New Event Horizon: Conor Friersdorf Channels His Inner Chris Cillizza

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) email thingie breathlessly reports the worst take today (emphasis mine):

— If Never-Trumpers want to stop the former president in 2024, they should get in line behind RON DESANTIS, writes The Atlantic’s Conor Friersdorf. The Florida governor “can boast both conventional political achievements and credibility on the Trumpist right,” Friersdorf writes, while also helping the party avoid some of the pitfalls that led to Trump’s nomination. “By failing to unite around any candidate in 2016, Trump’s opponents all but guaranteed that the celebrity businessman would coast to the nomination. In 2024, DeSantis may not be the president that Never Trumpers would choose. He’s too Trumpy for their taste. But their options are limited, and if beating Trump is their highest priority, as I think it should be, DeSantis may be their best bet.”

Electing Ron DeSantis to fight Trumpism is the worst hot take I’ve read. I may have to slip something into my first cup of coffee.

    That’s pretty much the equivalent of backing Emperor Palpatine in order to defeat the Sith.

    President Deathsantis has a catchy ring to it, particularly today because…Halloween. Not sure why anyone would vote for him, having totally failed in keeping Floridians alive and healthy, but then insanity sometimes repeats itself. Just ask TFG who was last seen chop chopping with the Atlanta fans at last night’s game…

    “Slip something into my coffee”. Too late, and it didn’t help with their idea at all.
