Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis’ office mocked Democrat President Joe Biden on Thursday after Biden responded to a question about DeSantis by asking “governor who? … that’s my response.”
DeSantis responded on Wednesday to an attack from Biden earlier in the week when Biden suggested that DeSantis “get out of the way.” In a fiery speech that went viral, DeSantis said that he was standing in Biden’s way in order to protect people’s freedoms.
Biden was asked about DeSantis’ remarks on Thursday afternoon, to which he responded, “governor who?”
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. Biden then added, “that’s my response.”
DeSantis Press Secretary Christina Pushaw responded to Biden’s remark by telling The Daily Wire: “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.”
