Joe Biden’s trying to save his Presidency by picking a fight with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
That effort took a turn that no one saw coming.
And Ron DeSantis just dealt Joe Biden a crushing setback that Biden never saw coming.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis resisted mask and vaccine mandates.
DeSantis ensured masks and vaccines are optional in Florida and promoted monoclonal antibodies as an effective early treatment.
That paid off as fewer Floridians are now entering the hospital.
And over the last two weeks hospitalization and COVID cases plummeted.
That enraged Joe Biden who accused DeSantis of enabling COVID by resisting Biden’s tyrannical mandates.
Because DeSantis and other red state governors stood up to Biden and proved that lockdowns, and mask and vaccine mandates, aren’t necessary, Biden sought to punish Florida and six other Republican-led states by cutting their shipments of lifesaving monoclonal antibodies.
Seriously @PressSec? “That is not accurate”?
Then explain why our supply has been cut from 72,000 to 30,950 treatments per week.
I’ll wait. But Floridians who have COVID can’t. https://t.co/H5a9e4r3uc

Biden is making a cruel attempt to kill Floridians and citizens of other red states by denying them lifesaving drugs.
But DeSantis found a way around Biden’s cruel move.
DeSantis vowed to fight like hell and announced a deal with GlaxoSmithKline to purchase their version of monoclonal antibodies.
“What I am doing though, is we’re going to try to cover the bases. I had a call yesterday with GlaxoSmithKline executives about their new monoclonal antibody… Sotrovimab was given EUA, I believe in May. So the Eli Lily one, which is kind of now coming back, but the Regeneron, that was at the end of 2020. Sotrovimab was given EUA in May. The clinical data on that was even better than the clinical data on the Regeneron, 85% reduction in hospitalizations,” DeSantis told reporters.
