Florida Governor Ron DeSantis went total beast mode on Democrats and the media. In a state that has 2 million more people than New York they have seen less death and fewer cases.
On Wednesday Gov. DeSantis was with Vice President Pence and during a session with the media DeSantis went off.
“Our data is available, our data is transparent, in fact Dr. Birx has talked multiple times about how Florida has the absolute best data, so any insinuation otherwise is just typical partisan narrative trying to be spun,” DeSantis said.
“And part of the reason is because you got a lot of people in your profession who waxed poetically for weeks and weeks about how Florida was going to be just like New York: wait two weeks Florida’s going to be next, just like Italy, wait two weeks.”
“Well hell, we’re eight weeks away from that, and it hasn’t happened. Not only do we have a lower death rate–well we have way lower deaths generally–we have a lower death rate than the Acela Corridor, DC, everyone up there,” the governor continued.
Tell them Governor. Florida is open for business! https://t.co/PQ9flYonFD

“We have a lower death rate than the Midwest–Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio–but even in our region Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia–Florida has the lower death rate. And I was the number one landing spot from tens of thousands of people leaving the number one hot zone in the world to come to my state.”
He concluded, “So we’ve succeeded and I think that people just don’t want to recognize it because it challenges their narrative, it challenges their assumption, so they got to try to find a boogeyman–maybe it’s that there are black helicopter circling the Department of Health. If you believe that, I got a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.”
DeSantis is right and here is some data…
Florida And Georgia:
How many times did the “experts” and hysterical media scream that there would be “mass death!” in these states after early reopening?
Data for FL & GA:
– Cases declining
– Death rate declining
– Death rate lower than 0.05%
(⭕️ = reopening date)
