    Florida Democrat gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist compared himself to Jesus in a bizarre stump speech that was uncovered this week. During the speech, he said he was fighting against "DeSatan," a reference to the state's popular Republican Governor Ron DeSantis.

    The Daily Caller reported that the video was from a March 17, 2022, campaign event where Crist also compared himself to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

    "Look at that sign right there. You see the colors? The blue and the yellow," Crist said. "Does that remind you of any country that's in the news?"

    "Ukraine!" some people in the small crowd shouted.

    "Yeah, we're fighting for freedom too. We're fighting for freedom too. And Zelensky, President Zelensky, is amazing," Crist gushed. "And the courage, and the strength, and the decency that he shows."

    "This is an election about decency, about being decent to one another, about being kind to everyone," Crist continued. "It's called a Florida for all. You know, we got a divider on the other side [DeSantis] and a uniter over here [points to himself]."

    "You know, some people call him 'DeSatan,' have you heard that?" Crist continued. "DeSatan vs. that [points to a campaign sign of his last name."

    "Christ," a few in the audience responded.

    "Oh, think about it," he said. "The choice is crystal clear. There's no question about it. It is crystal clear. He's bad. We're good."


    "Charlie Crist has always been self-absorbed, but comparing himself to the second coming of Jesus Christ is a new level of bizarre delusion," a spokesperson for the DeSantis campaign told The Daily Caller. "He's beyond embarrassing - and it's only September."

    "Just making him sound cooler," political commentator Stephen L. Miller responded to the video.

    Political commentator David Reaboi responded, "This is perfect for the demographic that believes in neither Christ nor Satan, but really really wants to diddle kids."

    DeSantis weighed in on the upcoming midterm elections during a recent Fox News interview, where he said that the key to the Republican Party taking back control of the House and Senate was holding President Joe Biden accountable for the crises that have erupted under his leadership.

    "We'll hold Biden accountable," DeSantis said. "This is a referendum on his failures, make sure everybody knows how his policies have contributed to the mess we're in, and then articulate what you will do to address things like the border, like crime, like inflation. I think if you do that, I think Republicans are going to win both chambers. And I think it'll be a really good night."
