DeSantis knew the challenges of running for president when he entered the ring. But this was the last thing he expected.

And mayhem ensues after Ron DeSantis is rushed by an angry protestor.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has been hitting the campaign trail hard in his efforts to win the Republican nomination for president.

His latest event was a town hall in Iowa that was hosted by Fox News.

As DeSantis was speaking, a rabid protestor rushed the stage chanting, “no oil money,” while trying to unravel a banner for viewers both on TV and in the audience to see.

“You know, you live and you learn with these people. Right?” DeSantis said while being unfazed by the protestor who was then being removed from the stage.

“All right. All right. Well, you guys, that was a mistake. You guys didn’t get that one right.”

Once the protestor was fully removed, DeSantis then went back to speaking on the issue of abortion, where he was trying to explain how he was a better pro-life candidate than other Republicans such as Nikki Haley and Donald Trump.

“I think she’s indulged in some of these left wing tropes [about abortion],” the governor said about Haley.

“She has chastised pro-lifers, saying, you know, ‘You shouldn’t be talking about putting women in prison.’ Nobody’s talking about that,” he continued.

“I’ve not met a single pro-lifer that has ever talked about that. That is a trope that the left and the media will use and yet she’s indulged that.”

Currently, DeSantis trails Haley for second place in Iowa by 0.2 percentage points according to RealClearPolitics.

And while Trump is ahead of both of them in first place, DeSantis doesn’t seem to be worried about being an “underdog.”

“I’ve answered questions from everyone in all corners of the state. These other candidates, you know, Donald Trump’s not been willing to come and answer your questions. I don’t think Nikki Haley has gotten a fraction of these counties.”

“So, I’ve been here. I’ve done it right. I think that Iowans appreciate that and we’re going to do well, though, I kind of like having lower expectations to be honest with you.”

“I’ve been an underdog my whole life and everything I’ve ever done.”

Gov. DeSantis’ presidential campaign hasn’t lived up to expectations thus far despite his strong track record of conservative values that he’s brought upon the state of Florida.

But that doesn’t seem to be stopping him from pushing onward and trying to win the GOP nomination.

And angry protestors aren’t going to stop him either.
