The re-election campaign of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) released new shirts this week mocking leftists for coming to the state of Florida to escape restrictive coronavirus lockdown measures in their own states.
The new shirts comes as two Democrats politicians from other states were caught hanging out in Florida over the last week, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Eric Swalwell (D-CA).
"We're a free state. If I had a dollar for every lockdown politician who decided to escape to Florida over the last two years, I'd be a pretty doggone wealthy man, let me tell you,"
DeSantis said in a campaign release video. "If you are trying to lock people down, I am standing in your way and I'm standing for the people of Florida. Welcome to Florida."
The top of the front of the shirt says, "Escape to Florida,"
while the bottom of the shirt states, "The LOCKDOWN LIBS Tour."
The back of the shirt lists the following:
- Gretchen Whitmer, MI Gov ............... West Palm Beach, FL
- Jim Kenney, Philadelphia Mayor ............... Ft. Lauderdale
- Phil Murphy, NJ Gov ............... Orlando, FL
- Don Lemon, CNN Anchor ............... Palm Beach, FL
- AOC, U.S. Congress (NY-14) ............... Miami Beach, FL
- Ned Lamont, CT Gov ............... South Florida
- NBC's New Years Special ............... Miami, FL
- Eric Swalwell, U.S. Congress ............... Miami Beach, FL
The bottom of the back of the shirt states, "WE DON'T BLAME YOU... WE LIKE FREEDOM, TOO."
DeSantis took shots at Democrat politicians and health officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, during an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday, saying that the way that they have handled the pandemic has damaged the country.
"I think when you look back how the pandemic was handled there will be a whole host of the cardinal sins,"
DeSantis said. "But some of the chief will be school closures, kids were locked out of school for over a year, we have schools still closed in parts of the country, unbelievably, the extended lockdowns, the lockdowns were a disaster - but not focusing on treatment from the beginning was a huge mistake, Dr. Anthony Fauci and people like him are absolutely to blame for this, and so once we did get these treatments on line through the private sector, to ignore them and to put all your eggs in one basket was a fundamental mistake. Now, the question is, Biden did mention it once, he mentioned it after - right before they cut our supply, he said we'll ramp up the monoclonal antibodies then he turns around and cuts the supply, we have not seen the ramp up. He had months and months after this was demonstrated to be effective to be ready for this, and we haven't seen that. I don't think that they're ultimately going to embrace it."
