Trump supporters on Twitter lost their minds last Wednesday after conservative radio host Mark Levin tweeted a link to Governor Ron DeSantis’ campaign fundraising website following his interview with DeSantis on The Mark Levin Show, Mediaite reported.
DeSantis officially kicked off his 2024 presidential campaign by giving several interviews, starting with a Twitter Spaces discussion hosted by Elon Musk. In addition to speaking with Mark Levin, DeSantis was also interviewed by his former House colleague, Fox News host Trey Gowdy.
Once the interview ended, Levin tweeted the link to the DeSantis for President fundraising page on WinRed.
Unsurprisingly, Trump supporters were outraged, blasting Levin for daring to tweet the campaign fundraising page for a candidate who is not named Donald Trump.
After Mediaite seized on the Trump Twitter response, Levin tweeted a link to the Mediaite article and pointed out that he tweets the links to fundraising pages for every candidate who appears on his show. Levin said the outlet “and the other crazies are pathetic.”
Mediaite then updated its article to include Levin’s response. It was only then that Mediaite engaged in a bit of fact-checking and confirmed that after Levin interviewed Republican candidate Vivek Ramaswamy in late March, he also tweeted the link to Ramaswamy’s website.
DeSantis kicked off his 2024 campaign with a Twitter Spaces discussion hosted by CEO Elon Musk and moderated by venture capital founder David Sacks.
The unique campaign venue suffered from a series of technical glitches due to the sheer volume of listeners trying to tune in. Once Twitter engineers found the cause of the problems and the discussion was moved from Elon Musk’s account to the account of moderator David Sacks, the broadcast ran without a hitch.
The wide-ranging interview featured DeSantis taking questions from both Sacks and Musk. Sacks then invited several prominent conservatives to ask questions of Governor DeSantis, including Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie, school choice advocate Christopher Rufo, and prominent Second Amendment advocate Dana Loesch.
