(FreedomWire.org) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis could be a possible 2024 presidential candidate. Now the democrats are making up lies against him to try to ruin his chances.

The White House recently told multiple lies to the media. Here is what they have been saying.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is now allowing healthcare providers — including pediatricians and children’s hospitals — to order COVID-19 vaccines from a federal program for children between six months and 5 years old, a reversal from earlier this week when providers were prevented from preordering doses, White House officials told McClatchy.

This came straight from the White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

“We are encouraged that after repeated failures by Gov DeSantis to order COVID-19 vaccines even after every other state had ordered, the State of Florida is now permitting health care providers to order COVID-19 vaccines for our youngest children. We believe it is critical to allow parents everywhere to have the choice to get their kids vaccinated and have a conversation with their pediatrician or health care provider. Even though Governor DeSantis reversed course and is now ordering vaccines, we will pull every lever to get pediatricians across Florida vaccines as quickly as possible.”

Several problems with these claims. First, the government doesn’t dictate to doctors or hospitals what to get for their patients. Both Jean-Pierre and the media are casting this as DeSantis wouldn’t “allow” this. Doctors and hospitals were not prohibited from getting vaccines; the only thing DeSantis was saying was that the state wasn’t going to pre-order it, on behalf of the state. As DeSantis said, “Doctors can get it. Hospitals can get it. But there’s not going to be any state programs that are going to be trying to get COVID jabs to infants and toddlers and newborns.”

So, the White House’s claim that DeSantis had somehow forbidden doctors and hospitals to get it was a lie. It was also a lie that he had “reversed course” — he never changed his position.

The Governor’s press secretary Christina Pushaw took them apart.

However, the White House continued to lie, saying “something had changed.”

Pushaw just decimated them.
