There was big news accompanied by hilarious news out of Florida. Governor Ron DeSantis signed a sweeping bill banning Covid-19 vaccine mandates in the state. But what many are talking about has little to do with the legislation and a whole lot to do with where he signed the bill.

“The significance of signing this legislation in Brandon, Florida, is not lost on the governor,” DeSantis press secretary Christina Pushaw said Thursday.
Troll Level: Supreme
According to Fox News:
DeSantis signed four bills from the COVID-19 special legislative session into law, which will require private employers to allow vaccine exemptions including, but not limited to health or religious concerns; pregnancy or anticipated future pregnancy; and past recovery from COVID-19. The legislation also prevents schools from requiring students to be vaccinated, strips the surgeon general’s ability to mandate vaccines, and takes steps for Florida to exit the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
“Nobody should lose their job due to heavy-handed COVID mandates and we had a responsibility to protect the livelihoods of the people of Florida,” DeSantis said.
The crowd chanted “Let’s go, Brandon” after state Attorney General Ashley Moody celebrated the bill signing being held in her “hometown” of Brandon.
Famously based second-grader Fiona Lashells joined him.

Love him (as most conservatives do) or hate him (as the entirety of the left does), Governor DeSantis can say one thing about his job. No governor in the nation is having as much fun as he is.
