DeSantis: Florida Chooses Freedom Over Faucism
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) slams Biden's chief medical adviser over handling of coronavirus in light of recent email revelations. DeSantis said Thursday on FOX News' "Ingraham Angle" that Fauci spent so much time on interviews it was instantly clear to him that "this was all about himself and his own image."
"In Florida we choose freedom over Faucism and we are much better off for doing that," DeSantis said to FNC host Laura Ingraham. "His lockdown policies were not justified by the scientific data. He was somebody that fearmongered about schools. He did not support Florida when we had our kids in school in person. I think he was wrong about masks and asymptomatic spread."
"He did so many interviews that it was clear to me after pretty short time this was all about himself and his own image and for me, a look at that magazine cover it with him lounging by the pool with the sunglasses on, you know, right in the midst of a pandemic and it was almost like a let them eat cake moment for all of the people who were chaffing under his lockdowns and get he seemed to be having the time of his life," the governor said.
The photo DeSantis was referring to is of Fauci sitting by the pool for the magazine "InStyle."
