Time released “The DeSantis Project” on Thursday. The article, which was a DeSantis puff piece, was written by Molly Ball. Ball previously wrote “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” an article featuring Deep State and corporate America bragging about their efforts to remove Trump from office.
In “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” Ball wrote with excitement about the conspiracy to use mail-in voting, drop boxes, and other methods to remove Trump from office, writing, “There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans.”
Ball’s article also referred to the 2020 BLM/ ANTIFA riots as a test run for what the Left, Woke Corporate America, and the Deep State would do if Trump remained in power after 2020. “The summer uprising had shown that people power could have a massive impact. Activists began preparing to reprise the demonstrations if Trump tried to steal the election,” the article read.
Now Molly Ball is writing puff pieces for Ron DeSantis.
Time’s “The DeSantis Project” cover is an awkward-looking generated AI image of Ron DeSantis peeling an Orange. Ball’s article begins with her describing DeSantis’ so-called wins; “His dominance is hard to overstate. From school-board meetings to the Walt Disney Corp.” Ball fails to bring up the fact that it’s widely known that DeSantis failed to strip Disney of its powers.
Ball’s DeSantis article described President Trump’s governing style as “Trumpian chaos.” Ball also quoted a DeSanits adviser who said, “Trump has claimed credit for DeSantis’ rise, but one former DeSantis adviser says the governor sees his success as foreordained.” the article read.
DeSantis has received criticism for alleging himself with Paul Ryan and Jeb Bush. Ball’s DeSantis puff piece will only lead to more questions about who Ron DeSantis really is.
