Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis blasted Anthony Fauci after thousands of pages of emails were released showing the doctor’s contradicting positions and discussed how his state diverged from the arbitrary federal government health guidelines.

“I think [Fauci] is somebody who if you followed what he said, that he said you did a good job,” DeSantis said. “For example, he said New York has the best response to COVID. Obviously, in terms of the numbers, I don’t see how you could possibly say that both for COVID and all of the destruction that has happened. In Florida, we chose freedom over Fauci-ism.”
