“At The Beach In Delaware” Florida Gov. DeSantis Responds To “Vacation” Criticism

Responding to reporters on Monday, about taking a day off to be with his wife for chemotherapy last Wednesday, Florida Governor DeSantis slammed those on the left.

“I should have been at the beach in Delaware. Right. And then they would have been really happy with that,” said DeSantis.

“They’re like, oh my god, he’s on vacation and I’m like, you know. I just looked at my wife and said, going to the hospital with you is not a vacation for you. I know that and it’s not a vacation for me. I mean, this is something that, as a husband, I think that I should be doing, I’ve accompanied her to all her chemotherapy treatments. She’s there for a long time. I’m there most of the time but it’s a draining thing when she’s done with it. It’s not something that that’s great to see,” said DeSantis.

Left-wingers like Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings, state Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, and even U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York felt compelled to bash the Republican governor.

Critics on social media claimed DeSantis was absent while the state was in “crisis” or “on fire” with COVID.

Critics looked ridiculous after it was revealed DeSantis had spent time assisting his wife, Casey, as she underwent treatment for breast cancer – and as a maskless AOC turned up in Miami New Year’s Eve as her own state was swamped with new infections. 

Welcome to Florida, AOC! We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to @RonDeSantisFL ’s leadership.

“I just think a lot of people, particularly people that have gone through breast cancer treatments, the notion, that, that (chemotherapy) would be considered a vacation, I think is offensive to a lot of those folks,” said DeSantis.

“It was dumb, there was a foot fault obviously on their part, it wasn’t effective,” said DeSantis.
