Biden appears to say “No one f***s with a Biden” during tour of the Hurricane Ian devastation


Biden meets with DeSantis in Florida as he surveys damage from Hurricane Ian

President Joe Biden will visit hurricane-ravaged Florida with a pledge that federal, state and local governments will work as one to help rebuild homes, businesses and lives — putting politics on mute for now to focus on those, who have needs. Hurricane Ian has left at least 84 people confirmed dead, including 75 in Florida, while hundreds of thousands of people wait for power to be restored. Biden planned to meet Wednesday with residents and small business owners in Fort Myers, Florida, and thank officials who are providing relief and removing debris. With the midterm elections just a month away, the crisis had the potential to bring political rivals together in common cause, at least for a time. Ian’s 150 mph winds and punishing storm surge last week knocked out power for 2.6 million in Florida. Many in Florida do not have access to food and water. Joining Biden in Florida will be two of his most prominent Republican critics: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Rick Scott, according to the White House and Scott’s spokesman. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre suggested Tuesday that it would be inappropriate for them to focus on political differences.
