Fox and Friends Pete Hegseth called Ron DeSantis out on not siding with President Trump and using the Democrat’s foul play against him to take a cheap shot at Trump during his press conference remarks on Monday. Hegseth pointed out that Republicans should be rallying together behind Trump with a united front calling out the Banana Republic behavior being exhibited by Soros-funded Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.

According to Gateway Pundit, “New York City DA Alvin Bragg announced last week that he is going to abuse the justice system and file charges against his political opponent Donald Trump. If you thought this only happened in banana republics, you would be wrong… It appears that is where we are heading under Joe Biden!”

Hegseth and Judge Jeanine Pirro shared their thoughts on the situation Monday night on Hannity. The trio discussed the Democrats’ latest political assault on President Trump and responded to DeSantis’ comments, noting that the Florida governor had made a political misstep.

Hegseth said its political war metaphorically and Republicans need to be unified behind Trump:

“That’s where you mentioned Ron DeSantis. He’s totally right. This is a Soros-based prosecution. But I was actually disappointed in Ron DeSantis today. He talked about the political persecution, but he started with a too-cute-by-half political jab at Trump by saying, “I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star.” And the donors kind of chuckled. In some ways, it felt sanctimonious. It felt like a Jeb Bush sort of Scott Walker cheap shot. I don’t think that’s going to work. This is a closed-ranks behind a former president who fought for America First and as a selective political persecution from a DA funded by Soros. So you can acknowledge that but don’t take cheap shots. And I like Ron DeSantis. I like him a lot. We’re in a political season. I get it. But this is a moment to stand firmly behind Donald Trump and say in a full-throated nature this is political persecution. And the irony of it, and maybe Democrats want Trump to be the nominee. I don’t know. But the irony of it is they’re making it likely he will be because of this political persecution. If you’re a Republican right now, back Trump on this.”
