Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday picked up on a report about President Joe Biden’s behind-doors volcanic temper, saying voters could apply it to the Democratic president’s economic agenda.
Axios published a story with the creative headline “Old Yeller,” saying that some of Biden’s aides fear meeting with him alone because he’s often prone to degrading, profanity-laced tirades.
“The president’s admonitions include: ‘God da–it, how the f–k don’t you know this?!,” “Don’t f–king bulls–t me!” and “Get the f–k out of here!” Axios reported.

In a tweet repeating that line, Florida’s Republican governor added, “This is how most Americans feel when the president tells them Bidenomics is working.”
In a second tweet, DeSantis continued, “As president, I will rip up Joe Biden’s failed liberal economic agenda. We cannot settle for a declining standard of living.”
The governor on Monday also touted Biden’s failed economic policies on a podcast hosted by conservatives Clay Travis and Buck Sexton.
DeSantis told the hosts that Bidenomics — the catchphrase that the White House strangely hopes will catch on as shorthand for policies that produced 40-year highs in inflation, record-high gas prices, and the highest interest rates in decades — ultimately means that Americans pay more for a lower standard of living, while the benefits accrue to America’s rivals, such as communist China.

The governor noted that the root of Bidenomics stems back to the COVID-19 lockdowns and “Fauci-ism,” which included “massive” spending, borrowing, and printing of trillions of dollars that began under former President Donald Trump.
“You cannot inject that much borrowing, printing, and spending into the economy and not have persistent inflation,” said DeSantis. “This has really been a government-induced economic crisis, in terms of affordability.”
DeSantis said, if elected, he first would reverse Bidenomics, which essentially represent “the politicization of the economy,” with demands of consumer support for green energy and “economic, social, governance,” or ESG, policies.
“They want you to have to bend a knee to left-wing ideology to participate in the economy,” he said. “That’s not going to work, and it’s going to mean less freedom for everybody and a lower standard of living, too.”
DeSantis also said he would seek to rein in spending by Congress, seek to make America energy independent again, and “rip out” the unelected federal bureaucracy.
