Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) blasted reporters Wednesday for their double-standard regarding coronavirus masks.
When confronted about maskless residents celebrating in the streets Sunday following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl win, Florida Gov. DeSantis called out reporters for excusing liberals who don’t wear masks:
“The media’s worried about that, obviously. You guys really love that.
“You don’t care as much if it’s a ‘peaceful protest.’ Then it’s fine. You don’t care as much if they’re celebrating a Biden election. You only care about it if it’s people you don’t like.
“So, I’m a Bucs fan. I’m damn proud of what they did on Sunday night.”
As Breitbart.com reports, media ignored and excused liberals who neglected to wear masks during mass post-election victory celebrations and destructive protests:
“DeSantis’s claim of selective outrage from members of the establishment media holds true, as Democrat officials largely praised — and in some cases participated in — the mass protests that dominated U.S. cities last year following the death of George Floyd.
“Similarly, Democrats flocked to the streets in November after the mainstream media declared President Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election.”
