Joe Biden has been trying to deflect his own failures as a president by going after Republicans.
This week, he has gone after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, again, because DeSantis is a successful Republican and Democrats see him as a threat in 2024.
DeSantis hit back. Hard.
This was a thing of beauty.

DeSantis to Biden: ‘I don’t want to hear blip about COVID from you’ until you do your job and secure border
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis blasted President Biden on Wednesday telling him to do his job and secure the southern border and not say “blip” about the coronavirus until he does.
“Why don’t you do your job?” the Florida Republican said during a press conference Wednesday. “Why don’t you get this border secure? And until you do that, I don’t wanna hear a blip about COVID from you, thank you.”
“This is a guy who ran for office saying he’s going to shut down the virus,” DeSantis added. “And what has he done? He’s imported more virus from around the world by having a wide open southern border.”
Biden has been widely criticized on social media over reports that illegal immigrants who are carrying the coronavirus are being released into border communities, in some cases without notifying local law enforcement.
