Governor DeSantis and Florida’s Covid disaster. Because the delta variant rages within the state, he refuses to budge on defending youngsters, kids and even permitting non-public enterprise homeowners to guard themselves and their prospects. He is simply rooting for Covid.

We might not have had —
WILSON: — you realize, they might have carried out the correct factor. Regardless of in case you agree or disagree with them politically.
WILSON: All of them gave a shit — oop, sorry — gave a rattling concerning the individuals of Florida —
