In Memory Of Ron DeSantis's Failed Presidential Campaign, Here Are 16 DEEPLY Bizarre Pictures That Will Make You Cackle

On Jan. 21, Republican presidential candidate and Most Awkward Man Alive™, Ron DeSantis, suspended his campaign and officially endorsed Donald Trump for president in 2024.

DeSantis ran as a far-right candidate, so the end of his campaign is a net positive for humanity. But he also provided the internet with so many delightfully awkward photos and memes, and we'll be forever grateful.
