This past Wednesday, Old Uncle Joe (D) finally acknowledged Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as he praised his #1 political rival as part of his comments issued while visiting Florida in order to look over the damage resulting from Hurricane Ian making landfall this past week.
The praise stemming from Sleepy Joe came forth as part of his recent visit out to Lee County, which suffered a horrid pounding from the insanely strong Category 4 hurricane.
“What the governor’s done is pretty remarkable,” expressed Biden. “I think he’s done a good job.”
"I think he's done a good job," Biden adds, recognizing they have "different political philosophies," but has done a good job handling the crisis

Just last week, President Joe Biden found himself receiving significant backlash in the wake of avoiding talking to Governor DeSantis prior to the hurricane making landfall despite being able to make the time to reach out to several local mayors of the state.
Biden finally did reach out after the extreme backlash, including some from DeSantis, for apparently trying to play partisan politics as tens of thousands of Americans were about to go through a life-altering event.
“You know, I’m happy to brief the president if he’s interested in hearing what we’re doing in Florida, you know, my view on all this is like you got people’s lives at stake, you got their property at stake, and we don’t have time for pettiness,” stated DeSantis at that time. “We got to work together to make sure we’re doing the best job for them.”
