Donald Trump offered a crowd of his supporters a slice of pizza he already bit into at Downtown House of Pizza in Fort Meyers, Florida, on Friday night. CNN reporter Kate Sullivan posted a video of the interaction on Twitter afterward. Earlier in the day, Trump had attended the Lee County Republican Party’s Lincoln Reagan Dinner.
In the video from the event, the former president can be seen holding up a box of pepperoni pizza as the crowd chants his name. “Does anybody want a piece that I’ve eaten?” Trump asks at one point. The crowd yells back “No!” in unison as Trump laughs. The clip has been going viral on social media over the weekend.

The pizza incident comes after Trump fired off an email attacking Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis earlier in the night. Trump remarked that Florida is “among the worst states” to live, die, pay taxes, and “be safe”, among other complaints. Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung added: “The real DeSantis record is one of misery and despair. He has left a wake of destruction all across Florida and people are hurting because he has spent more time playing public relations games instead of actually doing the hard-work needed to improve the lives of the people he represents.”
The email is just the latest in a number of attacks Trump has made at DeSantis as the 2024 campaign heats up. Earlier this month, a pro-Trump super PAC launched an ad targeting DeSantis’ “pudding fingers,” referencing a story of a time he allegedly ate pudding without a spoon. “Ron DeSantis loves sticking his fingers where they don’t belong. And we’re not just talking about pudding,” the ad reads. “DeSantis has his dirty fingers all over senior entitlements, like cutting Medicare, slashing Social Security, and even raising our retirement age.” In addition to the ad airing on CNN and Fox, the Trump campaign also tweeted it out.
