Ted Nugent made an effort to stop the fight between former President Donald Trump and Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on his Nightly Nuge show, sending a direct message to Trump and DeSantis, “From my point of view, where my radar for truth, logic and common sense never rests, I believe that Ron DeSantis is a great conservative leader. I believe that President Donald Trump is a great conservative leader. I do not see a rift. I do not see a separation. I see that we the people need to unite on conservative values.
“I’ll be going down to Mar-a-Lago as a guest of President Trump receiving some gonzo, we-the-people, middle-finger-on-fire patriot award because I’ve dedicated the last 50 years of my life doing so. And while I’m in Florida with the greatest governor in America, in Florida with the greatest president in the history of America, I’m gonna see if I can reach out and recommend that the three of us get together.
“So, governor Ron DeSantis, congratulations and salute. President Donald Trump, we are with you. And I would recommend and invite both of you great, great patriots to sit down with Ted Nugent at your first convenient opportunity and maybe we can strategize to make sure that the conservative real Republican community of this country is united. I think we can do that.
“Ron? President Trump? I’m here for ya,” Ted said.
Trump recently insulted DeSantis on Truth Social, “Now that midterms are over, and a success…
NewsCorp, which is Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and the no longer great New York Post (bring back Col!), is all in for Governor Ron DeSanctimonious, an average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations, who didn’t have to close up his State, but did, unlike other Republican Governors, whose overall numbers for a Republican, were just average—middle of the pack—including COVID, and who has the advantage of SUNSHINE.”
“Ron came to me in desperate shape in 2017—he was politically dead, losing in a landslide …” Trump said in the statement. “Ron had low approval, bad polls, and no money, but he said that if I would Endorse him, he could win.”
“When I Endorsed him, it was as though, to use a bad term, a nuclear weapon went off,” he continued. “I also fixed his campaign, which had completely fallen apart.”
“And now, Ron DeSanctimonious is playing games!”
“This is just like 2015 and 2016, a Media Assault (Collusion!), when Fox News fought me to the end until I won, and then they couldn’t have been nicer or more supportive.”
