Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis chastised a reporter during a Tuesday morning press conference for “blaming the kids” who contracted COVID-19 because they purportedly weren’t wearing face masks.
“You’re blaming the kids saying they weren’t wearing masks and so they’re in the ICU,” DeSantis told the reporter after the question, which wasn’t discernable from the video. “With all due respect, I find that deplorable to blame a victim who ends up being hospitalized. You don’t know their story! You don’t know what happened with that.”
