Florida Governor Ron DeSantis offered some valuable insight into why his state has been constantly demonized by the Biden administration and its media attack dogs which he believes is rooted in the nation’s 46th president’s failure do deliver on his campaign promises to defeat COVID.
DeSantis sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Mark Levin on his Fox News Show Life, Liberty & Levin where he discussed the administration’s refusal to embrace such treatment options as monoclonal antibody therapy which has been a critical element of the Sunshine State’s success in terms of keeping those infected with the virus out of hospitals and ultimately saving lives while the White House has focused on mass vaccinations.
During the interview which aired Sunday evening, DeSantis suggested that the real reason for the ongoing trashing of states like Florida and Texas is that Biden is looking for scapegoats in order to distract from his own abysmal results on containing COVID despite his insistence that he was better suited to get the pandemic under control and restore the country to normalcy than former President Donald J. Trump.
Levin pointed out that Biden, his top medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci as well as the media have avoided talking about the option of mAb, asking the governor whether such an omission was a “grave disservice to the American people and the health care system.”
DeSantis responded, “I think when you look back at how the pandemic was handled there will be a whole host of cardinal sins but some of the chief ones will be the school closures, kids are locked out of school for over a year, we have schools closed now in parts of the country, unbelievably,”
“The extended lockdowns, the lockdowns were a disaster, but not focusing on treatment from the very beginning was a huge mistake and Fauci and people like him are absolutely to blame for this and so, once we did get these treatments on-line through the private sector, to ignore them and to put all your eggs in one basket was a fundamental mistake,” he said.
DeSantis continued, “Now the question is, Biden did mention it once, he mentioned it after, right before they cut our supply, he said we’re gonna ramp up monoclonal antibodies and then he turns around and cuts the supply, we’ve not seen the ramp up, he had months and months after this was demonstrated to be effective, to be ready for this and we haven’t seen that. I don’t think they’re ultimately gonna embrace it, I think that they just have tunnel vision in terms of how they want to handle this, it hasn’t worked, obviously.”
He added, “Remember, he demagogued Donald Trump during the campaign, saying Trump was to blame for COVID even though China was to blame for COVID, saying Biden would shut down the virus if he was elected president, it was a ridiculous thing to say, it was demagogic.”
“He gets in and now you see, cases and all this like no one ever anticipated was even possible and so that’s kind of his central promise of his campaign totally up in smoke and so I think as a result of that they try to find scapegoats and I think trying to fight with Florida or Texas is just one of the things that they do to divert attention from their failure,” DeSantis said.
In an October 2020 tweet that hasn’t aged well, Biden vowed to “shut down the virus.”
I'm not going to shut down the country.
I'm not going to shut down the economy.
I'm going to shut down the virus.
— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 30, 2020
Nearly one year into his presidency, it’s clear that Biden hasn’t shut down COVID and with Democrat-controlled areas once again shuttering schools and sports and entertainment events being canceled like it was March 2020, the country is going in reverse.
DeSantis and Florida remain the gold standard when it comes to managing the unprecedented health crisis while protecting rights and not shutting down the economy and he remains a very serious threat to Democrats in 2024 if Trump doesn’t mount another run for the White House.
