As Hurricane Ian chugs toward Florida and has the potential to wreak havoc as it plows through the state, Rachel Vindman, wife of Alexander S. Vindman, posted a tweet jokingly suggesting that people prepare for the Sturm using “they/them” pronouns in an attempt to irritate GOP Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
“We should use she/them pronouns for Hurricane Ian to annoy DeSantis,” said Rachel Vindman tweeted on Tuesday morning. “I appreciate the danger of this storm, which only serves to underscore the point that leaders are being elected who only divert their attention from destroying systems [in order to score political points] in emergencies, is not helpful when it is a real crisis,” she added in another tweet.
In another postVindman, the co-host of The Suburban Women Problem podcast, said her tweet was “not a hurricane joke” but “a DeSantis joke because DeSantis is a joke.”
DeSantis who taking office in 2019, is currently running for re-election during the state’s 2022 gubernatorial race.
The hurricane could cause serious damage in the Sunshine State. The National Hurricane Center has warned of “life-threatening storm surges, catastrophic winds and flooding.” [are] Expected on the Florida Peninsula.”
“Prior to #HurricaneIan, 5,000 Florida Guardsmen were activated and pre-positioned in armories across the state to serve Floridas and conduct response operations. Thank you for your service to our state.” tweet in DeSantis’ @GovRonDeSantis Twitter account notes.
Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar (Minnesota) mentioned the hurricane Tuesday and said Democrats need to win during the midterm elections. “We just took action on climate change for the first time in decades. So we have to win this, while this hurricane hits Florida, we have to win in the midterms,” said Klobuchar said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”.
