DeSantis Says Biden Is Punishing Florida By Withholding COVID Treatments!

Certainly, there has been no love lost between Florida’s Governor and the President during Joe Biden’s tumultuous first year in office. The two have often tussled over mask mandates and other COVID-related issues.

Now, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is accusing the POTUS of purposely withholding much-needed COVID treatments from Floridians. 

In a recent interview, DeSantis said Joe Biden’s officials are using coronavirus narratives for political purposes to attack his policies in the Sunshine State. The Republican governor stressed that in September, the federal government seized control over the shipments of monoclonal antibodies and other COVID cures. He added, Biden then cut supplies to Florida and Texas – two states whose governors have been at odds with Biden over mask and vaccine mandates.

“Under the Biden administration, not only are they not promoting therapeutics, they’re trying to stymie the distribution of things like monoclonal antibodies in states like Florida and Texas,” explained the DeSantis.

This came after Florida’s surgeon general said that the Biden administration is hindering his state’s efforts to cure its COVID patients.

“I just think it’s counter to their messaging and their narrative…when I rolled out our monoclonal antibodies sites over the summer, they attacked because they said ‘oh…you’re against vaccines if you are for therapeutics’ when actually we had a lot of vaccinated people that were going,” DeSantis stated. “It wasn’t all unvaccinated, but regardless you want to have treatment options.

The Florida Republican also said Biden’s COVID response is very partisan, and it does not serve the best interest of the American people.

DeSantis told Fox News in an interview that aired Sunday, Jan. 9, that the ongoing barrage of bad press and criticism from Washington is “all political.” He stressed he’s honestly fighting to provide Floridians with treatment options like monoclonal antibodies to go along with White House-supported vaccines while allowing residents to choose whether they want to be injected with the serums in the first place.

“We set up these centers this summer when we started to see the delta variant rear its head, and it worked. We were keeping tens of thousands of people out of the hospital, saved thousands of lives. No one disputes that,” DeSantis said of Florida’s monoclonal antibody treatment sites. 

“Well, as that was happening in September, the federal government decided to seize control of the monoclonal antibodies and cut supplies to Florida and Texas, mainly.”

When that happened, DeSantis recounted, he contacted Brentford, England-based GlaxoSmithKline to contract for treatments of sotrovimab, which continued to help Floridians facing coronavirus infections.

When omicron appeared and DeSantis again sought such treatments, Biden’s Health and Human Services department reportedly balked.

“‘Oh, Florida, you use too much of it,'” he recalled. 

“Well, part of the reason we use more than other states is because we’ve actually embraced treatment. Most of these other governors and the people like Fauci and the federal leadership, they basically say get a shot, wear a mask, and they never talk about treatment.”

DeSantis when on to imply that the reason that Biden has held back needed medication from Florida is because of DeSantis’ successful rollout of treatments goes against Biden’s “pro-vaccine” yet “anti-treatment” narrative.

  1. Gov. DeSantis followed the call for preventers he wouldn’t need to worry about anti-treatment. This man is an idiot and hopes to run for President. DeSantis is after the Trumpers, just scary.

    • And you are an idiot. Florida had one of the lowest Covid rates in the country until Biden unleash the borders on Florida and stopped other treatment options. Or maybe a brain dead person like you doesn’t realize vaccinated people come down with Covid as well. And if you don’t think that Biden is stopping the treatments for Florida and Texas for political reasons then you’re a bigger idiot than I thought

    • So how is the preventing practices going? All time high of infections and hospitalization.

  2. I am 75 years old and I have never seen such vindictive behavior from a President of the United States. Not sure Americans can survive 3 more years of Joe Biden!

    • Me neither! Imagine what America is going to look like by that time! We simply cannot have 3 more years of Biden/Kamala something has to be done. The whole world is laughing at us for putting these to in our White House and rightly so. The DEms have made it louder and clearer that they are not for making and keeping America great. Get these tow out any way possible. Maybe with a lasso if necessary. LOL

    • Yes, Biden is a very childish minded whatever – cannot call him our President.

  3. Yes… you’re right.. sad state of affairs for a President to be partial.. he is suppose to be for all of the American people first… also not putting foreigners before his own country.
    He is the President of the United States his job is to do that… seek the best for this country, not the countries of the world and destroy this country. It certainly looks to me as though his agenda is to bring us down, while he is laughing about it. That’s insane.

  4. Biden’s action are CRIMINAL and he should be impeached for such actions !!
    Shameful for anyone, let alone The President of the Inited States!!!!

  5. He’ll be dead soon enough, dementia patients eventually forget how to breathe.
    Then comes Cackling Camel-a., and Drunk Pelosi.

  6. Biden is vindictive and childish. It’s his way or you die. I just read an article written by the CEO of Pfizer who admitted that the vaccine does not work even with the booster. Biden is trying really hard to turn the USA into a socialist nation.

  7. Christine, God says “Judge not lest ye be judged”, therefore know that He will protect His own and the true idiots will be revealed in His timing! DeSantis has done a thousand times more to keep Floridians freedoms intact, than the current administration will ever do! The current administration is set on destroying this country whichever way they can, especially by continued promotion of a plandemic!
