DeSantis was scheduled to discuss Twitter Spaces, the platform’s audio-only chat feature, with Twitter CEO Elon Musk after officially appearing in the GOP primary campaign on Wednesday. However, the debut was overshadowed by audio glitches and technical difficulties as hundreds of thousands of listeners tried to tune in.
Rival campaigns wasted no time in shedding light on DeSantis’ issues.
“Ron DeSantis’ botched campaign announcement is yet another example of why he’s just not ready for the job,” said Karoline Leavitt, spokeswoman for Make America Great Again Inc., a super PAC affiliated with the late President Trump, in a statement.
She said, “The stakes are too high and the fight to save America is too important to risk a recruit who is clearly unprepared for prime time.” President Trump is the experienced leader who will be ready to transform the country overnight. A,”
The former president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted “#DeSaster” as the rocket failed to lift off.
Asa Hutchinson (R), a former governor of Arkansas, took the opportunity to raise funds for his candidacy.
Hutchinson tweeted a donation link with the words “Just like my policies, this link works,” along with a pitch for his candidacy as a “consistent conservative candidate whose policies work every time.”
The former South Carolina governor’s presidential campaign kicked off in her home state of South Carolina in February, and campaign spokesperson Ken Farnaso tweeted a video of the occasion.
He tweeted, “So proud of @TeamHaley and our amazing campaign launch.”
Democrats also joined in the fun. A contribution website for his own re-election campaign was linked in Vice President Biden’s “This link works” tweet.
Ammar Moussa of the Democratic National Committee said in a statement that DeSantis’ introduction, which was riddled with issues, demonstrated that he “literally isn’t ready for prime time.”
