Florida Governor Rick Scott loves Donald Trump
This is the kind of silliness that Florida Governor Rick Scott has become known for in the Sunshine State. In a lengthy Op-ed in USA Today, Scott sings the praises of Donald Trump and then says but golly, "I have no plans to endorse a candidate."
Well that's courageous as hell.
Scott shows his love for Trump throughout his opinion piece.
Political pundits are shocked that Donald Trump is leading in the polls. The same thing happened in 2010 when I entered the Florida gubernatorial race against the already anointed and establishment-endorsed sitting Republican attorney general. One establishment member even said to me “how can you be Governor? I don’t know you."
Let's pause: Did Scott just take a slap at establishment candidate Jeb Bush? Or Floirda U.S. Senator Marco Rubio?
Back to Trump:
I know Donald Trump personally, and while I currently have no plans to endorse a candidate before Florida’s March presidential primary, there is no doubt that Donald is a man who speaks and tweets his mind freely. But, I don’t think his ability to give the most interesting interviews or speeches is the only thing that has him leading in the polls. I think he is capturing the frustration of many Americans after seven years of President Obama’s very intentional government takeover of the American economy.
Let's pause again.
Not an endorsement? Seriously?
We are mere weeks away from the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary and Scott writes high praise for one of the candidates.
Once again, Scott proves that he really thinks most voters are a bunch of dummies.
Soon Scott drifts off to brag about his accomplishments. You can read Scott's non-endorsement, endorsement here.
