Note the framing, which has already been done by other individuals and media outlets — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was missing from the public eye “as coronavirus cases hit new records in Florida.” Coronavirus cases hit a new high in the nation, and President Joe Biden was walking his puppy at his beach house. Coronaviruses his a new high in New York City, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was vacationing in Florida without a mask and fantasizing that her critics are just sexually frustrated because they can’t date her.

As we now know, DeSantis, while maintaining a daily schedule, was accompanying his wife to breast cancer treatments.

But at least two Democratic strategists weighed in on the subject, suggesting maybe he was too ill to appear in public.

Hey, cancer treatments only take a few hours.
