1 – Much-hyped Ron DeSantis presidential announcement a disaster on Twitter
FOX NEWS reports: Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign announcement was mired by repeated technical glitches on Twitter Wednesday evening, in a black eye for the social media platform.

The highly-anticipated announcement, set to be made via a conversation with Twitter CEO Elon Musk and tech entrepreneur David Sacks on Twitter’s “Spaces” feature, was delayed as it appeared the platform was overwhelmed. Twitter’s mobile app repeatedly crashed and users complained that they were unable to hear the broadcast.

Nearly 700,000 users logged in to hear the announcement roughly 20 minutes after it was launched. The event was then abruptly shut down without explanation.

“The servers are straining somewhat,” Musk was heard saying at one point.

“Failure to launch,” political commentator Kimberly Guilfoyle tweeted. “Trump 2024.”

President Biden tweeted a fundraising link captioned, “This link works.”

Katrina L: And Fox News had gleefully posted a “PROGRAMMING ALERT” that says, “Want to actually see and hear Ron DeSantis? Tune into Fox News at 8pm ET. Poor Elon…

2 – University of Minnesota backtracks on program that banned white students
NY Post reports: The University of Minnesota’s website is no longer promoting a summer research program that excludes white students, after a conservative nonprofit advocacy group filed a complaint with federal civil rights officials last week.

A link that previously directed “students of color and Native Americans” to apply for a “Multicultural Summer Research Opportunities Program” now leads users to a rebranded “Pathways to Graduate School: Summer Research Program.”

The requirements for the program are no longer race-based, with applicants instead needing to show a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 and “be a US citizen or permanent resident,” according to the site.

William Jacobson, a Cornell University law professor whose group The Equal Protection Project of the Legal Insurrection Foundation took legal action against the university, said the elimination of “racially exclusionary language is a good first step.”

“The university needs to issue a formal apology and implement changes to make sure the discrimination does not continue out of public view,” Jacobson said in a statement that called on the school to examine why its original program was “openly discriminating based on skin color.”

Katrina L: Too little, too late. White students should boycott the university.

3 – Gavin Newsom Accuses Target CEO of ‘Selling Out LGBTQ+ Community’ by Removing Pride Items from Satanist Designer
Breitbart reports: Far-Left California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) accused the CEO of Target of “selling out the LGBTQ+ community” for removing certain “pride” themed items associated with the satanist designer Abprallen after receiving backlash.

“CEO of Target Brian Cornell selling out the LGBTQ+ community to extremists is a real profile in courage. This isn’t just a couple stores in the South. There is a systematic attack on the gay community happening across the country,” Newsom claimed in a Tuesday social media post.

“Wake up America. This doesn’t stop here. You’re black? You’re Asian? You’re Jewish? You’re a woman? You’re next,” he added.

Katrina L: Shhhhhhhh!

DMLNewsApp reports: Yesterday we asked you whether Joe Biden’s age makes him too old to seek a return to high office in 2024, a topic of much discussion lately.

We asked: Do you believe there should be age limits for candidates running for the United States presidency?

Most answered yes, with varying ideas about just what the age should be.

See the results below.

Yes, the cut off should be 70. 42.12%

Yes, the cut off should be 75. 25.4%

Yes, the cut off should be 80. 17.25%

No, there should not be age limits. 10.16%

I’m not sure or have no strong opinion on the matter. 5.07%

  1. DML. How do you figure the Twitter DeSantis shut down was a disaster for DeSantis?? What is your base of fact behind that? The reason twitter servers failed is because so many people were paying attention to the next President …smarten up DML. DeSantis 2024 !!!!

  2. DeSantis is not ready to be President yet. Maybe in the future but he has a lot to learn yet. Don’t get me wrong I like him. It’s just my opinion. I live in Florida and I think he is doing a wonderful job as Governor but being a Governor isn’t the same as being The President.

    • So why Trump ? Is he going to take responsibility for Operation Warp Speed ? The deaths of millions due to HIS operation death shot as he loves to brag about ??? He is a death shot salesman from Mara Lago. Trump is a Narcissist…PERIOD Everything with him is I or Me. Idiot DeSantis 2024 !!!

  3. I think De Santis should finish out his job in Fl and run in 2028. I’m mad that he’s divided our party and isn’t loyal to Trump so I won’t be voting for him in 2024 or 2028. Trump is who we need back now. Trump will clean house and fix our country. Given who De Santis’s donors are he will just fall in line.

    • It’s ok to be loyal to Trump but Trump isn’t loyal to him. Sorry, loyalty works both ways. If TRUMP would shut the hell up and quit acting like a child with his name calling of opponents he’d do extremely well. He needs to quit talking about his last run and move on. He needs to talk about what he’s going to do to restore America, especially for new voters, young voters. He needs to
      Act like an adult. I loved his policies and still do. But enough. I want him to be strong and DeSantis is strong.

  4. Sad to start a division, this is not the time our country needs the Republican Party unified and concentrated to fix the electoral system. This is what the Democratic Party wants. Don’t think DeSantis is ready I like him and think he is a great governor but is not the same and right now our country needs someone with experience to get our country out of the hole we are right now.

  5. Trump is a death vaxx salesman from Mara Lago. When is he going to admit that he made a mistake with operation warp speed and stop selling this death vaccine that people are dying from ???
    He won’t because he is a narcissist!!!

    He is a true narcissist. Everything about Trump is me or I. There is no “I” in the word “Team”. Keep this in mind

    look how many people left the Trump administration while he was president. Nobody has ever left Ron DeSantis in his inner Circle in Florida. No one ! look it up. Do you research please. DeSantis 2024 !!!!

    • George or should I say Khan. Trump knows what’s he’s getting into unlike you his Narcissism does him well. I can take that because his business acumen gave me a great living while he was president. Unfortunately he was set up by Fauci and those drug companies full blast. Just why did fauci say trump will have a pandemic declared in 2015. Why was a Nancy and Fauci in Whuhan a couple of months before the virus was let loose? So him being set up by those garbage NWO freaks was his fault? We need him to put back the bills those hateful left garbage erased FJB ‘s 1 st day in office erased. We need his expertise going in again and republicans need to keep the White House in future years. DeSanta has a lot of growing u to do. He needs to learn foreign affairs. He lacks any experience there. Go to bed Khan and try to purge the poison from your brain.

  6. If Trump wins the primaries he gets my vote, but frankly, who ever wins the primary gets my vote. I just don’t think it will be DeSantis.

  7. I don’t like who is supporting DeSantis. RINO’S. Don’t fall for it. Our country needs Trump — MAGA all the way.

  8. Disturbing to read comments against Trump. So what he is an I person. He did do it. No team did it, where were you, he was pretty much on his own fighting the entire bunch, both sides. he stuck with it and never gave up. Call him what you like, he is a warrior and you may not like that about him , his ego serves him well.
    Trump 2023-2024-2025-2026. ( what is left of 2023 )
    I have high hopes here.
