Listen: Ron DeSantis’ Presidential Launch Suffers Major Technical Issues
Ever since his 2024 campaign got off to a shaky start Wednesday night with his much-derided Twitter Spaces launch, Ron DeSantis has been touring the right-wing media, reminding voters of his record in Florida and making occasional comments about the boss. rival, former President Donald Trump.
In an interview, he said that, if elected president, he would consider pardons for those accused of the January 6 Capitol riots, and when asked if that would include Trump, he acknowledged that it would include everyone.
His comment was criticized not only by Democrats, but was also heavily rebuked by former Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, who tweeted: “Any candidate who says they will pardon the January 6 defendants is not qualified to be president.”
Meanwhile, in the Florida governor’s ongoing dispute with the Walt Disney Company, Disney has urged a federal court to reject a request by DeSantis to disqualify the judge overseeing the company’s lawsuit as amounting to political retaliation.
Disney filed its First Amendment lawsuit against the governor in April, saying he was punished for speaking out against Florida legislation that critics have dubbed “Don’t Say Gay.”
