Located near Miami, there's been 18 confirmed deaths and a 100 are still missing. It's a time of grief for the families of the dead and missing.
But not for Trump and his minions in the state.
Three-and-a-half hours away from where the tragedy occurred a hate rally is being held in Sarasota.
It's going to feature Trump ranting about his loss in the 2020 election, and the criminal indictment against his company and CFO Allen Weisselberg.
Amid reports that Gov. DeSantis wanted Trump to cancel the rally there appears to be a growing gap behind the two men.
DeSantis denied the reports. Trump's lackeys declined to discuss any differences between the two in the run-up to the Sarasota rally, issuing a statement saying they never planned to postpone the event.
I can't help but seeing the stark contrast between President Joe Biden, and former president Trump. Full of empathy, Biden came to Florida to meet with the families waiting to hear about their relatives fate.
Full of rage, Trump came to Florida to stir up hate and to encourage the insurrectionists following him.
