After former President Donald Trump poked fun at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at a rally in Pennsylvania last week by calling the governor “Ron DeSanktimonius,” Fox News correspondent and New York Post columnist Carol Markovich told Varney & Co. on Monday that her colleagues Floridians are “really angry” at Trump’s comment and believe the president should have waited until after the midterms to go after his potential Republican opponent in 2024.

KAROL MARKOVICH: It’s interesting because I think both men are quite popular in the conservative movement. But I heard that so many people after this commentsay they really didn’t like what Trump did. It wasn’t just that he came after DeSantis.

Look, everyone knows that if a presidential campaign starts against these two men, they will go after each other. This makes a lot of sense. But that was days before Florida gubernatorial elections. And even the Trump superfans were really pissed off about what I was talking to. They just didn’t like it very much. Like, wait until these elections are over, and then chase each other. It would be fair.
