Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) appears unfazed by former President Donald Trump’s attempts to brand him with a nickname.

“You can call me whatever you want,” DeSantis laughingly told Piers Morgan during a preview clip from an upcoming interview. “Just as long as you also call me a ‘winner.'”

Still, the governor and possible GOP presidential challenger said he prefers “Ron DeSanctimonious” over “Meatball Ron” when it comes to the nicknames offered by the former president.

“Well … I don’t know how to spell ‘DeSanctimonious,'” he said.

“I don’t really know what it means, but I kind of like it. It’s long. It’s got a lot of vowels. So we’ll go with that.”

Morgan appeared to admit that “DeSanctimonious” seemed the better choice.

“Even he dropped ‘Meatball Ron,'” the host said, referring to Trump.

Morgan’s interview with DeSantis airs Thursday on Fox Nation’s Piers Morgan Uncensored.
