The Biden administration and the corporate media have singled out DeSantis as a problem for their Covid-19 strategy, since the Florida Republican has ruled out mask mandates and vaccination passports. On Tuesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said he should “get out of the way” of public health experts.
Speaking on Wednesday, DeSantis said he doesn’t want to hear lectures from the administration that’s letting in illegal immigrants infected with Covid-19 through the “wide open southern border.”

President Joe Biden’s big solution to the uptick in Covid-19 cases is to “have the government force kindergartners to wear masks in school,” DeSantis thundered, pointing out that one of his medical advisers – National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins – had just called for parents to wear masks at home around their children. “This is insane,” the governor added.
Collins backtracked on his comment to CNN after backlash from the public.
Biden “rejects science” by denying that people who’ve had Covid-19 have natural immunity, DeSantis continued, and seeks to mandate vaccines instead. By contrast, Florida prioritized senior citizens and decided to make the vaccines available to all, but not mandatory for anybody.
He also took aim at New York City’s just-announced vaccine pass, pointing out that the Democrats in favor of such mandates call voter ID requirements “racist.”
