Reid Accuses DeSantis of Owning the Libs Instead of Preparing for Hurricanes

News & Politics

While real news outlets were tracking the path of incoming Hurricane Ian and covering the preparations that local authorities were executing in their towns, MSNBC’s Joy Reid went on another hate-filled rant Tuesday night about how allegedly terrible Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is. Reid couldn’t even make it a full minute into her show The ReidOut before falsely accusing DeSantis of spending his entire term “owning the libs” instead of preparing his state for hurricanes.   

“Florida prepares for a monster storm, with landfall expected tomorrow. Governor Ron DeSantis is going to be put to the test, forced to actually do his job. When he’s used to spending most of his time hanging out on Fox News and owning the libs,” Reid hatefully claimed in the opening preview of her show. 

After laughably complimenting Biden for his stellar job performance as president, Reid started acting out her DeSantis derangement syndrome again by lashing out at the Florida Governor as well as his Republican colleagues. “While Biden has been grinding out the sometimes thankless job of governing, Republicans have been waging these giddy little culture wars to own the libs,” Reid claimed. 

She then went after Virginia Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin who, according to Reid, “has drawn massive protests and walk-outs by high school students over his use of his executive power to force schools to out transgender students’ birth sexes against their will.”

She then rhetorically asked: “that’s the priority of a whole entire governor?” 

Does Reid not think parents should be made aware of what gender their children are pretending to be? 

Turning back to DeSantis, Reid went on an unhinged rampage: 

In Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis has spent the majority of his term waging wars against Disney while openly running for president on the side, sticking Florida taxpayers with a $2 trillion tax bill in the process while also attacking books and history and masks and Venezuelan migrants who aren’t even in his state, flying them from Texas at exorbitant rates to Massachusetts. 

Again, at Florida taxpayer expense. Maybe even breaking the law in the process. And let’s just be clear, he is doing this as his audition to have Joe Biden’s job. But is that what voters really hire an executive for? While DeSantis is fighting with Mickey and scoring hits on Fox News, Florida teachers are fleeing his state.

She wasn’t finished. Turning to the left’s major paranoia, Reid cried that “climate change is ravaging the coast” and falsely blamed DeSantis for the alleged collapse of the state’s home insurance market which, according to Reid, is “leaving thousands of Floridians in danger of having no coverage for their homes when natural disasters like hurricane Ian strike.” 

“And that last bit is important. Because preparing for and dealing with hurricanes is kind of what Florida governors do. And making sure that people have insurance, well it is kind of key,” Reid sanctimoniously lectured.  

Obviously, DeSantis is doing his job as governor of the state of Florida. He consistently receives high marks for his job performance and is currently on track to win reelection decisively. Reid can’t stand that he’s successful and lashes out every chance she gets.

JOY REID: Florida prepares for a monster storm, with landfall expected tomorrow. Governor Ron DeSantis is going to be put to the test, forced to actually do his job. When he’s used to spending most of his time hanging out on Fox News and owning the libs. Is he up to the task?

REID: We begin with Florida, bracing for Ian, a major hurricane that could submerge large portions of the gulf coast. And it will be a test of leadership. Governing, you see, is hard. It’s unsexy, and not always television-friendly. And governing through a crisis, well, that is where the proverbial rubber meets the road. 

President Biden has had to juggle a bunch of competing crises while still trying to deliver for the American people. I mean it is what it is. That’s the executive gig. And today, the juggling act was on full display. Biden spent the day talking up his plan to lower drug costs and bolster Social Security, unveiling a plan to end hunger by 2030 and reaching out to Florida mayors ahead of hurricane Ian’s landfall.

REID: On the other side of the spectrum, while Biden has been grinding out the sometimes thankless job of governing, Republicans have been waging these giddy little culture wars to own the libs. While ignoring their citizens’ basic rights and needs. Take for example Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves, who told a crowd of supporters how thrilled he was to leave Jackson, the state capital, in the midst of a devastating collapse of the city’s water system. This after he spent years bragging about how successful he’s been at blocking funds to fix the water crisis in the past. 

Then there’s book banning Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin who has drawn massive protests and walk-outs by high school students over his use of his executive power to force schools to out transgender students’ birth sexes against their will. That’s the priority of a whole entire governor? In Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis has spent the majority of his term waging wars against Disney while openly running for president on the side, sticking Florida taxpayers with a $2 trillion tax bill in the process while also attacking books and history and masks and Venezuelan migrants who aren’t even in his state, flying them from Texas at exorbitant rates to Massachusetts. 

Again, at Florida taxpayer expense. Maybe even breaking the law in the process. And let’s just be clear, he is doing this as his audition to have Joe Biden’s job. But is that what voters really hire an executive for? While DeSantis is fighting with Mickey and scoring hits on Fox News, Florida teachers are fleeing his state. Climate change is ravaging the coast, and the state’s home insurance market is literally collapsing leaving thousands of Floridians in danger of having no coverage for their homes when natural disasters like hurricane Ian strike. And that last bit is important. Because preparing for and dealing with hurricanes is kind of what Florida governors do. And making sure that people have insurance, well it is kind of key.
