Trump pal Ron DeSantis blasted as a ‘spoiled child’ for treating Floridians like ‘third-class citizens’

Local politicians in Florida had harsh words for Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis after the mayor of Hialeah was reportedly left out of a meeting on the state’s COVID-19 outbreak.

“The mayor of Hialeah, the second-largest city in Miami-Dade County, said Tuesday that he was denied entry to a roundtable that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis held with several city mayors to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Miami Herald reported Tuesday.

“Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernandez said he didn’t receive an invitation, but Miami Mayor Francis Suarez informed him the roundtable was taking place. When Hernandez tried to walk in, he told the Miami Herald, a member of the governor’s staff told him he wasn’t invited and couldn’t enter,” the newspaper reported.

In a statement, Hernandez blasted the governor.

“The reason why this pandemic is taking and destroying the lives of our residents is because our governor acts like a spoiled child. His lack of leadership and disrespect towards others was evident today,” he wrote. “Gov. DeSantis has treated the residents of Hialeah like third-class citizens by not allowing us to participate in such an important meeting.

“There is no justification for what happened today and even less so by the Mayor of Miami-Dade County, Carlos Gimenez, that allowed for this to happen, in his office. The inferiority complex of both these elected officials overpowers any intent that they may have to save their community. This pandemic has only worsened due to their lack of competence to handle it,” he declared.

Florida state Rep. Cindy Polo (D-Hialeah) also blasted DeSantis.

“The governor doesn’t give a sh*t about my city unless it’s to pander for votes,” she charged.

‘One whopper after another’: CNN’s Acosta tears into Trump for lying the Postal Service can’t deliver enough ballots

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta slammed President Donald Trump's litany of lies about mail-in voting at the day's coronavirus press briefing.

"Right at the end of that press conference, the president was just telling one whopper after another about mail-in voting, at one point saying that he doesn't believe that the U.S. Postal Service has the ability to deal with mail-in balloting at election time," said Acosta. "We just need to point out, the U.S. Postal Service put out a statement late this afternoon that says, 'the Postal Service has ample capacity to adjust our nationwide processing and delivery network to meet projected election and political mail volume, including any additional volume that may result as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.'"

The disparity between the rich and the poor has expanded in America during the coronavirus pandemic and government shutdowns, NBC News reported Monday.

"The Federal Reserve slashed interest rates, bought more than $2 trillion in debt and created new lending “facilities,” which flooded the financial system with money and rallied stocks," NBC News reported. "That has been a boon for investors, but the vast majority of stocks owned in the U.S. belong to the wealthiest 10 percent."
