Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Hosts Backyard MAGA Festival, May Be Next Coronavirus Fiasco

Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida Republican leaders on Saturday transformed the backyard of the governor’s mansion into a GOP gloatfest with an epidemic-like twist.

Some of the leading players in the Sunlight State’s corona virus chaos party have posted photos and a video of DeSantis on Twitter to a crowd of roughly 50 GOP core organizers. Almost no one wore a mask – including DeSantis, who appeared with a mask at Donald Trump’s strange vaccination summit in DC on Tuesday.

One of the pictures tweeted Christian Florida Ziegler, vice president of the Florida Republican Party, shows a disguised DeSantis from behind, in front of his guests, most of whom were elderly – a particularly high risk of death through COVID-19. Ziegler boasted, “Florida is in great hands, and everyone in this picture is going to work hell to smash anyone running against them to keep going.

GOP official retweeted the same photo the next day. This time, he identified another reliable target for Republicans and DeSantis: “It will be a lot of fun for him to work and crush the Socialists in Florida.”

Florida GOP President Joe Gruters, a provincial senator, tweeted from another angle about a photograph of the crowd standing next to the governor. Gruters wrote: “Thank you to Governor @GovRonDeSantis for loving freedom and freedom and for all your help in achieving record success in this cycle here in Florida.”

Gruters also tweeted a two-minute clip from DeSantis, who cunningly suggested continuing to support the current commander-in-chief’s false account that Joe Biden won the presidency only because of massive election fraud.

“In Florida, people can trust that [election] over the deck and they did well, ”DeSantis moaned. “We don’t wait three weeks and then exchange votes for the winner, and all the things you see are going around.”

Gruters, Ziegler, and the GOP foot soldiers spun up, cheering their governor. But aside from MAGA’s conspiracies, the scene was a compelling antecedent to the problem a new Biden administration faces in coronavirus-skeptical states like Florida, where DeSantis has tripled its strategy of mocking mask assignments and non-core business shutdowns. and allows for large gatherings. people.
