Twitter Torches Trump For Laughably Calling Florida’s Rick Scott A ‘Great’ Governor

Scott

President Donald Trump praised Florida Governor Rick Scott, who is running for the U.S. Senate, as a “great” governor on Saturday morning in a rant that included an attack on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.

Both Gillum and Democratic incumbent Senator Bill Nelson are running in tight races against Republicans Scott and Ron DeSantis in Florida this year, with Gillum holding a slim lead while Nelson’s race is currently tied according to an average of the polls.

DeSantis’ racist ties and Scott’s disastrous governance have hindered their campaigns, so Trump decided to step in on Saturday with a tweet that did neither of them any favors:

Twitter users were quick to pounce on Trump’s praise of Scott by pointing out his failures, which include the red tide that has devastated the Florida coastline:

It should also be pointed out that calling Gillum “incompetent” could be interpreted as racist. Gillum is black, and conservatives have used his skin color to argue that he isn’t smart enough to be governor. Trump’s insult exposes his hypocrisy since he and his family have frequently accused Democrats of being uncivil.

Furthermore, Trump has been claiming that every Democrat will turn their state into the “next Venezuela” as if he himself isn’t turning the United States into a third world dictatorship. And let’s not forget that Republican led states lead the country in poverty and lack of education, not to mention lack of healthcare.

This tweet not only backfired on Trump, it backfired on Florida Republicans.
