Trump Pushing Nasty Rumor About DeSantis Grooming High Schoolers
President Trump took to social media on Tuesday to launch a new harsh attack against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. This came after the Republican recently won re-election in the state by an unprecedented margin of 19.4 points. Trump was trying to promote a post that alleged DeSantis had been grooming underage girls with alcohol, although two former female students said the parties in question occurred after they had graduated.
“Here is Ron DeSanctimonious grooming high school girls with alcohol as a teacher,” the post claimed.
Trump promoted the post on his social media channel, writing: “That’s not Ron, is it? He would never do such a thing!”
Trump, who was friends with Jeff Epstein, suggests DeSantis is a groomer.
He will lose to Biden at this rate. His campaign is fundamentally unserious and based on his insecurities.

Trump has consistently tried to label DeSantis as “Ron Desanctimonious” and has attempted to credit himself for the governor’s success. He also claimed on social media that DeSantis had done “far worse than many other Republican governors,” in terms of handling the pandemic, despite having previously praised him back in March 2020 as doing “exactly what he’s doing” and being a “great governor.” Maybe Trump had a change of heart after seeing the end result, or maybe he’s just playing politics in preparation for 2024. Either way…Trump is our man!
DeSantis has responded gracefully to all these attacks, stating that it is up to voters to decide how politicians are performing their jobs. And this was indeed evidenced through the results of the election. Not only did he win re-election by an overwhelming majority, but also secured more raw votes and nearly doubled the previous record of votes received in Florida’s history.
The backlash against DeSantis’ governing style seems widespread, but perhaps this is because he isn’t afraid to stand up for freedom from government control when it comes down to individuals’ lives during times of crisis such as what we recently experienced. His strong stances on issues like this have earned him both adoration and criticism from different people across all political spectrums.
Ultimately, it will be up to the people of Florida (and beyond) over time whether Ron DeSantis is the man people want for president in 2024…if he even runs.
