Hurricane Ian wrought untold devastation on the state of Florida.
Governor Ron DeSantis is leading the state through the recovery.
And now Ron DeSantis asked Joe Biden to do one thing that drove the Fake News Media insane.
Natural disasters occurring is one of the few Constitutionally-provided situations allowing for the federal government to step in and spend money.
Hurricane Ian struck Florida as a massive Category 4 storm and caused at least $30 billion dollars in damage and killed 84 people – with the death toll rising each day as search and rescue crews sift through the wreckage.
Governor DeSantis took charge of the situation and was on site in devastated areas while providing constant updates to the public about the recovery.
DeSantis’ display of leadership and competence enraged the Fake News Media, which desperately tried to turn the storm into a Hurricane Katrina moment in the hopes of destroying DeSantis’ re-election campaign and thus his potential Presidential campaign.
Since the press could not attack DeSantis over the Governor’s preparation for the storm, the media needed to invent a new storyline to smear DeSantis.
In stepped POLITICO.
POLITICO Florida’s liberal activist Matt Dixon published a story slamming DeSantis for asking for federal disaster relief money to help pay for rebuilding after the damage caused by Ian.
The center of the story is claiming DeSantis is now acting like a responsible grown-up doing his job by working on behalf of his constituents.
But POLITICO falsely claims DeSantis is a fraud for criticizing Joe Biden over vaccine mandates and immigration as if politicians can’t put politics aside in life and death situations.
POLITICO also referred to DeSantis as wanting access to “Joe Biden’s wallet” – i.e. taxpayer money that Ron DeSantis and every Floridian pays – in a third world attempt to say that unless Americans are slavishly supportive of Joe Biden they have no right to receive access to public funds.
It's not "the president's wallet." It's American taxpayer dollars.
DC media activists now want to deny federal disaster aid to Americans in need, because the governor isn't a Democrat.
This is banana republic dictatorship mentality. https://t.co/OQI0r1hhZg
