Yesterday, alleged comedienne and noted political scholar Samantha Bee blessed the world with her razor-sharp analysis about former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. In a Twitter rant of Olbermann-like proportions, she frantically tweeted about a recent straw poll in which the governor edged out Trump as Republican voters’ choice for the 2024 presidential nomination.

“But before you celebrate Republicans turning away from Trump, take a look at all the ways Ron DeSantis could be…so much worse!” Bee wrote in a tweet that included a video of her playing a failed comic as she went on a tirade about DeSantis.

Here’s the thing, Gov. DeSantis is not the squishy establishment Republican type that has been thoroughly rejected by the conservative base. Unlike the Mitt Romneys, John McCains, and Cheneys, he is not willing to let himself be pushed around by the activist media and Democratic politicians.

Similar to Trump, DeSantis has a refreshingly pugnacious attitude when it comes to politics. Indeed, one of the traits that the former president possessed that endeared him to the base while simultaneously driving the left batty was his willingness to get in the dirt and brawl with his political opposition.

However, DeSantis’ strengths seem to lie more in what he doesn’t do than what he does do. Regardless of how one feels about Trump, they have to admit that while he was a proficient political pugilist, he often
