If Stephen King has a unique knack for crafting horror stories in fiction, then Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has a unique knack for crafting horror stories in real life. DeSantis has made just about every corrupt decision, boneheaded move, and arrogant tantrum a leader can make.
Fittingly, Stephen King had this to say on Twitter about the DeSantis debacle: “Hey, Florida–here’s your man Ron DeSantis: Not only are COVID infections in Florida sky high, the beaches are almost uninhabitable due to red tide from the Piney Point disaster, and the fish kill is in the mega tons.”
Stephen King added this: “DeSantis policies are right-wing ‘the individual rules and to hell with what happens’ policies. They are turning a beautiful state into a big ICU ward where even healthy people can barely breathe.”
