(PatrioticPost.com)- Popular Republican Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis absolutely torched President Joe Biden this week when he hit back at demands that get “get out of the way” and let the White House and Democrats impose mask mandates and vaccine passports on the people of his state.
Following comments made by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday, in which she wrongly blamed an increase in COVID cases in the state on the governor, DeSantis hit back and revealed precisely why it’s time for the Biden administration to start protecting the American people.
Psaki said that 20% of the new cases of COVID-19 are coming from Florida, and said that people in the state should be getting vaccinated and politicians should be encouraging people to wear masks and even allow schools to force children to wear masks. But she said nothing about the influx of a million illegal aliens over the border since Biden entered the White House, many of whom are unvaccinated and flooding into southern states like Florida.
Psaki said that at some point, Republican leaders like DeSantis will need to choose between following “politics” or public health guidelines.
In a statement, DeSantis’ press office slammed Psaki of playing politics with the pandemic, by ignoring the measures taken by Governor DeSantis to protect vulnerable Floridians.
The statement said that the Biden White House should be more concerned about the Centers for Disease Control’s flip-flopping on mask mandates, which is promoting vaccine hesitancy by suggesting that the vaccines don’t wear as they’re meant to.
If the White House wants people to take the vaccine, then why aren’t they proving to the country that they work by recommending vaccinated people no longer wear masks in public.
Governor DeSantis also recently signed an executive order that gives parents the right to choose whether or not their children wear masks in school, overriding decisions made by politically motivated school boards in the state who have stated that they intend to force young children to wear masks when they return to in-person learning at the end of summer.
