Ron DeSantis’ coronavirus response is a remarkable success story.
And Democrats will do anything to destroy his accomplishment.
Democrats hope this shocking edited video can take down Ron DeSantis.
CBS’s “60 Minutes” ran a segment on Florida’s COVID vaccination which was in reality just a hit piece against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
They claimed that the governor awarded the supermarket chain Publix a vaccine contract in exchange for campaign funds and showed an edited exchange with a reported out of its original context to make him look more guilty.
60 Minutes edited a clip of its correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi and DeSantis to make it look as if DeSantis was dodging a question.
“Publix, as you know, donated $100,000 to your campaign,” Alfonsi angrily says. “And then you rewarded them with the exclusive rights to distribute the vaccination in Palm Beach. –”
“First, of all what you’re saying is wrong,” DeSantis fires back.
“How is that not pay for play?” Alfonsi shouts back.
“That’s a fake narrative,” DeSantis explains. “I met with the county mayor, I met with the administrator, I met with all the folks at Palm Beach County and I said, ‘Here’s some of the options: We can do more drive-thru sites, we can give more to hospitals, we can do the Publix.’ And they said, ‘We think that would be the easiest thing for our residents.’”
Alfonsi shouted that Palm Beach County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay claimed DeSantis “never met with her about the Publix deal.”
“And it’s wrong, it’s wrong,” DeSantis replies. “It’s a fake narrative. I just disabused you of the narrative. And you don’t care about the facts. Because, obviously, I laid it out for you in a way that is irrefutable.”
CBS claims that they cut out DeSantis’s response for “clarity.”
Palm Beach Mayor Dave Kerner, a Democrat, said the information in the segment was “intentionally false” and added that he offered to refute the report but was declined by the CBS
“I watched the 60 Minutes segment on Palm Beach County last night and feel compelled to issue this statement. The reporting was not just based on bad information—it was intentionally false,” the statement read. “I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County’s vaccination efforts and 60 minutes declined.”
DeSantis responded “They cut out everything that showed that their narrative was a piece of horse manure and it shows you how dishonest, these are smear merchants – that’s why nobody trusts corporate media. They are a disaster in what they are doing. They knew what they were doing was a lie. I knew what they were doing was a lie. Everybody here knows what they were doing is a lie. They know that we know they’re lying and yet they continue to lie.”
