  1. DeSantis has selected not to govern Floridians unbiasedly during a horrendous humanitarian health crisis. He is “NOT FIT” to govern, VOTE HIM OUT!

  2. Any other sane political leader on the planet would resign in the case of this Governor’s failures. This guy guy needs to be impeached!

    1. T-2 DAYS: Would the last Service Member on the tarmac please turn out the lights and don’t feel guilty about the American civilians and Afghan allies left behind. That blame lies far above your pay grade and rests squarely upon your Commander-In-Name Only.

    2. @William Stall, actually foreigners were informed and warned to leave from April 2021 onwards. So, it was up to them to stay or to leave! No one else responsibleaty really.

    1. @MaxMisterC *- the Typical Liberal Democrat is so DUMB, that they still think Bush Crashed the Economy, and Barack Obama Fixed it with Taxes, Welfare, and a Wealth Redistribution SCAM.*

    2. @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500
      Here, read this numb nuts… get educated on some FACTS…

      “Trump supporters say, ‘We suffered 8 years under Barack Obama.’
      Fair enough. Let’s take a look.
      The day Obama took office, the Dow closed at 7,949 points. Eight years later, the Dow had almost tripled.
      General Motors and Chrysler were on the brink of bankruptcy, with Ford not far behind, and their failure, along with their supply chains, would have meant the loss of millions of jobs. Obama pushed through a controversial, $80 billion bailout to save the car industry. The U.S. car industry survived, started making money again, and the entire $80 billion was paid back, with interest.
      While we remain vulnerable to lone-wolf attacks, no foreign terrorist organization has successfully executed a mass attack here since 9/11.
      Obama ordered the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.
      He drew down the number of troops from 180,000 in Iraq and Afghanistan to just 15,000, and increased funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
      He launched a program called Opening Doors which, since 2010, has led to a 47 percent decline in the number of homeless veterans. He set a record 73 straight months of private-sector job growth.
      Due to Obama’s regulatory policies, greenhouse gas emissions decreased by 12%, production of renewable energy more than doubled, and our dependence on foreign oil was cut in half.
      He signed The Lilly Ledbetter Act, making it easier for women to sue employers for unequal pay.
      His Omnibus Public Lands Management Act designated more than 2 million acres as wilderness, creating thousands of miles of trails and protecting over 1,000 miles of rivers.
      He reduced the federal deficit from 9.8 percent of GDP in 2009 to 3.2 percent in 2016.
      For all the inadequacies of the Affordable Care Act, we seem to have forgotten that, before the ACA, you could be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition and kids could not stay on their parents’ policies up to age 26.
      Obama approved a $14.5 billion system to rebuild the levees in New Orleans.
      All this, even as Mitch McConnell famously asserted that his singular mission would be to block anything President Obama tried to do.
      While Obama failed on his campaign pledge to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, that prison’s population decreased from 242 to around 50.
      He expanded funding for embryonic stem cell research, supporting ground breaking advancement in areas like spinal injury treatment and cancer.
      Credit card companies can no longer charge hidden fees or raise interest rates without advance notice.
      Most years, Obama threw a 4th of July party for military families. He held babies, played games with children, served barbecue, and led the singing of “Happy Birthday” to his daughter Malia, who was born on July 4.
      Welfare spending is down: for every 100 poor families, just 24 receive cash assistance, compared with 64 in 1996.
      Obama comforted families and communities following more than a dozen mass shootings. After Sandy Hook, he said, “The majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old.”
      Yet,
      he never took away
      anyone’s guns……..
      He sang Amazing Grace, spontaneously, at the altar.
      He was the first president since Eisenhower to serve two terms without personal or political scandal.
      He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
      President Obama was not perfect, as no man and no president is, and you can certainly disagree with his political ideologies. But to say we suffered?
      If that’s the argument, if this is how we suffered for 8 years under Barack Obama, I have one wish:
      may we be so fortunate as to suffer 8 more.”

    4. @DJ Jones You’re absolutely wrong, disinformation at it’s worse, science works try it. Get vaccinated.

  3. Since DeSantis has essentially broken the law by assuming he could get away with his abuse of power and since that abuse has no doubt already been complicit in numerous unnecessary deaths, is there no way he can be held accountable legally, and, by that measure, removed?

