeks. His social media team made the issue worse by posting older photos of him. DeSantis’ wife, Casey, is currently being treated for breast cancer.
Emerald Robinson is a former Newsmax reporter. She was let go from her job for aggressively pushing misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine. Robinson tweeted to her followers, “Dear Christians: the vaccines contain a bioluminescent marker called LUCIFERASE so that you can be tracked. Read the last book of the New Testament to see how this ends.”
Any information coming from Stone has to be taken with a grain of salt, though. He famously built his career with underhanded actions.
