Ron DeSantis Is Best Option To Defeat Slimy Gavin Newsom: Tomi Lahren

Videos by OutKick

In case you’ve been living under a rock, let me help you out, Gavin Newsom is most definitely getting ready to run for president. 

You thought Joe was bad? You haven’t seen anything yet. 

It’s time for Final Thoughts. 

For months Gavin Newsom has been dropping hints he’s gonna run for president in 2024. 

It’s been like an Easter egg hunt but instead of Easter eggs, he’s been leaving us a trail of hair gel slime and the slick is getting thicker by the day. 

From the constant attacks on conservative red state governors like and especially – Governor Ron DeSantis – to his multiple national media appearances and even his little visit to the southern border, I mean my God we get it already, you’re running for office, Gavin. 

He might as well hang his hair dryer in the White House bathroom at this point, I’m sure Joe wouldn’t notice. 

Well now he’s launched his “Campaign for Democracy” tour – apparently he also wants to get the hell out of California, because he’s traveling to red states to “take on authoritarian leaders” he says are “directly attacking our freedoms,” couldn’t be more obvious. 

And by freedoms, he means he’s fighting for genital mutilation of minors, drag queens for kiddos and unfettered abortions. 

As for the other freedoms, well not so much

Jen Psaki: There was a pretty startling split screen. You had a thousand kids in Nashville out there protesting the lack of action on gun reform measures. While, you had Governor DeSantis signing a bill on permit-less carry behind closed doors. What did you make of that?

Gavin Newsom: Scared to death.

Jen Psaki: Who is he scared of?

Gavin Newsom: Scared of the people. 

Jen Psaki: Scared of the people in Florida?

Gavin Newsom: Yeah. That overwhelmingly oppose that position. I think the majority of NRA members, you know, probably oppose that position. No background checks, no back, no background, None? Really? I mean, no, no training? Why would we do that with weapons of war?

Jen Psaki: Which is what permit-less carry means.

Gavin Newsom:That’s extreme in the extreme.

The man is a tyrant and he’s run his own state into the ground – I know I used to live there. 

Imagine what he’d do to this country. 

He is going to run, folks. They will shove Joe off to the side I’d say by mid-summer and make it look like it was “his idea,” and then boom boom pow, Gavin will announce and he will be the nominee. 

And guess what, if we don’t play this really well and I mean like really well, he will win. 

And I know what you’re thinking, California is such a damn mess there’s no way average Americans would vote for him – he’s too extreme.

Wrong. The Democrat machine is so strong- and quite frankly it’s been birthed and raised in California- that they could probably put up a paper cup and have a decent shot at winning the general. Early voting, ballot harvesting, mega fundraising- all of it- the model started in California and Gavin, he knows it well. 

One person is suited to take on Newsom

So listen, I’m gonna be real honest with you now and it’s gonna piss some of you off but so be it..Ron DeSantis is the only one who can beat Gavin.

I love Trump but when 50% of Americans believe this latest indictment witch hunt against him is serious and with 50% already saying he should suspend his campaign- we aren’t gonna get enough Independents to win this time. 

It ain’t 2016 and it’s not even 2020, it’s way worse. Popularity and electability are two very different animals. 

The ONLY person who has a chance is Ron DeSantis. 

He’s got the most compelling case against Gavin Newsom. Look at how many people- AND businesses big and small- fled California for Florida in the last 3 years. 

The stark differences in their handling of COVID and freedom and masks and vaccines and taxes and regulations and crime- all of it bodes very well for Ron DeSantis and very bad for Gavin. 

Florida is a thriving paradise and California is an overpriced hellhole with an ocean view. 

Hell, even Gavin’s own in-laws fled to Florida!

So to all those out there on the conservative side who think it’s a good strategy to nose-dive DeSantis out of loyalty to Trump- you’re not seeing the bigger picture. 

You can scream MAGA from the mountain tops- hell you can tattoo it across your butt cheek for all I care- but all that gusto ain’t gonna do crap if we lose in 2024- again. 

