Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis responds with sophistication to Brianna Keilar calling him “an ass,” according to Fox News.
“You know what, I don’t seek validation by the media,” DeSantis told “Tucker Carlson Tonight”. “What I seek is supporting the citizens of my state, and I can’t tell you, as this pandemic has worn on, the number of times someone has come up to me with tears in their eyes saying, ‘If it wasn’t for you, my kid would not be in school and I would not have my job.’
“That is why I’m in this job,” he added.
During a press conference, Rosa Flores shouted, “Governor, what has gone wrong with the rollout of the vaccine that we’ve seen phone lines jammed, websites crashing?”
DeSantis responded that there is “a lot of demand.”
Flores continued to speak over De Santis.
“Excuse me, excuse me, you just said, ‘What has gone wrong?’ so I’m answering the question,” DeSantis interjected.
“If I could complete the question, though,” Flores began.
“So you’re going to give a speech or are you going to ask a question?” DeSantis shot back. “You asked a question and I’m going to answer it.”

Flores accused DeSantis of not having a plan to make sure that senior citizens don’t have to wait in long lines for the vaccine.
“I think it’s very clear some of these networks obviously, they have agendas,” he said. “They are not trying to report facts anymore. It’s all about spinning whatever narratives they think can get ratings and that’s just the reality of the situation, so it doesn’t impact me.”
The governor pledged to “continue keeping our eye on the ball and working as hard as we can to deliver results.”
Tucker Carlson said, “They think you’re going to be the Republican nominee. That’s why they’re attacking you,” he said.
De Santis did not confirm or deny Carlson’s comment but did say that he “will be the governor nominee in 2022 here in Florida,” adding that he “look[s] forward to running that race.”
More from Fox News:
DeSantis criticized the CNN reporter for not researching the issues raised in her question. He said that the coronavirus vaccine was distributed to hospitals and the hospitals decide how to dispense it.
DeSantis told Carlson Tuesday that he wears the media scrutiny as a “badge of honor,” calling it an indication of his state’s success in safely reopening schools and businesses while maintaining a low COVID-19 mortality rate statewide.
