Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis shot back at his former mentor, former President Donald Trump.
In an interview set to air on Fox Nation’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored” Thursday, DeSantis more directly addressed Trump’s attacks with jabs of his own.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was asked by Piers Morgan if he preferred to be called “Ron DeSanctimonious” or “Meatball Ron” by Trump in an interview.
DeSantis told Morgan he didn’t know how to spell the “desanctimonious” name.

“I don’t really know what it means, but I kind of like it. It’s long; it’s got a lot of vowels. We’ll go with that. That’s fine,” he said.
DeSantis then said, “You can call me whatever you want, just as long as you also call me a winner.”
On Wednesday, Trump fired back at DeSantis, saying, “Florida has been successful for many years, long before I put Ron there.”
“Now that Ron DeSanctimonious is finally admitting he’s in the Race by beginning to fight back, and now that his Polls have crashed so he has no other choice, let me explain the facts. He is, for a Republican, an average Governor, he got 1.2 million less Votes in Florida than me, he fought for massive cuts in Social Security and Medicare, and wanted Social Security minimum age to be raised to 70-years-old, or more,” Trump said on Wednesday.
“He is a disciple of Paul Ryan, and did whatever Ryan told him to do. Florida has been successful for many years, long before I put Ron there—It’s amazing what Ocean and Sunshine will do!” Trump said.
“Surprise, Ron was a big Lockdown Governor on the China Virus, sealing all beaches and everything else for an extended period of time, was Third Worst in the Nation for COVID-19 Deaths (losing 86,294 People), Third Worst for Total Number of Cases, at 7,516,906. Other Republican Governors did MUCH BETTER than Ron and, because I allowed them this “freedom,” never closed their States.
“Remember, I left that decision up to the Governors! For COVID Death Rates Per State, Ron, as Governor of Florida, did worse than New York. In Education, Florida ranks among the worst in the Country and on crime statistics, Florida ranked Third Worst in Murder, Third Worst in Rape, and Third Worst in Aggravated Assault. For 2022, Jacksonville was ranked as one of the Top 25 Major Crime Cities in the Country, with Tampa and Orlando not doing much better.

“On Education, Florida ranks #39 in Health & Safety in the Country, #50 in Affordability, and #30 in Education & Childcare, HARDLY GREATNESS THERE!
“The fact is, Ron is an average Governor, but the best by far in the Country in one category, Public Relations, where he easily ranks Number One—But it is all a Mirage, just look at the facts and figures, they don’t lie—And we don’t want Ron as our President!’ Trump concluded.
