Ron DeSantis is rising as a 2024 GOP Presidential contender.
DeSantis’ rise worries Democrats who see a popular swing state governor as a formidable presidential candidate.
But Joe Biden just picked a fight with Ron DeSantis that didn’t turn out like anyone expected.
The Biden administration released new guidelines not based on any science demanding students in grades K-12 wear masks all day in school.
According to the Center for Disease Control’s own numbers, 337 children have tragically died of COVID in the last year.
But every single one had a serious health condition.
There’s no evidence that schools served as vectors of coronavirus.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis built his growing national reputation by keeping Florida schools open last fall and never mandating masks.
DeSantis’ spokeswoman Christine Pushaw blasted the Biden administration’s voodoo mask guidelines in a statement to Fox News.
“It isn’t based in science. There is no indication that areas with mask mandates have performed any better than areas without mask mandates. In fact, this policy could actually backfire,” Pushaw declared.
Pushaw added that the Biden administration issuing new mask guidelines when a vaccine is readily available undermines confidence in the vaccine.
“Mandating masks for vaccinated people erodes public trust and confidence in the effectiveness of the vaccines. To me it appears that the government wants to be perceived as ‘doing something’ during a seasonal infection surge, even if their policy does not necessarily make people safer,” Pushaw added.
Governor DeSantis also tore into the Biden administration and pledged never to mandate masks for school children.
“I think our fear is is that seeing some of those rumblings, that there be an attempt from the federal level or even some of these organizations to try to push for mandatory masking of school children. And so our view is that this should absolutely not be imposed. It should not be mandated,” the Governor said.
Actual health experts backed up DeSantis’ position and explained that masking school children flew in the face of science and compromises the developmental and emotional needs of students.
Dr. H. Cody Meissner serves as the head of the pediatric infectious disease division at Tufts University School of Medicine and stated, “I strongly disagree with the recommendation that all children, 2 years and above need to wear a mask.”
“I think that the harm has been done to children, both physical, mental, emotional has been extraordinary. And I think we’re going to be stuck with that for a generation,” Dr. Meissner stated.
“Really what we’ve done is we’ve sacrificed children by closing down the schools in order to protect the adults because children don’t get very sick.”
Governor DeSantis and other opponents of mask mandates have the science and data on their side.
The Biden administration is trying to appease the teacher’s unions and corporate media activists by imposing a school mandate.
That decision could prove disastrous for Joe Biden in 2024.
