Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded to those on the internet who are concentrating on his stature and the boots he wears, stating that the country is dealing with more pressing problems than their “foot fetishes.”
DeSantis made the comments on Thursday night in an interview with Newsmax’s Eric Bolling, following criticism of the Republican presidential candidate from certain quarters who have been obsessive over his boots lately.
“There are these gotcha people, these people who just want to sit there and they want to talk about how tall you are, whether you’re wearing boots with heel extenders inside. I mean, Governor, the southern border is a disaster, terrorists are coming across the border. We got two wars that we’re kind of funding, and they want to talk about how tall you are. Respond please.” Bolling said.
“Look Eric, this is no time for foot fetishes. We’ve got serious problems as a country. We’ve got war in the Middle East, we’ve got terrorists coming across our own southern border, we have an American dream that’s out of reach for millions of Americans because of the Bidenflation and the high energy prices. We’ve got schools that are indoctrinating kids and not educating kids, and we’ve got cities that are being overrun by crime.” DeSantis responded.
“I know people want to try to divert on to other issues. I know Donald Trump and a lot of his people have been focusing on things like footwear. I’ll tell you this, if Donald Trump can summon the balls to show up to the debate, I’ll wear a boot on my head.” He concluded.
