Florida Governor Ron DeSantis gave an invisible finger to liberals on Sunday when he attended the Super Bowl without a mask. Not only did he go maskless, but he also gave an epic explanation as to why he didn’t wear one.
The Republican governor said on Monday, “Someone said, ‘Hey, you were at the Super Bowl without a mask. But how the hell am I going to be able to drink a beer with a mask on? Come on. I had to watch the Bucs win,” tweeted Politico’s Marc Caputo.
Caught DeSantis before he left an event and he brought up this picture on his own by saying, "Someone said, 'hey, you were at the Super Bowl without a mask' ... but how the hell am I going to be able to drink a beer with a mask on? Come on. I had to watch the Bucs win." https://t.co/OEDAeW2eGM

The photo of DeSantis shows him sitting in an executive suite at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. He appears to be speaking with someone next to him.
Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, though, was not in any mood to excuse the maskless Super Bowl fans. Castor was dour on all the fans without a mask.
“It is a little frustrating because we have worked so hard,” Castor said according to the Associated Press. “At this point in dealing with COVID-19, there is a level of frustration when you see that.”
Still, despite her earlier comments, Castor seemed to backtrack a bit by saying most did have masks.
“I’m proud to say the majority of individuals that I saw out and about enjoying the festivities associated with the Super Bowl were complying,” she said a few hours later. “They understood their level of personal responsibility, and they were doing the right thing. I’m very proud of that.”
Of course the CDC urged people to mask up for the Super Bowl and warned people not to throw Super Bowl parties and not to drink alcohol or cheer out loud for their team.
I can’t believe anyone is actually falling for their crap!
