Florida Governor Ron DeSantis laughed off criticisms in an interview this week from a few critics aligned with some of his political rivals who claim that he does not have enough of a personality to be the next President of the United States.
DeSantis made the remarks during an interview that aired Thursday evening with Piers Morgan on Fox Nation.
“One of the other criticisms that is used against you about your personality, probably because some people don’t know you very well, because those who do, who I’ve spoken to, tell a different story,” Morgan said.
“But you’re being depicted in some of the national media as very intense, quite boring, charisma devoid.”
DeSantis addressed the criticisms from some of the political opposition, saying that they are mad that he does not focus on being part of the social clubs that political elites operate in as he instead focuses on doing his job and then going home and being with his family.
“So here’s the thing, I think these are people who are in the political class, journalist class, politicians in, like, D.C. in particular, they get mad I don’t do the cocktail parties,” DeSantis said.
“I don’t like rubbing elbows with other people. I like doing my job and then spending time with my family. That’s just what I do.”
“A lot of the people that are criticizing, you know, they would say, ‘Oh, he doesn’t do well with donors. He doesn’t glad hand with them,’” he said.
“And yet I raise more money than any non-presidential candidate in the history of America! Are you kidding me?”
