VIP Max Boot says Ron DeSantis ‘more of a threat’ than Donald Trump

Max Boot’s latest Washington Post column takes aim at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, declaring him “more of a threat” than Donald Trump.

You see, DeSantis reminds Boot of Richard M. Nixon and not Trump:”a little reclusive, a bit of an odd duck … but he’s just incredibly disciplined”:

Boot’s conclusion:

In short, DeSantis is engaged in one of the most alarming assaults on free speech and academic freedom since the dark days of McCarthyism in the 1950s, when Nixon rose to power. His actions may not be as blatant as inciting a mob to attack Congress, but his record reveals a troubling pattern of authoritarianism and vindictiveness that would be extremely dangerous in the Oval Office.

Just because DeSantis is smarter than Trump doesn’t mean that he is any less dangerous. In fact, he might be an even bigger threat for that very reason.

Did a memo go out?

We suspect there will be more of these in the coming months:

In other words, DeSantis is worse than Hitler? Because that’s where this is going:

And it would be really nice if “True Conservative™ Mr. Boot” would tell us which Republican he’d support over Dems:

But, alas, this is what we’ve come to expect from his columns:

Maybe he went too far this time?

We expect that’s not the opinion of many on the Left who will do everything possible to kneecap DeSantis thinking Trump will be easier to beat in 2024.
