Skip to comments.Newsom and DeSantis Give Each Other the Attention They Crave
Posted on 08/03/2023 3:16:05 PM PDT by Reno89519
Other than being large-state governors who have seen a future president in the bathroom mirror each day, California Democrat Gavin Newsom and Florida Republican Ron DeSantis don’t have a lot in common. Newsom has led a state government totally controlled by his party to create something of a progressive laboratory on issues ranging from climate change to abortion rights to protections for undocumented immigrants. DeSantis, of course, has made his alleged conversion of Florida into a cultural and regulatory paradise for reactionaries – where “woke goes to die” – the signature of his once-formidable, now flailing presidential bid.
Both these highly ambitious politicians seem perpetually starved for attention. Newsom really wants to run for president, but is blocked from that ambition by incumbent President Joe Biden and incumbent Vice President (and fellow Californian) Kamala Harris. DeSantis seems to be wilting in the shadow of Donald Trump’s endless headline-grabbing legal problems and antics on the campaign trail and social media.
So the two governors are scratching each other’s back, as Politico reports, with each other tentatively agreeing to debating each other on Fox News. “Newsom’s office had sent a formal request offer to Fox News last week with proposed debate dates of Nov. 8 or Nov. 10. That request called for [Sean] Hannity to serve as the sole moderator for a 90-minute forum on Fox News that would not include an in-studio audience and would air live.”

The one-on-one debate is a very smart move. It gives DeSantis a stage aside from Trump and gives Newsom a stage as he prepares to step in as Biden successor for 2024.
Attention they crave....
Old Dr.Wayne W. Dyer joke.
People are so self-pitying about sibling rivalries they even figure “I am an only child but if I had a sibling my parents would have loved them more than me.”
Haha. Are he and newsom going to run some sort of fantasy presidential election?
Old Gruesome may be Justin Turdo’s next love interest.
Do you think they’ll pleasure each other?
Campaigns are won by being creative. We will have to see how this plays out but it will be enlightening, they will get direct coverage without Trump. Trump will surely try to troll them, the boorish bully left outside. The biggest question is whether Hannity will shut up long enough to allow them both to talk.
Reality check is that when Biden and Trump are out of the campaign, DeSantis and Newsom are the likely leading candidates. Heirs in waiting if you will.
I hate debates.
Here is a preview:
I know you are but what am I?
That’s gotta be the Tongue in Cheek headline of the month .. lol !
You are out of your tiny mind.
The next day, starting with Morning Blow, the MSM will use Ronlim's debate clips to destroy Ronlim -- for free -- and pimp Gruesome as a flawed but possible replacement for the Zombie, versus President Trump in the general election.
The fact that you cannot see this Faux script in BOLD LETTERS, like a goddamn parade float on Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade -- with Ron's head taking his place at the top of the 4-story turkey float -- proves once and for all that Ron's inability to break out past 13% or wherever he is today, is precisely because his supporters are imbecilic.
I mean, you have to have a TBI or some sort of brain stem injury to not understand that Lachlan Murdoch took over FoxNews after the Fox sale, recently culminating in the firing of Chatsworth Osbourne Jr.
AAAAHAHAHAHAHAAH...just the tip!
Deep State got the POTATUS, didn’t it.
I have a brain injury. Educate me. What the heck are you talking about.
LOL! Sean Hannity is insufferable in this regard.
He has a particular talent at interrupting his guests right as they’re about to say something important or enlightening and then totally derailing the conversation.
I used to listen to his radio show but I found myself screaming, “STFU SEAN!!!” too often.
This isn't going to go the way it's playing out inside your head.
I’d rather watch LGBTQIA+USWNT disorder gals kicking a ball..
And I wouldn’t watch that even if they were in my yard..
There is NO difference between Newsom and DeSatanist, both are deep staters
Hannity is an ugly woman. Listening to him is like listening to a political radio Disney. What a phony he is, just like DeSlasher.
