Tampa Bay Times:
“Gov. Ron DeSantis showed again this week how not to roll out the state’s vaccination supply. Steering thousands of doses to a wealthy Manatee County neighborhood was bad enough. But facing criticism, the governor doubled down, threatening to retaliate by diverting the vaccines to other counties. This bad decision, and the governor’s petulance, will only divide Floridians at the very time residents are looking for hope and encouragement. DeSantis needs to show better judgment, more personal restraint and a greater regard for basic fairness.”
In other words, DeSantis steers vaccines towards wealthy loyalists in specific counties so they can jump the queue, tries to excuse it by saying he’s helping the elderly (just so happens its the elderly only in a couple of wealthy counties of his preferred supporters).
I so do love seeing all of the news in its entirety and not just cherry picked details of it. Seems so much more objective and less emotionally geared that way. Gov. DeSantis, lose the ‘tude | Editorial (tampabay.com)
