Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on on Sunday where she pointed the finger directly at Governor and for the recent surge in new cases in her state. Florida currently accounts for roughly of new COVID cases in the U.S.
“We have to make sure that we’re stopping the spread of misinformation,” Wasserman Schultz said, “like is spreading rampant on Facebook, some of which is propagated by Ron DeSantis himself, and Fox News, which he spends a lot of time on.”
Fox News hosts their audience from getting vaccinated, and DeSantis has gone so far as to prohibiting local jurisdictions from imposing COVID restrictions, and is selling , like T-shirts that read “Don’t Fauci My Florida.”
“I would rather see us Fauci our Florida than have people go through death by DeSantis, and that's what we're facing now,” Wasserman Schultz said. “He actually had a law passed in Florida to prohibit local governments from being able to enact measures like mask requirements and social distancing to keep people safe. You just can't make this stuff up. So that's where the blame lies, at his feet.”
