WATCH as CNN’s Briana Keilar Calls Out Ron DeSantis for “Being Such an Ass”
The Coronavirus has hit nearly every state in the nation hard. And some of those states that didn’t get hit hard at the beginning to the pandemic had governors happy to pat themselves on the back. No one patted themselves on the back harder than Florida’s Ron DeSantis.
DeSantis, who models his leadership after Donald Trump declared victory over COVID-19 back on May 20th. Just 6 days ago, though, the Governor extended Florida’s State of Emergency.
The state, which has a massive senior citizen population has had a disastrous vaccine roll-out. There have been numerous reports of seniors camping out overnight in order to get access to the shots.
Reporter Rosa Flores doggedly pressed DeSantis about the issue on Monday. Rather than taking any blame, the Governor attacked both the state’s hospital system and Flores, herself.
CNN’s Brianna Kielar had Flores as a guest on her Tuesday show and pulled no punches when it came to DeSantis. The host told her guest:
“I think maybe one of the reasons the governor might have been frustrated is that you have been a tireless questioner of Governor DeSantis as Florida has had a number of issues with its coronavirus response, which might be part of the reason why he was being such an ass instead of just answering your question at a time when Floridians need answers and their health and their lives are at stake.”
