DeSantis Threatens To Cut Hospital Funding If Surgeons Keep Wearing Masks



You have to feel sorry for all the satirists out there these days. Prediction or parody, that is the question!

1. Behind every parody is a reality. And behind every reality there's a parody. It's the gift that

just keeps on giving.

3. Seriously...

If I donít see that itís from the Onion, it would be hard to tell with these dipshits.

I feel sorry for the satirists too. The most outrageous sounding satire still has the possibility of being reality.

17. I read stuff so ridiculous then have to ask myself is this true. The schools don't have to tell

parents about positive covid tests. I read that to my wife and then said no that canít be true but apparently it is true. The theatre of the absurd.

7. The Onion probably just gave DeathSantis

his next big idea to lower health care costs.
Those masks are expensive.

8. I knew it had to be Borowitz or the Onion.

And since Borowitz had one released yesterday, the Onion it is ! Its crazy that you get to recognize the originators of these merely from the titles.

As always, they're so close to the truth some people cant tell if it's fact or fiction. That's the sign of good satire. Or really stupid politicians.

10. This asshole probably did cut hospital funding

for lots of pandemic era stuff like telemedicine and PPE/ventilators to pretend that COVID is over.

12. before I clicked I knew it was satire (and likely The Onion), BUT that prick DeathSantis IS crazy

enough to actually do something like this.

Down the shitter Floriduh plummets.

13. I just sent it to a bunch of people I know, just to see how many don't recognize its satire

People believe whatever they read without checking, most of those are repubs.

15. Hook, Line, & Sinker I bought it.

I was looking for context. Surgeons were wearing masks where? On a CDC public service announcement? Facebook? In front of their hospitals? At the "governors" office?

A beautiful illustration of redneck's celebrated ignorance. trumpesque defiance of sanity, and "just because I can". trumpian hogwash, look at me, I'm such a badass, I'll cut your funding!
The Onion makes me laugh 😂 until I cry!

As a State, our politics have fallen down the rabbit hole where nothing is ever as it seems.

31. As a family we have property in Florida

I boycotted while trump was President and now I have to boycott cause DeSantis and the death cult. Would love to get over for a couple of weeks, but the idiots you live beside have made that impossible, so I really do feel your pain.
