Joe Biden should just do what he does best — sit in his basement in Delaware and leave the rest of us alone.
That being said, when he does finally emerge, the minute he opens his mouth something funny happens.
The office of Republican Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis mocked Joe Biden on Thursday after Biden responded to a question about the Governor by asking “governor who? … that’s my response.”
On Wednesday, DeSantis defended himself against a recent attack from Biden when he suggested that Republicans “get out of the way” of the federal government as they continue their push to vaccinate, mask, and lockdown the country.
DeSantis delivered an awe-inspiring takedown of the cognitively-deficient president, saying, “If you’re going to try and deny kids a proper in-person education, I’m going to stand in your way.

Biden was asked by a reporter about DeSantis’ speech on Thursday afternoon, which the president gave a snide response to.
Biden immediately broke out laughing as did others who were standing behind the camera that was recording the president, likely indicating that those who were laughing were reporters.
DeSantis’ Press Secretary Christina Pushaw responded to Biden’s remark by telling a reporter “It would be more convincing if he hadn’t spent the previous 2 days attacking DeSantis.”
“Guess he realized DeSantis isn’t the guy he wants to pick a fight with,” Pushaw added.

Chad Gilmartin, communications aide for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), noted in a tweet responding to the incident that Biden’s remark comes after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said earlier in the day that the situation regarding the pandemic was “too deadly serious to be doing partisan name-calling.”

Biden mocked Republican governors earlier this year as having “Neanderthal thinking” because they lifted mask mandates in their states.
