DeSantis to Biden: ‘Reinstating COVID-19 Restrictions is Insane’

The fall-out from Joe Biden’s disastrous ‘Virus Independence Day‘ speech continues, after the President insinuated that states may have to reintroduce COVID restrictions if the virus doesn’t disappear completely, or to the satisfaction of the White House. Biden hinted that restrictions would continue into the summer and could ‘maybe’ be lifted after the 4th of July. 

“After a long, hard year, that will make this Independence Day truly special – where we not only mark our independence as a nation but we begin to mark our independence from this virus,” Biden told the country.

He also launched into a unhinged demagoguery rant, comparing all of the alleged COVID deaths with the combined death toll from World War One, World War Two, and the Vietnam War.

It was a bizarre public address, to say the least.

Predictably, this has triggered opposition from state governors – especially from those states who have already been open and have fully functioning economies, normal schools, and are seeing returning travel and tourism.

The Hill reports…

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Friday blasted President Biden‘s warning that the U.S. could need to reinstate certain coronavirus restrictions if the public does not stay “vigilant” about defeating COVID-19.

“To even contemplate doing any type of lockdown, honestly it’s insane,” DeSantis said during a press conference in Florida, touting the state’s efforts to administer vaccines to the elderly and other populations.

“That’s not gonna happen in the state of Florida,” the governor continued, referring to reinstating restrictions. “We’re gonna continue doing what works, but under no circumstances would we entertain anything of the sort.”

Biden has repeatedly vowed to not lock down the country but warned in a prime-time address Thursday night that some restrictions may have to be revisited if current downward trends change and the virus resurges.

He emphasized, though, that his administration is focused on helping the nation return to normal.

“Even if we devote every resource we have, beating this virus and getting back to normal depends on national unity,” Biden said. “And national unity isn’t just how politics and politicians vote in Washington, what the loudest voices say on cable or online. Unity is what we do as fellow Americans. Because if we don’t say vigilant and the conditions change, then we may have to reinstate restrictions to get back on track.”

“And, please, we don’t want to do that again,” he added.
