  1. Right in DeSantis’s backyard. He totally failed Floridians, there will be no forgiveness come election time

    1. @David Eby he didn’t lie about anything in the vast majority of the country that is vaccinated he did shut it down. So much for your republican “personal responsibility”.

    1. @My Perspective Again you all are dealing with the same issue. I guess you don’t know how many white kids out here come from broken homes. So again you all are dealing with the same problem. So are you finished ?

    2. @Dinero Kid1707 I can call you a “BOY”. Just did. TWICE
      Biden called you one TODAY boy. Stop being a crybaby. You still crying.

    1. It’ll make funeral services more efficient, especially if they put coffins on conveyor belts!

    2. I really hope these anti-vaxxers don’t get vaccinated.
      They can get treated by their QAnon Grand Shaman.
      They have to stop going to hospitals now.
      Hope also they don’t contaminate vulnerable people on their way out.
      They are too weak to accept reality and adapt.
      We are stronger without them.
      We have to let evolution follow its course

  2. Go look at the Florida Governor’s website. There’s no reference to COVID on the front page…it’s all about recent appointments he’s made, how he’s pushing back on Biden in Afgan immigrants and how he’s opening more treatment centers. “COVID” is only mentioned once you click through to the treatment center info. No other links. Sheesh.

    1. @Drake Carter yeah, my vote cancels yours. The only exception is you are a delegate. Because you called me a fool when you don’t understand simple stuff makes it clear you are no delegate. In fact, you are the fool clearly

  3. And Desantis is supposed to be the first or second best option for the Republicans to be their nominee other than Trump? He’s some of the best they can offer to lead this country? Wow. I do not want to know what the worst they can offer would be like. Probably someone like Taylor Greene. Ugh.

  4. Fascinating that some don’t believe in the science of the vax but have no problem showing up at hospitals for treatment using…science.

    1. Science or not, people are getting sick. That’s the reality, we can speculate all we want “what if we were all just vaccinated” but that was a large demand to begin with. We all just have to be tolerant with others and safe with our lives from now on period.

  5. This sums up why I got vaccinated:
    I’m vaccinated and, no, I don’t know what’s in it – neither this vaccine, the ones I had as a child, nor in the Big Mac, or in hot dogs, or in other treatments…whether it’s for cancer, AIDS, the one for polyarthritis, or vaccines for infants or children. I trust my doctor when he says it’s needed.
    I also don’t know what’s in Ibuprofen, Tylenol, or other meds, it just cures my headaches & my pains …
    I don’t know what’s in the ink for tattoos, vaping, or every ingredient in my soap or shampoo or even deodorants. I don’t know the long term effect of cell phone use or whether or not that restaurant I just ate at REALLY used clean foods and washed their hands.
    In short …
    There’s a lot of things I don’t know and never will…
    I just know one thing: life is short, very short, and I still want to do something other than just going to work every day or staying locked in my home. I still want to travel and hug people without fear and find a little feeling of life “before”.
    As a child and as an adult I’ve been vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chicken pox, and quite a few others; my parents and I trusted the science and never had to suffer through or transmit any of said diseases … just saying.
    I’m vaccinated, not to please the government but:
    * To not die from Covid-19.
    * To NOT clutter a hospital bed if I get sick.
    * To hug my loved ones
    * To Not have to do PCR or antigen tests to go out dancing, go to a restaurant, go on holidays and many more things to come …
    * To live my life.
    * To have my kids go back to school and play sports.
    * For Covid-19 to be an old memory.
    * To protect us.

    1. @jamie schulte Yeah more flu.
      70% of your immune system is from probiotic gut bacteria. Its pretty mainstream. Check it out. I havent been sick in 15 years mate.

    2. @Rainbows Rock The morgue is full of people that thought their immune system could handle a virus…

    3. @Chris Gilliam Man Stuff Fauci wrote a paper a few years ago about spanish flu. He Said most people died of bacterial pneumonia.
      Doyou know the cdc is dropping the PCR for inaccuracy this whole time. I t has almost a 50 % false pos brother. Scineceis real not cherry picked science yes. We want honest open transparency and debate or you are doing operation warp speed.

      All last year the media was saying, In response to trump and operation warpspeed “You cant make a safe vaccine in less than 5 years”. Now they seem to be on board with operation warpseed.
      Democrats’ Hypocrisy on Mask and Vaccine Mandates

  6. Hey Americans! Do guys remember Mark Berbier from Florida who called himself “Mr.Antivaxx”. Well, he died couple of days ago from covid. 3rd conservative radio host to die from the disease…

    1. Kazadi :: Good riddance, by Halloween we’ll have lost a lot more than that and by election day next year, enough fanatic trumpies might be gone to avoid a KKK turnover of government.

