    1. It sounds like only one of his three children are old enough to go to school yet, and even the oldest one might just be in kindergarten this year. I’m willing to bet there’s a good chance that child will be in an online program or private school either way

    2. @S Runnion don’t try to play the statistics game. White Republicans make up the greater number of unvaccinated people period and dumb Paxton is well aware of that. This week he blamed blacks and last week he tried blaming immigrants. The real answer is white republican men period

    3. @S Runnion proof??? That’s right, you don’t have any!!! Nobody has been blaming only republicans, but the difference is democrats aren’t actively trying to get people to not take the vaccine. Republicans are! Look up the statistics and you’ll see that many more trump-lovin RINOs make up a much larger portion of the unvaccinated than black people!

  1. I wouldn’t say “for your failure” as if it was an accident or an oversight.
    I’d say “for your willful bad choices”

    1. Free will isn’t real. The universe is determined. So it really isn’t a choice. It was more the happenstance of the universe.

    1. Ahhh, another HATE filled liberal, so filled with HATE for Trump that they will deny the FACTS, even when those FACTS come from the CDC’s own website!! Here is the quote directly from the CDC website: “Black people have received smaller shares of vaccinations compared to their shares of cases and the total population in about half of states reporting data. In the remaining reporting states, the share of vaccinations they have received is similar to their shares of cases and the total population. However, in most reporting states, the share of vaccinations received by Black people is smaller than their share of deaths. For example, in the District of Columbia, Black people have received 43% of vaccinations, while they make up 56% of cases, 71% of deaths, and 46% of the total population.”

      AND here are some more FACTS for you to deny: FACT: ‘Operation Warp Speed’ was the program pushed by TRUMP that brought us the vaccines in the fastest time in history. FACT: It was Democratic leadership that was telling everyone NOT to trust the “Trump shot”, “it has not be tested”, ”it’s been rushed by Trump”. FACT: Trump was shown getting the shot. FACT: Trump has NEVER told ANYONE NOT to get the shot.

      So, tell me again who is spreading disinformation?? As always, feel free to refute ANY of the FACTS I have presented. Final FACT: If you believe one has to be a supporter of a certain politician simply because the person is willing to admit FACTS and truth, that makes you a hate-filled idiot!

  2. Why do people see ANYTHING these Texas republicans say as shocking at this point?
    Stop talking and start VOTING!!

    2. @Trailin’ Annie OK, “Trump was shown getting the shot”?….
      Really?
      Did you see that?
      Who did?

      I think your FACTS are FICTION.

  3. Someone should tell desantis that being a parent doesn’t mean you automatically know everything. And i can tell HIS parents didnt know a thing about raising a respectable and decent human being.

    1. Right! If parents always did what’s best for their children agencies like Dept of Family & Children Services wouldn’t exist.

    2. A lot of parents (the dumbest ones) think that they’re automatically an expert in anything that involves their kid. Most times it’s just harmless and annoying, but in this case these people are willing to let their children get sick and suffer because of their own ignorance.

  4. I’ll bet DeSantis is not sending his kids to school without protection, His kids probably go to a private school with social distancing and masks also.

    1. @I like Free Speech You yourself probably don’t have the willingness to interact with Black and White people but Freedom brings on Responsibilities. Your choice shouldn’t make you ignorant. For those people who don’t want to get vaccinated or wear a mask why not just get tagged.

  5. The crazy notion that my grandparents should be happy to die after living through 20th Century wars just so I can go to the mall is abhorrent to me. That Texas politician’s comment was disgusting and so disrespectful to them and us – their grandchildren. I’ve never cried as much as I did at my Nana’s funeral.

    1. @Don’t Inject The Kool Aid Thanks for accepting the 650,000 deaths I’m responsible for.
      Donald Trump.

  6. DeSantis didn’t mind when Biden and the federal government was there to “interfere ” after the building collapsed. DeSantis sat there grudgingly grateful

    1. @Savlo Savage Feel free to refute ANY of my FACTS. I have NEVER supported ANY politician, I only share FACTS. If it hurts you when I shine the light on your hatred and media lies, YOU are the one with the problem.

  7. Yet the school DeSatan has his kids attend, the Christian private school here, has a mask mandate!! They did get their funding as well!

    1. @Mide Leyi Its interesting that red states had on average twice the death rate. However the US electorate are so entrenched they don’t seem to mind being neglected to the point of actual death as long as its by the same side.

    2. @Alexandre Richter Oh don’t be stupid.

      This will end up being a demonstration of natural selection. Shame the kids will die or become ill for the sake of their stupid parents.

