Like DeathSantis has a care about omicron. He's running for president. People dying in the streets isn't even a blip on his radar

He's not going to have any voters left, and will probably lose 80-20 in 2022, no matter how much he cooks the books.

it's looking like omicron may be bad news for kids too young to vaxx. and for people with health conditions that can weaken the immune system.

hey, you know who has 3 really young kids and a wife fighting breast cancer?

the Darling DeathSantis family, that's who!

and you know who DID vaxx, but vaxxed with J&J? Ronny and Casey, that's who!


so perhaps Ronny DeDeath will get to know omicron very, very personally. that might even distract him from his reelection campaign.....

Leaving Tampa this morning. Saw the TSA turn two different people away from the security checkpoint because they didn't have masks. Told them to get a mask if they want to come in and sent them back to the terminal on the shuttle train. TSA guy wasn't phased in the least -  said it happens all the time. Florida is boned if Omicron is as bad as Delta.

Of course they go back on the shuttle...unmasked....

The airport should have people stationed at the entrance of the terminals stopping people at that point.

DeathSantis could stand there and watch his whole family die of COVID and barely survive it himself and it wouldn't phase him one bit.  He's an evil piece of shiat who sold his soul for power long ago.

Headline led me to believe that Desantis himself had tested positive for the Omicron variant.

You're exactly right and that just backs up what my grandma used to say: "Never trust an orphan."

He's (secretly) triple vaccinated and can get all the fancy treatments that regular assholes like you and me couldn't afford for free, so he doesn't need to care.

Every child over six months old can get a flu vaccine:

And it protects against severe COVID-19.

/This has been known since shortly after the pandemic started, too. And it has held up to the scrutiny of actual science since then.

//There are a few more vaccines that protect against COVID-19, too.

61,000 dead Floridian MAGATs.

What was his margin of victory again?

Oh yeah.  32,000.
 
2021-12-04 11:21:28 AM  
Also I'm pretty sure the messaging is going to be that he kept the economy open and that Florida "resolved" COVID the quickest.

Granted, that is because we did a speedrun of getting everyone vaccinated, infected, or dead with no real care for how many preventable deaths we could have had...

He's a monster who will gladly have his sick wife AND all his kids eaten by Omicron then use that to run for president.  After all the time in the pandemic and watching republicans gladly sacrificing their families for their insane political beliefs, nothing is beyond them at this stage.

I try and look on the bright side - the more Florida people die, the closer I get to finding a nice live-aboard sailboat at estate-sale prices.
 
2021-12-04 11:23:33 AM  
We're like 4 weeks away from sheer hell at hospitals. Things are bad now, but when you see 500% increase in covid in countries with Omicron, the other shoe is just two weeks behind.

It's gonna go back to ambulance lines and care rationing. Don't get in a car crash.

I saw "Trump - DeSantis 2024" flags whilst driving through Bumblefark, Nebraska a couple of weeks ago. So he's got voters in Bumblefark, Nebraska.

You forget, a crooked Republican can win with 100% of the voters voting against them.

A quote attributed to a Republican comrade:
'Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything."

And if you had a choice of stealing the election, or going to jail after Maxwell testifies about Trump being a pedophile, which would you pick?

Omicron -- anecdotally or simply early on -- is picking on children 5 and under.

And the Norwegian Omicron super-spreader event consisted of people who were already vaccinated**. Florida is just a petri dish of death.


**Their reactions to Omicron were mild but they were definitely sick.

Might just need to build a wall at the florida border. Not that the surrounding southern states are much, if any better, but their population numbers are nowhere near as unmanageable.

When you control election results, you can claim that dying from a virus is wildly popular with voters.

Republicans.
 
2021-12-04 11:41:16 AM  
He's been doing what he can to hide and/or delay the true numbers of deaths this entire year, using methods no other states use. Odds are he found some way of hiding the true number of new infections so that they show lower than they actually are, but that he believes he can defend when someone figures it out.

Hm, some of the state to state comparisons are interesting. Florida is effectively tied with California for excess in the rankings.

Only Hawaii comes out looking good. Everywhere else is at best less bad than the others.
