Last July, Ron DeSantis issued an Executive Order banning mask mandates in Florida’s schools and classrooms.
This infuriated the radical Left.
But now all hell is breaking loose after Ron DeSantis exposed the truth about masks to a group of high school students.
Ron DeSantis rose quickly to rock star status among Republican voters nationwide for his willingness to stand up to Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci’s COVID fascism during the entire course of the pandemic.
From day one, DeSantis refused to go along with the lockdowns and mandates, keeping Florida’s businesses and schools open while other states forced them to close their doors and shut down for weeks at a time.
DeSantis also pushed pro-freedom policies, issuing an executive order banning mask mandates in Florida’s government schools.
He also banned vaccine mandates in the Sunshine State and promoted the early use of monoclonal antibodies as an effective treatment against COVID.
Of course, the Democrats and the Fake News Media viciously attacked Ron DeSantis over his pro-freedom policies.
They called him “Ron DeathSantis” and falsely accused him of trying to kill innocent people for pure political purposes.
And now all hell is breaking loose after Ron DeSantis dropped a truth bomb on a group of high school students about the effectiveness of wearing a cloth mask before a recent press conference in Tampa.
“You do not have to wear those masks,” DeSantis told students Wednesday as he walked up to a podium at the University of South Florida.
“Please, take them off,” he continued. “Honestly, it’s not doing anything. We’ve gotta stop with this COVID theater. So if you want to wear it, fine, but this is ridiculous.”

Within moments, the Fake News Media was accusing Ron DeSantis of “berating” and “bullying” high school students for simply telling them that they could take off their masks if they wanted to.
“What a punk a– move to get loud with kids who aren’t in a position to tell you to f–k off,” CNN+ host Jemele Hill wrote.
“If Florida is so ‘free,’ why does @GovRonDeSantis think he has the right to bully and give orders to other people’s kids?” far-Left MSNBC host Joy Reid posted on social media.
But Ron DeSantis is a fighter who doesn’t back down from the Fake News Media like most other Republicans do the moment they’re attacked and smeared.
As Ron DeSantis’ Press Secretary, Christina Pushaw, told Fox News during an interview, the Governor did not “berate” the children as the Fake News Media claims.
“The kids laughed after he said it,” Pushaw said. “They knew he wasn’t frustrated with them but with the peer pressure around masking in schools.”
“As the Governor said, ‘You can wear them if you want,’ but stated facts that there’s no evidence masks make any difference . . . After two years of mixed messages from health authorities and media, the Governor wants to make sure everyone is aware of the facts and data now, so they can feel free and comfortable without a mask,” Pushaw told Fox News Digital.
Of course, no matter what DeSantis does, the Democrats and Fake News Media are going to attack him for it.
After spending the past year and a half trying to force everyone to mask up and get vaccinated, the Democrats are now desperate to distance themselves from being the Party of lockdowns and mandates this November.
But leaders like Ron DeSantis are making sure that voters never forget that Democrats are the ones responsible for the COVID tyranny during the pandemic.
