  • Gods Watching says:

    Thanks to all my american brothers and sisters in florida doing what they can to slow this virus to keep our hospitals from getting flooded.

  • Gov. Cuomo of New York could have take similar steps way back in late (or even early) January and before Trump ordered a travel restriction Jan 31, since this outbreak was really know by 12/31, and then again, 2/31 is another point Cuomo could have take the steps. Notice how Govenors of states can shut down travel, like airports, and yet did Cuomo do any of that. Nope, just wait to get the perfect storm and manage the mitigation as part of the plan all along to show Democrats can have some level of competence. Yet, Chris Cuomo, his own brother does not listen and infects their mom, and then Cuomo doesn't like Trump wanting to Quarantine the city. Cuomo you have New Yorkers who a) won't listen to you and b) don't give three billion craps about other people as they are the true deplorables, and many of those people have money are related to people that live int he Hamptons and Florida, and many are friends of Bloomberg too, or family, and they are literal carriers of a pandemic to places like yours. You should call up Cuomo Gov DeSantis and say "Hey, Mr. Ineffective Govenor who acted way too late and nay say others that maybe its time to start listening to Trump, or if you think you can do a better job, then start making wiser decisions".

    Now for the Joke portion of the comment:

    If only Andrew Gillum had won the Florida Govenor's race then they could have open borders right now in this time of crisis, and accusations of racism again any who disagrees.

    Andrew we are sad for you. If you need help or would like us your supporters to rent you a hotel room, and maybe a special companionship, let us know. We can also get you some knee pads. We think they'd be a great present for you.

  • The governor of Florida was only pretending to be a "recovering dumbass"; he issued a "stay at home" order then gave idiotic churches an exception so their splendidly ignorant, credulity-driven, delusional asses can pass the virus to the rest of Florida. What a silly asshat!

  • Too Little, Too Late DeSantis ๐Ÿ˜”
    Sorry Sir/Maโ€™am..but your Test has come back as โ€œPOSITIVEโ€

  • hey desantis. dont blame spring break on the CDC for not warning you. your state is in a world of hurt because of idiots like you, youre just as bad as those spring break kids. there was plenty of people warning you. maybe if you republicans would watch something besides fox news you would get some real info once in a while.

  • Looks like Florida may set the record! Floridians are the ones already exposed! Not enough testing! ๐Ÿ‘‘โ˜ ๏ธ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿ˜

  • Spoiled tomatoes says:

    I heard there are 300 Americans Americans on this cruise ship? I think Florida is in real trouble and the governor is part of it. I hope it works out for the people in that state and everyone stays well!!

  • Tiffany Powers says:

    Here's to hoping he'll shake everyone's hand, hugs & kisses. Maybe he, his family and a bunch of his supporters can find a very small building to meet up at and spend several days in it.

    Stay at home?
    Can stay at friends home and relatives home or shelter home or stranger home?

    What's zaadan doing with laden saatan ICBM.

  • Ron DeSantis is incompetent. This governor puts more of his efforts trying to stop local counties from banning plastic bag than he would trying to stop the coronavirus. This is what happens when you vote for a hard-right Trump ally.

  • Sign your fate Governor DeSantis Floridians have told you we don't want those ships those sick people brought into our state sign your end mr. DeSantis voting right around the corner send them to the hospital ship up there in New York clown you made us look like idiots with the beaches open clown I see you didn't come down on St Johns County St Augustine Florida for leaving the beaches open clown

  • The hotspot of Miami Dade county and Hillsborough county have had stay at home orders for a while. Why shut down the entire state when only a few counties are bad and already have guidelines in place. People want to find a reason to criticize

  • So they say every day of inaction can be 10-15% increased infection rate. This is not going to look very good in Florida in a few weeks and some of those dying Floridians will have their governor to thank.

  • Florida is going to be an absolute train wreck because DeSantis waited so long to make the stay at home order. DeSantis is a flaming idiot who will be responsible for many needless deaths.

  • Craig Williams says:

    Dear Stupid People: what are you doing on a cruise ship? And the rest of you, stay at home or donโ€™t expect assistance. Bye.

  • 1Shame Update Read Learn
    Come buy your art supplies or whatever you want today. No enforced rules for many stores (Thats Bad)
    "Bad reporting" By the news on covid 19 virus people shopping in stores like it's a party out there not practicing safe habits and almost no video by the news, not good slanted news. All kinds of nonessential with essentials being bought in unsafe ways.

    All one has to do is go into a local home depot, Lowes( wear proper PPE) or other store like walmart or meijers in Michigan and people are shopping not in a safe ways like its a holiday for shopping spreading covid 19 because of bad practices not being enforced or explained well, burying one's head in the sand doesn't make covid 19 go away and not showing whats going on in stores. Better rules would save 1000s of lives but Politicians and the media are doing a terrible job letting this go on. Essentials only to keep one alive, no need to buy planting dirt a new shed, paint for that honey do list ect… get the picture, because that's the hard truth what is going on, and no one cares or is doing anything about it. Shame on many. Shame

  • Trump and pence continue to push states action. Gop governors are waiting for federal leadership. How does this make any sense?

  • The Question 2.0 says:

    This is 3 weeks too late. If they were smart they would have done it right when disney did. The economy would be better off.

  • Stephen Brand says:

    There is endless footage of Trump dismissing and downplaying the danger posed by this virus. Now we have more cases than any other country and a guaranteed recession deeper than anything weโ€™ve ever seen before. Heโ€™s making governors compete with each other and the federal government for supplies. This is what happens when you put a reality tv star in charge of our country.

