Former President Donald Trump broke cover Thursday evening and launched into a tantrum against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, describing his potential rival for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination as an “average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations.”

The 45th president, who was lampooned as “Trumpty Dumpty” on the front page of Thursday’s Post after his handpicked candidates struggled in the most crucial of Tuesday’s midterm elections, took credit for DeSantis’ rise to the Florida governorship and suggested that weather was the real reason for the 44-year-old’s popularity.

Governor Ron DeSanctimonious,” Trump said in a statement from his Save America PAC, reprising a nickname for DeSantis trialed at a Nov. 5 rally in Pennsylvania, “an average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations, who didn’t have to close up his State, but did, unlike other Republican Governors, whose overall numbers for a Republican, were just average—middle of the pack—including COVID, and who has the advantage of SUNSHINE, where people from badly run States up North would go no matter who the Governor was, just like I did!”
