A Trump-supporting candidate for Governor of Florida recently released a campaign ad which has starchy neoconservative crowd in a tizzy, meaning it must be awesome.
“Everyone knows my husband is endorsed by President Trump, but he’s also an amazing dad,” begins the ad narrated Ron DeSantis’ wife, Casey. “Ron loves playing with the kids.”
The ad then cuts to DeSantis and his son building a wall out of colored cardboard boxes.
“He reads stories,” she says as DeSantis is depicted reading Trump’s “The Art of the Deal” to one of his children.
“He’s teaching [daughter] Madison to talk,” she says as DeSantis points and reads aloud the words Make America Great Again to his daughter. “People say Ron is all Trump, but he is so much more.”
The ad is both creative and humorous, and obviously pro-Trump.
Of course, the #NeverTrump crowd like Noah Rothman of Commentary was indignant about it.
“Good lord,” he said. “If I were a Florida Republican, even an adamantly pro-Trump voter, I’d find this insulting. Any other issues facing the state beyond how
#MAGA you can be?”
Jim Swift of Weekly Standard, which is lead #NeverTrump clown Bill Kristol’s failing blog, said the ad has “Zero mentions of Florida-specific issues.”

Of course, that is not true.
The “conservative” brain trust seems to have forgotten that illegal immigration, clearly discussed in the ad, is a Florida-specific issue. Have Rothman or Swift ever been to Miami?
These people just cannot stand the President, or anyone who supports him.
