Florida Governor Ron DeSantis ad that anyone accused of violating COVID restrictions in their state will be pardoned.

“It’s a total overrun,” he told Fox News host Laura Ingraham of the restrictions. “These things with health should be consultative, they shouldn’t be punitive.”

DeSantis then went directly to a couple who own a gym who faced up to 120 days in jail for allowing members of their gym to do without masks.

“I’m glad you have Mike and Jillian,” DeSantis told Ingraham, “and I’m also happy to be able to say that effective tomorrow morning, I will be signing a stay under my constitutional authority. . “

He noted that this would delay their case when the clemency council meets and “we will issue pardons not only for Mike and Jillian, but for any Floridian who may have outstanding offenses for things like masks and distancing. social. “

DeSantis will forgive COVID offenders

DeSantis went on to point out that wearing masks while exercising in a gym is absurd and in fact contrary to recommendations.

“The World Health Organization advises against it! It’s not healthy to do this in the first place, so it was a bad restriction, ”he argued.

The WHO website confirms this on their website.

“Even when you are in an area of ​​COVID-19 transmission, masks should not be worn during vigorous physical activity due to the risk of reducing your breathing capacity,” the site reads.

A governor who cares

DeSantis’ announcement should be cheered on by all who believe their rights and the rights of all Americans have been violated throughout the pandemic.

And the Republican frontrunner for the 2024 presidential nomination – if Donald Trump chose not to run – couldn’t help but pat himself on the back a bit.

“I think they were treated badly,” DeSantis said of gym owners and maybe other people who had been charged with COVID offenses, “but luckily they have a governor who does. worry.

DeSantis has often found himself symbolizing the governor of liberty and liberty, contrasted by the Democrats of the Blue State who have been the governors of oppression during the COVID pandemic.

Earlier this month, he announced that Florida was lifting all remaining state lockdown rules, saying the state “was no longer in a state of emergency.”

And before that, he took executive action to prohibit use “vaccine passports” by businesses or local governments and proudly proclaimed his state’s efforts to reopen safely and responsibly without onerous and arbitrary rules to suffocate citizens.

“We look around in other parts of our country and in too many places we see schools closed, businesses closed and lives destroyed,” he said during a speech to CPAC.

“Florida did it right and the lockdown states misunderstood it.”

Florida continues to do things right under Governor DeSantis.
