Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is leading his state through the recovery from the devastation inflicted by Hurricane Ian.
But DeSantis found himself facing an unexpected obstacle.
Kamala Harris hit Ron DeSantis with a threat that will put your jaw on the ground.
As Hurricane Ian approached Florida, Joe Biden initially refused to call Governor DeSantis.
Biden set up the media to craft the narrative that DeSantis failed to adequately respond to Ian due to the fact that DeSantis feuded with Biden over vaccine mandates and school shutdowns which cost the state of Florida in its time of need.
Journalists even rooted for death and destruction to hurt DeSantis politically since members of the media consider DeSantis a threat to kick Democrats out of the White House in 2024.
Hurricanes & politics tend to run into each other in Florida, but this time it’s with a governor who has put himself at odds with many local government officials and who has been looking for fights with a president he may end up running against… 6 weeks before Election Day: https://t.co/mbpcciOyQT

That was obvious fake news and Biden caved under pressure and called DeSantis the day before Ian thrashed Florida leaving more than 2.5 million residents without power and a path of destruction in Ian’s wake.
Hurricane Ian made landfall as a Category Four hurricane generating wind gusts up to 155 miles per hour.
Some entire towns on Florida’s coastline were ravaged.
Governor DeSantis displayed leadership qualities in his hurricane briefings such as calmness, providing accurate and detailed information on evacuating Floridians, what they could do to stay safe and how the state planned to manage the storm and its massive recovery.
But Kamala Harris embarrassed herself and created a political firestorm for the Democrats by politicizing the recovery from Ian.
Harris declared the administration would only distribute recovery aid based on skin color prioritizing handing out funds only to minority home and business owners while discriminating against white property owners.
Harris claimed this was “equity” in action.

DeSantis’ campaign spokeswoman Christina Pushaw blasted Harris for lying reassuring Floridians that access to recovery money was not determined by skin color.
This is false. @VP‘s rhetoric is causing undue panic and must be clarified. FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background.

“Equity” is one of the most sinister concepts introduced into American politics.
Under the “equity” agenda the government treats Americans differently based on their skin color.
Some Americans receive preferential treatment while others are left out in the cold.
That is the dictionary definition of racism.
And critics contend “equity” has no business in determining which Americans get federal help in recovering from a natural disaster.