    1. @russell lacy I hear you. I’m waiting for the DOJ to get off it butt and take action before there’s too much for it to get its arms around with an army of attorneys working 24/7. Maybe SDNY will announce something soon. What they have could put Trump away for many years, and that would be the best thing that ever happened to our country. Take care.

    2. @Delmonico Farquhar It’s important to walk around with facts in mind, or on a sheet of paper, to shove in the face of every traitor who wants to pretend they’re a patriot and start popping off lies about the incredibly destructive Trump years.

    3. Ah, impeachment, so his Republican bum lickers can find him an innocent man being witch-hunted by the Marxist, communist, liberal, dictorial, woke, snowflake lefties !!!!!!
      Sure know how to hold politicians to account in America, whatever amoral horror they are responsible for vote them out after 4 years and use tax payers money to pay them a pension so far above the average Americans working wage it’d make you dizzy…… That’ll show them/teach them a lesson!!!!!

    4. T-2 DAYS: Would the last Service Member on the tarmac please turn out the lights and don’t feel guilty about the American civilians and Afghan allies left behind. That blame lies far above your pay grade and rests squarely upon your Commander-In-Name Only.

  4. It’s all about his pocket book, he cares nothing about human lives, or DEMOCRACY!!! ( HE RUNS, DEATH CAMP (FLORIDA)

    1. @Debbie Murphy hi how are you today? Good i hope! I think Mr Donald Trump will avoid prison due to him being very close to God-like status…

  5. I have been wondering if America will survive ourselves….. now I’m starting to wonder if the world is going to survive America….

    1. Yeah I feel like they are stuck in the Twilight zone and myself reality …. Help us father God your children need you now!!,

    2. Governor DeSantis has blood on his hands. He’s caused these deaths, he refuses to be reasonable, why would you ever follow someone that refuses to listen to reason?

  6. Very glad to hear that DeSantis is not going to be allowed to sacrifice the lives of Florida schoolchildren in order to maximize his wife’s profits from their stake in the company that makes Regeneron.

  7. daily reminder: trump incited an armed insurrection on january 6 2021 to overthrow a democratic election

    1. Daily Reminder: Trolls and Cult45 members will relentlessly defend fascism and insurrection on social media, and the owners of the platforms will do nothing to stop it.

    2. @Trump will never be President again Q is stupid except ban them and block their accounts….
      Is there a particular idea or speech that is too offensive for your eyes or ears? How is speech a bad thing?
      Schools, Universities, City, state and local governments have been spewing communism for years with zero repercussions. I have no problem with that speech…..why would they have a problem with mine?

    3. @Gseric47 True that and I WOULD LIKE TO OFFICIALLY dedicate Jackson Brown’s running on Empty as America’s official song lyrics for this fall on so vey many levels my puny illustrations could never display, that being said my opinoion about all that other stuff to as well is that Duty. Honor, Country to finish an earlier attempted quote all relates the same to the Fortunate, Brave, Capable, and fearless i WOULD BE so bold as to consider myself among them and display their attributes.

    4. T-2 DAYS: Would the last Service Member on the tarmac please turn out the lights and don’t feel guilty about the American civilians and Afghan allies left behind. That blame lies far above your pay grade and rests squarely upon your Commander-In-Name Only.

  8. There’s a HUGE difference between treatment and PREVENTION. Also between partisanship and COMMON SENSE. DeathSentance desperately needs to learn what the rest of America KNOWS!

    1. Ironic that the party that is so against abortion, are basically promoting that as being better than contraception.

    1. Freedom of choice except when it comes to: pregnancy, religion, voting and wages. But you do have the choice between cold indifference to people dying and actively encouraging them to die for the economy.

  9. Thanks Willie, his music rejects racism and hate. Keep bringing people together for the sake of Love and Happiness

  10. Literally says, “Don’t be that guy…” while being that guy. The delusion is complete on the right.

    1. Be careful with this guy/hypocrites cannot be trusted period no matters what he covers the republicans!

  11. Some Florida residents were siding with DeSantis, well now they’re seeing the bigger picture…. death. There is no coming back from that.

    1. We (as an “educated” country) should not be so thick that it takes watching a loved one die to do the reasonable thing
