Video journalism site The Recount, founded by John Heilemann, floated the insane conspiracy theory that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is mimicking former President Donald Trump’s speech and mannerisms ahead of a potential 2024 run.

Watch for yourself (stick around until the end where they both — gasp — use a Sharpie to sign something):

This theory even made it onto “Morning Joe”:

Right? Because this “combination of hand gestures has never occurred in history”:

You could find these same mannerisms from anyone!

But, alas, their job was done and the video is now viral:

Gov. Ron DeSantis “is Trump’s afterbirth”:

The conspiracy grows!
