Ron DeSantis' roadshow.

Ron DeSantis has given up all pretense of governing on behalf of Floridians whenever it conflicts with an opportunity to posture for the MAGA base. Currently, he's fighting school boards around the state that want to enforce mask mandates while the Delta variant surges. At the same time, he's touring the state to preside over the opening of monoclonal antibody therapy treatment centers in an almost daily pursuit of photo ops. The governor wants you to know that AFTER you get sick (often because of discouraged mask use and indifferent vaccination levels) you should get to a monoclonal antibody site without delay. He's RegeneRon.

Florida is a magnet for politicians who are totally devoid of human warmth and empathy. DeSantis fits snugly in the mold of the robotic, soulless Rick Scott and the rabid, self-absorbed Former Guy. Ron DeSantis is prepared to climb over as many dead bodies as necessary to realize his personal dream of instituting an authoritarian American presidency.
