Ron DeSantis says he's 'offended' that a police officer 'could potentially lose their job' over COVID-19 vaccine mandates

  Ron DeSantis says he's 'offended' that a police officer 'could potentially lose their job' over COVID-19 vaccine mandates Gov. DeSantis, a potential 2024 presidential candidate, said last month that President Biden's federal vaccine mandate was a violation of Florida law. "Let's not have Biden come in and effectively take away - threaten to take away - the jobs of people who have been working hard throughout this entire pandemic," DeSantis said during a news conference this week. "I am offended that a police officer could potentially lose their job.""I just think it's fundamentally wrong to be taking people's jobs away, particularly given the situations that we see ourselves facing with the economy," he added.

Mary Trump, the niece of the former president Donald Trump, has said that the opposition of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to COVID restrictions should not be viewed as good politics.

Trump appeared to criticize the Republican governor's resistance to implementing coronavirus mask and vaccine mandates amid a spike in cases in the Sunshine State due to the highly contagious delta variant.

She tweeted on Wednesday: "Maybe it's time for the media to start referring to DeSantis as a homicidal sociopath instead of a savvy politician."

South Florida Hospital Chain Admitted 1,600 Overnight, Puts Beds in Cafeteria Amid Surge

  South Florida Hospital Chain Admitted 1,600 Overnight, Puts Beds in Cafeteria Amid Surge The hospital system typically doesn't have more than 1,400 patients admitted at one time.Dr. Marc Napp, chief medical officer for the Memorial Healthcare System, said at a news conference Wednesday that the chain is dealing with an unprecedented surge of hospitalizations. "This is the highest number of patients Memorial has ever seen," he said. "It's the sheer number coming in at the same time. There are only so many beds, so many doctors, only so many nurses.

Trump, a psychologist who pulled no punches in criticism of her uncle and extended family in her book Too Much and Never Enough also repeatedly condemned the Republican Party's COVID response when it was in power.

In a follow-up tweet, she shared an image of someone in an ICU.

"It's horrifying to know that tens of millions of Americans think this is a reasonable price to pay as long as they don't have to suffer the inconvenience of wearing a mask or getting a free, readily available vaccine. But here we are," Mary Trump wrote.

Her criticism of DeSantis comes as he faces a backlash for his COVID response. His state saw more than 51,000 new cases over the three days to Tuesday, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Ron DeSantis Goes All In on Vaccine Skepticism

  Ron DeSantis Goes All In on Vaccine Skepticism No more playing coy.

DeSantis has prioritized the opening of the economy and has gone against advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in issuing an executive order forbidding school districts from mandating masks this year.

DeSantis's COVID-19 response is a key feature for his reelection bid for 2022 and his campaign has criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, for what it calls the "devastating consequences" of lockdowns.

However, the wisdom of DeSantis's stance is under question after a poll this week showed that two Democratic challengers for next year, Nikki Fried and former Governor Charlie Crist, have closed the double-digit lead the governor had only two months ago.

Also, 62 percent of those asked in the survey conducted by St. Pete's Polls believed that children should wear masks when they return to school, including 84 percent of Democrats and 66 percent of independents.
