Start with the bombshell testimony of former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson to the 1/6 committee on Tuesday.
While we can — and will — debate whether Hutchinson’s testimony puts Trump in legal jeopardy, it’s already clear that what she said has damaged him in some corners of the conservative world.
“Trump is a disgrace,” wrote the editorial board of the conservative Washington Examiner after Hutchinson’s testimony. “Republicans have far better options to lead the party in 2024. No one should think otherwise, much less support him, ever again.”

Much of DeSantis’ rising popularity is due to a sort of hybrid Trumpism — all of the war against wokeness without the, um distractions presented by the former President.
DeSantis has spent the better part of the last year in a culture war against the likes of Disney, クリティカルレース理論, math textbooks and the LGBT community — among other targets.

どれの, at first blush, you might think is bad news for DeSantis. But the image of the Florida governor battling for life in the face of an out-of-control judiciary, which is the story he will tell of the decision, is a clear winner for him with Republicans energized nationally over the recent Roe v. ウェイド判決.
“We reject this interpretation because the Florida Constitution does not include — and has never included — a right to kill an innocent unborn child,” デサンティス’ office said in a statement after Thursday’s ruling. “We will appeal today’s ruling and ask the Florida Supreme Court to reverse its existing precedent regarding Florida’s right to privacy. The struggle for life is not over.”
ポイント: DeSantis has emerged as a legitimate contender for the Republican nomination — even if Trump decides to run for a third time in 2024. Which is a remarkable statement.
