In a recent post on Truth Social, former President Donald Trump shared his thoughts on the GOP primary debate hosted by NewsNation, labeling moderator Megyn Kelly as the “biggest loser” and declaring Vivek Ramaswamy the winner because he appreciates Trump. The post, dated Friday, saw Trump critiquing all the candidates except Ramaswamy.
Trump began by criticizing Ron DeSantis, using the nickname “Ron DeSanctimonious,” describing him as “terrible” with unfavorable facial movements and a cautious demeanor. He then turned his attention to Chris Christie, branding him “Sloppy” and claiming he was unfit both mentally and physically for the presidency. Trump accused Christie of suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) at unprecedented levels, dubbing him a “sick puppy” and highlighting his low poll numbers. He also took a swipe at Aida Hutchinson, asserting that both Christie and Hutchinson were “dead.”
Birdbrain, likely referring to a participant, was characterized as appearing different and lost, but Trump awarded her second place. The former president then crowned Vivek as the winner, emphasizing that Vivek’s admiration for him played a significant role in securing the victory.
Turning his attention to Megyn Kelly, Trump questioned what had happened to her, claiming she had lost whatever appeal she once had, which, according to Trump, wasn’t much. Trump concluded by stating, “Some things never change!”
“So many people are asking what I thought of history’s lowest rated ‘presidential’ debate, & how would I rate the players,” wrote Trump. “It’s so easy to be a critic, but who on this subject would be better than me.”
To begin with, I thought Ron DeSanctimonious was terrible, with his bobble head facial movements & his walking on eggs, but that Sloppy Chris Christie was worse. He’s not fit, mentally or physically, to be President plus, he suffers from TDS, or Trump Derangement Syndrome, at levels not seen before. In other words, he is a “sick puppy.” On top of it all, his poll numbers are just 1%, in a class with “Aida” Hutchinson. He’s dead, but so is Ron, whose weird bobbing head and fresh mouth, make his high heels look good – He’s walking on eggs! Birdbrain looked different & lost, but I give her second place. Vivek WINS because he thinks l’m great.
The history between Trump and Kelly has been tumultuous, particularly since the 2016 Republican primary debates when Kelly confronted Trump about his comments on women. The exchange led to ongoing tensions, with Trump frequently criticizing Kelly during the 2016 election. Despite a September interview and a temporary detente, Trump resumed his criticism of Kelly, accusing her of being “nasty.”
Following Wednesday’s debate, Kelly remarked that Trump seemed to have lost “multiple steps” mentally since 2016. However, she also expressed her intention to vote for him or any Republican nominee in the 2024 presidential election.
