  1. Trump would have done the same thing. So happy he’s not our president

  2. Edwin Nakamura | March 13, 2021 at 1:30 AM | Reply

    Investigate governor and follow the money……homie is corrupted as sin!!

  3. So basically DeSantis is playing “Hunger Games” with the vaccine and the lives of Floridians.

  4. Mean while middle and lower class are paying taxes and are dying doing so with no excess to vaccination,way to go Desatan.😮

  5. And yet, non wealthy white people support him

    • the majority of the ppl at the country club are old.
      Bruce Rauner, the politician mentioned in the video that donated 250k, is 65 years old which puts him in the first to be vaccinated category.
      Try again kiddo

      @Crimdor It doesn’t give them the right to skip to the front of the line just because they gave donations to DeSantis though. Try again kiddo.

      YES WE DO!!! And I’m NPA.

    • Jeremy Backup – have you tried contributing more to society?

    Ron DeSantis is the embarrassment of the state of Florida.

  7. Catherine Wilson | March 13, 2021 at 2:26 AM | Reply

    He’s Trump’s little protege.

    • @David Eby Without Trump, there would be the same or better vaccine, and fewer dead Americans in 2020. Trump denies science. Trump chose and still does spread misinformation and conspiracy theories, rather than beneficial knowledge and organization. The economic impact of covid would have been less, if we’d had a better chief executive in 2020.

    • Florida didn’t shutdown and didn’t have riots bc DeSantis said he wouldn’t allow it. Can you say the same for Seattle and Portland?

    • @G Howard also: the sun has continued rising in the east!

    • @George if Biden’s eyes close anymore, I’d swear his Andes was chinese. Seriously, what’s wrong with his eyes? Is he sick?

    • @G Howard #troll #bot

  8. The evils of government are directly proportionate to the tolerance of the people…

  9. DeSantis: 👎 I would like to be a Romsn emperor…

    TRUMP’S PLAYBOOK being used again because “TRUMP’S HISTORY” has showed that there is no consequences for illegal political activity. In a two party system, such illegal activities exposed, can be called as taking revenge, thus nobody follows it to conviction.

      @David Eby
      If anyone told you that your comments were intelligent, insightful or truthful, they were telling fibs!

    • @David Eby
      Post some evidence of that.
      What, you can’t?
      It’s impossible to post turd nuggets you’ve pulled from Uranus.
      Try again, little one.

      US is laughing stock of the world

    • Kelly Burket | March 14, 2021 at 9:04 PM | Reply

      Democrats do but Republicans always cheat and lie their way out, due to Republican corruption in the courts! Republicans are an organized crime syndicate and should not be allowed to run for or hold office just like the Nazi Party…another right wing organization!!!

      @Kelly Burket If Republicans can’t hold each other accountable, the American People will.

  11. Sad state of “land of liberty”

    New Age Slavery

    • @Soupy Anderson you are dumb I’m black I live in Florida vaccines are available to everyone. This is just made up politics. Orange County has a black mayor and he said himself that this isn’t accurate vaccines are where they need to be

    • @Soupy Anderson The facts are the facts you shod Ik see Orange County Mayors response to the allegations he whose wife is a dem rep said it isn’t true

    • Horrifying Apocalypse | March 15, 2021 at 8:30 PM | Reply

      @Soupy Anderson Of course, systemic racism is clearly impacting vaccination.
      I only reacted to the original comment claiming corruption was “new age slavery”. I think it’s insensitive to compare trivial things to slavery. Corruption is really bad, just not on the same level. Just a thought.

      @Francis Marion Now that was pretty close to slavery.

    DeSantis is just the Floridian version of Trump.

    Nobody in America even tries to hide it anymore, this is appalling behavior, why are these people not even investigated ffs.
    Never lecture the rest of the world on corruption, fraud, etc etc etc

  14. Not a surprise. Typical GOP corrupt behavior.

    • I’m not surprised that you believe MSNBC’s biased news.

    • @Justus if it pains you to hear and accept facts, take your wool and go watch fox.

    • @Bacondogger why would I go and watch Fox??

    • Theresa Carmen | March 14, 2021 at 8:43 PM | Reply

      Why anyone would want to go to Florida is beyond me,. It sounds like another nest of graft and gangsters,

    • @Justus Apparently YOU do, as well. And you should. Where else would Right-wingers actually get some REAL news and sense of what’s ACTUALLY taken place in the World? You know, THERE IS A REASON why the Limbaughs, Hannitys and the Levin types mock– not only MSNBC– but CNN and C-SPAN, as well, telling people, such as yourself, NOT to watch those particular networks. But, that aside, apparently YOU’VE made the right choice in watching, as well. As the gang at MSNBC say: ‘Thanks for watching, Justus!” 😉

    “Desatan” is doing what “republicons ” do, looking out for his white, wealthy and affluent donors. Meanwhile, people of color and the poor are pushed to the back of the line and left to suffer and die. And it’s done this way because there will be no consequences whatsoever for this behavior. And the good people of Florida will vote for him next election.

    • Support voter protection by Federal government bill is before congress. Complain about state voter suppression legislation by corrupt GOP.

    • Lord Mitchell | March 13, 2021 at 6:59 PM | Reply

      I feel you. But I believe you are mistaken. See God don’t share his kingdom. And we know how hard it’s for a rich person to enter. And there is that matter of blood line. Mention in Romans 9.4. Just like the people mentioned, in Acts. 13.1. So do you care to revise. You statement. Are shall I go on. Because we have a lot to be grateful for.

  16. This is what happens when you elect Republicans into positions of power.

  17. DeSantis, another potential long term resident on club fed with 45 th negative billionaire.

  18. This was predictable, so a roll out procedure that prevented this should have been set up right at the beginning.

  19. If he looks likes a gangster, talks like a gangster, guess what? he’s probably a gangster.

    Republicans, ESPECIALLY the poor ones, LOVE being cheated and dominated by incompetent male authority figures.
