DeSantis says Biden the ‘American Nero’, ran on being a ‘unifier’ then calls half the country a ‘threat’

Unapologetically conservative Sunshine State Governor Ron DeSantis let it rip about “one of the most disgusting speeches an American president has ever given,” where President Joe Biden likened Republicans as the ultimate enemy of the government.

“He is the American Nero,” DeSantis said on Friday’s episode of Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle” in response to President Joe Biden’s highly controversial and divisive speech given in Philadelphia on Thursday.

Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus was the narcissistic Roman emperor known for persecuting Christians who reigned from 54-68 AD.

The Florida governor condemned Biden for being “a failed leader,” and said, “I think that he is doing this because he’s trying to energize his base to fend off a real butt-whipping this November.”

“He ran as being a unifier,” he told guest host Raymond Arroyo. “And he’s basically saying to the vast majority of the country that disapproves of him that they’re effectively a threat to the republic.”

It wasn’t just an imagined threat either. Biden painted a doomsday picture in front of a “blood-red Nazi background” that “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

DeSantis knocked Biden’s policies that have wreaked havoc on American households since the day the president took office.

“He dodders, he lashes out, but at the end of the day, his policies are why there’s so much opposition to him. He came in and he opened the border, and we’ve seen what a disaster that’s been,” the 43-year-old elected official said. “He kneecapped American energy, we’ve seen how that’s hurt millions and millions of people across our country. They’ve inflated the currency, we have one of the worst inflation we’ve had in over forty years.”

“So of course, people are going to be upset at all the wreckage he’s left in his wake,” DeSantis said.

Arroyo asked if DeSantis thought Biden’s back peddling on his threat the next day was due to “senility” or “self-preservation” due to the poor post-speech polling.

“Look it’s been said that the President of the United States is whoever is feeding his teleprompter,” he responded. “And so they fed that teleprompter in Philidelphia last night and he angrily delivered that speech and lashed out at his fellow countrymen. Today he was asked off the cuff and he said something totally opposite, but I note, Raymond, they’re tweeting from his account the same nasty stuff that he said last night.”

DeSantis was right.

On the night of the speech, a tweet from his personal account called former President Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans “a threat to the very soul of this country.”

Around the same time, a similar message was shared from his official @POTUS account on Twitter.

Friday night was met with two divisive tweets repeating the condemnation of “MAGA” Republicans.

And a Sunday morning tweet confirmed that Biden – or his handlers running his Twitter account – weren’t backing off their anti “Make America Great Again” rhetoric.

Responding to a clip from the divisive Pennsylvania address where Biden villainized “MAGA Republicans” for their “extremism,” the Florida governor pointed out the hypocrisy of the commander in chief quoting the “rule of law.”

“Well, look, he talks about rule of law,” DeSantis said. “What has he done? He’s violated his oath of office to take care that the laws are faithfully executed by opening the border. He’s not following the law there. Look what he did with the student loan bailout, Congress never authorized that. He’s citing a law from September 11 to somehow give loan forgiveness and put it on the backs of the taxpayer for people with degrees in gender studies.”

“So, spare me this idea of the rule of law,” the governor said. “He doesn’t give a darn about the rule of law. And yes, the only Republicans he likes are Republicans that want him to get his way. If you stand up against his bad policies –  like we do in Florida –  then, of course, he’s going to try to write you out over who’s acceptable as an American citizen.”
