Florida Politics reports:
Gov. Ron DeSantis vows action on the state level to oppose recent COVID-19 vaccine mandates from President Joe Biden. Saying Biden was “acting outside of the Constitution,” DeSantis on Friday vowed he was “going to have the Legislature involved as well” to “fight back and offer protections.”
DeSantis, speaking at a 9/11 observance event, framed his resistance to Biden around the military oath he took ahead of his own commission as an officer. “When I served in the Navy, I remember very distinctly taking an oath as a commissioned officer,” DeSantis said. “Your number one responsibility was to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
“I think now is the time that we’re going to do that. When you have a President like Biden issuing unconstitutional edicts against the American people, we have a responsibility to stand up for the Constitution and fight back,” DeSantis added. DeSantis returned to this theme later in the day, saying that Biden’s action was simply him having a “hissy fit.”
