TRUMP'S WHEELCHAIR-OVER-THE-CLIFF ATTACK. On Tuesday morning, former President Donald Trump went on the attack, again, against Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). DeSantis, of course, has not revealed whether he is running for the Republican nomination for president in 2024, but nearly everything he has done in public lately points toward a run. The polls show DeSantis as Trump's only real competition in the race at this point. In a recent Fox News poll, Trump leads DeSantis 43% to 28%, with the next-highest candidates, Mike Pence and Nikki Haley, at 7% each.

So on Tuesday morning, Trump went after DeSantis. And the way he did it is worth noting. Here is what the former president wrote on his social media site Truth Social, with capitalization and punctuation from the original:

Great Poll numbers are springing forth for your favorite President, me, against Ron DeSanctus (& Biden). I guess people are finding out that he wanted to CUT SOCIAL SECURITY & RAISE THE MINIMUM AGE TO AT LEAST 70, at least 4 times. LIKEWISE WITH MEDICARE, WANTED BIG CUTS. HE IS A WHEELCHAIR OVER THE CLIFF KIND OF GUY, JUST LIKE HIS HERO, failed politician Paul Ryan, the Fox News ratings destroyer who led Mitt Romney's Presidential Campaign down the tubes. GLOBALIST'S ALL! WE WANT AMERICA FIRST!!!

What to make of that? First, give Trump points for the nickname game. A few months ago, he tried to label DeSantis "Ron DeSanctimonious," but it seemed overly long and clunky. It did not flow off the tongue. So now Trump has refined the nickname to "Ron DeSanctus," which is not only easier to say but also sounds kind of holy, which may or may not be what Trump intends.

But most of Trump's attack on DeSantis sounded very...Democratic................(Snip)
