“When COVID first came in, you know, we were dealing with it,” DeSantis said. “I told Trump, ‘Stop flights from China,’ because we didn’t know what we were doing. But you know, I never thought it would lead to a blockade of this country in February, in early March. I just did it. I didn’t think it was on the radar.
DeSantis has proposed a decision to block most of the country without warning due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19.
“I talked to Pence and the CDC director about cruise ships in Port Everglades in the second week of March and no one talked about closing the country,” the governor told hosts. He also said that if he had known that the mass blockade was “an earlier threat”, he would have been “more loud” against the blockade measures.
DeSantis also took aim Dr. Anthony Fauci, Accused Faucini of relying on “unreliable” information from China as federal blockade orders engulfed the country in a storm.
When people were disappointed with the blockade measures, DeSantis said, “People like Fauci were ridiculed.” “They’ve been tracking data from China, which is not reliable.”
“Fauci funded them at Wuhan Lab and he lied about it,” DeSantis added. “Why isn’t he being prosecuted for lying to Congress?”
Speaking on the podcast, DeSantis also knocked out Supreme Court justices John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh for not having a “backbone” in the Biden administration’s decision on a vaccination mandate for some medical personnel.
“Roberts and Kavanaugh joined the Liberals to allow the nurse’s mandate and the doctor’s mandate,” DeSantis said.
