Joy Reid continues to show that she is truly a person who puts politics before humanity. In her most recent display of her depravity, she slams Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is working hard for those in his state that are struggling with the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
Lives lost, and buildings swept away mean nothing except a 1 minute sound bite to try and attack the Governor, who has stepped up to help his residents recover.
So what do you do when there is very little for one to actually criticize? You go low, and Reid attacked his acceptance of federal funds, which goes to the people, to help them recover,
Reid states that its not his leadership, that all he is a mouth piece, saying, “all he has to do now is open up his arms and receive federal money. That’s the executive leadership. We heard Russel Honore say yesterday, you read the script. He’s got his person in charge of disaster recovery. This is going to become a federal issue.”
Those of you who have not lived in Florida don’t understand, a lot of people buy their homes and get hurricane insurance. It’s not flood insurance. This was not a windy storm. This was a rainy storm. This was a floody storm. You have a lot of stagnant water that is destroying property right now. People are going to have to go to FEMA. People are going to have to go to the feds for that money. When Ron DeSantis was in Congress and you guys were in Congress, when he was a tea party freshman, when New York and New Jersey faced the exact same tragedy, I mean, literally the subways in New York were flooded, people could have drowned in the subway, when Ron DeSantis had the opportunity to make that decision and say, well, should the people of New York and New Jersey who were hit by a catastrophic hurricane, they weren’t even used to, he said no. That shouldn’t happen. He, Marco Rubio, and other tea party members of Senate and house, said they shouldn’t have that money. It’s too expensive. Now, as you said, he’s now got to go hat in hand to Joe Biden for aid. It’s something he didn’t even believe it as a tea partier.
