Today in the press briefing it was revealed that Joe Biden has called mayors in Florida regarding Hurricane Ian but has not called Governor DeSantis.
When asked if Biden would be calling DeSantis, reporters were told by Jaclyn Rothenberg, the FEMA spokesperson, that FEMA has a ‘strong team’ working with the governor and his office.
So no, Biden won’t be calling DeSantis.
“But he’s made conversations with the mayors, so is there any reason why not the governor?”

I remember when the pandemic hit, President Trump was quick to work with governors of their states to make sure they had ventilators and other needed medical items to deal with COVID. He even had Democrat governors like Newsom and Cuomo praising him on camera for his efforts to make sure they had what they needed.
Now here we are, with Florida and the east coast staring down the barrel of a natural disaster and Biden won’t even pick up the phone to make sure DeSantis has what he needs to deal with this impending category 3/4 hurricane headed for Florida’s west coast.
