Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis mocked President Biden in a podcast episode on Friday and questioned the president’s ability to do his job, and nodded at Biden’s “Let’s Go, Brandon.”
“There are all the issues you see with our country and a lot of issues with Brandon in the White House,” DeSantis joked to his conservative audience.

“I see the guy isn’t pressing all the cylinders, he hasn’t had a great year,” DeSantis added.
“Let’s go Brandon” is a phrase used as an insult by presidential critics, widely reported by a journalist who accidentally mistaken NASCAR fans ’song“ F — Joe Biden ”for“ Let’s Go to Brandon ”. taken from the incident.
DeSantis again dropped that joke, saying his state was “hitting” the Biden administration’s efforts to tighten COVID-19 restrictions and mandates.
“We’re still strong in Florida. We’re beating Brandon in Florida,” DeSantis said.
DeSantis boasted of his populist success in Florida, claiming that citizens who were tired of regulation were coming to Sunny State for “freedom,” resembling “basket” blue states.
“When I was elected, there were about 300,000 Democrats registered in Florida than Republicans,” DeSantis told the audience. “Now, for the first time in history, we have more Republicans than Democrats, and we’re making more and more money every month.”
The governor also tried to allay fears that an increase in interstate transplants would destroy the conservative majority in the state.
“Each of these states had more Republicans than Democrats,” he said, claiming a population influx from more liberal states, “If I didn’t win in 2018, this state would be the same state would have become a basket like that. “