    3. @Mide Leyi y’all dems are all crazy none of them are doing anything they are making the people do. Nancy maskless getting a haircut in the middle of the worst pandemic the world’s ever seen so they say.Obama’s 400 person birthday party no mask inside. Don lemon and Chris Como out partying no mask inside. Can y’all not see that? Chris even went out while he supposedly had covid and cussed another man out for not wearing a mask and he had covid with no mask get a clue.

    4. @Random Task Hi there! So I have 3 kids… 2 go to private school. They receive scholarships to attend a private school. Those scholarships are funded by the state. I do not pay anything out of pocket except for their uniforms. Im not sure if you did your research or if you are speaking from your own experience but in my experience private schools are not entirely paid for by “wealthy individuals”. I used to think this as I only attended public schools, but that is a lie as I found out when my children became school aged. The asst. Principals even confided they need to meet a quota of students attending in order to qualify for certain benefits (again, all state funded, so yes, tax payer money). I hope this helped your understanding of the person comment you were misunderstanding. Have a nice day.
      Oh P.s. check out Amber Ruffin, she did a quick explanation on some of this recently.

  8. Mannnn, I was waiting on this. Surprised it took this long. This pandemic wouldn’t be complete without another episode of “Let’s Create a Black Scapegoat”. I give America credit tho, that’s some amazing decades long consistency. Nothing like good ole fashioned racism to start the morning off lol

  9. As a parent DeSantis is offended at the government mandating masks for children.
    As a citizen, I am offended at DeSantis as a human being.

    2. To make his neglect for his constituents worse, his children go to a private school that requires maks for all staff and students.

  10. These anti maskers are willing to wear an oxygen mask and a ventilator mask when the virus hits them.

    1. @landon hill he’s talking about the same 99% of unvaccinated ppl getting hospitalized if they catch covid. Even if the vaccinated ppl can catch and spread it (which is also true) they aren’t the ones gasping for air on a ventilator unlike the 99% of unvaccinated covid patients who are hospitalized, taking up room and beds in the hospital. Vaccinated ppl only get mild symptoms or don’t even realize they have it. You seemed confused on what he was talking about so I wanted to break it down for ya buddy

    2. @Waifu’sParadise ENT. Thank you…. I work in the pathology department in the hospital. I look thru a microscope for a living.. I am always amazed people on YouTube going video to video thinking they actually know such is life

    1. Hey sheep, Kids under 12 years old do not need to be vaccinated. This same population can get Corona virus and overwhelmingly do just fine….just like they have done for hundreds of years. This is a fact.

    2. @Nemisis Dawn We all die, so what’s your point? You’d rather have a potential baby grow up abused and unwanted to abuse others and fill the jails before they die un-naturally anyway?

    3. @Pedro The Mexican lol
      The sad fact is 30% of births died in infancy, 50% died in childhood in the “good old days”

  11. When he gets open heart surgery I hope implores the doctors and nurses to not wear masks and insists that at least one has a terrible cold and sneezes alot.

    1. Lots of people will be avoiding hospitals after we saw the 97% fatality rate for patients they vented for Covid-19 symptoms… I for one would rather take my chances at home and die with some dignity.

    1. @Hidden Dragon I encourage you to check the overall death rates in the US and UK the past 5 years… the 2020 death rates were not unusually high, could it be that those who died were mostly of such bad health they were likely to have died anyway?

    2. The week in Biden:
      There won’t be chaos-monday
      We expected chaos- Wednesday
      2 days is 5 days
      Contradicts every other department’s speaker this week. Who is losing their mind again?

    3. @Ogier The Dane Listen the American people would never allow socialism in this country. There would be a war. Your side would lose terribly the right has the military and police. As well as the NRA. Also the right is the majority. Are you naive enough to think those people would allow that to be enforced? You got another thing coming. You want so socialism so bad your free to move to socialist country at any time. What’s keeping you here?

    4. @D Winchester And that is why I am going to run for president in 2042 as a Republican, so I can talk some sense into the other Republicans and get their minds back on the right path.

    1. And the shame of it all, people keep voting for a party that never cared for them and with this knowledge, why do they do this, it’s got to be some type of sewn in racism.

    2. lets get a clue here things the democrats have sunk to a new low
      1. since biden took office letting over one million illegals in the country with coivd
      2. while afgan. yow know leaving thousands of americans to fend fro themselves. so stop throwing stones.

    1. Ahhh, another HATE filled liberal, so filled with HATE for Trump that they will deny the FACTS, even when those FACTS come from the CDC’s own website!!
