A top Democrat running against Ron DeSantis instantly regretted making this comment about mask mandates on planes

Apr 21, 2022

After more than two years, it’s finally over.

Americans are no longer required by the federal government to wear face masks on airplanes – for now.

And a top Democrat running against Ron DeSantis instantly regretted making this comment about mask mandates on planes.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rose to national fame during the pandemic for his refusal to enforce Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci’s COVID lockdowns and mandates.

DeSantis allowed businesses and schools to remain open during the pandemic, while also banning masks and vaccine mandates in Florida.

However, even though DeSantis banned mask mandates in Florida, since the federal government still controls the airline industry through the Transportation Security Agency, Americans were required to wear a mask while traveling on planes to and from the Sunshine State.

But on Monday, a Trump-appointed U.S. federal judge in Florida overturned the mask mandate on public transportation.

Of course, Ron DeSantis applauded the Florida judge for ending the mandate and allowing Americans to travel on airplanes without having to wear a useless face mask.

But jaws dropped when one of the top Democrats seeking the opportunity to take on DeSantis this fall, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, posted a photo on social media showing her maskless on a plane and offering praise that the mandate was finally over.

“Peace out to the TSA mask mandate, but also peace and respect to others, whether wearing a mask or not,” Fried wrote above a picture of her sitting maskless and giving the peace sign.

But Democrats are the Party of mandates and lockdowns.

And members of the far-left ripped Fried on Twitter for praising the TSA for ending the mask mandate.

Health care advocate Kendall Brown commented, “Hey Nikki, quick question: How is this you showing ‘peace and love’ to the disabled and immunocompromised Floridians you’re asking to vote for you? You know, the people who can no longer even CONSIDER traveling by air (even when necessary) because of the mask mandate repeal?”

“I’m also going to ask for a refund of my donation to your campaign. Peace out,” hospital employee Alexandra Halaby said.

In response, Nikki Fried posted a follow-up message where she made the outrageous claim that “things are getting back to normal” because Democrats “made it possible.”

“I’ll read all your takes, but the mandates are dropped, vaccines are working, things are getting back to normal, and it’s okay for a Democrat to say it – because we made it possible,” Fried claimed in a follow-up post.

“I love y’all,” she added.

Even though Nikki Fried made the outrageous claim that Democrats are the reason “things are getting back to normal,” the Biden administration is appealing the decision to overturn the mask mandate for public transportation.

Democrats flip-flopping all over the place are one of the many reasons why Ron DeSantis is expected to cruise to an easy re-election victory in November.
