DeSantis won’t like this one.
On Friday, a super PAC supporting former President Donald Trump released a new ad campaign attacking his potential opponent, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, over allegations regarding his purportedly uncivilized eating habits.
According to Newsmax, the new 30-second ad from MAGA Inc. displays a headline from The Telegraph, which reads “Ron DeSantis ‘ate pudding with his fingers,'” accompanied by footage of a man in a suit eating pudding with his fingers out of a cup.
“Ron DeSantis loves sticking his fingers where they don’t belong, and we’re not just talking about pudding,” the video says.
The narrator then said, “DeSantis has his dirty fingers all over senior entitlements, like cutting Medicare, slashing Social Security, even raising our retirement age. Tell Ron DeSantis to keep his pudding fingers off our money. Oh, and somebody get this man a spoon.”
The ad alludes to a report earlier this year where anonymous sources claimed that they saw DeSantis eating pudding with his fingers during a private flight in 2019.
MAGA Inc. has launched its “3 Years” campaign with a budget of approximately $3 million to air the ads across various news networks such as Fox News, CNN, and Newsmax. The campaign targets Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over his previous voting record to cut entitlements when he was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. The recent ad mocking DeSantis’ eating habits is part of this campaign.
