'They’ll drink the Kool-Aid for Trump but not for him': The View's verdict on DeSantis
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis described the Chinese Communist Party as America's

The co-hosts of "The View" couldn't help but mock Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) for his stuttering campaign launch on Twitter Spaces on Thursday's show.

Whoopi Goldberg began with an animated commentary: "This is my question. You knew there was a problem when they did that other thing, when they were trying to talk. You knew that there were problems, issues, with the servers. You knew there were problems. You put up big rockets that are blown up. You know, double-check. Make sure stuff works. Where's the common sense? Why didn't anybody double-check and see what your servers — if it was a server issue, see what it could take.

"I don't understand how you do this big announcement, and you haven't checked to see if capacity could be met."

Joy Behar said it's further proof that DeSantis' camp is not ready for prime time.

"You know, I think about him sometimes, when I'm lying in bed, I have nothing else to think about, and I think, you know, this guy is really — is a nonstarter here because he can't get past this base, because the MAGA base, they drank the Kool-Aid for Trump, not for him," she said.

"There's not enough Kool-Aid in the world. So, he can't get past the base. He can't attack Trump. If you want to go up against Trump, you must attack him, but he can't because the MAGA base will turn on him. It's a mess. Just get out of the race. You're not going to win. Nothing is going to happen for him. Nothing."

Former GOP White House communications strategist Alyssa Farah Griffin said that if she was Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), who announced his presidential run this week, she'd be very happy with DeSantis' failure.

"Sometimes a classic is speaking to real live, breathing human beings, speaking about what you're for, is the best in politics," she said. "A presidential announcement, people spend months planning them. They want to get everything to the 'T' right to make the individual look presidential. Like they're ready to be the leader of the free world."

"That was a mess. I mean, he came off like maybe a radio talk show host. Then you've got Elon chiming in. It was more like a commercial for Twitter than running the country."

She noted that a trap people fall into is that Twitter isn't "real life." It doesn't represent the views of the country. She also said that DeSantis didn't answer any questions from voters.
