WATCH: DeSantis Scorches Media for Getting Coronavirus Predictions Wrong

Says reporters 'waxed poetically' as they tried 'to find a boogeyman'

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis unloaded on members of the news media Wednesday for their erroneous predictions about the spread of the deadly coronavirus in the Sunshine State.

“You’ve got a lot of people in your profession [journalists] who waxed poetically for weeks and weeks, about how Florida was going to be just like New York. ‘Wait two weeks, Florida’s going to be next;’ ‘Just like Italy, wait two weeks.’ Well hell, we’re eight weeks away from that, and it hasn’t happened,” DeSantis, a Republican, told reporters in Orlando, as Vice President Mike Pence stood next to him.

“I was the No. 1 landing spot from tens of thousands of people leaving the No. 1 hot zone in the world to come to my state,” he continued.
