A new hit against potential 2024 presidential candidate Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., revealed Thursday was the unusual claim that the governor once ate chocolate pudding with three fingers.

The article by The Daily Beast on DeSantis’ “aloof” personality was said to have been sourced from the accounts of anonymous former staffers and GOP operatives. Reporters Jake Lahut and Zachary Petrizzo said that DeSantis “struggles with basic social skills,” displaying “an aversion to small talk” and “general pleasantries” which “make him difficult” during unplanned interactions.

Among several claims about his personal habits, one assertion the article focused on was DeSantis’ table manners.

They wrote, “The chatter over DeSantis’ public engagement has also surfaced past unflattering stories about his social skills—particularly, his propensity to devour food during meetings.”

“Enshrined in DeSantis lore is an episode from four years ago: During a private plane trip from Tallahassee to Washington, D.C., in March of 2019, DeSantis enjoyed a chocolate pudding dessert—by eating it with three of his fingers, according to two sources familiar with the incident,” the reporters continued.

According to the Daily Beast, an alleged former staffer said, “He would sit in meetings and eat in front of people…always like a starving animal who has never eaten before… getting s— everywhere.”

Daily Beast reporter Jake Lahut tweeted Thursday, “New — Ex-DeSantis staffers and those involved in planning his book tour/pre-campaign events describe long standing issues over his soft skills coming to the fore as he hits the road. Example: A 2019 flight from TLH to DC where he ate pudding w/ 3 fingers. A feedback loop has begun forming around DeSantis, with early primary state campaign venues trying to cater to his aversion to the press and unpredictable interactions with the public. But they still don’t know exactly what he wants.”

Author Adam B. Coleman tweeted, “DeSantis ate pudding…with 3 fingers?! What next… DeSantis ate salad and didn’t use a salad fork?! You really got him this time Daily Beast. *Slow Clap*”

Former Obama staffer Tommy Vietor remarked, “There is nothing wrong with this. Let the man eat his pudding.”

Journalist Ian Miles Cheong said, “DeSantis is done. He ate pudding with 3 fingers. This is the worst thing they could come up with.”

Reporter Chris Nelson commented, “Is this stuff supposed to make me like DeSantis less? I also get stuff all over the place when I eat and I eat pudding and cookie dough with my fingers. How do you eat it? Your name kind of sounds like Jabba the Hutt.”

  1. Wow! They have to dig deep to come up with something that’s scandalous! Eating pudding with fingers, eating at meetings! That’s just horrible! (Sarcasm). Wondered what the hit job people would come up with on him if he chose to run for president. Go DeSantis!

  2. With three fingers — the same way the Usurper eats his own feces.

    DeSantis also eats fries with his fingers. Scandalous!

  3. Seriously?!? How dare Americans vote for this heathen!!

    Does he eat pretzels from the bag, pour M&M’s into his mouth, eat ribs with his fingers?!?

    If this is all they got, the guy is pretty darn clean.

  4. Somebody put me in the news because I scrapped bowls of pudding and cake/cookie mix with my fingers. Time to throw people in jail over this. Oh I forgot you are busy cutting breast and genitals off and Joey is looking all over for his brain.

  5. Once, in 19&4…DeSantis passed gas on an interstate trip in the back of his father’s Oldsmobile. This report has been confirmed by an anonymous source who directly smelt it.

  6. But Biden showering with his teenage daughter is ok 🤦‍♀️ If I don’t have a spoon, I’m eating that pudding with my fingers….maybe two fingers is more acceptable 🤷‍♀️
