Dr. Anthony Fauci quickly became the most trusted face of the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. But his frequent flip-flops, connections to China, penchant for being wrong, and bizarre praise of New York’s pandemic response have since made him the most controversial as well.

And you’re probably also aware that Governor Ron DeSantis took a more pro-freedom approach to the pandemic than blue states typically did, and Florida benefited greatly from it. In fact, even CNN acknowledged earlier this year that Florida was booming and that “DeSantis’ gamble to take a laissez faire approach appears to be paying off.”
DeSantis is now selling “Don’t Fauci My Florida” merchandise in his gubernatorial campaign store.
NEW TODAY: Our team just dropped EXCLUSIVE merchandise on our brand-new @WINRED storefront.
Trust us… You don’t want to miss out on this. 👀

I recently reported that the media was trying to manufacture a rift between Trump and DeSantis If that were true, would DeSantis be selling merch inspired by Trump’s campaign branding?
