Seems like a solid approach to me. As we all know, viruses, as well as pathogens of all types, respond very well to right-wing extremism, torrential lies, and the belief system of Evangelical Christians.
The fact you have 415K COVID-19 cases, that you’re adding more that 10K/day, that you’re running out of ICU beds, and your state has a positivity rate of 14% are all immaterial.
Seriously, you’re the Republican governor of Florida. If you don’t follow Trump on key matters like this, those people will feed you to the alligators.
