Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has started offering branded merchandise featuring slogans like “Don’t Fauci My Florida,” in a reference to the COVID-19 restrictions endorsed by infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, The Washington Post reports.
DeSantis’ campaign store now features several items with this slogan and similar ones, such as flags with the slogan, “Keep Florida Free,” and a drink koozie that says, “How the hell am I going to be able to drink a beer with a mask on?”
Fauci and other medical experts recommended that Americans wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic, but the issue became a partisan sticking point, with many conservatives pushing back on mask requirements and other safety recommendations.