    2. @L. Medina well they’ll die soon enough so you won’t have to worry about them for too much more. Then when all the ignorant die the vccin ated will be ok , till then wear your mask n practice distanceing so they don’t affect the intelligent ones. If there’s one thing that can put you at ease is that nature’s wrath will always wipe out the weak and unprepared

    3. @G Hill Trumpers are shrinking in number, but unfortunately they destroyed the Republican party, and there are a few decent people that are real Republicans, I’m one. Cheney 2024

    4. Isn’t that more of an unbelievable coincidence that 3 “antivax” radio hosts died of covid? Considering how many semi popular conservative antivax radio hosts there are in the country. I’m guessing maybe 8?

  7. As tRump once said about covid morbidity numbers, “It is what it is”. I wonder if that’s any comfort to his sick & dying no vax supporters who think he ever cared?

    1. That weird, how come I’m not sick and dying. I was told Covid is a death sentence though. Lol

    2. @Win Big with Lena & Mike – idiots make idiotic statements and based on your statement one does not have to wonder what you are!

  8. I’ve had to stay at TGH for extended times. If this guy is a med dir there then listen to him. TGH is one of the best hospitals in the country.

    1. IF THIS GUY IS A MEDICAL DIRECTOR THEN HE SHOULD BE WORKING INSTEAQD OF GETTING HIS 15 MINUTES OF FAME. PEOPLE ARE DYING!!!!!! REMEMBER?

    2. @mike brigs he’s trying to educate people like you. When you show up with Covid I hope he takes an extended vacation.

    3. @mike brigs He said he just came off working the night shift in the covid unit. How do you know he isn’t going right back after this interview? What have you done to help?

    4. Me & thee, rd400d. TGH is not only one of the *best* , those folks let you *know* they care. Granted, times are ‘over-the-top’ with battling COVID-19 & variants right now so even they must be stressed to the limit BUT — if I ever need to be hospitalized again, Tampa General is where I’d want to be. Not only an immense amount of expertise but darn near *everyone* truly cares & you really *feel* it. When you’re going through major medical issues, that kindness, that caring is the icing on the cake of expertise that truly helps one *get better* . As my terrific physical therapist would often say, *Ooh-Rah!!*

    1. @ mike brigs.
      D’oh. It was Trump who set this whole mess up that’s currently happening in Afghanistan. Or didn’t you know that?
      It was Trump who cut the deal with the Taliban in Doha, Qatar, in February 2020 to withdraw from Afghanistan by May 2021.
      Trump had no clue what the heck he was doing when he made that deal with the devil(s). I guess he was too stupid to realize he wasn’t going to stay in office through 2021 to see what would happen?
      D’oh.
      You might want to get some facts straight before you try to gaslight America.
      Republican’s schemes of gaslightling America is just old. Everyone has caught on to this stupid strategy.

    2. @ Critical Purple.
      Make yourself useful and go give Mike Lindell a hug. He’s been awefully quiet lately ever since the lawsuit with Dominion will proceed per court oders.
      Maybe he’ll give ya a curtesy reach-around too? I hope so. Sounds like you could use one.

    3. @Super Squirrelthe lawsuit will proceed. So what? You say that as if Dominion has already won, when it hasn’t even taken off yet. If you have proof he is lying, then why haven’t you collected the $5 million reward that is on the table? Are you so rich that 5 million bucks isn’t worth collecting? Turn off your TV, sheep!

    4. @ Don Lewis.
      Hey mini-Don. Do you think The Don (Mr. Twice-Impeached) could sign up for a public tour of the WH? Or maybe everyone officially authorized to be in the WH might say no to that jerk if he tries to return….even for a civilian visit?
      You think that’s legal? $5 bucks says CULT45 doesn’t have the brass balls to even tour the WH as a civilian. Baahaha. Baahaha.

    1. I feel very sorry for the folks not able to get vaccination due to health and for the children who do not have a choice, I have a 82 year old friend who’s caregiver is anti vax’ . Those are the people I feel bad for.

  9. Covid 19 : I’m a terrible worldwide pandemic.
    Florida : I’m not bothered
    Delta variant : hold my beer

  10. Since the beginning I have wondered if this is just a flu or a cold and you choose to be un-vaccinated then please stay home do not go to the hospitals and fill them up, people who actually CARE about life needs those rooms. If this is nothing to worry about, them WHY GO TO HOSPITAL!!!

    1. The people who actually care about life needs those rooms? Like the selfish fat people who won’t stop eating McDonald’s? Or the selfish drug addicts who won’t stop doing heroine? Or the selfish cancer smokers who won’t quit? Or the selfish drunk drivers who get into accidents? Are those the people that need the beds? The selfish fat cancer smoking drunk drug addicts? Are those the people you speak of that actually “CARE” about life? They are knowingly killing themselves but they deserve a bed? They did it to themselves and they deserve a bed?

  11. Need to include in the death count, somehow, people needing emergency medical care but died because all the ICU beds are full of covid patients..

  12. Sending children to school in this surge is like sending your kids on a battle field .. children should not risk their lives

  13. Their goal was to prevent Biden from reaching his goal of 70% vaccinated by July 4 to own the libs. Well the joke is on them.

  14. Ron Desantis has the nerve to say he’s doing a great job with Covid 19, in his State. He should be ashamed of himself and embarrassed.
