As Twitchy reported earlier, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis tweeted Monday that Capitol Police had requested backup from other law enforcement agencies and the National Guard for President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address Tuesday night, but that he wouldn’t be sending the Florida National Guard to D.C. Professional comedian Dean Obeidallah took that as a sign that DeSantis wants another January 6 to happen and he wants it to succeed. They’ve already erected that fence around the Capitol and placed concrete barriers.

A lot of people in the comments told DeSantis to wait for hurricane season, when he’d go begging to FEMA for help. Politico and MSNBC’s Sam Stein had a similar thought: What if DeSantis is elected president in 2024. Would the governor who wouldn’t send National Guard troops to the Capitol withhold federal aid from politicians he didn’t like?

How much damage do they expect at the State of the Union?
