Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is known for his ridiculous gaffes, but it’s rare that we get photographic evidence of the knucklehead in action. Despite weeks of hygiene techniques being crammed down his throat, DeSantis still doesn’t seem to understand how viruses are spread.
Exhibit A: Wednesday, while at a coronavirus briefing, DeSantis donned only one glove and no mask. He then went on to touch his gloved hand with his bare hand, as well as the microphone and his face multiple times.
At no point did it seem to occur to DeSantis that he was contaminating himself and everything around him.
And yes, of course he's touching his face. pic.twitter.com/JZqOBpHvxO
