New Lincoln Project Ad: Disturbing DeSantis Interview Leaves America Asking: Why won’t he answer where he was on 9/11?

March 25, 2023The Lincoln Project released a new ad this morning showing how unready DeSantis is as a Presidential candidate. In an interview full of high cringe, Ron DeSantis was unwilling to answer a basic question about his biography.

You can watch the ad here. The ad is expected to run on TV in West Palm Beach on FOX News, in Tallahassee on FOX News and MSNBC, and in Rome, GA on FOX News and MSNBC. It will also run geofenced in Tallahassee and the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.

Said Rick Wilson, co-founder of the Lincoln Project:

  • “Every American knows where they were on 9/11, and though he refuses to say it, we know Ron DeSantis was teaching at the elite Darlington school in Georgia on that day. Why he refused to answer has left America questioning his honesty.”
  • “The Piers Morgan interview was the cherry on top of one of the worst rollouts of a Presidential candidate in decades. In a week where his main rival is terrified he’s about to be arrested, DeSantis actually managed to come out worse. Flip flops, bad policy, and a terrible interview that reached Mudd-Kennedy proportions gave Americans – and his increasingly nervous donors – a view of a candidate who is unready, unsteady, and evasive. Ron should stick to fighting with cartoon mice, because he’s not ready for a banking crisis or a war in Europe.”

The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
