We noted on Thursday that #WheresRon was in full swing, with the Washington Post amplifying the voices of Democratic strategists assuming Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was either on vacation or ill with COVID while the coronavirus spiked to new levels in his state. Christina Pushaw posted the governor’s public schedule for every day since December 22, but that still wasn’t enough. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to dunk on DeSantis after she was called out for vacationing in his free state while cases in New York City reached new records.
Fox News on Friday reported that while people claimed DeSantis was “missing,” he was actually accompanying his wife to her cancer treatments. You’d think that would shut some people up, but blue-check Lesley Abravanel said it was just more spin and cancer treatments only take a few hours.
Spin, spin spin. While I feel for his wife, cancer treatments take a few hours. He is the governor of a state in crisis. If he can’t govern and be there for his wife he should resign. https://t.co/v8njeefQbA #FoxNews

Right? I mean if he takes care of his wife and kids for a few days, who’s gonna make sure all YOUR needs are met while he’s doing that?
After all, you obviously can’t take care of yourself.

Especially during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, when everyone’s off, including the president.

This is such a horrible take.

It's the Christmas season, his wife is dealing with cancer treatments, he has had meetings scheduled…but you heard on social media that not enough of his time was accounted for and decided it's a problem?

Cancer treatments may only take a few hours but the after effects can be debilitating. Caring for one’s spouse should be applauded not sneered at just for political gotcha games

Now do Mayor Pete taking 2 weeks off for paternity leave during a supply chain crisis.

Umm… @GavinNewsom completely disappeared for 10 days to go “trick or treating.” But you were good with that, right? 🤦🏼♀️

It’s only January 1st, but I think we have the most vile tweet of 2022 already…

Why is Biden not getting dragged for punting the COVID response to the states and then flying off to his beach house in Delaware when Omicron cases were surging? We know why.
‘Any apology?’ Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s attempt to slam Gov. Ron DeSantis during her Florida vacation looks even worse now https://t.co/DZ2C0118Go
