Ron DeSantis and Anti-Mask Kid Interviewed by Fox News

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did a disturbing interview on Fox News with a kid who says that she doesn’t like to wear masks. The entire scene looked like a hostage video with DeSantis sitting there looking smug the entire time. The kid said, “I’m not wearing a mask because you touch it and you have germs on your hand and then you put it on your face and breathe in all your germs.” It’s a strange instinct by a governor and a large media outlet to turn to a second grader to weigh public policy matters, but that’s exactly what they decided to do. Another possibility would be to look at the studies and listen to public health experts on the efficacy of mask-wearing and other mitigation measures. Unfortunately, many on the right have things so backwards now that when faced with these two options, they choose to side with a second grader hand-picked by Ron DeSantis. Fox also could have chosen to interview the loved ones of people who died of COVID because the people around them didn’t get themselves vaccinated or wear masks, but that wouldn’t fit into their narrative about vaccines and mask-wearing being a “freedom” issue instead of a public health issue.
