The leftist media in the United States have officially reached the point where they found an enemy they hate more than former President Donald Trump. Conservatives have pointed out that whoever the new media enemy is turns into the worst person ever and the old hated Republican is seen in retrospect as not that bad compared to the new enemy.
Bush was called evil and racist and compared to Hitler until John McCain & Mitt Romney ran for President. Then Bush was talked about favorably in comparison to the latter two. Like clockwork, Donald Trump appeared on the scene and suddenly McCain & Romney were the ideal Republicans.
Now it's happening again. On Sunday's edition of ABC's This Week, contributor and New York Times host Jane Coaston declared that Florida Republican governor and presidential candidate Ron DeSantis makes Trump "seem kind of chill."
"For instance," Coaston huffed, "he's been repeatedly hitting Donald Trump this week for being, like, comparatively centrist on LGBT issues. You've heard from Log Cabin Republicans, you’ve seen Caitlyn Jenner saying what’s going on here?"
DeSantis is apparently running to "appeal to people on 4Chan," according to the same leftist.
She ended her rant by helping DeSantis appeal to conservative voters. DeSantis is "the most right-wing, edge-lord person you have ever seen on the internet."
He even "make[s] Donald Trump seem kind of chill. Do you know how hard it is to make Donald Trump seem chill? He’s doing it," Coaston declared.
She hates DeSantis, but these attacks will only help him among conservative voters who don't want someone who the New York Times thinks is "kind of chill."
To paraphrase the great Rush Limbaugh: you will always know who the media and Democrats fear by who they are attacking.

MARTHA RADDATZ: Jane, Jane, who is Ron DeSantis trying to appeal to?
JANE COASTON: The internet? It really, it's interesting to me that this entire campaign from DeSantis, seems to be arguing, remember those things that you liked about Donald Trump? I'm him but I'm really mean also. His entire campaign seems aimed at an audience of people who are largely present on the internet. These so-called extremely online. And for instance, he's been repeatedly hitting Donald Trump this week for being, like, comparatively centrist on LGBT issues. You've heard from Log Cabin Republicans, you’ve seen Caitlyn Jenner saying what’s going on here? And obviously, I think that the DeSantis campaign has—-they have what gets me is he’s an actual governor of an actual state. He has a lot of things he can talk about, especially to an audience of Republicans that are tired of Trump. They are tired of just acrimony. They want to get things done.
And they have—here’s a governor of a state that is doing well. That he was more than victorious in his re-election campaign. And now, he's running to be, like—to appeal to people on 4Chan? What is this? It's a very strange campaign. When he could be talking about how he opened up Florida and defeated COVID—whatever. And instead, he's like, no. I am going to run as the most right-wing, edge-lord person you have ever seen on the internet and make Donald Trump seem kind of chill. Do you know how hard it is to make Donald Trump seem chill? He’s doing it!
