Governor Ron DeSantis is absolutely the rising star of the Republican Party 2021. As he strengthens his war on the leftists, cancel-culture oppression and Big Tech tyranny, he restores the spirits of the battered Republican party. His latest move? The Flordia Governor announced that he will pardon ANYONE in Florida who is charged with defying COVID rules. This includes people refusing to wear masks or social distance.
DeSantis Strengthens Protections Against COVID-Mania
Gov. DeSantis made this announcement while speaking with Florida Gym owners Jillian and Mike on Fox’s ‘The Ingraham Angle’. Mike has been arrested FOUR TIMES and his wife Jillian once. Mike was looking at 6 months in prison. Despite DeSantis’ release of mask mandates and other COVID restrictions several counties including Broward county have worked to defy him and the State legislature.
Gov. DeSantis told Laura Ingraham,
“Well, it’s a total overreach, Laura. This is exactly what we ordered against last summer many, many months ago and so i was actually just recently briefed on this case and we looked at it and so i’m glad you have mike and jillian on.
And I’m Also so glad to be on to be able to say that effective tomorrow morning, I’m going to sign a reprieve under my constitutional authority, so that will delay the case for 60 days against both of them.
and then when our clemency board meets in the coming weeks, we will issue pardons not only for Mike and Jillian, but for any Floridian who may have outstanding infractions for things like masks and social distancing.”
Gov. DeSantis continued, telling the stunned couple, their attorney and host Laura Ingraham, “It’s not even right to be wearing masks when you’re exercising. The world health organization’s advise it against it. It’s unhealthy for people to be doing that in the first place, so it was a bad restriction, but these things with health should be advisory, they should not be punitive and so we are happy to use our constitutional authority.”
Another Interesting Flex From DeSantis
Governor Ron DeSantis is displaying a type of media-savvy that seems to have eluded many politicians on both sides of the aisle. It is a very interesting flex for him to put his uppity counties in their place by nullifying them on national television. Hi appearance on the Ingraham angle was very similar to his rollout of the Florida Election Integrity bill SB90 on Fox & Friends.
