America watches nervously as a major hurricane is striking the Florida coast. Although a very normal occurrence, the situation is heightened in the liberal media, thanks to Gov. DeSantis.
Democrats are trying to make it seem as if the Republican is unprepared for the crisis. One reporter tried to twist the FEMA director’s words about the governor’s plans.

Give me a break is right, Governor.
Politico, a supposedly unbiased outlet, also suggested the governor was not prepared.
But DeSantis still hasn’t faced one of the toughest challenges a Florida leader can encounter: a major hurricane…
The hurricane is on track to make landfall in the state just six weeks ahead of the November elections and, depending on how well the governor responds to the potentially catastrophic storm, DeSantis may emerge more popular or open himself up to criticism.
It seems Politico is trying to rewrite history. Because, although DeSantis hasn’t faced a “major” hurricane, he was governor in 2020–when a Category 2 storm rocked Florida.
Hurricane Sally made landfall as a Category 2 hurricane, causing flooding, storm surge, and wind across coastal Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle, the U.S. National Weather Service said.
At the time, DeSantis tackled the crisis, having declared a state of emergency for a plethora of counties that were expected to be impacted in mid-September 2020.
Are Democrats just liars, at this point? Gov. DeSantis declared a state of emergency weeks before this hurricane was near the state.
Even FEMA discussed the various state and local agencies that are working with the governor. DeSantis has urged residents to evacuate over the past week.
He is now urging those who remained to hunker down as the storm passes over. From all appearances, he is handling this hurricane as a real leader should.
We shudder to think what DeSantis’ 2018 Democrat rival, Gillum, would be doing if he was governor.
A hurricane is a serious threat, regardless of the state. It requires high-level coordination and response from various government agencies.
The media and government need to work together to ensure every last person is safe.
For the left to make this about politics is shockingly inappropriate. Even for them.
- Liberal reporters tried to use the hurricane to slander Florida Gov. DeSantis.
- Politico claimed the governor has never been tested by a hurricane.
- The governor managed Hurricane Sally in 2020–mobilizing resources for the state.
- DeSantis slammed the media for trying to politicize the situation.
