Symone Sanders the former spokesperson and senior advisor to Kamala Harris joined host Chuck Todd on a segment of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily” on Wednesday, she admits that a governor who prided himself on rejecting restrictions actually did well with COVID.

Todd and the rest of the far-left panel also admitted that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is doing a good job handling the Covid 19 in Florida.

And of course, they quickly found other ways to criticize him. He is a Republican, after all. They also argued that DeSantis is “unafraid to put his hand on the hot stove” on hot button issues.

“Unafraid, and one could argue that much has been — I was critical of Gov. DeSantis, still am, during the height of Covid, but if you really look at the numbers, Florida actually came out all right,” Sanders chimed in.

Todd said, “He’s got a story to tell.”

“He has a story to tell,” Sanders agreed.

Another panelist interjected, “And the economy is strong.”

Sanders also agreed that Florida’s economy is strong.

Still, Sanders cautioned, “I think the facts, though, are you got to look under, I mean, what he’s doing with the math books makes no sense. Even Fox News analysts were like, ‘He has to come up with an explanation for this.’”

“And so it’s not all rosy. And so I think I would just caution us from heaping a little too much praise on Ron DeSantis,” she added.

Todd responded,And I don’t know if it’s praise ‘cause I think he’s taking on risk.”

Sanders’ comments appear to refer to Florida’s decision to reject over 50 math textbooks from the 2023 curriculum.

In a statement, DeSantis said, “It seems that some publishers attempted to slap a coat of paint on an old house built on the foundation of Common Core, and indoctrinating concepts like race essentialism, especially, bizarrely, for elementary school students.”

Gov. Ron DeSantis has bolstered his national political reputation among conservatives as he battled with the Biden administration over vaccine and mask mandates.

DeSantis let people decide to control the virus rather than be dictatorial.

But after 12 months in which he was pilloried as a reckless executive driven more by ideology than science, dogged by images of crowded beaches and bars and derided as “DuhSantis,” “DeathSantis” and “DeSatan,” Florida has fared no worse, and in some ways better, than many other states — including its big-state peers.

Any objective analysis of how Florida responded versus deep blue states such as New York, New Jersey, and California shows DeSantis was much better.

Florida has done all right with COVID under DeSantis, They’re 17th out of the 50 states in deaths per capita, but holding down deaths from a novel virus is a special challenge in a state with so many retirees. They’ve still managed to fare better than other purple jurisdictions like Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, and Pennsylvania, all of which have higher death rates than Florida does.
