President Joe Biden insists he spoke with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis "four or five times" regarding the federal government hurricane response.
Initially, it was reported that Biden resisted calling the governor personally.
"The White House spent most of Tuesday defending the president for resisting making a personal phone call to DeSantis prior to the storm, despite previously doing so for other governors facing damaging hurricanes," reported Breitbart.
Biden Tells Tales
It appears President Biden might have been pouting a bit about DeSantis's efforts to deal with Biden's open border by shipping illegal immigrants to democrat-run sanctuary cities.
DeSantis said as of Tuesday he had not heard from Biden, but that he would be "happy to brief the President if he’s interested in hearing what we’re doing in Florida."
"I’m happy to brief the President if he’s interested in hearing what we’re doing in Florida... You've got people’s lives at stake...no time for pettiness, we've gotta work together to make sure we’re doing the best job for them. So my phone line is open." @RonDeSantisFL on Biden pic.twitter.com/d2FkngDq5J

"You’ve got people’s lives at stake…no time for pettiness, we’ve gotta work together to make sure we’re doing the best job for them," DeSantis added. "So my phone line is open."
In other words, Mr. President, get out of your pouting corner and do the business of protecting and helping Americans.
