Trump Goes After DeSantis For Wearing ‘High Heels’

Former President Donald Trump recently went after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), saying that the Florida governor “walks like a duck” when he’s wearing heel lifts inside his cowboy boots, adding that only a “really good debater” could force DeSantis to take off his shoes and show the lifts in them.

During an interview with Breitbart News, the former president tore into his fellow Republican vying for the presidency in 2024, noting that in the last Republican presidential primary debate, DeSantis had trouble walking off the stage because he might have been wearing “high heels.”

“Did you see him walk off the stage in the last debate? He could barely walk,” Trump told Breitbart News. “I’m a little bit surprised he continues to do it because he had trouble as he walked off the stage in the last debate. Somebody is going to say to him, ‘Take off those shoes we want to see if they’re high heels.’”

“He’s going to have no choice but to do it if you had a really good debater. That’s what they’d do because he tries to pretend it doesn’t happen. He walks like a duck,” the former president added.

In recent months, DeSantis has become the center of controversy, with many alleging that the Florida governor has hidden lifts inside his cowboy boots to try and boost his height. DeSantis denied such allegations during a podcast with businessman Patrick Bet-David.

Several media outlets, such as Politico, Vanity Fair, the New York Magazine and Barstool, have investigated whether DeSantis is wearing lifts inside his shoes.

Videos of the Florida governor tripping while walking has gone viral on social media.

In November 2023, during a campaign rally in Claremont, New Hampshire, Trump mocked DeSantis for stumbling on the debate stage.

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) also took shots at DeSantis for nearly falling on the debate stage during an interview with radio host Charlamagne Tha God on the Daily Show.

Trump is currently trouncing DeSantis in polls and has been doing so since the beginning of his presidential campaign. This comes as the Iowa caucuses are set to begin on Jan. 15, 2024, and the New Hampshire primary on Jan. 23, 2024.
