Because we can’t have nice things, the 2024 election cycle is already well underway. And that means that all eyes are on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, widely considered to be a likely GOP presidential candidate — and a formidable one at that.

Donald Trump’s eyes are on DeSantis, too. That’s why he’s been spending so much time taking swipes at DeSantis. And the media can’t get enough of it.

It’s in the media’s best interest to keep the feud between Trump and DeSantis going, even though all the feuding seems to be coming only from Trump’s side. Ron DeSantis is too busy winning to obsess over what Trump is saying about him, so the media have to do what they can to lend a hand in stirring the pot.
