The Latest Episode of “Killing DeSantis:” He Has COVID, and He Is Not Telling You?

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:

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in Bay Area for 30 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.  I am currently a resident of Florida.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.

My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.

Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?

Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.

For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.

And for everything else, thanks to my family.
