Joe Biden is terrified of Ron DeSantis, and it’s not just because DeSantis is showing the world how to deal with Covid-19. There’s something deeper here – like the knowledge that DeSantis is looking like the rightful heir to President Donald J. Trump, and could crush Democrats in 2024.
That’s why Biden is mulling over measures to impose domestic travel restrictions on the state of Florida. It’s pure political payback, and an effort to crush DeSantis before he gets too popular.
This is nothing short of political payback and tyranny towards a state with exceptional leadership and a common-sense, scientific approach to COVID-19.
The Biden administration must stop these considerations. https://t.co/GKrXs0vlX2

Some conservatives have rightly pointed out that travel bans were considered racist just last year – how quickly things change.
Trump got massive blowback for having travel restrictions against countries the Obama Administration considered a terrorist threat.
Biden wants to open our borders to world but close the borders of Florida. https://t.co/ErSjQW6Ap1

“There are active conversations about what could help mitigate spread here, but we have to follow the data and what’s going to work,” a White House official said. “We did this with South Africa, we did this with Brazil, because we got clear guidance. But we’re having conversations about anything that would help mitigate spread.”
Don’t be fooled. They aren’t “following the data” unless it’s the 2024 polling data.
As for DeSantis, he won’t take this sitting down. Biden may find that he bit off more than he could chew.
