Noted body language expert Greg Hartley, recognized for his background as a former Army interrogator, interrogation instructor, and author of ten books on body language and behavior, joined Greg Kelly on Newsmax to analyze Ron DeSantis’s body language during the recent GOP debate. The consensus? It wasn’t a good night for DeSantis. The peculiar head-bobbing episodes continue to haunt the governor of Florida.

Mr. Hartley says the head-bob tends to make Ron look weak. Strong men punctuate with their hands, not their heads.

There’s no question: DeSantis is struggling to resonate with voters, losing momentum by the day. And the “signs of weakness” that Mr. Hartley highlighted could well be a significant factor in this.
