Mike Gallagher spent his Monday radio show broadcasting from various locations around southwest Florida after Hurricane Ian ravaged areas of the region last week.

Gallagher has partnered with Food For The Poor, a non-profit relief organization, to bring flood relief and hurricane emergency kits to areas affected by the Category 4 storm.

“This is what radio does best: opening the hearts and wallets of listeners to help fellow Americans they will likely never meet,” Gallagher said. He spent a portion of his show broadcasting from a car dealership in Venice, Florida, which saw several automobiles damaged by falling trees, power lines, and debris.

A Tampa resident, Gallagher was forced to relocate his show to New York last week to remain on the air as Hurricane Ian barreled down on the Florida coast.

Nick Kayal: Joy Reid ‘Queen of Picking Low-Hanging Fruit’

“Don’t be a jerk, don’t go into someone else’s house and ransack their property, and loot and steal. Of course, that’s the opening of the door — the green light — for MSNBC to cry racism and that’s exactly what Joy Reid did.”

During the debut of Kayal and Company on 1210 WPHT in Philadelphia Monday morning, new host Nick Kayal blasted MSNBC host Joy Reid for her weekend comments comparing Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) to prominent segregationists of the 1960s.

During a press conference, DeSantis told reporters Florida residents shouldn’t even think about looting the vacant homes of those evacuated during Hurricane Ian. Reid took to Twitter to point out the racial history of the “when the looting starts, the shooting starts” mindset.

“Don’t be a jerk, don’t go into someone else’s house and ransack their property, and loot and steal. Of course, that’s the opening of the door — the green light — for MSNBC to cry racism and that’s exactly what Joy Reid did. The MSNBC host said Ron DeSantis’ warning to looters in Ian’s aftermath is like a racist threat from segregationist era. Joy Reid is on her show and they’re discussing all the pertinent issues we’re fascinated by. Global warming, climate change, and then of course Hurricane Ian. And then, of course, they’ve got to play the clip of Ron DeSantis and she goes to Twitter — Joy Reid’s personal Twitter page — to bash DeSantis for warning potential criminals against looting the evacuated homes of Hurricane Ian survivors in Florida.”

Kayal then read a portion of a news story describing Reid’s actions in response to the comments made by DeSantis.

“Obviously, Ron DeSantis, clearly a racist,” Kayal said sarcastically. “Clearly going back to the ’60s. Of course, it’s low-hanging fruit. And Joy Reid — the queen of picking low-hanging fruit — immediately goes to her played out, tired card.”
