Republican Presidential Candidate Ron DeSantis Lacks “Basic Social Skills,” Eats Pudding With His Fingers

When the ghoulish aspiring fascist isn’t busy trying to convince his brain dead fans that drag queens want to turn their babies into woke demons, he relaxes by, what else, eating chocolate pudding with his fingers. Via an in-depth DailyBeast report on DeathSantis, here’s the funniest (and most telling) passage:

Despite having a job that entails exchanging small talk and pleasantries on a daily basis, the Florida governor tends to brush off those obligations and struggles with basic social skills, according to a source close to DeSantis, several of his former staffers, and other GOP operatives who have worked with him and his team.

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

“He would sit in meetings and eat in front of people,” a former DeSantis staffer told The Daily Beast, “always like a starving animal who has never eaten before… getting shit everywhere.”

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.
