New Occasions had by no means heard of Large DeSantis Power.
A few of us, nonetheless, are acquainted with BDE, which in standard parlance stands for “Large Dick Power.” (Children right this moment, proper?!) It is a time period that describes an individual who’s assured, however not cocky. City Dictionary sums it up as “the loud and boisterous power emitted by somebody who has a colossal phallus and would not have to inform anybody about it…. Individuals with large dick power possess qualities akin to management, kindness, positivity in direction of others, nice humor, and a ‘do not fuck with me’ aura. Nice hair too.”
Dunno about y’all, however to our ears, none of that screams “Ron DeSantis” — a person who has been variously described as a “mini-Trump” and a “smug asshole” and has earned headlines for yelling at children, for heaven’s sake.
Maybe not surprisingly, many on social media have been fast to disagree with Lake’s evaluation of the governor’s putative dimensions.
