As Twitchy reported earlier, the fence is going back up around the Capitol Building for President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address to Congress. The Capitol Police chief also has reportedly requested support from outside law enforcement agencies and the National Guard.

Gov. Ron DeSantis let us know via social media on Monday that he won’t be sending any troops from the Florida National Guard to the Capitol.
Last week, the Biden Administration requested the assistance of State National Guards to deploy to Washington D.C. I have rejected this request — there will be no @FLGuard sent to D.C. for Biden’s State of the Union.

Remember how well they were treated when they were called in to fortify the Capitol after January 6? They were sleeping in parking garages; CNN’s Jake Tapper even reached out to “whoever in D.C. is in charge of this National-Guard-sleeping-in-a-Senate-parking-lot mess” — folks with empty hotel rooms were contacting him.
Thank you, Governor. The National Guard isn't to be used as Regime's political pawns.

Genius and comedian Dean Obeidallah says this is proof that DeSantis is FAR more dangerous than Donald Trump.
Wow Ron DeSantis seeks to make the National Guard his own political militia. He wants another Jan 6 attack and this time he wants it to succeed. I've said this before and will repeat: Ron DeSantis is FAR more dangerous than Donald Trump.

Most people in the replies are telling DeSantis not to expect any help from FEMA this hurricane season.
