DeSantis, has spent the majority of his time in office showing former President Donald Trump how good he can hold things down, hoping that one day the president will realize that he’s a much better ball carrier than South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. Obviously I’m talking about golf.

DeSantis has balked at COVID-19 mandates from the beginning, calling his state an “oasis of freedom” even as case numbers spiked over the winter, the Post reports. Just last week, DeSantis “signed a law suspending all coronavirus restrictions across Florida beginning July 1 and issued executive orders allowing him to supersede any local emergency measures such as mask mandates, school closures and business restrictions. Last September, he also suspended fines and penalties for those violating local ordinances,” the Post reports.

Florida, folks. America’s butthole.

In March, one-half of the outlaws, turned down a plea deal in March, and now “faces 120 days in jail on two second-degree misdemeanor charges, while Jillian could see 60 days for one second-degree misdemeanor.”


“Effective tomorrow morning, I’m going to sign a reprieve under my constitutional authority, so that will delay the case for 60 days against both of them,” DeSantis said, adding that anyone else who violated local pandemic mandates during that time would also be pardoned.

DeSantis added that it’s “not even right” to wear masks while exercising.

“The World Health Organization advises against it,” he said. “It’s not healthy for people to be doing that in the first place, so it was a bad restriction.”


Look, the mask mandate during workouts was super confusing.

“Last December, the WHO said that people should not wear masks during ‘vigorous intensity physical activity,’” the Post reports. “But in February, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offered the opposite guidance, urging people to wear masks while doing intense workouts, pointing to case studies showing that gyms had repeatedly been superspreaders of the virus.”


Then it was announced that gyms were superspreader places, so the CDC definitely wanted folks wearing masks and gyms to have better ventilation.

DeSantis added that public health guidelines “should be advisory,” not “punitive.”


“And so we’re happy to use our constitutional authority,” the governor said. “I think they’ve been treated poorly, and fortunately, they’ve got a governor that cares.”
