Super PAC Backing Trump Releases Ad Attacking DeSantis Involving Pudding


A Super PAC supporting former President Donald Trump released an ad criticizing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) using a claim about pudding.

The ad opens with a headline from The Telegraph stating, “Ron DeSantis ‘ate pudding with his fingers.'”

The narrator then says, “Ron DeSantis loves sticking his fingers where they don’t belong, and we’re not just talking about pudding.”

A man is seen eating out of a pudding cup with his fingers.

“DeSantis has his dirty fingers all over senior entitlements, like cutting Medicare, slashing Social Security, even raising our retirement age,” the narrator says.

He continues, “Tell Ron DeSantis to keep his pudding fingers off our money. Oh, and somebody get this man a spoon.”

The ad sparked several reactions on Twitter with columnist Joe Concha tweeting, “We’ve reached ludicrous speed with these ads…”

Did you find the ad bizarre?

Senior advisor at The Lincoln Project Jeff Timmer suggested Trump’s “aorta is his only opponent for the GOP nomination.”

Reporter Jacob Rubashkin wrote, “Can’t explain but something about this feels very much like the Lincoln Project-ization of the Trump campaign.”

Writer Albert Burneko said, “Mother of god.”

The ad comes days after the former president encouraged DeSantis to remain governor of Florida.

“Ron DeSantis is a young man who is not doing well against me in the polls, to put it mildly,” Trump wrote on Truth Social at the time.

He added, “I believe that if he decides to run for President, which will only hurt and somewhat divide the Republican Party, he will lose the cherished and massive MAGA vote, and never be able to successfully run for office again.”

Trump continued, “If he remains Governor, which is what Florida voters assumed, it would be a whole different story….JUST SAYIN’ – But who knows?”

Earlier this week, a FiveThirtyEight poll showed Trump raking in 49.3% of the national vote and DeSantis receiving 26.2%.
