Former President Donald Trump (R) took a shot at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) during a campaign event Saturday night in Pennsylvania, just days before election for Florida’s governorship.

Trump made the attack while campaigning in Pennsylvania and he used a questionable poll that was conducted months ago, just shortly after the FBI’s criminal investigation into the former president’s handling of government records was made public following the Bureau’s raid on Mar-a-Lago.

“Trump at 71, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10%,” Trump said as the crowd quieted.

There was very little reaction in the crowd to Trump’s attack on DeSantis.

Trump posted these numbers on his social media platform on September 16 and promoted them again this week on the account.

The reaction to Trump’s attack on DeSantis was overwhelmingly negative on the political Right, as many of the Left celebrated the infighting.

“DeSantis is an extremely effective conservative governor who has had real policy wins and real cultural wins,” Daily Wire host Matt Walsh tweeted. “Trump isn’t going to be able to take this one down with a dumb nickname. He better have more than that up his sleeve.”

“Also, nice job launching your public attack against the most popular conservative governor in America three days before the midterms when we’re all supposed to be showing a united front,” Walsh continued.
