Florida’s DeSantis Says WH, Mainstream Media ‘Hostile’ to Him Over Therapies to Treat COVID-19
Florida’s conservative governor has long had strained relations with the federal authorities and mainstream media over his stance on the southern border crisis and COVID-19 countermeasures, as Florida has remained open most of the time.
Despite some of the relative successes of Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biden administration and much of the media remain hostile to Florida’s way of coping with the virus, the governor believes.
In an interview with Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday, DeSantis said that the constant assault of negative publicity and criticism from Washington is “all political.”
He claimed that he wears such a critique like a badge of honor, telling presenter Mark Levin that it is all “positive feedback.”
“If the corporate press nationally isn’t attacking me, then I’m probably not doing my job,” he said. “So the fact that they are attacking me is a good indication that you know what, I’m tackling the big issues.”
