As Ron DeSantis continues to toy with a possible presidential nomination, the Florida governor has come under increased scrutiny as political pundits and insiders weigh his chances in the Republican primary against Donald Trump.
In a lengthy new report on his presidential prospects, it appears DeSantis has several issues to overcome. Notably, the governor doesn’t appear to be great with social interactions, which is a big deal in the White House campaign. At fundraisers or VIP rooms, DeSantis is often described as standing alone in the corner and having a “distant public persona” thanks to his “basic skill struggles.” Not exactly strong points.
There’s also DeSantis’ eating habits, which are reportedly disgusting. About the Daily Beast:
The chatter about DeSantis’ public engagement has also surfaced behind unflattering stories about his social skills — particularly his tendency to gobble up food during meetings.
“He would sit in meetings and eat in front of people,” a former DeSantis employee told The Daily Beast, “always like a starving animal that had never eaten before … got shit everywhere.”
Steeped in DeSantis lore is an episode from four years ago: During a private plane trip from Tallahassee to Washington, D.C. in March 2019, DeSantis enjoyed a chocolate pudding dessert — by eating it with three of his fingers, according to two sources familiar with the incident.
Considering Trump is already throwing nicknames like “Meatball Ron” out here, the last thing DeSantis needs is a story about him being a garbage panda when it comes to food. However, it’s not like Trump has an excellent reputation when it comes to food. The former President famously puts ketchup on his steaks, and his diet can rightly be described as 900% McDonald’s based.
