Trump mocks 'Battle of Loserville' DeSantis-Newsom debate and claims Florida ... trends now
Former President Donald Trump mocked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' debate against California Gov. Gavin Newsom, dubbing it the 'Battle of Loserville,' as DeSantisworld sources say the governor's 2024 campaign is running out of steam.
After midnight on Truth Social Friday, Trump shared a dubbed 'Battle of Loserville' video, with moderator Sean Hannity asking DeSantis, 'Have you ever betrayed the greatest president who ever lived, President Donald J. Trump.'
Trump has long fumed that DeSantis shouldn't be running against him for the 2024 nomination because the then-president backed the aspiring Florida governor over another Republican in the 2018 GOP gubernatorial primary.
In the faked clip, Hannity also asks DeSantis, 'Are you a short insecure little man that likes to wear lifts inside your cowboy boots, yes or no answer please,' while faux Newsom outs the Florida governor for bringing along a stepstool.
The 55-second clip ends with DeSantis shrinking and then slinking offstage.

In reality, The Washington Post reported Friday on the troubles plaguing DeSantis' presidential campaign.
During Thursday night's debate with Newsom, the California governor declared that neither he nor DeSantis would be the 'nominee for our party in 2024.'
At one point Newsom told DeSantis, 'you're down 41 points in your home state.'
Beyond the paltry polls, DeSantis's chief rival for second place, former U.N. Amb. Nikki Haley, got the endorsement of the Koch network this week, a group that had previously been drawn to the Florida governor.
Senior campaign aides are feeling gloomy about their chances in the upcoming primary, which kicks off with the Iowa caucuses on January 15.
