Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, has been praised by many for how well he navigated his state through the coronavirus pandemic, but said he regrets not having rejected unscientific “Faucism” earlier.
The Harvard Law School graduate and Navy veteran made the remarks Monday on Fox Nation’s “Tucker Carlson Today.”
When the pandemic initially surfaced, DeSantis followed the advice of flip-flopping “expert” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, by closing down his state and imposing mask mandates.
But after reviewing the data, he quickly figured out that the elderly were the highest-risk group, while COVID-19 was not life-threatening — or even dangerous — for the vast majority of people under the age of 50.
That’s when the governor realized how unscientific and oppressive the one-size-fits-all restrictions being pushed by Democrats were and started customizing them to his state.
