The governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, joked in an interview on Wednesday about the recent cocaine find at the White House.
On Sunday, the Secret Service discovered some cocaine at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. An agent from the Secret Service found the material in the West Wing, and the building was cleared. White powder can be many different types of hazardous substances.
Authorities sent in a hazmat team to identify the powder. During the lockdown, the Secret Service also shut down roadways near the White House.
Authorities are still seeking the culprit who carried the drug inside the White House. Joe Biden, the nation’s President, was out of town.
In an interview on OutKick’s “Tomi Lahren is Fearless,” DeSantis downplayed the significance of the drug’s discovery, but he couldn’t help but lob in double entendres.
DeSantis quipped the Biden administration has been “blowing it” on many fronts. He said many Americans feel that way. Speaking about his residence and home life, DeSantis said he could tell you that in Florida, he and his wife have a 6-, 5-, and 3-year-old running around the Governor’s Mansion, so cocaine is not something they see. He alludes (with the “children” parallel to Biden’s “children”) to Hunter being responsible for the cocaine found.
He said they have to scrape slime out of the carpet and remove marker off the wallpaper periodically, but that’s the limit of their adventures at the Governor’s Mansion.
Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, a Republican, wrote to the Secret Service on Wednesday asking that the identities of those having access to the West Wing be made public.
In a letter, the Republican senator said that public records show that the Secret Service didn’t confirm the location in the West Wing where the cocaine was found. He demanded that the Secret Service make the findings public as soon as possible, saying that the American people have a right to know whether or not illegal substances were discovered in a secure location.
