Ron DeSantis gave a group of students a real-world lesson in politics they will never forget
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has become a rock star in the Republican Party.
DeSantis’ no-nonsense approach to Joe Biden’s tyrannical COVID mandates has many hoping the Governor will run for the White House in 2024.
And Ron DeSantis gave a group of students a real-world lesson in politics they will never forget.
One thing Ron DeSantis has proven over and over again is that he will not hide his opinion no matter how unpopular it makes him.
DeSantis showed a group of students how little he cares for the virtue signaling that has become so very common since the pandemic started.
In a video clip that has now gone viral, the Governor can be heard telling a group of high school students to take off their face masks and stop engaging in “COVID theater.”
“You do not have to wear those masks,” the Governor can be heard saying as he approaches the students.
DeSantis has repeatedly stated his distaste for mask and vaccine mandates.
The Governor wasn’t done though.
“Please take them off. Honestly, it’s not doing anything. We’ve gotta stop with this Covid theater. So if you wanna wear it, fine, but this is ridiculous,” DeSantis concluded.

The clip immediately went viral, receiving praise from conservatives on Twitter.
“This is phenomenal. Ron Desantis [sic] tells USF kids they don’t have to wear their masks because they don’t do anything and it’s time to stop with all the political theater,” Outkick.com founder Clay Travis posted.
The closer the Midterm elections get, the more Democrats seem to be backing off the calls for vaccine mandates and mandatory masking.
However, some are still holding on to the “virtue signaling” and almost seem to be doubling down.
But most Americans were done playing the mask game a long time ago.
“This is the correct attitude toward mask wearing,” radio host and former CIA analyst Buck Sexton posted.
Leftists, not surprisingly, took to Twitter accusing the Governor of berating the students.
But anyone who actually watches the video can see the students laughing, clearly showing that DeSantis was not berating any of them.
“The kids laughed after he said it. They knew he wasn’t frustrated with them but with the peer pressure around masking in schools,” DeSantis spokesperson Christina Pushaw told Fox News.
Unfortunately, wearing a mask has become a symbol of “coolness” among some kids, proving just how much damage the Biden regime has done to the generation growing up in this political stunt of a pandemic.
One can only hope they’ll understand, sooner rather than later, how harmful the actions of the Left have been.
