Appearing on Fox News’ “Justice w/Judge Jeanine” this Saturday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis slammed President Joe Biden’s “disastrous” policies, from his handling of the border crisis to the $1.9 ostensible coronavirus bill he just signed.
“It’s a disastrous change in policy. Donald Trump had the wall, which we all supported, but also safe third-party agreements, as well as ‘Remain in Mexico.’ And guess what happened? The border was under control,” he said to Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro.
Yet, thanks to the president’s policies, the border is now under siege.
“So they’ve gone back on those policies, and they’ve created this crisis. … It’s a disastrous way to start an administration. I think most of the American people are going to be strongly opposed to this,” DeSantis added.
This is true.
A Harvard/Harris poll published late last month found that 55 percent of voters disapproved of the president’s decision to “[r]educe the deportation of those here illegally who have committed crimes such as DUIs that are not national security related.”
Meanwhile, a CNN poll published last week found that a 49 percent majority of voters disapprove of the president’s policies on illegal immigration.
“Hopefully, they’ll reverse course,” DeSantis optimistically continued, speaking of the Biden administration.
Realistically speaking, it’s unlikely that Biden will backtrack given his ideologically driven commitment to catering to illegal aliens.
Listen to the governor’s discussion with Pirro below:
The good news, or at least for DeSantis’s constituents, is that he’s fortified his state as best as possible.
“When I became governor, we banned sanctuary cities and we also did e-verify. And so that’s not going to work in Florida. And hopefully we can do those policies nationwide at some point,” he said.
Especially if he runs for president in 2014 and wins.

“But Biden is going in the absolute wrong direction. Trump had it right at the border. Biden’s got it wrong,” DeSantis added.
Speaking of getting things right, Pirro pointed out that DeSantis is one of a select few governors who “got it right” vis-a-vis the coronavirus pandemic.
“What’s happened in New York has been a disaster with the mandating of COVID-infected patients into nursing homes, and now seven people accusing the governor of sexual harassment and even assault. It seems that you got everything right in Florida How did you do it?” she asked the governor.
He replied by pointing out that he’d simply weighed the trade-offs of every decision instead of just rushing to shut everything down to protect the most vulnerable.
“We just tried to look at the whole society. We wanted to look out for everybody. We viewed this as a virus that was particularly dangerous for elderly people but not as dangerous for younger people. So we did the opposite on nursing homes. We banned hospitals from sending infected patients into nursing homes. We also did things like prioritize our seniors for vaccinations,” he explained.
“But we had kids in school. It’s very important that they have the opportunity to go to school in person. We also saved the economy from collapse. Our unemployment rate right now is 4.9 percent. So we did all those things. Even with one of the most elderly populations in the country, our per capita COVID mortality is less than the national average and far less than lockdown states like New York, New Jersey and Illinois.”
For this, he was of course smeared. So were other Republican leaders like South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem who dared to weigh the trade-offs of every decision.
To this day, they’re STILL being smeared:

Dovetailing back to Biden, he meanwhile is being heralded as The Second Coming, despite failure after failure, including the ostensible relief bill he just signed that rewards lock down states while punishing those that handled the crisis correctly.
“We are getting penalized by about two billion dollars because we have low unemployment, because we’ve saved the economy, because also we have lower COVID mortality than a lot of these lock down states,” DeSantis noted.
“So what this bill does is it says if you locked down, if you destroyed your state, if you destroyed your economy and you failed to stop COVID as well, you’re going to get a windfall. So some of these lockdown states are getting an extra billion, two billion, three billion dollars. So it’s effectively a transfer of money from states like Florida and Georgia to states like New York, Illinois and California.”
He added, “It stinks to high heaven!”
And thank to the American people’s decision to elect Biden into office, it and everything else will keep stinking for four long years.
