It’s the meeting we have all been waiting for, President Joe Biden and the First Lady Dr. Jill Biden headed south to see the devastation caused by Hurricane Ian. Upon arriving, they met Gov. Ron DeSantis and his wife, Casey, and it didn’t take long for one moment to steal the whole show.
People saw the two couples come together and they had what looked like a polite conversation.
Biden took the first stab at what could be his presidential opponent by saying, “I think the one thing [the hurricane] has ended is the discussion about whether or not there is climate change and we should do something about it.”
But then it was DeSantis’ turn at the podium. And really when he stepped up to the podium, that was the moment that stole the whole show for many people.
DeSantis was standing behind a podium that included the presidential seal as Biden looked on. It let many minds wonder if this was a sign of things to come.
Someone quickly tweeted, “I must say… great work by team Biden getting DeSantis a head start for January 2025 and beyond with the podium.”
With Donald Trump only flirting with the idea of running again for a second term, many people are salivating about the possibility of DeSantis throwing his hat into the ring and winning the Republican primary.
Time will tell if this was a prophetic picture of the days ahead, and there’s still a lot to be figured out if both Trump and DeSantis plan to run against each other in the GOP primary.
But one thing is for sure, it looked good to see DeSantis behind that presidential seal while Biden look pale behind him.
That is certainly a better picture for America for 2024, so let’s keep getting to work. The midterms are just around the corner.
