The media fears Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis more than any other Republican.
They’ll do anything to try and tear them apart.
And jaws dropped when a former Trump advisor said this one RINO was trying to start a fight between him and Ron DeSantis.
After Ron DeSantis appeared on the “Ruthless” podcast and attacked Dr. Fauci for shutting down the country back in March 2020, the media hyped up a supposed clash between him and Donald Trump.
The corporate-controlled media attempted to spin DeSantis’ comment into an attack on Donald Trump since he was still President in March of 2020.
However, one Trump advisor says that Mitch McConnell is responsible for this phony media narrative.
Of course, McConnell despises Trump and blamed him for the events at the Capitol on January 6.
Josh Holmes, who is McConnell’s former Chief of Staff, is one of the co-hosts of the “Ruthless” podcast.
And a Trump advisor told NBC News that Holmes intentionally tried to drag DeSantis into a feud with Trump by asking him specific questions he believed would elicit a negative response.
“I like Josh. Josh is great. But he’s a wholly owned subsidiary of McConnell World. And there’s no way you can tell me that this was all a coincidence,” a Trump advisor told NBC News.
The Trump advisor also jabbed Governor DeSantis’ staff for playing along.
“Also, DeSantis and his staff knew what they were doing. How many Florida General Election voters are listening to the Ruthless podcast?” the Trump advisor added. “Now, that said, they might have been hoping for more out of Ron, because, let’s face it, he didn’t really criticize Trump. But they knew the media would instantly jump on it and wish-cast it into existence.”
During the “Ruthless” podcast, DeSantis directly stated that he had no issues with Donald Trump, and that it was only a media plot to try to damage their relationship ahead of the election.
Even though McConnell claims he would support Trump if he won the 2024 GOP nomination, everyone knows he is the last Republican Mitch McConnell wants to see as the nominee.
And according to Trump advisors, it looks like McConnell is making moves behind the scenes to try to damage Trump’s chances in 2024.
