This is far more revealing than a policy.
It’s REALLY not.
If they gave them appropriate time before publishing a story it would be.
But proper media requests for comment now are an email sent to a low level staffer one hour before a story goes live.
This is a fluid situation. I wouldn’t expect comments until everything is known.
No it REALLY is. This is not a new case. These are not new accusations. Everyone knows Cohen is a lying scumbag trying to save his own ass.
These would-be candidates are more concerned with their chances of attaining higher office than they are with defending a man they know is innocent. The same man who also helped them in their own careers greatly.
These three are snakes and have revealed their true character.
True, but nothing has happened yet. Give it a few days. Nowhere in the article says that they 'declined'.
Yep. Everything that's happened so far is rumor and speculation.
Right now there is just Trump's word this is going to happen.
Shouldn't people wait to comment in case it doesn't happen?
Except by commenting, they might shine enough attention that it wouldn't happen.
Trump shamed them into sending buttigeg to East Palestine. Attention does matter. They might even try to flip it by then saying, Trump was making it up, or whatever.
If the DA is having meetings about security concerns related to indicting him, that shows they're serious about doing it.
Politicians are cowards. They'll wait to see what happens first and then issue a strongly worded statement that benefits themselves the most.
Stick a fork in them. They are done
i've been happy with DeSantis as governor and want him to remain in the position but this is a game changer for me
i will rethink my support for him as governor, and certainly as a 2028 presidential candidate, if he doesn't come out against this diabolical move by the left
just a mind boggling stupid play on his part
i'll give him another day to correct course but i'm honestly pretty shocked right now
You're the astroturfer on aTrump site shilling for DeSantis. Clown.
What if I told you if they take out Trump.
They will be next.
No need for Tim Scott to waste his time commenting on this. We already know how he feels. We have to let this “play out”.
DeSantis is making a huge error here. If he supported President Trump, kept Florida in good working condition while blue states implode, and then ran in '28, he'd be president.
His current strategy just leads to losing the '24 primary and being resented by the base for the remainder of his career
Go clock out, clown. Yeah "0% momentum" he only has a number one hit on iTunes this week and is crushing DeSantidl in the polls.
GtFO with your Reddit talking points.
That is huge story in itself.
What a bitter pill for President Trump - all the backstabbers waiting, hoping he will bleed out.
Going all the way back to Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III
Rino shills and Desantafags compensating and coping in the comments I see.
Muh Trump talked shit.
Muh Trump didn't endorse in 22. Muh Time for new leadership.
Can you shill twats tell chat gpt to come up with newer talking points? This is really boring.
You wouldn't expect a RINO to stand for anything would you?
That guy Vivek actually made an official statement against the Manhattan DA.
I think it is good to have viveck running because he isn't a politician so he does things like this. He also has a lot of ideas about things, so the other candidates can't just do the political talking in platitudes.
Haley also didn't respond to a series of questions about Ukraine that Tucker had sent to the candidates and potential entrants. Most were basically for trying to end it, and she would have been the only one who would justify the ongoing conflict and spending.
Haley hasn't seen a war she didn't support.
Sometimes its not what you do say that gets remembered, but what you don't.
I think what DeSantis fails to understand is that MAGA is more than a person, it’s a movement. MAGA supporters are OK with honesty and truth. He needs to stand up and say I don’t like Trump but I need to stand up on the same team and do my part for the country's sake.
Soros won’t let desantis comment on trump
Only tribal loyalty there.
This is part of destroying DeSantis for good. He best speak out and say something or he's done for good.
They are all complicit if they don't respond
DeSantis made the right move. Trump started shitting on him recently. Fine hate DeSantis cause he isn’t constantly blowing Trump. But he’s the guy that kept Florida free while every other governor folded to media and government pressure. I’m sure he isn’t perfect, but neither is Trump. They are both Patriots according to what I’ve seen. Unless DeSantis has don’t something recently I missed, but he was literally on TV the other day shitting on groomers in the classroom.
No, he did not keep Florida freer. South Dakota and a number of other states didn't lock down ever. Florida did. Texas did. Don't rewrite history for the sake of trying to shill for DeSantis.
He folded to media pressure until he realized he was wrong. Just like Texas did. Did the lockdowns go on for ages like in blue states? No, but they definitely happened in Florida and Texas both.
didn’t trump sign off on lockdowns ?
Who was on stage when they gave the first “two weeks to slow the spread “ speech
At some point if all these people thought it was a good idea, of course FL and TX played along.
So I guess if we are saying DeSantis is as bad as Trump for endorsing and enforcing lockdowns. Then I agree.
Trump gave that choice to the governors. Trump made a mistake, but Trump isn't backed by McConnell, Graham, and a bunch of other RINOs, nor is he backed by Soros like DeSantis is.
There's a big rumor in DC that Tim Scott will be picked for Trump's vp. 🤮
Too late now
The forum is majority boomers at this point. They’re easily told what to think, who to hate, and regurgitate the same nonsense talking points on both until the radio/tv man tells them who to hate next. When DeSantis becomes favorable again, they’ll pretend this never happened and that they were just “voicing normal concerns” at worst.
Actually well adjusted members of gen X and on don’t behave like this.
Fair point. But DeSantis could have vocalized his support earlier and wouldn't have become a target for the Trump campaign.
Even now, DeSantis could oppose the partisan-motivated prosecution without directly supporting Trump. But he's hedging his bets now and that just makes him look like an opportunist or a coward.
Self interest for a '28 run
Because he obviously doesn't want to be seen as a swamp/rino. He did a lot of good for Florida but Florida has been very corrupt since at least 2000, maybe before but I wasn't playing attention then. So how did Desantis get into power? That's the question we should be asking.
But didn't you just say that voting doesn't matter? I'm just cloudy on how he would have gotten in a position to clean things up without making some backroom deals. I like what he's done for Florida but Florida is such an important state, it makes me doubt his intentions if he's willing to leave Florida prematurely.
