DeathSantis asks students to remove their masks

Before a speech at the University of South Florida, Governor and potential GOP presidential candidate, Ron DeSantis was filmed telling a group of high school students standing behind him, "You do not have to wear those masks. I mean, please take them off. Honestly, it's not doing anything and we've gotta stop with this COVID theater. So if you want to wear it, fine, but this is ridiculous."

While some of the students could be seen removing their masks in response to the comments, others kept them on. Hillsborough Schools Superintendent Addison Davis said the district was "proud of the manner in which our students represented themselves," noting that it is their choice "to protect their health in a way they feel most appropriate."

It's one thing to not require masks, but quite another to actively discourage them to make yourself look better.

It's beyond that -- I feel almost like what he was trying to do was to attempt to shame those who want to wear masks. That is beyond ridiculous, since he has no idea what a student might be dealing with-- they could have an underlying condition, they could be living with someone with an underlying condition, etc.

To me, this behavior verges on willful negligence that could result in deaths ... it probably has already.

COVID theatre. So, when do those 950,000 American extras get to stop pretending to be dead?

Exactly, it's bullying. My district (and whole state) are removing masks in schools but kids can continue if they want.
