Regarding Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is actively considering a run for the presidency in 2024, an unexpected and contentious accusation has surfaced. During a lunch visit to Tucker Carlson’s Florida home, DeSantis is accused of pushing and kicking one of Carlson’s four spaniels, according to a new book written by the controversial author Michael Wolff. This shocking disclosure has raised questions about DeSantis’s behavior and stoked denials of the allegations, adding to the intrigue surrounding his political career.
The Said Occurrence
In Wolff’s soon-to-be published book, “The Fall: The End of Fox News and the Murdoch Dynasty,” it is stated that the alleged event happened while Tucker Carlson was having lunch at his Boca Grande residence. According to reports, Carlson and his wife Susie hosted DeSantis and his spouse Casey. Carlson is well-known for his love of dogs, and the couple’s four spaniels frequently sleep on the same bed.
There is an excerpt from Wolff’s book that calls into question DeSantis’s behavior: “The Carlsons are dog owners who share their bed with their four spaniels, which are the offspring of previous spaniels they owned. DeSantis shoved the canine beneath the table. Did he kick the canine?”
Apart from this particular accusation, Wolff further stated that DeSantis and his spouse demonstrated a “complete incapacity to read the room” throughout the meal, with DeSantis supposedly controlling the discussion by enumerating his political achievements in a “unselfconscious” way.
Both people engaged seemed to have been impacted by the lunch’s aftermath. Tucker Carlson purportedly developed a bad impression of DeSantis and called him a “fascist.” Susie Carlson also conveyed her extreme dissatisfaction and wish to steer clear of such situations in the future, according to the author.
“Susie Carlson’s judgment was clear: she did not want to be anywhere near anybody like that ever again,” the passage from Wolff’s book states. Carlson considered DeSantis to be a “fascist.” A kettle calling a kettle blacker yet. Get rid of Ron DeSantis.”
Reaction from DeSantis
Andrew Romeo, the campaign spokesperson for DeSantis, has flatly refuted the accusations made in Wolff’s book. Romeo referred to the entire narrative as “absurd and false” and implied that some people will say anything to undermine DeSantis because they believe he threatens their preconceived notions.
Romeo stressed that DeSantis’s primary goal as president, should he win, will be to take on Washington elites from both political parties. “The DC elitists in both parties, whether under or over the table, are the one thing he will squarely kick,” the speaker declared, explaining why they are so frantically trying to fight back.
Ron DeSantis and Tucker Carlson had lunch in April, a few days before Carlson was abruptly fired from Fox News, the Rupert Murdoch-owned conservative news network. The reasons behind Carlson’s exit have attracted a lot of interest and conjecture.
