One of the things that has been counter to reality over the past year has been how Democrats and liberal media have praised the response of NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, while attacking President Donald Trump, Gov. Kristi Noem, and Governor Ron DeSantis.
This wasn’t connected to reality.
Cuomo’s response was particularly horrific with his nursing home order, lying about the numbers, and the coverup.
President Donald Trump made unprecedented moves partnering with companies to speed the process to a vaccine and rolling out a vaccination plan which is why the U.S. is well ahead of places like Europe who were mired in all kinds of regulations and liberal government nonsense. That saved countless lives.
Despite having an open economy and open schools, neither Florida nor South Dakota has suffered the disaster that Democrats and the media predicted.
Even CNN and some Democrats have had to concede that DeSantis’ effort was pretty good, that the death rate is no greater than the national average, despite having a concentrated, older population, and that they’ve done better than some who instituted more restrictions, as Axios observes. Meanwhile Florida’s unemployment rate is 5.1%, compared to 9.3% in California, 8.7% in New York, and 6.9% in Texas. Not to mention that children have been back in classrooms since this past fall.
