Here’s how MSNBC started their article yesterday:
Florida’s GOP governor is a constant menace to the Biden administration and migrants seeking refuge in Florida. A hurricane had him singing a different tune.
In just a week’s time, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has gone from menacing troll to docile figurehead. Evidently, it takes a natural disaster to put a (temporary) stop to his political terrorism.
It’s clearly been fun for DeSantis to treat Florida like his own fiefdom, boastfully signing laws restricting the right to vote, curbing teachers’ ability to discuss inequality in class, and punishing businesses that oppose his bigoted agenda. Seemingly auditioning for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, DeSantis has portrayed himself as a foil to the Biden administration, filing lawsuits to undermine President Joe Biden’s agenda while taking public — and personal — potshots at the president.
But Hurricane Ian had DeSantis singing a different tune.
But that wasn’t enough so their troll machine on social media had to be used!
A blue check liberal by the name of Tom Watson shared a photo of Florida governor, Ron DeSantis, and President Biden with the caption ‘DeSantis bends the knee’.

It seems that the photo is from a disaster in Miami-Dade County that killed 98 people in 2021.

Focus on your own state if you’re not interested in helping the people of Florida.
You are using a photo from a disaster in Miami-Dade County that killed 98 people in 2021.
To politicize a deadly hurricane in SWFL.
My only question is WHY?

We know that the photo is old but just watch what a difference a couple of seconds makes in a deceptively captioned photo, eh?
If we use their logic here’s Biden bending the knee:
Yes, setting politics aside and meeting with a political adversary so people struggling in the aftermath of a natural disaster can get relief as quickly as possible is exactly like bending the knee…
Even if this had been a photo related to the Hurricane Ian relief effort, isn’t this exactly what we want our leaders to do?
On Wednesday, DeSantis asked Biden to approve a major disaster declaration for all 67 counties in Florida, which comes with federal funds to aid the recovery effort. The president promptly approved it — as he should have.
I’m shrewd, passionate, learned and energetic, God-fearing and patriotic. I’ve done a fine job reintroducing good old American conservatism to a new generation of Americans. I’ve earned the love and friendship of many, the hatred of some, but the respect of all.
