We'll have to see how much discipline DeSantis has.  The good thing is, the more he has, the more insane Trump is going to get with his attacks.  It's going to be enormous fun either way.
Here's the thing... it doesn't matter how much discipline Ron Deathsentence has.

You see, Trump has cult followers... ones who continue to believe he "tells it like it is". Deathsentence does have significant support in the party, but at this moment it appears to be more a case of "He can win" or "we like his racist policies and he doesn't tweet like Trump". He could be swapped out with any pro-fascist republican and people will still probably react the same.

Trump is unlikely to win in a general election in 2024 (assuming he even runs and isn't in jail at the time). This is the case whether he actually responds to the attacks or ignores them. So regardless of how Desantis reacts, its not going to change the outcome in the general election. Meanwhile at least some of the cult MAGAchud will believe trump, probably enough to scuttle the chance of any other republican who decides to challenge Trump.

I didn't mean it might change the outcome.  I meant it's going to be fun to watch.  And if Trump's response to Biden's State of the Union address on Truth Social is anything to go by, we're not going to be disappointed.

Oh, I agree its going to be great fun.

All those republicans who loyally stood by Trump through 2 impeachments and a myriad of crimes, only to find that in the end he's willing to burn it all down.

You have to wonder if republicans like Moscow Mitch are secretly praying for the DoJ or the Georgia prosecutor to bring charges against Trump just so they can get him out of the way.
