Democrats and their media allies are intent on destroying Florida governor Ron De Santis.
He has been the subject of endless hit pieces and attacks.
But DeSantis put all Democrats to shame with one press conference.
Ron DeSantis was out of the public eye for over a week, and that led to wild speculation from the Left.
Some speculated that he had fallen ill from COVID, and others rejoiced at the possibility of his demise.
Others labeled DeSantis an “anti-vaxxer,” even though he is vaccinated, and Florida outpaced many blue states in terms of administering the shot when the vaccines were first rolled out.
The corporate press even wrote a hit piece on DeSantis for getting elderly patients vaccinated so quickly; an NBC News writer argued that DeSantis prioritized the elderly—by far the most at-risk group—in order to secure the voting bloc.
It turns out that DeSantis was with his wife during her cancer treatments, leaving the Democrats with egg on their faces yet again.
DeSantis said during a press conference:
“I’ve accompanied her to all her chemotherapy treatments and she’s there for a long time. I’m there most of the time, but it’s a draining thing. When she’s done with it, it’s not something that’s great to see. And so I just think that a lot of people, particularly people who have gone through breast cancer treatments, the notion that that would be considered a vacation is I think offensive to a lot of those folks, and they understand what you’re doing.”
Democrats fear DeSantis could run for president in 2024, and they don’t have anybody that could beat him.
DeSantis also worked in a dig at Joe Biden:
“I guess I should have been at the beach in Delaware, right? And they would have been really happy with that. We actually put out the schedule, and I think these people didn’t know that. They think because you’re not doing a big press conference you’re not doing [anything].”
Biden went on vacation in Delaware while DeSantis continued to work and attend his wife’s cancer treatments.
One of the Democrats who stoked the flames of speculation was Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“Hasn’t Gov. DeSantis been inexplicably missing for like 2 weeks? If he’s around, I would be happy to say hello. His social media team seems to have been posting old photos for weeks. In the meantime, perhaps I could help with local organizing. Folks are quite receptive here.”
Ocasio-Cortez was also on vacation in Florida, a fact that did not go unnoticed after she was photographed drinking a cocktail at a restaurant without a mask.
Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the biggest pandemic hysterics, yet she was enjoying the freedom of Florida while her city remained under the thumb of the COVID regime.
Democrats’ attempts to destroy DeSantis have only backfired.
People are voting with their feet; Florida has gained hundreds of thousands of new residents since the start of the pandemic.
