Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is known for telling it like it is.
It’s one of the reasons why he is wildly popular with Republican voters nationwide.
And Anthony Fauci will be furious over what Ron DeSantis just said about Joe Biden’s federal mask mandate.
Ron DeSantis has been a thorn in the side of the Biden administration throughout the entire pandemic.
He refused to lock down the state, keeping Florida’s businesses and schools mostly open over the past two years.
DeSantis also took action to protect Floridians against Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci’s COVID tyranny, banning both mask and vaccine passports in the Sunshine state.
While most of the country was locked down and under strict rules, Florida was free and open for business.
As a result, Florida’s economy boomed during the pandemic, with a record-breaking 118 million people visiting the state last year, totaling $17.3 billion in revenue for the hotel industry.
Not only that, but the total number of passengers at Florida’s 19 airports increased 80 percent compared to 2020.
During a press conference on Tuesday, Ron DeSantis touted Florida’s record-breaking numbers, pointing to the trend of Americans fleeing blue states with heavy-handed coronavirus restrictions.
DeSantis also ripped Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci’s ridiculous federal mask mandate on airplanes, saying Florida’s numbers would likely be even higher if not for this insane rule.
“How ridiculous is it,” DeSantis said about wearing a mask on airplanes. “They force you to wear a mask but if you put the mask under your chin and you sip on water for two hours, then somehow it’s fine and that’s ok. It’s irrational what they’re doing with the mask mandate, but I know there are definitely people who just don’t want to go through the hassle of having to be accosted about masks,” DeSantis continued, adding that Biden should “absolutely reverse the mask mandate, federal mask mandate on air travel.”
DeSantis called it “an irrational policy,” especially the Biden administration “forcing two-year olds” to wear a mask.
As a father, DeSantis understands how difficult it is for parents to force their children to mask up.
“It’s hard to make sure the kids behave as it is. You have to force a mask on them? Give me a break. I mean, it doesn’t even work. So hopefully they’ll take away the federal mask mandate,” DeSantis said.
Of course, polls show the majority of Americans agree with Ron DeSantis.
Even left-wing Governors realize the tide has turned on mask mandates and are rushing to repeal theirs ahead of the Midterm elections.
But as long as Joe Biden keeps his federal mask mandate on airplanes in place, it will be difficult for Democrats to not be labeled as the Party of COVID rules and mandates.
