Former President Donald Trump recently mocked the disastrous Twitter Spaces launch of Ron DeSantis’s bid for the White House as he made a bizarre joke about Kim Jong-un. Trump appeared to mock the size of DeSantis’ manhood and performance in the bedroom.
“Wow! The DeSanctus TWITTER launch is a DISASTER! His whole campaign will be a disaster. WATCH!” he wrote on Truth Social.
The Florida governor’s campaign launch descended into chaos as Twitter crashed immediately while he tried to present his candidacy to Elon Musk.
“Rob,” My Red Button is bigger, better, stronger, and is working (TRUTH!), yours does not! (per my conversation with Kim Jung Un, of North Korea, soon to become my friend!)” Mr Trump wrote on Truth Social.
The hashtag #DeSaster became one of Twitter’s top trending topics in the U.S. on Wednesday after Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R-FL) 2024 presidential campaign launch on the platform was plagued with technical difficulties.
#DeSaster trended alongside “DeSantis” and “Failure to Launch” after many Twitter users were unable to tune in to DeSantis’ much-hyped Twitter Spaces event with billionaire Elon Musk.
DeSantis technically announced his 2024 presidential campaign in a video just minutes before the Musk interview and the Twitter Spaces event was set to be DeSantis’ first campaign interview and a major moment of his launch.
Instead, the event was shut down after just 20 minutes due to continuous technical difficulties, which prevented many people from hearing what DeSantis had to say.
The issues were ridiculed on social media, including by President Joe Biden, who tweeted a link to his own campaign donation page along with the caption, “This link works.”
DeSantis’ Republican primary rival, former President Donald Trump, mocked DeSantis with a video comparing the governor’s shaky campaign launch to his own, while Fox News used the headline “AMATEUR HOUR” to describe DeSantis’ “disaster on Twitter.”
“DeSantis is making JEB! look high energy right now,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr.
The Florida governor’s campaign donation website was also ridiculed, with Rep. Maxwell Alejandro Frost (D-FL) calling it “one of the worst websites I’ve ever seen.”
