Ron DeSantis went viral for all the wrong reasons Monday in Japan. DeSantis’ eyes and face were shaking in an odd motion as he answered questions from reports about his failed poll numbers vs. Donald Trump. Many are comparing DeSantis’ viral moments in Japan to those of Hillary Clinton and Peter Strzok.
A reporter asked DeSantis, “Governor polls show you falling behind to Trump, any thoughts on that?” DeSantis, who was visibly shaken by the question, replied, “I am not a candidate. We will see if any of that changes.” As DeSantis answered the question, his eyes enlarged and his face started to shake uncontrollably.
Ron DeSantis acted extremely shaken when asked about his failing poll numbers vs. Trump. Also, why is the Governor of Florida in Japan? The DeSantis campaign has become a real clown show.

Donald Trump responded to DeSantis’ visit to Japan by writing on TruthSocial, “The “Consultants” are sending DeSanctus, and demanding he go immediately, on an emergency Round the World tour of U.S representative population countries, like South Korea, Japan, the United Kingdom, and Israel, in order to up his game and see if he can remove the stain from his failing campaign. Bad poll numbers! Perhaps he can, and perhaps he can’t, who really knows, but he’ll have plenty of time to think as he sits alone, on his taxpayer-funded airplane, riding it out and thinking, WHY???.”
Recent polling shows Donald J. Trump with a massive 25-point plus lead on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in national Republican primary polls.
