Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is offering to kick himself in the head if Donald Trump joins him and the other Republican presidential contenders on the debate stage next week.
«If Donald Trump can muster the balls to show up for the debate, I’ll put a boot on my head.» DeSantis told Newsmax’s Eric Bolling after weeks of speculation that he wears elevators on his boots to appear taller.
DeSantis also called it “a moment of substance.”
Shortly after, DeSantis’ national spokeswoman, Carly Atchison, got a little bold on social media with a non-substantive challenge to members of the Trump campaign.
«ATTENTION: Team Trump ‘men’, if you ever decide to be men, you and your boss can buy a couple of balls here,» he wrote on X, formerly Twitter, and linked to a site where you can buy golf balls with DeSantis’ name on them.
Two of the Trump campaign members tagged by Atchison quickly responded.
«Ron DeSantis is so broke he needs to sell his balls to strangers so he can pay the rent and keep the lights on,» wrote Steven Cheung.
“So the Desantis team finally admits that Trump has Desantis’ eggs in a box,” Alex Bruesewitz responded. «Acceptance is an important step!»
Trump amplified claims about DeSantis’ footwear last month by posting images on his Truth Social website of the Florida governor’s boots.
