Ron DeSantis Silences Reporter Pushing Fake Narrative: “I just disabused you of the narrative and you don’t care about the facts”
By MAGA Conservatives, March 24, 2021
Rising star Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis proved again why he is he front runner for the GOP nomination in 2024 should Trump not run when he dismantled a reporter during his press conference over rumors he unfairly favored a supermarket chain in the vaccine rollout because of a donation to his political committee.
“First of all, what you’re saying is wrong, that’s a fake narrative,” Rod DeSantis said silencing the reporter. DeSantis went on to say the first pharmacies to get the vaccine in his state were CVS and Walgreens, not Publix. They had a long-term care mission so they were going to the long-term care facilities. They got vaccine in the middle of December, they started going to the long-term care facilities the third week of December. So it was their mission – that was very important and we trusted them to do that.”
“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,” he added.
He continued saying that Publix was “the first one to raise their hand and say they were ready to go. I had three counties — I actually showed up that weekend and talked to seniors across four different Publix.
Based on 100% feedback from seniors Ron said they expanded the program: “So we expanded it. He said some cities, like Palm Beach, “were kind of struggling at first,” so he met with leaders and said, “we can do more drive-through sites, we can give more to hospitals, we can do the Publix thing, we can do this.”
“They calculated that 90% of their seniors live within a mile and a half of a Publix and they said we think that would be the easiest thing for our residents. So we did that.”“Almost 75% of the seniors in Palm Beach” have been vaccinated “and the reason is because you have the strong retail footprint.”
“So our way has been multifaceted, it has worked. And we’re also now very much expanding CVS and Walgreens now that they’ve completed the long-term care mission.”
When the reporter would take the truth for an answer Ron shot back, “It’s wrong, it’s wrong, it’s a fake narrative.”
“I just disabused you of the narrative and you don’t care about the facts because obviously I laid it out for you in a way that is irrefutable, and so it’s clearly,” DeSantis said.
“No, no, no. You’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re wrong.”
