Republicans gasped this week when former President Donald Trump targeted potential 2024 GOP rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The Florida Republican is popular, and Trump decided to assign him the nickname Ron Desanctimonious. Conservatives couldn't figure out why Lumpy would do that just before the midterms. Most of us know that Trump is a petty, petulant, wannabe potentate with an unquenchable desire for attention and adoration.

Trump took to his failing Trump Social platform to attack DeSantis again, and it's wild. He unleashed ten posts in just one hour, with at least half of them zeroing in on the Florida Republican. I'm not going to copy and paste all of them. They're just so redundant. He paints a pretty sad picture of DeSantis, though, and makes him look like he saved the day and the Florida Governor owes him everything.

"NewsCorp, which is Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and the no longer great New York Post (bring back Col!), is all in for Governor Ron DeSanctimonious," he wrote. Trump then claims that Ronald came to him "in desperate shape in 2017—he was politically dead, losing in a landslide to a very good Agriculture Commissioner, Adam Putnam, who was loaded up with cash and great poll numbers. Ron had low approval, bad polls, and no money, but he said that if I would Endorse him, he could win."

Trump took credit for creating the rising star he now calls Ron Desanctimonious. The one-term President claims to have gone in to fix DeSantis's campaign, "which had completely fallen apart."

But when "Ron was going down ten thousand votes a day, along with now-Senator Rick Scott, I sent in the FBI and the U.S. Attorneys, and the ballot theft immediately ended, just prior to them running out of the votes necessary to win. I stopped his Election from being stolen."

"And now, Ron DeSanctimonious is playing games!" the ex-president wrote. 'The Fake News asks him if he's going to run if President Trump runs, and he says, "I'm only focused on the Governor's race; I'm not looking into the future."'

Trump then claimed that DeSantis was being disloyal to him. The twice-impeached President even brought up Jeb Bush in his long-winded rant.

Then he went after Pennsylvania, calling the state corrupt. Trump attacked the New York Post after the conservative publication ran a piece critical of the disgraced President.

His rant started with, "Now that midterms are over, and a success."

Then he attacked DeSantis.

He went after "Broken Old Crow Mitch McConnell."

He lashed out at CNN.

He claimed that he completed his ego wall along the Southern border.

He attacked the Biden administration.

In just one hour.

He is insane.

Get it now, Republicans?
