DeSantis: I Don’t Recall Conspiracy Remark (12:30 p.m. NY)

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said he doesn’t recall a speaker at one of his events on Monday falsely telling a crowd that the Covid-19 vaccine “changes your RNA.”

Darris Friend, a Gainesville employee who rejects his city’s vaccine rules, was a featured speaker at the rally in Newberry, Florida, organized by DeSantis to criticize mandates. Friend delivered the remarks behind a podium with the official state seal, directly next to DeSantis. The governor watched Friend as he spoke, but after the conspiracy-theory comment DeSantis made no effort to correct it.


The left now calls him by the nicknames DeathSantis and DeathSatan because of the evil way he has handled the pandemic in Florida. Beware Americans, this lunatic wants to be the president one day...  ???

You should be careful about assuming that all GQP Cheeto Mussolinists are idiots, though doubtless many are.
De Santis, for instance, is a graduate of Yale and Harvard Law School.
Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, two of the most repellent Tea Partyites and apparent drooling mouth-breathers, also have Ivy degrees (both undergrad - Stanford in Hawley's case - and law school) and distinguished academic records.

One might theorize that these worthies have made certain utility-based calculations.

Please show ne where what you mistakenly call "the left" are saying these non-punning non-jokes worthy of a very slow ten year old. Because a Google search isn't finding then for me and the left I know is capable of actual wit.

Forget it. This dude (ironically) follows GQP logic...no doubt somebody on Facebook, Youtube or Twitter posted that "'the left' is doing/saying such-and-such"...THEREFORE IT HAPPENED!!!

Yes there is a calculated aspect to how Paul, Cruz, Santis etc. engage with their base.  It is not just what they say and how they say it, they adopt a certain persona which is not necessarily their true self.  More like acting a part in a play.

True, but it's not a flattering reflection on either their true self or their integrity

Where did I call DeSantis an idiot? I called him lunatic. Completely different. Also, being a graduate of Yale doesn't tell much. Rich daddy I guess?

I've seen that label for DeSantis quite a bit for the last few months, and mostly from what might be called Democratic mainstream, not the Left.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-09-15/montana-s-largest-hospital-close-to-rationing-life-saving-care

Montana’s largest hospital is considering crisis standards of care procedures that grant authority to decide who receives life-saving treatment, the Billings Gazette reported Wednesday.

Intensive care unit capacity at Billings Clinic is at 150% as Covid-19 rages, the newspaper said.

“If it comes to a point where we have to make those incredibly [difficult] life or death situations, we will have an objective team that will be available to provide council and make those decisions,” said Laurie Smith, chief nursing officer.
