He won’t be coming back after this…
Governor Ron DeSantis was pestered by a reporter recently who claimed without evidence that Desantis gave Publix COVID-19 vaccination rights because of their previous donation of $100,000 to his committee.
DeSantis said, “First of all, what you’re saying is wrong, that’s a fake narrative. As we got into January, we wanted to expand the distribution points … you had some drive-through sites, you had hospitals that were doing a lot, but we wanted to get it into communities more, so we reached out to other retail pharmacies: Publix, Walmart — obviously CVS and Walgreens had to finish that mission and we said we’re going to use you as soon as you’re done with that.”
“I had three counties — I actually showed up that weekend and talked to seniors across four different Publix. So we expanded it.”
DeSantis shut down the reporter saying, “It’s wrong, it’s wrong, it’s a fake narrative.”
