Gov. DeSantis endorses ’60 Minutes of Lies’ shirt

"I know I'll be ordering mine," the Governor tweeted.

Interested in dressing like Ron DeSantis?

You don’t have to buy a business suit or a state of Florida crisis windbreaker when a simple t-shirt will do.

The first-term Republican Governor endorsed a new t-shirt from the conservative sports talk show Outkick on Twitter Friday.

But it’s not just any tee: This shirt offers caustic commentary on a critical “60 Minutes story about DeSantis’ vaccine distribution efforts. The story suggested linkage between a sizable Publix donation to DeSantis’ political committee and the store being used to roll out vaccines, a relationship DeSantis has decried as “horse manure perpetrated by so-called “smear merchants.”

But until now, there was not a garment to meet the moment.

“I know I’ll be ordering mine,” DeSantis quote tweeted, spotlighting the new “60 Minutes of Lies” shirt available now on Outkick’s online store.

While DeSantis has at times said he doesn’t write his own tweets, one suspects he will happily claim authorship of this one, which stretches out the 60 Minutes news cycle into what is now Day 6.

The page hawking the shirt includes a link to an article by Outkick’s Bobby Burack, which echoed DeSantis’ own slashing arguments against the program.

“Some people lie and feel guilty. The media lies and feels proud,” Burack wrote.

While the Governor may be ordering the shirt, the 4.3 ounce garment doesn’t appear to have been designed with the humidity of a Tallahassee summer in mind, eschewing breathable natural fibers for synthetics.

It is 50% polyester and 25% rayon, and just 25% cotton, so if DeSantis does wear it, it will likely be for a photo-op and not much longer.

Despite the synthetic fabrics, the Outkick shirt comes with a premium price tag, ranging from $24.99 for smaller sizes to $27.99 for extended sizes running up to 3X.

The CBS news magazine, meanwhile, continues to stand by its product, which asserted that vaccine access in rural parts of Palm Beach County, routed almost exclusively through Publix for a period of time, was not uniform in the early rollout.

“When Florida state data revealed people of color were vaccinated at a much lower rate than their wealthier neighbors, 60 MINUTES reported the facts surrounding the vaccines rollout, which is controlled by the governor,” a statement released Tuesday asserted.

    Man is DuhSantis still harping on this story. Why’s he always bringing up old stuff??

    “you can talk to my staff about what my words are”… sounds legit

    Part of the problem is Ronnie doesn’t do substantive interviews or answer questions at “press” events. He only goes on to Faux news to complain about mainstream media or whatever’s got his panties in a twist that day. Then he goes berserker mode when somebody gets his words twisted as he claims.

    Don’t you have to say something for somebody to get it wrong? Our governor might as well be in a straight jacket with duct tape over his mouth. I’m all about “staying on message” but this is ridiculous. If I want to know what Ronnie’s thinking I’ll ask Trump.

      And there you have it. Libtard fools like you who continue to believe the BS pushed by left wing news media.
      Things like taking away guns from law abiding citizens will lower crime…..as opposed to actually punishing criminals.
      Or that requiring IDs to vote is rekindling Jim Crow laws which is completely absurd.
      Or in this particular case, splicing and editing video together to paint a completely false picture of an interview.

      Get your head out of the sand. The DemonRat Party and their partners(big media and social media) don’t care about you at all. They just want to control you and everyone else and don’t care who they hurt to get that control.

    Gov Desantis is the only governor that balanced the pandemic and people’s livelihood. Democrats wants to smear him as people are noticing the good job he did. Democrats have Coumo, Newsom and Whitmer. THEY ARE ALL FAILURES!
