Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) just steamrolled President Joe Biden in a war of words — although Biden appears to have come to the battle unarmed.
DeSantis previously claimed Biden was upset with him because the president had criticized the Florida governor for standing in “the way” when it comes to combating COVID-19. DeSantis responded, “If you’re coming after rights of parents in Florida, I’m standing in your way. I’m not going to let you get away with it.”
According to Breitbart, when confronted with DeSantis’ defiance, Biden retorted: “Governor who?”

DeSantis’ counterattack was appropriately brutal — and hilarious.
“I guess I’m not surprised that Biden doesn’t remember me,” DeSantis said, as Breitbart reported. “I guess the question is, is what else has he forgotten? Biden’s forgotten our crisis at the southern border, I can tell you that.”
BREAKING: @GovRonDeSantis responds to Biden’s “Governor Who?” jab with another EPIC beatdown.
“What else has Biden forgotten? The Border. Inflation. Cuban Freedom Fighters. The Constitution?
I’m the GOVERNOR WHO protects parents, jobs and answers to Floridians, not DC”
