Ron DeSantis pudding story may end his 2024 presidential bid –

We’ve been fooled before by parodies, and when we realize it, we post a correction. It’s easy to fall for some parodies because reality has become so bizarre. So when we saw this tweet, we thought it had to be New York magazine having some fun with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis after The Daily Beast’s scoop that he once ate pudding with three fingers. But Margaret Hartmann observes that “the only thing most people remember about Senator Amy Klobuchar’s 2020 presidential bid is that she was accused of eating salad with a comb.”

Hartmann writes:

At first glance, this may not seem like such a big deal. Pudding is delicious. A finger makes an acceptable utensil in an emergency. And who among us hasn’t tried an odd food maneuver when trapped on a plane? The Daily Beast doesn’t even focus primarily on the pudding incident; it appears at the end of a piece about how the Florida governor “struggles with basic social skills” required of a politician. But I’m calling it now: This story will follow DeSantis like pudding sticks to fingers.

Even worse for DeSantis is how funny the word “pudding” sounds. And it’s a dessert for children. The Florida governor wants to look masculine and tough, and there are already reports that Donald Trump plans to mock his primary rival’s height and weight. While I personally support people of all ages, body types, and gender expressions consuming a deliciously chocolatey treat, it’s a bad look for a GOP presidential candidate.

When we hear the word pudding, the first thing that comes to our mind is President Joe Biden, either enjoying his dessert or having pudding for brains.

If this was supposed to be funny, no one’s laughing. Well, they’re laughing at Hartmann. This is beyond stupid.
