Twitter Users Are Grossed Out By Ron DeSantis Wiping Nose And Then Touching Supporter
Ron DeSantis’ hand got up close and personal with his nose just before patting a man on the back during a trip to Iowa last week.
In a clip that surfaced on social media Friday, the Florida governor’s hand is seen making stops to his nostrils and his mouth before traveling straight to the man’s shirt.
The snotty interaction came as the apparent supporter told DeSantis, who has come under fire for his ongoing feud with Disney and other controversialmoves, not to “back down.”
Earlier this week, another unsettling moment from the governor’s Iowa visit similarly went viral, with a photo and video showing DeSantis laughing awkwardly during a fundraising event in Sioux Center.
Did he just wipe his snot on the guy’s shirt sitting in a wheelchair? pic.twitter.com/Mls53R4rtf

A Twitter user who had initially shared the nose-wiping clip also posted a different video from the fundraiser in which DeSantis again appears to touch his mouth or nose before touching someone.

A second Twitter user posted yet another clip of the governor wiping his nose with his hand at some point, jesting that DeSantis is “snot” going to be president.

Others online joked that DeSantis — who is expected to announce a 2024 presidential campaign as soon as next week — and his nose are both “running.”

It’s called a “blessing.” An anointing, if you will. King Charles got holy oil from the Holy Land or something like that. Meanwhile, the poor sap in the chair gets anointed with snot from Eggar the Bug.

He doesn’t laugh normal.
He doesn’t eat pudding normal.
He doesn’t wear a mask normal.
He doesn’t wipe his nose normal.
Who the hell wipes their whole open hand across their face like this?

Up close in slow motion, it looks like something is still on his nose, which is probably why that man is looking down at that guy’s shirt when DeSnotis put his hand there
