The very knowledgeable and highly professional “medical experts” on Twitter just diagnosed Ron DeSantis with a bad case of Covid:
“A video of the press conference has been widely shared, with some suggesting that his apparent difficulty in getting to the end of sentences was caused by a COVID-19 infection.”
As most of us have experienced, even a moderately serious case of Covid does not result in breathing difficulty. There are, however, clear signs by which you can tell that a person is unwell: cough, runny nose, confusion, visible exhaustion. All of these would be clearly visible long before a breathing issue, which would make Ron DeSantis (or anybody else) physically unable to hold a long press conference in front of a large crowd.
But instead of pointing out the absurdity of the latest “conspiracy theory,” the once-respected Newsweek ran with deranged speculations from MeidasTouch, which Newsweek diplomatically called “left-leaning” (read: so far left they consider Joy Reid a moderate):
Governor DeSantis’ Covid diagnosis is brought to you by the same “specialists” who diagnosed President Trump with a stroke after watching him walk down a flight of stairs in a 2 minute video:
“The hashtags “TrumpIsUnwell” and “TRUMPstroke” were trending on Twitter late Saturday and early Sunday.”
As it turned out, President Trump had difficulty walking down the stairs that were very slippery because of rainy weather. With all the expertise of Twitter “medical experts,” it’s a wonder they completely missed Joe Biden’s obvious physical challenges:
After a Covid diagnosis, every government official follows the same protocol that most of us do. The governor’s diagnosis and treatment would be a public matter, just as President Trump’s were. There is absolutely no advantage for Governor DeSantis to conceal his illness from the public, nor would it be possible for him to do so.
Ron DeSantis gives daily press briefings on various topics, handling questions for long periods of time. Just the other day, the Governor delivered a very powerful and effective State of the State address. His ability to formulate his thoughts clearly, deliver his message effectively, and not crumble under pressure, are there to see by everybody who follows him. Sometimes, a rigorous daily schedule and speaking for long periods of time can take a toll, diminishing a person’s ability to speak. The Governor’s wife is undergoing active cancer treatment and one can only imagine the stress and possible sleep deprivation that accompanies that situation. But that kind of analysis doesn’t get many “likes” for “medical experts” who have trouble getting real-world patients.
Because the Omicron variant is so prevalent here in Florida, Governor DeSantis getting Covid would not be a huge surprise to anybody. Multiple government officials have gotten it, no matter what protocols they follow or impose (here, here, and here.) If (or, very likely, when) the Governor gets Covid diagnosis, you will get the news promptly from his press team. The only thing the “conspiracy theorists” on Twitter will be able to contribute to the conversation is their hope that the governor suffers a slow and painful death.
Meanwhile, “the followers of the science” on Twitter are demanding that you take Covid advice from a guy so dumb he failed an audition for “Are you smarter than a 5th grader” show:
