    Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis At Coronavirus Briefing Confused By Gloves and Mask Usage

    Hard to believe that this is a Governor, another good reason not to move to Florida.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Mystified By Gloves And How To Wear Them At Coronavirus Briefing

    Republican Ron DeSantis trended on Twitter for all the wrong reasons after he wore just one glove for a press conference.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) showed how not to use protective gloves during a press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic in Miami on Wednesday.

    DeSantis was criticized and ridiculed in equal measure on Twitter after he wore a glove on his left hand, but bizarrely not on his right. He also touched his face with his bare hand (against advice from public health officials) and clasped both hands together.

    DeSantis strikes me as the kind of guy who has spent a large portion of his life playing left home at away games.

    Clueless DeSantis also said this today:

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis falsely claimed Thursday that the novel coronavirus hasn't killed anyone under 25 nationwide while discussing a timeline for reopening schools in the state.

    "This particular pandemic is one where, I don't think nationwide there's been a single fatality under 25. For whatever reason it just doesn't seem to threaten, you know, kids," DeSantis said at an educators' meeting to discuss distance learning.
    I wonder if these people just watch Fox News and think they are getting accurate information? Don't they talk to medical professionals?

    Apparently he doesn't believe in experts, just like Trump (from today): "Trump says mass testing not needed to reopen the country, contradicting experts"

    Goodness, he really is an idiot. If SNL put that in a sketch, they'd worry about it going too far, because no one can actually be that stupid.

    Well, anyone dumb and indifferent enough about the risks to wear one glove at a CV19 event might as well lie his ass off or prove he's too ****ing lazy to ask a staffer a simple question before spouting ignorant bullcrap that would take his staffer 1 minute or less to verify for him on his iPhone.

    It's not like making idiotic, ignorant statements like that to educators as he's making plans to reopen schools impacts his credibility or anything....

    Not the most flattering photos in the world, and that's before the glove thing. Still, it's not the most ridiculous public official sighting in recent weeks. Could be that dude in Wisconsin all Hazmatted up saying it's safe to vote outside. Now that was epic.

    Except for the 2,572 cases in children under 18 that have already been confirmed as of last week. Coronavirus Disease 2019 in Children — United States, February 12–April 2, 2020 | MMWR

    So much ammunition for the Dems in Florida. It would be funny if not so damn tragic. Wake up Florida, you got a bonofied idiot in charge.

    Yep, like those who wear a mask over their nose and mouth but leave their eyes unprotected - the tear ducts drain directly into the nose.

    Why don't masks protect the wearer?

    There are several possible reasons why masks don't offer significant protection. First, masks may not do much without eye protection. We know from animal and laboratory experiments that influenza or other coronaviruses can enter the eyes and travel to the nose and into the respiratory system.

    While standard and special masks provide incomplete protection, special masks combined with goggles appear to provide complete protection in laboratory experiments. However, there are no studies in real-world situations measuring the results of combined mask and eyewear.

    The apparent minimal impact of wearing masks might also be because people didn't use them properly. For example, one study found less than half of the participants wore them "most of the time". People may also wear masks inappropriately, or touch a contaminated part of the mask when removing it and transfer the virus to their hand, then their eyes and thus to the nose.

    Masks may also provide a false sense of security, meaning wearers might do riskier things such as going into crowded spaces and places.

    And let's not forget all the Floridians standing in lines for unemployment compensation. Their system was purposely rigged to be as flawed as possible by the last Republican Governor:

    Already anxious about Trump’s chances in the nation’s biggest swing state, Republicans now are dealing with thousands of unemployed workers unable to navigate the Florida system to apply for help. And the blowback is directed straight at Trump’s top allies in the state, Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen.*Rick Scott.

    Privately, Republicans admit that the $77.9 million system that is now failing Florida workers is doing exactly what Scott designed it to do — lower the state’s reported number of jobless claims after the great recession.

    “It’s a sh-- sandwich, and it was designed that way by Scott,” said one DeSantis advisor. “It wasn’t about saving money. It was about making it harder for people to get benefits or keep benefits so that the unemployment numbers were low to give the governor something to brag about.”
