CNN has finally admitted that Florida Gov Ron DeSantis has succeeded in guiding his state safely through the pandemic with their economy intact. In fact, Florida came out of better than any other state their size.

Disneyland just reopened this week, but Disney World in Orlando, Florida reopened nine months ago. The unemployment rate for Florida is 4.8% but in California, it’s 9%.  That’s almost double for you liberals out there.

CNN took a beating on social media by ill-informed liberals who don’t have a clue what they are talking about.

Did they want DeSantis to send COVID-positive patients to nursing homes? Shut down the state and ruin their economy? Throw 9% of their workers into unemployment lines?

Ask any New Yorker or Californian if they would trade their governor for DeSantis and if they were smart and honest, it would be a resounding yes.

Social Media comments included:

“CNN you’re out of your f***ing minds for this headline,” tweeted DJ Ross One.

“Get the f*** out of here with this s**t,” replied screenwriter Dan Hernandez.

“CNN pushing this narrative that DeSantis is some kind of hero is f***ing bulls***,” said David Weiner.

“Like, What The Actual F***, CNN? Don’t you have access to the same information *I* have on DeSantis’ execrable record on his pandemic response?” replied another user who identified herself as a mother.

“Who the f**k wrote this nonsense article? DeSantis has shunned science and silenced the public health officials in his state. He makes sure upper class, white people get vaccinated over minorities. He’s such a leader,” responded another sore user.

The article also pointed out that Florida is booming compared to other states that locked down their economies.

DeSantis refused to implement a mask mandate in the first place, making him an outlier a year ago. At the time, he was hewing closely to President Donald Trump’s playbook, which he argued at the time was good for business.

The unemployment rate in Florida is 4.8 %, according to the latest figures from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, compared to 6.8% in Texas, 8.8% in New York and 9% in California.
