Gov. DeSantis joins Florida second-grader suspended for refusing to wear mask: 'Totally unacceptable'

Fiona, joined by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, said on “Fox & Friends” that she doesn’t like wearing a mask.

FLORIDA SLASHED FEDERAL AID TO SCHOOLS WITH MASK MANDATES, DEFYING BIDEN WARNING

“I’m not wearing a mask because you touch it, and you have germs on your hand,” she said. “And then you put it on your face and breathe in all the germs.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a law in July that banned schools from requiring students to wear masks. Several counties, including Palm Beach where Fiona attends school, have since defied DeSantis’ mask ban.
