Podcast host Joe Rogan said that former President Donald Trump’s attempts to brand Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis with a nickname would be unsuccessful because the governor’s “success in Florida is pretty unparalleled.”

Rogan highlighted a recent social media post from Trump saying that he does not spend time thinking about nicknames for DeSantis.

“All of the Fake News is reporting that I spend large amounts of my time coming up with a good ‘nickname’ for Ron DeSanctimonious, who is obviously going to give the presidential ‘thing’ a shot,” Trump claimed. “They are all 100% wrong; I don’t even think about it — A very unimportant subject to me!!!”

When Rogan’s guest noted that Trump was losing “losing his touch” in coming up with nicknames, Rogan responded that the task would be even harder for Trump to do with the Florida governor.

“Well, there’s not a good one that you can come up with for Ron,” Rogan said. “Because Ron, he’s too good with that base and his success in Florida is pretty unparalleled.”

Rogan, who has one of the most popular podcast in the world, appeals to a wide ranging audience of millions of listeners.

Rogan has spoken positively of DeSantis in the past when asked about potential GOP candidates for 2024.

“I think Ron DeSantis would work as a good president. I think, I mean, what he’s done for Florida has been admirable,” Rogan said last summer. “I feel like what he did for Florida, a lot of people gave him a lot of grief, but ultimately, he was correct. He was correct when it comes to like deaths. He was correct when it comes to protecting our vulnerable populations. He was correct in terms of distribution of monoclonal antibodies, and he was furious when the government tried to pull those, they were trying to pull very effective treatments.”
