Scream all you like, 'cause we're all mad here
It'll last exactly as long as desantis doesn't announce his presidential intentions. Then he'll have to comment on it, and if he's ever surprised by the question: we might just get an unfiltered take from defascist. Which will just be hilarious.The other candidates aren't going to have a chance to make their own pitches though. Whenever they manage to get on TV the first thing they're going to be asked about is how they feel about the latest daily update in Trump's legal drama. They will be forced to say his name all the time.
DeSantis seems to be aware of this media trap and has been trying to avoid saying Trump's name, but I don't know how long that can last.
And the majority do not support the transphobia that the right have inexplicably made such a central focus:No, I agree with you entirely: but you also need to understand: you aren't getting the whole picture from just your little corner of hell. The stats bear it out: 70-75% of the US absolutely does not support any of the noise republicans are spouting. They want their reproductive rights, they want gun control, they want access to cheap medical care, and honestly don't care HOW the car goes vroom so long as it's cheap.
It is way earlier than you think it is.A few months ago I could have seen that, but Trump was gaining momentum even before all this. Desantis waited too long to announce (and still hasn't), and the other candidates are, um... who? The GOP field is very boring so far.
Why do people go to such extraordinary efforts to pretend Trump is smart? I've actually seen people claim that he has proven his skill at "manipulating the bankruptcy system"!
All he does is refuse to pay his bills and then let his lawyers handle the paperwork. Refusing to pay your bills isn't some omega-level business skill: it's literally what every drunken deadbeat in America does until the repo men show up for the car. The only difference is that the poor deadbeats don't have fancy lawyers.
