    Ron DeSantis's Painfully Awkward Smile Is Going Viral, And It Really Does Gets Funnier Every Time

    "Ron DeSantis’s debate smile looks like he’s taking his 8th grade yearbook photo and he’s a little nervous about his new braces."

    Last night, the GOP held a Trump-less debate with eight Republican nominee hopefuls.
