I’m not sure what about being inoculated with a vaccine developed under the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed — and made available to her under DeSantis’s distribution plan — makes Fried swell up with personal pride in her own “real strength.” A feeling of gratitude toward the scientists responsible for producing this safe and effective medical miracle in such short order would seem to be the proper emotional response to being offered it.

Ron DeSantis really is blessed with all the right enemies.
