On "The Rubin Report," BlazeTV host Dave Rubin of shared a clip of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) blasting President Joe Biden 's reaction to the Omicron variant of COVID-19. The Biden administration announced Thursday a series of new "actions" to combat the new variant, but DeSantis pointed out that current infection rates in states with the most draconian restrictions are, in many cases, significantly higher than states without.
"[Biden] basically sold the public a bill of goods said that he would shut [COVID-19] down. He's not shutting it down. So what they're doing now, I think is just not going to have any impact on mitigating COVID. It's more theater," DeSantis said while speaking at the Pensacola National Guard Armory.
"Florida, we have the the lowest COVID rate in the country ... if you look in the Covidestem Project, which is Yale, Harvard, Stanford," he continued. "But a lot of those places that have the high [rate of] infections, they have mandates, and they have passports, and they have all these things. So, I just think we need to get real here, and we should not be imposing any type of mandates or restrictions on the American people, especially when you don't do that for people that are coming into this country illegally."
