Joe Biden is one of the most unpopular Presidents in American history.
Biden’s approval numbers are historically low even with the media covering for him at every turn.
And Ron DeSantis dropped the hammer on Joe Biden with this brutal truth bomb.
The latest Biden fiasco revolved around his indifference to the apocalyptic wildfires that ravaged Maui.
At least 111 residents are officially listed as dead with the death toll expected to rise by as many as hundreds more.
Biden, who the media claims is the most empathetic man in this history of human civilization, could not be bothered to interrupt his beach vacation to even speak of the disaster, let alone visit the wrecked island and comfort the victims.
When a reporter asked Biden about the fires his only response was “no comment.”
Appearing at “The Gathering,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted the media for their double standard telling the crowd that the press shrugged at Biden lying on the beach while Americans burned when if this happened under a Republican president the press would have claimed the GOP started the fires in the first place.

If a Republican did that, “what do you think the media would do? They would go CRAZY! In fact, they would blame the Republican for the fires happening in the first place. We all know that that’s the truth.” pic.twitter.com/WNlas7X9uh

When George W. Bush was President, the image of him flying over New Orleans with his face pressed against the window of Air Force One effectively ended his Presidency as the media played it up that Bush let Hurricane Katrina ravage the city because it was filled with black residents.
Joe Biden and the press did not want to draw too much attention to the wildfires in Maui because then they would have to answer questions about how officials dedicated to Biden’s climate change and equity agenda allowed this tragedy to spiral out of control.
Kaleo Manuel, former deputy director of the Hawaii Commission on Water Resource Management, allegedly waited more than five hours to release water to communities burning in the wildfires because Manuel is a social justice warrior committed to equity and the sacred treatment of water.
“The West Maui Land Company said in an Aug. 10 letter to Manuel that his commission refused its request to divert streams to fill landowners’ reservoirs in the hard-hit Lahaina area until the wildfires raged out of control, according to a report,” the New York Post reported.
“Sources told Honolulu Civil Beat that Manuel had asked the company to consult with a local farmer about the impact of water diversion before approving their request,” the New York Post added.
Meet M. Kaleo Manuel, the official who refused to release water in Maui, contributing to up to 106 deaths.
A Hawaiian Studies major, Kaleo prefers a traditional, holistic "One Water" approach where water is revered, not used.

The media double standard would be glaring and infuriating if it weren’t so obvious and expected.
