Rachel Maddow could not help herself.
Everyone on the left is gunning for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Rachel Maddow picked a fight with Ron DeSantis. This is why it backfired in a major way.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
Rachel Maddow led the corporate media charge to try and bring down Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
But Maddow and her media allies got some bad news.
And Rachel Maddow made one awful mistake picking this major fight with Ron DeSantis.
The corporate media’s been smearing Governor Ron DeSantis with lies, hoaxes and conspiracy theories for over a year.
Liberals erupted in rage after DeSantis proved that lockdowns as well as mask and vaccine mandates had no basis in science or reality by keeping Florida open during the coronavirus pandemic.
Governor DeSantis fighting back against Dr. Fauci and his tyrannical edicts shot DeSantis to the top in the 2024 GOP nomination battle.
Democrats judged DeSantis to be a top threat to their power and Democrats’ allies in the media engaged in a futile quest to destroy DeSantis.
The latest debunked attack came from Rachel Maddow who claimed Dr. Joseph Ladapo – who Governor DeSantis appointed as the state’s surgeon general – lied about being a frontline doctor and never treated any COVID patients.
“And four of these sources tell us that before that press conference he took part in on the steps of the Supreme Court in July of 2020, in which he billed himself as one of America’s frontline doctors, our sources who worked alongside him at UCLA tell us they do not believe Dr. Ladapo had actually treated COVID patients at all at UCLA. They also say his numerous op-eds greatly mischaracterized the type of work he was doing during the pandemic,” Maddow falsely claimed.
Dr. Ladapo’s real crime is that he actually follows the data and rejects school mask mandates and vaccine passports as failed strategies that have no foundation in science.
In an interview with Breitbart, Dr. Ladapo pushed back on Maddow’s falsehood by explaining that when he was a doctor at the UCLA hospital he treated COVID patients early on in the outbreak.
“I was taking care of patients with COVID-19 when I was working in the hospital in March, and this is before the COVID-19 team treatment team was established,” Dr. Ladapo stated. “So I was taking care of patients when I was working in the hospital that week and then I actually volunteered to be on the COVID-19 team. There’s documentation of that.”
Dr. Ladapo said he volunteered for the COVID team, but withdrew after it conflicted with his ability to pick his children up from school.
But, Dr. Ladapo explained that in January when the UCLA hospital disbanded the COVID team, all doctors – Ladapo included – treated COVID patients.
“And then when the team was dissolved, the COVID-19 team was dissolved in January 2021, patients with COVID came to all the medical teams. So I had those patients when they came to the hospital from the emergency department. They came directly to my team,” Dr. Ladapo added.
The corporate media’s desperation to halt Ron DeSantis’ political rise brought out the worst in so-called “reporters’” liberal bias and dishonesty.
