(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, made a charge on Monday, saying that the White House has been telling whoppers about his state’s response to the FDA’s decision to allow kids under 5 to receive an mRNA vaccine for the coronavirus.
Which would not be a shocker at all, given that the Biden administration, along with other Democrats in and out of Congress, have made DeSantis one of their favorite targets because he refused to play along with their little ruse to strip power away from the American people during the thick of the pandemic.
Unlike many leaders in the U.S., DeSantis stood by his principles and refused to back down from what he believed was right. In doing that, he saved his state a lot of the agony the rest of the country is currently going through.
DeSantis was slammed by folks who usually defend him last week when the White House seemed to indicate that he had backed down from his opposition to vaccinating young kids and was “now permitting” health-care providers to put in an order for the vaccines for children.
“The governor explained last Thursday that the state – based on scientific evidence – had decided not to preorder the vaccine or participate in its distribution. But from the beginning, Florida said the vaccine would be available at health-care facilities in the state and could be ordered from the federal government through state internet portals,” WND reported.
“The White House is lying about it, surprise. Not surprised the White House would lie, definitely not surprised that legacy media would amplify the lie, because that’s what they do,” the Florida governor said. “The state of Florida, they came out with an article saying the state of Florida has not ordered, its Department of Health has not ordered mRNA jabs for the babies. Yes, we didn’t. We recommend against it.”
DeSantis, who has held consultations with epidemiologists from ivy league colleges like Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, and Yale, went on to say that his state is “not going to have any programs where we’re trying to jab 6-month-old babies with mRNA.”
“That’s just the reality. I think what they thought would happen was that we’d be embarrassed about it,” he added.
Then, over the weekend, many news outlets reported that DeSantis had “reversed course.”
“The governor explained Monday that Florida didn’t preorder the vaccine because the state has concluded they should not be administered to healthy children,” WND said in its report.
“And quite frankly, if someone wants to make a different decision, I would just caution people to look at the actual data in the clinical trial,” DeSantis explained.
Just for the record, no other country on earth has given authorization to administer coronavirus vaccines for kids under the age of five.

“In March, Florida’s surgeon general, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, announced the state had become the first to recommend against vaccinating healthy children for COVID-19. The announcement came at the end of an 85-minute roundtable of epidemiologists and other medical scientists hosted by DeSantis titled “The Curtain Close on COVID Theater,'” the report stated.
