Even if you think you’re not familiar with The Breakfast Club, you are. It’s the radio show on which candidate Joe Biden said in 2020, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Biden’s campaign did a lot of backpedaling on that one, even suggesting that host Charlamagne tha God was “being a wise guy” and was at fault.
As Twitchy reported, Ron DeSantis had some glitches early on in his campaign announcement on Twitter Spaces, with liberals and NeverTrumpers delighting in DeSantis “melting Twitter’s servers.”
They say you can judge a campaign by its first few minutes.

Twitter quickly scaled up to meet the demand (Dana Loesch took a screenshot showing 623,000 signed on and waiting for the announcement), and DeSantis did an hour-long Q&A session that covered a lot of topics.
The Breakfast Club is certainly no conservative outlet, and they’re calling out the ones clowning on DeSantis for choosing Twitter to launch his campaign.
Even The Breakfast Club, which is very left wing, recognizes the genius in DeSantis doing the Twitter Space and how much more effective he is than Trump.

DeSantis should really reach out to the Breakfast Club and see if he could go on the show. He won't win every point against a guy like Charlamagne but you have to show up.

I think that would be a great idea. Go there, in-studio, face to face.

Biden did and then spent a week cleaning up the mess. “You ain’t black.”
Very smart, astute analysis. We need to draw their brains and energy to our side of politics. That would be a huge win for all Americans.

That was some of the best analysis I've heard, from either side.
He won me over in that announcement, even though I disagree on some of his policy that he passed in Florida.

Nailed it. Better than any of our 'experts' in the mainstream media. She gets it. They all got it.

3.4 million views as of yesterday. Not sure what it's at today. That's enough to get people talking and create a buzz. And sure enough, people are talking about it on TV today and discussing how he performed etc..

People that aren’t approaching this from an emotional standpoint, left or right, know that DeSantis is an effective and ruthless operator who is incredibly intelligent. Trump folks know it, Biden folks know it. Lib media also knows it. All of these entities are obsessed with him.

If they stopped seeing his policy through propaganda filters and truly understood what books are being banned and why and the difference between African American studies and CRT and just really listened I think they would vote for RDS too. The woke mind virus stands in the way.

DeSantis certainly showed a grasp of the issues in his Q&A … he’s definitely thinking on a national level. Probably no one on The Breakfast Club will vote for DeSantis, but they know enough to take him seriously and not laugh off his campaign launch as a “glitch.”
