Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is a pretty popular guy.
He recently made an appearance during a live music show to remind the audience that Florida has handled the pandemic well and is completely open. The crowd cheered.
The Capitolist reports:
DeSantis receives star treatment at first live music festival since pandemic
As gubernatorial candidate and Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried spends the weekend putting out fires sparked by her last-minute “revisions” to her financial disclosures, Governor Ron DeSantis emerges out of smoke on a concert stage to receive star treatment in Panama City Beach from a crowd of over 20,000.
Video from this weekend’s Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam shows the governor emerging out of the smoke on the concert venue’s runway as “Crazy Train” blares and roughly 22,000 country music fans erupt into thunderous applause. He throws his arms in the air, encouraging the crowd even more, clearly enjoying the experience.
“Amazing,” a man backstage is heard on a video saying as DeSantis takes the stage, “that guy’s a rock star.”
DeSantis made a surprise appearance to the concert last night to welcome country music fans to Panama City Beach and thank them for attending what is believed to be the first major live music festival event since COVID.
Watch the video below, this is awesome.
Florida just hosted the largest concert since the pandemic began because FLORIDA CHOSE FREEDOM OVER FAUCISM.
