Ron DeSantis delivers anti-Biden red meat during Sunday TV hit

DeSantis Fox News
The Governor does not do traditional Sunday shows, preferring Fox News hits.

On Sunday, Gov. Ron DeSantis laid into President Joe Biden during another one-sided interview on Fox News.

DeSantis does not do traditional Sunday broadcast shows, but he returned to “Sunday Morning Futures” with Mario Bartiromo to score points against supply chain breakdowns, federal vaccine mandates, and other flashpoints of Biden policy, consolidating themes established in news conferences the week before for a national audience.

About the ports issue, DeSantis said nothing he didn’t say last week. He reiterated that Florida has “capacity” and that Florida ports always “do 24/7” while expressing familiar worries about inflation hampering Christmas. DeSantis did not offer any assurances here that Florida could save Christmas.

DeSantis pushed back against the potential of using the National Guard to help with offloading as President Biden suggested, saying “there is no need to do that in Florida.”

“What he should be doing is sending them to the Southern Border to get it under control,” DeSantis chided.

Turning to vaccine mandates, DeSantis was able to juxtapose Florida’s actions against Washington’s yet again.

“We’ve been able to fight back very effectively against mandates imposed by local governments,” DeSantis said.

“What Biden’s doing is unconstitutional,” DeSantis said, adding that “huge disruptions” will hit the economy because of displaced workers. This will not happen in Florida, where he called a Special Session to counter vaccine mandates and enshrine into law parents’ rights to opt-out of mask requirements.

“Nobody should lose their jobs based on these injections,” DeSantis said of the vaccine before going on to introduce new evidence without saying from where it came.

“Most of those first responders have had COVID and recovered,” DeSantis added, saying that Florida would continue to push to recruit out-of-state law enforcement.

“NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle. If you’re not being treated well, we’ll treat you better here,” DeSantis said, referring to $5,000 signing bonuses he wants the Legislature to approve for new cops.

The Governor took a break from TV hits in recent weeks but recently stepped up his schedule. Before a trip to California Friday, the Governor interviewed with Tucker Carlson, effectively counterprogramming a Biden CNN Town Hall event.

On Saturday, Florida Politics reported that Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo had refused to put a mask on while in the office of Sen. Tina Polsky, who is undergoing cancer treatment, despite Polsky repeatedly urging him to do so. Republican Senate President Wilton Simpson expressed disapproval with a memo asserting that senators have the right to dictate mask usage in their offices.

That incident became news as DeSantis was in California for political obligations, including being the guest of honor at a dinner at the conservative Claremont Institute Saturday evening.

Bartiromo did not ask the Governor for his take on the Ladapo mask flap.

The Governor tweeted that the interview was “live.” Neither the Friday nor Saturday iterations of the Governor’s schedule have a TV taping listed.

    Yes, DeSantis and Company have “been able to fight back very effectively against (vaccine) mandates” — and they’ve got the death count to prove it! Human Sacrifice hasn’t been this popular in a long time! Thanks, Ronnie, for bringing it back. We’re Number One!

    Wonderful interview. He’s growing and interviewing much better.
    Unlike CNN, and fake newsie cooper andersen with coddled sleepy Joe. What an embarrassment. Pre screened questions in advance. Shameful.

    An actual Governor who thinks, read science and solves problems, who keeps Florida’s economy m mn thriving, Schools open, jobs employment low, society thriving.

    Saves lives, reduces and offers 25 centers of Covid monoclonal Heath centers. Covid down 90%, Florida thriving.

    America’s Governor offers Jax/port and other Florida access for supply chain.

    DeSantis saves Christmas and America.

    Masks are designed to be worn during an operation. The purpose is to prevent one of the medical professionals from accidently coughing or spitting in a open wound. that is ALL that they are good for…period!

    If Ron Desantis doesn’t run for POTUS he’d make a great Vice President to another America First President maybe Trump maybe a big surprise!

    It was not a “red meat” interview. What a biased
    warped interpretation. The Governor made many great points that are irrefutable.

    MoRon DuhSantis is a lightweight trump bootlicker. Covid will ruin him just like it did trump. One of Florida’s worst governors of all time. Completely tone deaf and truly does not care a lick about the well being of Floridians. Or science. Or facts.
