and a Trumpublican. But I repeat myself.
"The president and the governor have each made a point of saying publicly that they and their teams are in touch. “He complimented me. He thanked me for the immediate response we had,” Mr. Biden said on Thursday, suggesting that any political conflicts with Mr. DeSantis were irrelevant in these times. “This is about saving people’s lives, homes and businesses.” (In February, Mr. DeSantis baselessly said Mr. Biden 'stiffs' storm victims for political reasons, insisting that the president 'hates Florida.')"

THE DOUBLE STANDARD
The GOP is loaded with people complaining about Hunter Biden, his laptop, his work record, his China connections, his drug abuse, even his dad, President Joe Biden.
If Hunter is a dog, as many allege, then his dad, the president, must also be a dog, because it stretches credibility to believe the two of them can keep their lives, work, and political ambitions separate. To the GOP and their minions, any sin Hunter Biden may have committed, immediately implicates his father because well -- they’re related.

Yeah. He really said that!
“There doesn’t have to be a process, as I understand it... You’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it.”

The Trumpublican politicians are concerned about what's going on at the border.
They ignore what's going on within it.

This is what DeSantis hoped his inhumane stunt would deliver:
But there was no "meltdown." The people of Martha's Vineyard treated DeSantis's human pawns as human beings, and showed them love and compassion.
The reality is that the year-round residents of Martha's Vineyard are NOT "rich and famous." The island attracts the wealthy in the few months of summer, but it is a working-class population off-season just like the rest of Cape Cod. The year-round residents are fishermen and other tradesmen and women. It is true that a lot of the real estate is owned by the very wealthy, but the overwhelming population is not the "rich and famous."
I read that one resident who owned a pizza place provided all of the immigrants with pizza for dinner last night. but that's probably not what Faux Nooz meant by a "meltdown."

The good people of Martha's Vineyard welcomed the refugees seeking food, shelter, and human kindness and they were helped by these decent, loving Americans of good will.
DeSantis's stunt will backfire on him.
