Ron DeSantis eviscerated Joe Biden with one promise that made Americans stand up and cheer
Ron DeSantis and Joe Biden have been on a collision course over COVID ever since Joe Biden took office.
Their fight is coming to a head.
And Ron DeSantis eviscerated Joe Biden with one promise that made Americans stand up and cheer.
Despite no science showing the omicron variant is a more dangerous version of the coronavirus and the doctors in South Africa who discovered the variant saying the illnesses were mild, Joe Biden refused to rule out new lockdowns.
Biden told the nation that unless Americans wore masks and got vaccinated, Biden may impose a national lockdown.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did not take kindly to that suggestion.
At a press conference in Orlando, Governor DeSantis pledged there would be no lockdowns in the state of Florida and that the government would not infringe on individual liberty.
“We’re not in Florida, going to allow any media-driven hysteria to do anything to infringe people’s individual freedoms when it comes to any type of COVID variants,” DeSantis stated.
Governor DeSantis took aim at Dr. Fauci and Joe Biden equivocating over future lockdowns and took the time to assure Floridians there would be no shutdown in the Sunshine State.
“And when I saw Fauci on TV yesterday saying that he couldn’t rule out lockdowns, and even today President Biden didn’t rule it out. He said no not now, for now. And let me just say, in Florida, we will not let them lock you down,” Governor DeSantis declared.
Governor DeSantis noted that lockdowns and mask and vaccine mandates failed to slow the spread of the coronavirus, which spreads seasonally when the weather forces Americans to spend more time indoors.
“We will not let them take your jobs. We will not let them harm your businesses. We will not let them close your schools. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. The lockdowns didn’t stop COVID,” Governor DeSantis concluded.
Governor DeSantis became a national star in Republican politics by resisting COVID mandates and lockdowns.
Polls show Governor DeSantis in a strong position to win re-election in 2022 and enter the 2024 GOP Presidential race as the frontrunner should Donald Trump not run for office.
Joe Biden picked a fight with DeSantis over COVID hoping to chop DeSantis down to size.
But that turned into a horrible miscalculation on Biden’s part.
