Steve Schmidt has gone off the deep end making some outrageous and ‘totally not hyperbolic’ claims about Desantis. If you do not know who Steve Schmidt is, he was a founder of The Lincoln Project and we think that says pretty much everything you need to know.
I’m going to say something. There is no hyperbole attached to it. I mean it. Every word. Anyone who thinks Ron Desantis wouldn’t kill his political opponents given the chance doesn’t understand who he is. He just proved it. The refusal to see that is stupid. Recklessly stupid

OK, well, first of all, we do not think he knows or understands the definition of hyperbole. We are pretty sure if there was a textbook to be written about hyperbole and its use on Twitter that tweet should be the example they use.
hy·per·bo·le /hīˈpərbəlē/ noun
Definition: exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.
Narrator: there was, in fact, a LOT of hyperbole attached to it. https://t.co/RkaU6mN5G7

We were NOT the only people who thought Schmidt was confused, did not understand the definition, or had just lost it completely.
Then maybe don’t mess with him.
That is, if you are serious and not just toobining. https://t.co/qPJ96qpe0C

Right? We never understood how people behave this way, if a person is indeed a killer, why are you provoking them?
It reminds us of that scene in BATMAN The Dark Night: ‘Let me get this straight…’
I'm going to say something. There is no hyperbole attached to it. I mean it. Every word.

Yup. No hyperbole was found. You guys should start prepping for FIRE SQUIDS ASAP.

Right? If what they said about Trump was not enough just wait and see what they throw at DeSantis. Even when the calmest milquetoast candidate of all time was running (Mitt Romney) they said he was going to put black people back in chains.
Had @SteveSchmidtSES given himself a day to react in an emotionally and unhinged manner, he might have been spared the embarrassment of this tweet. Unfortunately, given MV bussed out the illegals less than 24 hrs later means they acted no different than DeSantis. https://t.co/xGrO77GtJx

Great point. Are Martha’s Vineyard residents now evil with no heart? If we follow all the same rules Steve has given Desantis, then yes, yes they are.
The implosion is complete. https://t.co/oDUfik7hLV

Confusing Desantis with the Clintons??? https://t.co/ykfn7JaRZE
— Lisa S. Belanger, J.D. in Karma (@TPCLJ) September 19, 2022
DeSantis flying people who wanted to go to Boston to Martha's Vineyard, like 2 hours away, proves he'd murder people like Killary. Amazing. I can't believe all of Steve's clients lost their elections. https://t.co/sZklPCbs9H

With those 2 tweets, we at Twitchy have to say we are not supporting the idea that the Clintons have had people killed. We are just pointing out there is a persistent rumor to that effect and that the Left often projects what they really think or what they really do onto others. And you all can take from that what you like.

Nah, Mean tweets are ok as long as the mean part is directed at conservatives!
Apparently TDS has mutated into DDS. https://t.co/3Z3Dy5FDDF

Yup. They still want to destroy Trump, we all know this, but they think DeSantis might have some of the Trump spunk without all of the baggage and they want to tear him down fast.
Stay alert and keep a lookout for DDS spreading fast throughout the Twitterverse!
