Hot Mic Catches Post-Debate Panel Mocking Ron DeSantis
Man, it's not going well for any Republican with presidential aspirations, besides one.
Unless your name is Donald Trump.
Unfortunately for Ron DeSantis, his name is not Donald Trump.
Ron, of course, needs to keep up a positive persona to encourage his supporters to believe that all hope isn't lost, but let's be realistic here.
DeSantis might not even be able to claim the second-place title in the primary contest, and he is simply MILES away from catching up to Trump.
A year or so ago, it looked like that wouldn't be the case.
Just after the 2022 elections, Trump's stock was probably at one of its lowest points in recent memory.
He was privately feuding with his wife, and publicly feuding with Ron DeSantis, who at that time was arguably the most rapidly ascending Republican in America.
Fast forward from early winter 2022 to early winter 2023, and nothing could be further from the truth.
DeSantis is way behind Trump, and many Americans feel he's even less popular than Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy.
People are starting to notice.
A hot mic even recently picked up Megyn Kelly saying on a hot mic that Ron DeSantis was visibly upset during the last week's GOP debate, at least judging by his face.
Kelly thinks that DeSantis' chances are done, and that Florida's governor knows it.
"Look at that face. Looked like you shot his dog," Kelly can be heard saying as she played a clip of DeSantis hearing and responding to a question at the debate.
So @megynkelly and @RealClearNews were mocking Ron DeSantis’ physical appearance in the post-debate spin room. They didn’t know their mics were still on. (h/t @theredhombre) #GOPDebate pic.twitter.com/9Y65cCpxxr

Do you think that DeSantis (or any other Republican) has ANY hope of catching Trump, or should they all give up and start competing for the vice presidency right now?
