Megyn Kelly Gave Only Criteria for DeSantis to Consider Running in 2024
Megyn Kelly just shared with Dave Rubin the reasons why she believes Florida Governor Ron DeSantis won’t be the Republican presidential nominee in 2024 over former President Donald Trump.
Kelly declared that there are only two ways that DeSantis could replace Trump as the favorite candidate for the GOP’s presidential nominee in the 2024 election.
“Well, I just don’t think anybody else could win if Trump runs,” Kelly told BlazeTV personality, Dave Rubin.
Rubin asked if DeSantis had a chance if he got on a debate stage with Trump.
“No. No. I don’t even think that a little,” Kelly replied. “I think Trump sucks up all the energy in every room – no matter what. And even someone who’s skilled as a politician and smart policy-wise as DeSantis can’t overcome that – he can’t.”
Kelly said, “The only way DeSantis is going to become the Republican nominee is if Trump chooses not to run and endorses him or dies.”
Kelly, a former Fox News host said that if Trump declared that he wants to run again in 2024, his Make America Great Again supporters will not desert him, even for DeSantis.
She said that Trump supporters “like” DeSantis, but they believe that Trump was “screwed out of his first term” because of the Russiagate allegations. And she said that those supporters believe that Trump “deserves” a second term.
Kelly declared, “And so unless Trump gracefully and graciously says, ‘Get behind DeSantis,’ I wouldn’t put any chips on DeSantis at all.”
Rubin said that he believes Trump and DeSantis need to get together to iron out their difference and make a decision about who is the best candidate to beat the Democrats.
Rubin acknowledged that there is a “certain portion” of Trump supporters who would rather “burn everything down” if Trump isn’t the nominee in 2024.
Kelly replied, “But it’s a huge portion, Dave. Like the hardcore Trump faithful is unshakable. If forced to choose, they will choose Trump. So DeSantis can’t take him down.”
Kelly proclaimed, “DeSantis has got to either be crowned by Trump or he shouldn’t run.”
