Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Faces Online Mockery for Boisterous Laugh in Viral Video

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has become the target of online mockery after a video of him laughing boisterously went viral on social media.[0] The clip, which shows DeSantis faking laughter with a man at a classic car show in Iowa, has been widely shared and has sparked a string of jokes on Twitter.[1] This incident follows images of DeSantis laughing with his mouth wide open, which also went viral on social media.[1] The Florida politician has been criticized for his notably rigid demeanor, with some people now regretting their previous criticism after seeing the unsettling video of DeSantis throwing his head back, opening his jaw wide enough to swallow a bowling ball, and cackling like Burgess Meredith’s Penguin after a double hit of xylazine.[2]

The video has led to accusations that DeSantis wiped his snot on the shirt of a man in a wheelchair, with former Republican-turned-anti-MAGA gadfly Ron Filipkowski asking: “Did he just wipe his snot on the guy’s shirt sitting in the wheelchair?” Many people have responded with a resounding “yes”.[3] Anti-Trump political group The Lincoln Project tweeted: “You’ve seen the photos, but the video is somehow worse”.[0] Others have criticized DeSantis for his strange behavior, with one Twitter user claiming that he eats pudding with his fingers.[4]

DeSantis is allegedly days away from announcing that he is running for president against his state’s most famous resident.[4] However, his recent behavior has been described as “stranger by the minute”, with some commentators pointing out that DeSantis has already committed one faux pas after another, including his war with The Walt Disney Company.[4] The Florida governor’s behavior has been widely criticized, with some people concluding that it is proof that artificial intelligence still has a long way to go before it can accurately replicate an authentic human laugh.[5]

During the appearance in Sioux Center, Iowa, DeSantis asked a man how much a 1955 Porsche he saw was worth.[0] However, the attention has been focused on the video of him laughing, which has gone viral on social media.[1] The incident has led to widespread mockery and criticism, with many people questioning DeSantis’ suitability for high office. Despite this, DeSantis appears to be gearing up for a presidential run, leaving many people wondering what other strange behavior they can expect from him in the future.
