'Don't Fauci my Florida!' Gov. Ron DeSantis sells beer koozies and T-shirts mocking top doctor's COVID-19 restrictions

 Ahead of his 2022 gubernatorial campaign, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is selling beer koozies and t-shirts mocking Dr. Anthony Fauci's coronavirus restrictions.  

Available on DeSantis's campaign website for $12, are red koozies imprinted with the words: 'How the hell am I going to be able to drink a beer with a mask on?' along with blue koozies imprinted with the words: 'Don't Fauci my Florida.'  

The phrase is a jab at the Chief White House medical adviser, who has become the butt of jokes for Republicans due to his preventative approach to the deadly coronavirus and mask-wearing.

The new merchandise was announced on DaSantis' campaign's 'Team DeSantis' Twitter account Monday. 

'NEW TODAY: Our team just dropped EXCLUSIVE merchandise on our brand-new @WINRED storefront.' the tweet read. 'Trust us...You don't want to miss out on this' 

Also available on the website are flags resembling former President Trump's campaign paraphernalia that say 'Keep Florida Free.'   

DeSantis and Fauci have continuously disputed over the coronavirus pandemic, with the governor enthusiastically opposing Fauci's stance on social distancing, lockdowns and mask-wearing.


Their feud dates back to when Fauci publicly criticized DeSantis for opening up Florida's economy ahead of schedule last year.  

'When you're dealing with community spread, and you have the kind of congregate setting where people get together, particularly without masks, you're really asking for trouble,' Fauci said at the time on ABC's 'Good Morning America.' 'Now's the time actually to double down a bit, and I don't mean close.' 

As Covid swept the U.S. in early 2020, DeSantis continued to keep Florida beaches open, rejecting mask ordinances and all restrictions on businesses in May.

As political leaders across the spectrum embraced mask-wearing amid growing evidence of their effectiveness, DeSantis continued to avoid statewide mask requirements.

Since Trump left office in January, DeSantis is viewed as a potential favorite among Republicans to be the GOP presidential nominee in 2024.     

Last week, the seven-day rolling average of daily new COVID-19 cases was up 47 percent from two weeks ago, and hospitalizations were up 11 percent, according to a DailyMail.com analysis of U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.

Around 93 percent of COVID-19 cases in recent days have occurred in counties with vaccination rates of less than 40 percent, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told a media briefing on Thursday.  

According to CDC data updated Tuesday evening, the Delta variant, also known as B.1.617.2, makes up 51.7 per cent of all new infections.

Health officials say that the fast-spreading Delta variant first identified in India is racing through areas with low vaccination rates, eroding gains made in beating back the virus.
