Pete Hegseth: Congressman, a tweet went out on Friday, I’m not sure if you saw it, it said “Congressman Ron DeSantis is a brilliant young leader, Yale and then Harvard Law, who would make a great Governor of Florida. He loves our country and is a true fighter.” Now previous to that, you had spent a lot of time with the President. A lot of reports that you want to run for Governor of Florida. Why don’t you break some news for us here.
Ron DeSantis: I can tell you that when that tweet went out, the amount of buzzing on my phone from calls and texts, I thought the phone was malfunctioning or there was something going on. When he tweets and he has 100 million people that are seeing that, it’s a really really big deal, so I really appreciate the kind words from the President.
He loves Florida, he’s been good for Florida, and I anticipate he’ll continue to do that. We’ll definitely come back on your show in the new year and be happy to break some news then.
Lisa Boothe: I guess we’ll have to wait then.
Leland Vittert: I gotta think about this. If you’re promising to break news, it’s almost as if you’re breaking some.
Lisa Both: Yeah, Leland’s on to something here.
Leland Vittert: This is the non-denial, denial. Sort of the non-acceptance, acceptance.
Ron DeSantis: Leland, you can use your deductive reasoning skills, there’s nothing wrong with that.
