    A video of a Florida man went viral on social media Monday as the man, who said he was a Democrat, praised Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis' response to Hurricane Ian.

    The video comes after a local news station claimed in a disputed report on Sunday night that certain relief aid was paused to the town of Arcadia while DeSantis surveyed the damage.

    "That gas is here in Arcadia," the man said. "I don't know about the rest of y'all but it's here in Arcadia."

    "So, y'all know who we're voting for," the man continued. "I don't know about the rest of you motherf***ers, but I'm voting for DeSantis, and I'm a Democrat! So y'all call it whatever the f*** you want to call it.


    The disputed report from Michael Paluska at ABC Action News, which was promoted by Florida Politics Publisher Peter Schorsch, was titled, "Civilians furious as relief operations paused while Governor Ron DeSantis toured hard-hit Arcadia."

    "This is an absolute lie pushed by @MichaelPaluska and amplified by Peter," DeSantis Deputy Press Secretary Jeremy Redfern tweeted. "Not a single operation was paused while the governor was on the ground. @DesotoCoSheriff and @JackBrewerBSI will confirm. The Sheriff literally posted about the Governor's visit yesterday."

    Redfern posted a screenshot of a post from DeSoto County Sheriff's Office that stated: "Today, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and DeSoto County Sheriff Potter traveled by boat through areas in DeSoto tragically affected by Hurricane Ian."

    "While they discussed plans moving forward, operations have staying rolling the entire time," the post continued. "Citizens have received ice and various resources within the city, and supply operations on the river have been nonstop."

    Former NFL player Jack Brewer, who was also mentioned in Redfern's tweet, was the other man seen in the viral video posted above.

    Brewer responded to the disputed claims from ABC Action News by posting the video clip again, writing, "This is a lie. Ask Johnny if the aid stopped!!"

    The Florida Democratic Party pounced on the report, tweeting, "Much needed aid blocked from being delivered so that DeSantis could preen and pose for photos in campaign attire. Even in the wake of a devastating loss of lives, historic property damage, and flooding, DeSantis cares more about polishing his public image than helping Floridians."

    Brewer called out the tweet from the Florida Democratic Party, writing, "Sickening and evil.. Devilish lies."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