  • In Trump We Trust says:

    Someone give thanks to Ron desantis, I am wondering how many people is going to get sick and die after the 200 sick people from the cruise ship disembark in Florida. Put them on quarantine and when they get better pullem of the ship.

  • roachtoasties says:

    After the virus is embedded in Florida and spreading like wildfire, then the governor issues a stay-at-home order. Too late, as things are set for Florida maybe being the next Italy, or worse. Our fault, though. We elected these idiots.

  • Bruconic Inferno N4NO CLAN says:

    EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE WEARING MASKS. Make your own masks if needed. A towel or shirt is ok, just cover your mouth and nose. Trump has FAILED miserably.

  • orlando pereira says:

    DeSantis is Trump b**ch help him get elected by a small margin. No wonder the idiot is asking the WH for expert advise for stay at home order. What planet is he on? Does he need to ask the WH to take a ๐Ÿ’ฉ

  • There is no justification for this shutdown and wasteful spending. The economic damage will resonate for decades and the virus will still be here. Just like the cold and flu virus, this virus is something we will just need to learn to deal with.

  • TomJeffersonWasRight says:

    Could, would, hope , think. Governor, please take control and start talking "YOU WILL". Hoping for people to do the right thing is a good way to get us all killed. I share your hopes, but prefer to see an armed National Guardsman directing the actions of likely Virus carriers. Obviously, anyone who just got on a cruise ship in spite of what has happened to other ships, has little or no judgement.

  • Why didnโ€™t they ask why he didnโ€™t do that much earlier?!! Bc he happens to be a REPUBLICAN thatโ€™s why!!! If heโ€™d be a DEMOCRAT theyโ€™d blast his arse so hard!!!!

  • First priority is to stay home or safe isolation. It is the best solution to flatten the curve. Floridian can also help to fight COVID-19 by washing hands every chance they get for 20 seconds, make a homemade mask and wear mask to stop the spread and getting yourself infected. Always watch updates and follow other instructions how to keep your family safe. Just saying.

  • Send every last one of them no matter what chitizenship they have back to where they got o that boat. Every last one of them knew not to get on any ship.

  • Real American says:

    So this virus may return in the fall? Sorry folks. HERD. Be prepared now and if it returns HERD. Being unemployed and living on the street is just as bad. HERD. Not to mention an economic collapse. More then one doctor in the know has said this. MANAGE IT!

  • It just don't make sense because, all the churches get to stay open. While other people are sitting down losing money, losing jobs, losing opportunities. What's the point of a percentage of people sacrificing if the others don't.

  • I only hope that voting Floridians remember the act of genocide committed by DeSantis through his ignorance in not acting early and decisively in dealing with the coronavirus.

  • Captn Ron The OUTBOARDFANATIC says:

    Bummer what will all the New Yorkers do who fleed the stay at home order from Gov Cumo? No more Beach parties! Go Home Now?.Come back when its over!

  • Jonathan Still says:

    Why be informed ? As governnr you should be ready to accept rumours as fact . " My radar only showed cruise ships and party boats ,it didn't reveal any Chinese sabotuers approaching in PT boats trailing Flakka dust whatsoever ! I am just a Messianic good- looking boyish figurehead in times of emergency ! Should my responsibility as governor be for every other citizen without a lick of sense and grossly misinformed ? Geeez, Ron, give an old girl a break here !

  • Irwin Saltzman says:

    Within a week other states will be keeping Floridians out of their states. What ever chance Florida has to limit the spread of the virus has past.
    After the church gatherings this weekend the spread will accelerate across the state. Sorry governor but the virus has spread across most of the state. Exponential growth starts slow , by the time one recognizes the growth it is too late

  • I don't care if u are Republican or not the fact it took this man weeks to put in a state at home order should scream HES UNQUALIFIED FOR HIS POSITION

  • popweaselcrunch says:

    Why are Georgia's, Florida's and Mississippi's governors so…behind? Why are churches considered essential businesses in Florida. So now they will pay taxes if they are considered a business?

  • Question.. arent haircuts for men essential? If we wear a cover on our mouth and nose couldn't we still do haircuts on people? I realize perms and hair color aren't essential, but some guys really need their hair cut, to be clean and able to still be in the work force.
    When we cut hair we are not right in peoples face. Usually we are standing behind a person in the chair. And.. we can limit one person at a time to come into the shop. I think this is reasonable.
    ๐Ÿค” Please Mr senator can you evaluate this request?

  • Heer Kommando says:

    Voted for Ron, but he has handled this like an inept fool. Only once he talked with the President did it seem to get into his head that this is serious.

  • Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, & Wyoming not taken statewide measures against spreading COVID-19 where the continental USA is a swimming pool. The aforementioned states have basically told the remaining states – who took statewide measures against this state – we will just poop in only in their own area(s). What can go wrong with that scenario?

  • governor desantis, seems to be always late to facts. Florida voters, time to send ron to the GED section and review post secondary education credentials. And, no online studies will not count.

    LtGov Nunez, in the on deck circle .

  • The Holly Church of Trump, $2000 membership/year. The sad part is that morons like this stupid governor will line up to become members.

  • Giovanni Sanseviero says:

    This is what a pathetic person sounds like when their biggest concern is washing the president's undies, rather than doing what's best for the preservation of human life. We see right through you, DeSantis; you are as convincing as the president himself, which at best, is not at all. Shame on you.

  • 'Pro-Trump protesters defy stay-at-home order'. Good grucking fief; the overwhelming majority already know that these people are typical Trumpers: cupid stunts, and in need of radical therapy. If you want to endanger decent people, just stay away, and infect your fellow banjo-playing fuckwits (expletive justified) instead.

    ANYONE but trump 2020!
