“It was not a good comment to make,” declared Fox News host Tomi Lahren in response to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis appearing to equate Trump supporters to “listless vessels.”

DeSantis has since faced mounting criticism after making the harsh comparison while interviewing with The Florida Standard on Friday.

“A movement can’t be about the personality of one individual,” DeSantis said. “If all we are is listless vessels that’s just supposed to follow, you know, whatever happens to come down the pike on Truth Social every morning, that’s not going to be a durable movement.”

“I’m sure he’s kicking himself. I’m sure he wishes he could rephrase it,” Lahren speculated in regards to DeSantis’s remarks.

Tomi went on to suggest that DeSantis may have misspoke when trying to make a general statement about the future of the conservative movement. However, he failed to make the point and “it’s going to hurt him, it’s going to bruise him badly” moving forward.

“To Hillary Clinton, Trump supporters are ‘deplorables.’ To Ron DeSantis, they are ‘listless vessels.’ The truth is, Trump supporters are patriots,” the statement read.

“Ron DeSantis is showing his true colors. The pressure of polling in third place is getting to DeSantis and now he is lashing out at the very same voters who got him elected Governor. DeSantis must immediately apologize for his disgraceful insult.”
