President Joe Biden finally paid a visit to hurricane-ravaged Florida on Wednesday and during his brief tour of the areas devastated by Hurricane Ian, behaved in a disrespectful manner toward Governor Ron DeSantis, a man whom he has frequently clashed with over COVID restrictions, illegal immigration and groomers and their enablers in classrooms.
Not only did the nation’s 46th president snub the Sunshine State until he had visited Puerto Rico first – which was also recently hit by a hurricane – but while he was in Fort Myers, which bore the brunt of the 155 mph force of nature that slammed into the southeastern Gulf Coast last week, he was caught on a hot mic dropping a very unpresidential F-bomb.
Biden’s foul-mouthed outburst took place when he was exchanging words with Fort Myers Beach Mayor Ray Murphy who was wearing sunglasses and a hat when the brief conversation was captured on video.
“Thanks for everything, thanks for coming down. We appreciate,” he said to Biden, who acknowledged the local leader’s gratitude before popping off.
“No one f**ks with a Biden,” he appeared to say as the mayor replied, “yeah, you’re godd**n right,” laughingly.
Before the uncouth leader’s profane tough guy posturing, he was dismissive of DeSantis – whom he had warmly greeted – by flirting with a female FEMA worker and sniffing her hair while the governor was speaking.

And of course, Biden attributed the damage to climate change as if powerful hurricanes haven’t been battering the U.S. since back in the days before it was rebranded after global warming fell flat.
The look on DeSantis’ face sums up what a bunch of malarkey that it was.

Biden did, however, dial his contempt for DeSantis down several notches given the gravity of the situation with victims of the storm picking up the pieces of their shattered lives, giving props to his Republican nemesis, magnanimous words that must have been like nails on a chalkboard to the New York-D.C. media jackals.

“Today, we have one job and only one job, and that’s to make sure the people in Florida get everything they need to fully, thoroughly recover,” Biden said while standing alongside the governor and first responders. “We’re here today because we wanted to tell you in person that we’re thinking of you and we’re not leaving. We’re not leaving until this gets done.”
“One of the things that you’re seeing in this response: We are cutting through the bureaucracy. We are cutting through the red tape, and that’s from local government, state government all the way up to the president,” DeSantis said.
Biden was also caught on a hot mic dropping an F-bomb, most notably back when he was Barack Obama’s vice president after his boss signed the Affordable Care Act into law in 2010.
“This is a big f**ing deal,” he told the nation’s 44th president about Obamacare.
The recovery efforts will continue in Florida with Washington D.C. as well as state and local governments along with other entities pitching in to attend to the area as well as residents whose lives were thrown into disarray by Ian.
