The corporate-controlled media pushed the Democrats’ pro-lockdown and pro-mandate agenda throughout the entire pandemic.
They viciously attacked and smeared anyone who disagrees with Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci’s COVID guidelines.
Now Ron DeSantis’ new Surgeon General made one decision that sent CNN’s so-called “medical analyst” off the rails.
Ron DeSantis is the most popular Republican elected official in America.
DeSantis now enjoys rock star status among GOP voters for his pro-freedom policies during the pandemic.
When the rest of the country was forced into economy-crushing lockdowns, Ron DeSantis kept Florida’s businesses and schools open and running.
DeSantis also defended the bodily autonomy of Floridians by banning mask and vaccine mandates in the Sunshine State.
Thanks to DeSantis’ leadership, Florida came out of the pandemic in a much better position than Democrat-controlled states with strict lockdowns and mandates in place.
But that hasn’t stopped the radical Left from trying to take down DeSantis.
DeSantis recently sent the Left into a frenzy when his newly-confirmed Surgeon General announced that Florida would become the first state in America to go against CDC guidelines by officially recommending healthy children not get vaccinated for COVID.
“As Surgeon General, I cannot recommend that healthy children receive the COVID-19 vaccine,” Ladapo wrote on Twitter, adding that “when their overall risk is low, & there is a higher than anticipated rate of serious adverse events in clinical trials, it is unclear if benefits outweigh the risks.”
Previously, Ron DeSantis had only opposed the Democrats’ COVID tyranny by banning mask and vaccine mandates in Florida.
But with his Surgeon General now recommending healthy children not to get vaccinated for COVID, the Left is cranking up their attacks on DeSantis more than ever.
During a recent appearance on CNN’s The Lead, CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner discussed the decision with left-wing host Jake Tapper.
Jake Tapper began by asking Reiner to comment on the recent announcement that Florida will become the first state in the nation to officially recommend against COVID vaccines for healthy children.
“So Florida’s Department of Health released new guidelines Tuesday that said healthy children in Florida, age 5-17, do not need to get vaccinated. That’s not what the CDC says. What do you make of that?” Tapper asked Reiner.
“Florida has a disgraceful Surgeon General,” Reiner immediately fired back, before parroting the CDC’s phony narrative that severe illness in children can be “almost entirely prevented by vaccination.”
Of course, the reality is that Dr. Ladapo is making his decision based on data and real science.
“Based on currently available data, the risks of administering COVID-19 vaccination among healthy children may outweigh the benefits,” Ladapo wrote in a press release. “That is why these decisions should be made on an individual basis, and never mandated.”
Reiner then ripped Dr. Ladapo for opposing mask mandates.
“The Surgeon General has been anti-mask,” Reiner said, before being cut off by Tapper, who asked if he was referring to “the Surgeon General of Florida.”
“Absolutely,” Reiner fired back, adding that “the Surgeon General of Florida has been anti-mask, anti-vax.”
Reiner’s comments show that Democrats really have no intention of ever allowing the pandemic to come to an end.
Polls show the American people are sick of COVID mandates and lockdowns and are ready for a return to normalcy.
But perhaps the most disturbing part of the interview occurred at the end, when Reiner declared that “every child in this country should be vaccinated for coronavirus.”
After Joe Biden attempted to force hundreds of millions of Americans to get vaccinated, hearing CNN’s so-called “medical chief” say that “every child in this country should be vaccinated” should frighten anyone who cares about freedom and bodily autonomy.
