Twitter Compares Ron DeSantis to Evil Superhero Homelander From ‘The Boys’ After Recent Interview
During an interview, the politician was caught on video staring intensely and grinding his teeth while being asked a question about other candidates having their "knives out" for him during the first GOP debate for 2024 presidential hopefuls. The debate takes place in Milwaukee, Wis., on Wednesday (Aug. 23).
"In terms of the debate, look, I know from the military, when you’re over the target, that’s when you’re taking flak. If you look, really, in the last six to nine months, I’ve been more attacked than anybody else. Biden, Harris, the media, the left, other Republican candidates, and there’s a reason for that because people know I’m the biggest threat," DeSantis claimed while maintaining his dead-eyed stare and smile.
"Ron DeSantis' 'homelander on coke' vibes are off the charts with this one," one person joked.
Another Twitter user joked that they "can't tell anymore" who is who.
"I almost feel bad for Homelander," another user tweeted.
"Homelander truly is if DeSantis had Superman powers," someone else tweeted.
Another person called the two "identical."
The comic book "superhero" is a main antagonist in the series and media franchise. Played by Antony Starr in the Amazon Prime Video television show adaptation, Homelander is known for being egotistical, sociopathic and narcissistic.
Newsweek notes that the mocking comparisons may be the "nail in the coffin" for DeSantis' presidential campaign.