I love Trump too, but this is just the place we are in and if you put your emotions aside, I think you know I’m right.

  1. Toni Lahren works for Clay Travis and he also hired her. She is not that great at what she does but when she is so out of touch that she promotes RDS for President who is a Bush/Ryan acolyte you know she is in the bag for Travis because he is a RDS man down to his socks. Get a clue!

    • She’s 100% right. Trump won’t win because no Democrats, and few Independents will vote for him. So throwing a hissy fit and refusing to support ‘Trump, and Trump only’ is just what the Democrats want. They want to run against Trump, it would be a wet dream for them.

    • Yeah and don’t hold your breath if you think Ronna is going to do anything about it. Personally I feel like we’ve already lost “swing states” Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Michigan now that they’re completely under Dem control. Ballots for everyone!

  2. DeSantis wouldn’t even be Governor of Florida if Trump hadn’t supported him in 2018. Trump voters will not vote for him and will sit on the sidelines after all of his recent Rhino moves. Newsom is a commie joke but like the previous person mentioned if the Dominion Machines and ballot harvesting is ramped up like it was in 2020 it won’t matter who is running. If DeSantis would have taken the high road and deferred to Trump he would have been set for 2028 no matter what the outcome. But he listened to Paul Ryan, Bush and Rove and you will see what that gets him IMO.

    • Completely disagree with you. Ron is no RINO. Yes, Trump put his support behind Ron in 2018 but that doesn’t mean Ron needs to put aside his aspirations because of that. And if Trump doesn’t emerge as the candidate we’re only hurting ourselves by refusing to vote for whoever emerges on the Repub side.

  3. Let me start with a disclaimer: I am a huge fan of President Trump. Voted for him twice and will, without question, vote for him again, should he be the nominee.

    That being said… It amazes me how, from time to time, the dogmatically devoted “Only Trump” crowd can be about as delusional as Democrats.

    Let me see if I have this right… According to a couple posters above:

    1. Trump gets all the credit for DeSantis winning the 2018 race by 0.4%. But DeSantis gets no credit for winning his re-election by 19.4%? Do you really believe his current popularity in Florida has nothing to do with how well he’s done as Governor? Clearly you don’t live in Florida.

    2. DeSantis is a Bush/Ryan RINO acolyte? You think he is a “big government”, progressive neo-Con? I don’t agree but if that’s what you’re convinced of, please share an example of even just one policy where DeSantis grew the size of government, gave himself more power, or made government more intrusive into peoples’ lives. I live in Florida and am curious to see what you know that I don’t.

    Have any of you Trump die-hards ever thought to ask anything along the lines of:
    “Why is the traditional media effectively helping the man they despise by attacking Trump’s opponents in the primary?” Or…
    “Why is the Democrat Governor of CA, out of nowhere, launching an all-out media assault campaign against Ron DeSantis, who has yet to even officially declare he’s running?”

    Maybe… just maybe… it’s it because the Democrats, and their media allies, WANT Trump to be the nominee?

    And why would they want that? Maybe because Trump drives turnout to vote AGAINST him in numbers never before seen in history.

    And… At the same time, they see the number of people MOVING TO Florida, Texas & Tennesse. They see the number of people LEAVING California, New York, Illinois, etc. They see how much DeSantis appeals to the independent, traditional-minded, apolitical voters who didn’t vote for Trump because they’re turned off by the chaos that would result should he win.

    That’s the whole purpose of the NY indictment! If they get an actual conviction, great! But what they really want is to drag the process out into next year in order to boost Trump among primary voters (who will inevitably rally around him), while ultimately damaging him among non-primary voters in the general election. They want Trump to be the nominee because they are convinced they will beat him. Heck, they already have!

    And, more importantly, they know they cannot beat DeSantis!

    You may not like Tommie (and Clay for hiring her), but if you can actually view what she wrote objectively, you’ll see she is absolutely correct!
